  • Medium turning speed
  • Constant and smooth pulling turn
  • Wingtip to pivot turner

Steering the PS is the most natural thing as the turning characteristics are that precise. The medium turning speed smoothly generates power that is followed by a consistent pull. The tight turning radius enhances these characteristics.

  • Medium to low AR
  • High flight stability
  • Constant power

A medium to low aspect ratio allows you to sheet-in for grunty power that instantly gets you going. You want to ease the power, push the bar away. Furthermore, the PS is exceptionally stable and forgiving.

  • High sweep
  • Automatic relaunch
  • Predictable handling

The PS’ wingtips have a high sweep to provide an exceptional overall handling experience of the kite. Especially after a crash, the design initiates a hassle-free automatic relaunch.

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 TechnoForce™ - X4 Ripstop canopy

The superior X4 Ripstop canopy is strong and tear resistant. It is made by Teijin Techno Force™ in Japan and guarantees lasting performance.

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

Angled reinforcements along the trailing edge diffuse the load and strain on the canopy, making it more durable while improving kite stability and longevity.

13. Leading Edge Guards

Additional leading edge TPU reinforcements for further wear and tear protection
