This 3-strut high aspect power house kite is designed specifically for Freestyle, wave and big air, this is our all time all rounder!!. Aggressive pop, controlled slacking and precise finger responsive steering make it ideal for all disciplines, especially in MEGA loops! Controlled slacking is a must in Freestyle but is also a great characteristic for drifting in waves. The finger light responsive steering make sure your always in control even if you don't know where your kite is, plus this feature makes for the smoothest rotations in kite loops. The aggressive profile design will boost you to the moon and your highest jumps ever. New features for 2021 are slightly higher aspect and a more closed ARC for tighter loops, faster turning and quick acceleration. Bridles are tuned light and for high end, strong winds and bigger jumps. The profile is thin and smoothly transitioned from the LE curve, making it cleaner and less prone to tension wrinkles.

The Strutless VOID 2nd gen, now a do it all Kite! With the exploding new craze of Foiling heavy set in, we put our efforts into a really fresh design specific for technical and Freestyle Foiling, but didn't forget the need for Twin Tip Freeriding and also Wave Kiting categories. The Gen2 2021 design has an even more swept LE, closed ARC shape and finely tuned LE and Bridle positioning to alleviate the inversion and buckling that some heavy riders experienced with Gen1. The steering is precise and direct even at full depower, the loops a small and tight. Bar stroke progressive yet still maintaining a stall-less sheeting power even as the wind is strong. This Kite is amazingly agile and light in feel. The 2021 VOID Range is the same Kite specifics throughout the range, as it works perfectly the same in every size!
