The Shadow resulted from the collaboration of our test pilots. The goal was to create a light wind kite that had full freestyle abilities (mastery of all of the old and new tricks while ensuring a high level of precision), and attained the hovering properties of an UL kite.
We think that the Shadow was extremely successful in meeting these goals. With the Shadow, pilots can be ready to work on tricks with even the slightest breeze on a quiet day. The light weight and elegant appearance of this kite take you away from the daily grind for a while. With an MP3 Player and the right music in your ear, flying the Shadow could become meditation. The construction of the Shadow is very light. It is a kite for advanced pilots and experts.
Listed below are factors that make this one of the best "Light Wind" kite on the market.
Additional reinforcements on the stand-offs and spine
Covered leading edge connectors: the flight line can slip through securely
New type of adjustable HQ Jojo stoppers
Additional catch leg on the bridle to prevent winding around the spine
Light frame from 4mm carbon tubes and Dynamic T12 for a wide wind range
Additional weight on the tail for rolling up tricks and safe backspins
