KITESURFING KITE DNA
3-STRUT OPEN-C SHAPE
The new 3-strut Open-C frame of the Escape replaced the iconic 4-strut design. The big benefits of the 3-strut frame are the stiffness in the high end and the gust, needed when you boost big in stronger winds. Plus, the typical Escape characteristics are only amplified. The 3-strut frame makes the kite lighter, improving wind range and steering behaviour.
SHORT PULLEY-LESS BRIDLE
The Escape kitesurfing kite has the characteristic fork bridle system without pulleys for a super direct kite feel. Every reaction is directly translated to your kite, making it super direct.
Every PLKB kitesurfing kite was reinforced with bulletproof Kevlar bumpers. These bumpers are filled with lightweight foam to create an absorption layer for crashes or when the kite accidentally got dragged over land. This way your kite lasts longer. This will increase the durability of your kite so you can play longer.
DURABLE TEIJN TRIPLE RIPSTOP
We believe that durability is an important aspect and your kite should last. The custom-made Triple Ripstop from Teijin is the best on the market.
ADJUSTABLE BAR PRESSURE
All PLKB kitesurfing kites come with adjustable backline settings to adjust the bar feel of the kite. Moving the bridle attachment point back towards the trailing edge will make the steering pressure lighter but will require more movement of the bar. Changing the settings is super easy, just detach the back bridle line and reattach it to your preferred setting to have more or less bar pressure and steering movement.
DOUBLE KOOKPROOF PIGTAILS
Forgot what knot your lines were attached to? By adding an extra pigtail to the backlines of the kite, you don't have to think about the right setting for your kite because it's always your favourite.
FIT ALL VALVE
Our kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze. You won’t have to spend hours and hours looking for a pump with the right connection and will be out on the water in no time.
DOUBLE STITCHED LEADING EDGE
Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The entire span of the leading edge has been reinforced along the seam with double stitches to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding by waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market.
Because the canopy is being cut using computer-controlled lasers, the profile of the PLKB kitesurfing kite has become super smooth, limiting all wrinkles from forming in the canopy. This makes the kite more efficient and improves the Escape's flight characteristics. The V9s flight behaviour has also become more stable, direct and responsive than before.
