Light as air, the 2020 Solo offers jet-setting freeriders and hydrofoil enthusiasts a kite with ideal performance characteristics based on an industry-proven, easy-to-fly single strut platform. The 2020 Solo was completely redesigned to make the kite more forgiving, lighter, and more nimble in the sky. The Solo continues to offer a smooth and comfortable sheeting range throughout the powerband, granting easy access to power and control. When it comes to marginal conditions, the Solo has an extremely efficient, lightweight shape that makes its light wind performance a force to be reckoned with. Simultaneously, the profile of the 2020 Solo makes dumping the gusts out of the kite effortless. We wanted the Solo to be so easy to use that your focus is having fun on the water and nothing else.
Sizes : 3.5 – 5 – 7 – 9 – 12 – 15.5
[vc_column width="1/2"]To achieve all of the design goals for 2020, a lot had to be done to the DNA of the Solo. We started by flattening the arc through the center of the kite, giving the Solo more inherent low-end power. Next, we cleaned up the profile of the canopy, making the kite more playful and quicker through the sky. To take full advantage of these two changes, we also widened the wingtips. This gives the kite more rigidity and turning response while widening the “sweet spot” of the kite, making it more accepting of increased rear line tension. Finally, we opted to use a compact dynamic bridle featuring two lightweight aluminum sliders. This bridle configuration opened the useable wind range of the Solo and increased bar feedback, giving you complete control over the kite in both high-wind and low-wind conditions. The Solo was, yet again, put on a weight reduction plan, making it the lightest kite in our line. By using a combination of lightweight bladders, minimal dacron application, and a trimmed out build, we were able to shave a significant amount of weight off of an already extremely light kite.[/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="22102" img_size="full" alignment="center"][/vc_column]
