New Takoon Reflex C- Kite




New release from Takoon Reflex kite second generation C-Kite Hybird with 4 struts.

> HYBRID C WITH 4 STRUTS

> FREERIDE / NEW SCHOOL / WAVE / FREESTYLE

> C ORIENTED FEEL

> LINEAR POWER / DEPOWER

> EASY UNHOOKED RIDING

The new Reflex design is focussed on
versatility and control - a very predictable “one
for all kite” to ride in all locations and conditions.
The optimal weight/rigidity ratio is achieved due to
its 4 strut design. Its hybrid C shape and moderate
aspect ratio offer direct bar pressure and unmatched
stability.

The Reflex design is hybrid in nature but “C” at
heart. The idea is to provide a direct bar feel which
brings precision piloting and ensures easy progress.
You know at all times where the kite is in
the air without looking at it, and its direct steering
allows you to manouever it to precisely where you
want at all times.

The leading edge bridle provides exceptional shape
support and effective distribution of canopy loads
across the entire kite when depowered, making it
really efficient and safe. The Reflex offers a fluid
ride, makes upwind riding easy and supports a
large wind range.

The specific location of the 4 struts on the Reflex
offers optimal efficiency, the strut-less central
section increases power for fast planning and good
lift when jumping and excellent low end grunt.



WIND RANGE:

5m2 7m2 9m2 12m2
(22<40) (17<33) (15<27) (9<19)

The Reflex provides excellent pop for wakestyle
due to its specialist shape and power generation is
optimised due to its swept-back profile. Unhooked
riding and new school moves become easy as
the kite flies effortlessly without trimming.

The tip design creates an exceptionally reactive
kite with unmatched turning ability, perfect for
wave riding. Its ease of use will give you
confidence to push your limits.

The moderate aspect ratio offers an easy and
stable kite. This provides automatic take off from
the wingtips in every situation. The Reflex offers the
best re-launch ability of any kite in the Takoon
range.

The new Reflex construction gives this kite the best
chance of surviving in demanding conditions. It is
reinforced at all critical wear & tear points and has a
single inflation system for added simplicity.
