Fuel – Freestyle

The Fuel has set the standard for C kite design for the last 13 years. The 2015 Fuel now includes a radically new bridling concept. The Fuel is the first C kite to employ our new Nitrous 4 point pulleyless bridle system. This system allows you to run your Fuel two different ways. First, is in Nitrous mode with the bridle installed. Second, is in direct connect mode with the bridle removed. The first thing dedicated hard core riders will notice about the 2015 Fuel is the bridle comes installed, as engineered by our designer Tony Logosz. According to Tony, “The Fuel in Nitrous mode will deliver explosive pop, massive travel, and for the first time, you get incredible range. Nothing is sacrificed with looping speed or turnability. Basically it makes the Fuel fly like an RPM on Steroids.

RPM – Freeride – Freestyle

The Intuitive Response System (IRS for short), is a new revolutionary pulley-less bridle system that combines a “Direct Drive Bridle” and a “Suspension Displacement Bridle.” The combination of these two advancements act as a shock absorption system and distribute tension properly to where it’s needed; much like a shock would do for a bike or car suspension system. The new IRS Bridle is a bungee system that not only eliminates pulleys, but also eliminates the lag time that results from the pulley having to travel fore and aft along the bridle line. Riders will notice a huge improvement in the kite’s stability with immediate and smooth feedback.  The IRS bridle is not the only improvement on the new RPM, we are also introducing our new “One Pump Speed System.” You will find the system dramatically reduces inflation time so you get on the water faster and with less effort. Other improvements include our bomb-proof construction with a all new diamond leech trailing edge construction and new DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These added features compliment our proprietary tri-tech protection making this the most durable RPM ever.
