We’ve continued our dedication to make the best do-it-all kite in the skies. Keeping it as easy and versatile as possible, and staying true to what our riders know and love about SuperModel. This year we have a completely new frame construction, making it faster, lighter, and more responsive, without sacrificing any stability or durability.
We’ve taken its performance to the next level.
HTF comes from analyzing how kites turn, and then using a combination of two different materials. Each with different characteristics, placed on sections of the frame where they fulfill different needs.
The center of the leading edge is made out of stiff dacron that has proven its stiffness for decades. By using it for the center section of the LE, SuperModel HTF kite keeps enormous stiffness and rigidity right where you want it, to keep it stable and prevent any collapsing in extremely overpowered conditions.
Our new FlexLite is made of a thinner, tighter yarn, that reacts quicker to pull and compression that happens in the material when a kite is steered. We’ve placed it on the sections of the frame that are key to making a kite turn.
When you steer your kite, torsion starts at the wing tip and propagates to the entire kite and Leading Edge. HTF is the result of analyzing how kites turn, and using our purposefully tuned FLEXLITE in those key areas. This allows for a much quicker response to steering input.
The second part of HTF is using FlexLite to build SuperModel’s struts. They allow the entire canopy to twist easier, translating your bar input straight into the canopy.
This makes SUPERMODEL HTF more responsive, turn faster, and have an even better finishing of the turns.
You will jump higher, and pull easier kiteloops with more confidence. It re-directs quicker while wave-riding, and generates more power in underpowered conditions. It truly benefits every aspect of kiting.
The super-segmented wing tip provides the smoothest turning engagement of any kite for maximum efficiency of your steering power.
FLEXLITE in the torsion zone quickly creates torsion into the entire LE for a much quicker steering response
Thinner, lighter flex struts translate steering input straight into the canopy.
Creates a smooth transition between the two materials used in the leading edge. Improving performance and durability.
Pure Dyneema bridles, weaved at a low angle. De- and pre-stretched to the highest standard for virtually no stretch over time: keeping the kites characteristics over time.
The high density of yarn per square meter makes this canopy one of the stiffest and strongest on the market for the most reactive and best-performing kite.
In order to ensure the best quality possible, most of pieces on the kite are stitched using CNC sewing machine.
Fine-tuned bridles on every size, making the whole range extremely consistent from one size to another.
SuperModel HTF is designed with the goal to have it react and fly to perfection. The main focus is the way it performs, feels, turns, forgives, and is predictable, no matter if we are riding a twintip, a waveboard, or a foil. The end-goal is taking your riding to the next level and making your sessions more fun.
One key characteristic of SuperModel is how it swings out of the turns. This specifically will allow you to keep more flying speed in your kite to create more power, while staying very light. This means you can ride a smaller kite, and have more constant pull during your turns while riding waves, you will finish your kite loop with confidence, you will land your jumps smoother, and you will be able to steer your kite in marginal wind when riding underpowered on a foil.
Our unique profile provides incredible stability to make the kite super forgiving while delivering the most glide in jumps. Our Wingtip shape supplies instant response for quick turning to give great punch when sending a jump to easily get high quickly, because in the end, we all like to jump as high and long as possible.
Any discipline, all conditions:
SUPERMODEL has a very consistent pull through the entire loop, and because it keeps accelerating throughout the turn, it will always catch you comfortably.
From your first controlled kiteloops, to going higher than you ever thought possible:
SUPERMODEL has great drift and generates a lot of power in the turns, allowing you to ride a smaller kite in light winds. Low-wind relaunches happen in a jiffy, and fast turning lets you put SuperModel exactly where you want it.
When you're freeriding, you want a stable, easy kite that is forgiving in all conditions. You want it to handle light wind with ease, and absorb every stormy gust.
Endless fun and effortless control:
You want a kite that drifts extremely well when thundering down the line. Has very precise turning when you're ready to edge into that bottom turn, and instant de-power when you need it.
No matter how big the wave gets:
Strapless riding is perhaps the most demanding discipline for a kite. You need it to be stable, easy, intuitive, and above all - have very precise de-power.
If you want to stick to your strapless board like glue:
Thanks to SUPERMODEL's quick steering, it will yank you up when you jump, and the perfectly balanced bridles will keep making you go higher and higher.
If you're looking to reach new heights:
Perfectly balanced bridles will keep SUPERMODEL flying forward when unhooked. Thanks to the small Leading Edge, it will shoot forward quickly, giving you lots of pop and slack.
