You are looking for a kite you can rely on 100%? Who can’t let you climb airy heights in borderline situations in the backcountry?

With the Apex, we have developed the perfect kite for the backcountry. Maximum control, high stability and sufficient depower performance make it the companion that helps you to increase your personal level continuously. Don’t worry about mistakes, the Apex forgives a lot and makes the entry into the world of kitesurfing especially easy.

performance

The Apex’s features are perfectly matched to the needs of beginners and backcountry riders. A gentle unfolding of the traction force and a high depowering power make the kite extremely controllable. With enough power in the loop, there are sufficient reserves of power to be able to react quickly to gradients or changing winds.

Shape

The Apex has a small number of chambers with a thick profile. It has been specially developed for use in difficult wind conditions to ensure maximum stability. The last chambers were deliberately not leashed so that the apex develops an optimal flow ratio at the wingtips.

Bridle

Apex scales are made entirely of robust, coated Dyneema, which guarantees a long service life in harsh environments. Mixer leash and pulleys are perfectly matched to each other.

Material:

As a sailcloth, an extremely robust 40D ripstop nylon is used, which has proven itself over the years. The inner material of the ribs consists of a robust cloth and is additionally reinforced at the profile holes with webbing straps.

Properties:

  • Excellent control also in limits
  • Extremely stable, high depower output
  • Intermediately on a leash, with much available power
  • Extremely easy to fly

In designing the bridle for the ONYX, we placed great emphasis on keeping the bar pressures low, while still ensuring the rider gets adequate feedback. The well-dimensioned 4-point bridle does exactly the job, at the same time providing maximum control and stability even in depower mode.
And the bridle's color coding makes it even easier to attach our One Bar 2.0.

When it comes to the materials of the ONYX, we have cut no corners. Durability was clearly a top priority.
We used only proven materials, such as the Techno Force D2 cloth, an extremely tear-resistant double-ripstop nylon, as well as a lightweight and hard-wearing IYU Dacron for maximum stiffness of the leading edge.
For the bridle we chose a spliced and stitched Liros line that is extremely tear- and abrasion-resistant.
The entire finish is top of the line, and that is why taped seams and molded parts for the one-pump-system are standard features of the ONYX.
In addition, all stress points were reinforced with further abrasion-resistant materials.

The ONYX has a deep-cut sail design that lends the kite enormous stability.
The special position of the wingtips and a nose that is slightly pulled forward make any water re-launch child's play.
Large Dacron reinforcements on the wingtips create a perfect balance in the center of the kite, avoiding a front stall tendency in critical situations.
The 3-strut design is ideal for a kite meant to be both light and agile. The rigid structure prevents strong warping around the middle strut and gives the kite a more direct and faster spin, which results in a very dynamic riding style.

The ONYX offers riders a wide performance spectrum.
Good lift and a lot of hangtime make the ONYX the perfect freerider.
With the ONYX it quickly becomes clear how easy it is to access power, to jump or just to cruise.
Even in difficult wind conditions, the ONYX shows an easy-to-control and good-natured behavior that never demands too much of the rider.
Despite the low aspect ratio of the wing, you will find yourself easily moving upwind. The ONYX loves to cruise, but also carves neatly in the waves with a good downwind drift.
Due to the deep shape of the kite with lots of sail at the center chord, the kite has a very high linear depower capacity as well as a wide wind range.
Even in light winds there is always enough power on hand to get you on the water right away. The bar feel is perfectly tuned and you can always sense where your kite is. In flight, the ONYX keeps a stable course and simply absorbs any wind gusts.
