ELEVEIGHT KITES FS 2022 | FREESTYLE | FREERIDE | MEGALOOP | WAKESTYLE KITE
Exploding into 2022 is the new Eleveight FreestyleSeries Kite, or FS for short. Eleveight's flagship freestyle kite - with revolutionary Open-C design is fine-tuned for the ultimate freestyle and big air maneuvers. Eleveight Pro Team Rider Arthur Guillebert won the 2021 GKA Freestyle World Championship riding his trusty and explosive FS kites!
The FS kite’s explosive high-performance characteristics will allow you to boost higher, loop harder, and pop more aggressively than ever before. This radical freestyle and big air flagship kite is tailored to the needs of professional riders while ensuring that the performance is accessible to those climbing the ranks. The Open-C design has all the traits of a genuine C-kite with direct control, explosive lift, and a wide angle-of-attack that comes into play when looping the kite or popping out of the water. It is the most progressive kite design a rider can choose for advanced action while still incredibly stable. With great upwind performance, the FS covers a huge wind range and V5 has a more projected area for even greater efficiency.

Changes for 2022:
This year we’ve fine-tuned bridles for maximum stability and dramatically reduced weight across all sizes making the FS more agile and dynamic. Thinner LE tips now decrease the risk of bridle wrap meaning riders have better control when handle passing or performing advanced freestyle moves. V5 has a redesigned frame structure between the inflatable parts and the ripstop to optimize load transition for improved stability and durability. The new 2 step force transition on the tips also ensures constant power development putting the rider in control. Looping a kite has never been more accessible and fun. The FS is the kite of choice if you’re looking to match your own raw power and tear down limits!

"The FS is made for radical maneuvers. It combines leading materials with a cutting edge design to deliver explosive power when going for the next boost."
Even the Kite Mag ultimate test team thinks this is the best freestyle kite on the market (2020)
''Eleveight Kiteboarding's FS kite serves the needs of riders going for performance freestyle or radical freeride. The Open-C design with high aspect ratio, low sweep and short bridles is made for extreme kite loops and technical handlepass tricks. Despite its high-performance DNA, the FS is easy to handle, which makes it accessible to a large audience of kiteboarders, intermediate and newer riders can and will enjoy the FS in all types of real-world wind conditions. However, when required the FS kite is stealthily waiting and ready to help kiteboarders of all levels elevate their freestyle tricks to another level.
...High end materials are used throughout with Teijin four core ripstop and a fairly generous amount of Dacron scalloped into the trailing edge and behind the studs. It looks like the sort of kite that can, and probably will, take a good kicking...
...You can tell there are some very experienced designers behind the Eleveight products when you feel something as instantly entertaining and familiar as the FS in your hands all it's going to do is help you improve as a rider. It's a flatwater performer of the very highest calibre.'' The Kite Mag
