E/8 Trusted Quality

Eleveight kites are built with innovative and quality workmanship. Details are strategically designed for long lasting durability, while keeping the kite light and agile.

1 . Teijin Techno Force™ - X4 Ripstop canopy / XT Fabric

The superior X4 Ripstop canopy is strong and tear resistant. The XT Extreme High Tenacity Cloth is a high performance inflatable structure material. Both materials are made by Teijin Techno Force™ in Japan and guarantee lasting performance and enhanced durability.

2. Double Bond Canopy

To ensure your kite can take a beating, every seam is glued and stitched for maximum durability.

3. Quick Flow

The large diameter of the valve and strut connectors ensures easy and fast inflation and deflation of your kite.

4. Strut Force Distribution

Double strut head reinforcement for a solid and robust kite frame.

5. Short Bridle

The short bridle setup with only one wingtip pulley enhances the kite’s agility and the direct bar feeling while reducing the risk of catching the wingtip.

6. 3D Bridle Deflector

Redesigned 3D bridle deflector with structural reinforcement covering the closing seam, decreasing the possibility of bridle wraps.

7. Canopy Guards

Strategically placed Extreme Tenacity canopy reinforcements to eliminate canopy wear and tear including pinholes caused by the valves.

8. German made PU Bladder Material

The lightest and most durable bladder material on the market. Quality made in Germany.

9. Safe Connect

Our kook proof front- and backline connection points eliminate any mistake when rigging the kite.

10. Easy Trim

Trim the kite’s flying behavior to suit your needs. Simply switch between backline trim options with the pull-to-pull tags.

11. Load dynamic super seam

A triple reinforced closing seam along the leading edge makes it practically indestructible. The center segments have a stronger reinforcement as the material load is much higher, compared to the wingtips with their smaller diameter.

12. Ultra-Light Load Diffuser

The trailing edge diffuses the load and strain on the canopy while reducing flutter, highly increasing stability as well as longevity.

13. Turning Trim Setting

Trim the kite according to your riding style and wind conditions by switching between different bridle line turning settings. 

14. 2 Step Force Transition

Optimize load transition between the inflatable frame structure and the ripstop material for improved stability and durability.
