Neo SLS 2023
The best wave kite on the market has received the SLS treatment; stronger, lighter, and higher quality, with Penta TX and Trinity TX combined to create a super lightweight and durable wing. With incredible drift, dynamic turns, and huge reach, the Neo SLS is the only kite to take on the water if you ride a surfboard.
THE NEO SLS IS FAMOUS FOR ITS INCREDIBLE DRIFTING CAPABILITIES; THE SLS VERSION IS UP TO 15% LIGHTER THAN THE STANDARD VERSION, ALLOWING THE WING TO FLOAT ALONG THE LINE LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
THE ROTATIONAL SPEED OF THE NEO SLS IS EXTREMELY FAST, AND THE SLS VERSION TAKES THINGS TO THE HIGHER LEVEL. THE NEW HYBRID FLEX STRUT ALLOWS THE WING TO SPIN AND CHANGE DIRECTION QUICKLY, AND THE LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION REDUCES THE WING'S ACCELERATED MASS, MAKING IT FASTER AND MORE RESPONSIVE.
THIS IS ONE OF THE UNIQUE AND INCREDIBLE FEATURES OF THE NEO SLS, ITS ABILITY TO BE DIRECT AND DYNAMIC, EVEN WHEN THE BAR IS OUT, AND THE WING IS DEPOWED. THIS FEATURE ALLOWS YOU TO SURF THE WAVE THE WAY YOU WANT, WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY TOO MUCH ABOUT BAR AND WING CONTROL.
THE AUTONOMY OF THE NEO SLS IS LEGENDARY! IT HAS A HUGE BOTTOM END, WHICH MEANS YOU CAN GO ON A SMALLER WING BEFORE THE OTHER RIDERS; THIS, COMBINED WITH AN IMPRESSIVE DEPOWER, ALLOWS YOU TO RIDE LONGER WHEN THE WIND RISES, AND YOU CAN GET OUT WITH A SMALLER CARVER.
SLS CONSTRUCTION REDUCES THE OVERALL WEIGHT OF THE WING AND IMPROVES PERFORMANCE BY MAKING THE FRAME MORE RIGID. IN ADDITION, MATERIALS LIKE PENTA TX AND TRINITY TX MAKE THE WING LIGHTWEIGHT WHILE PROVIDING EXCELLENT DURABILITY.
LARGER WINGS HAVE BEEN DESIGNED TO USE A WIDER ARC AND HAVE LESS SWEEP IN THE TIPS TO MAXIMIZE POWER, WHILE SMALLER SIZES HAVE MORE SWEEP AND A NARROWER ARC WITH AN EMPHASIS ON MANEUVERABILITY.
DETAILS - DUOTONE NEO SLS
The Neo SLS dazzled the rider community by taking an already revolutionary and market-leading wing and pushing it to new heights. The Penta TX combined with the Trinity TX and the new Hybrid Flex Strut creates an incredibly lightweight and durable construction that weighs up to 15% less than a regular wing, making the Neo SLS so responsive and taking the drift capabilities to higher levels. Where a traditional kite would have fallen, the Neo SLS will continue to drift, allowing you to easily perform your movements on the wave. The new Hybrid Flex Strut guarantees an improvement in the legendary dynamism of the Neo SLS; new material combinations were used for better performance. The wing has been tuned so precisely that the percentage of flexible material in the tip struts decreases as size increases. For example, a 5m is more flexible at the end struts than a 12m; this gives more rigidity and stiffness to large wings for which power is a priority and makes small wings even faster. When the kite is depowered and the bar is pushed back, the kite continues to handle and steer, allowing you to ride the wave without losing control. With multiple adjustments on the tips, you can also adapt the wing to the conditions of the day; During a strapless freestyle session in flat water, set it for maximum pop and powerful loops, if you dare. Rip the waves, tune it for maximum drift and fast spin speed. The Neo SLS is the epitome of a wave kite: fast, with incredible drift, instant relaunch, and very durable. If you want to ride a surfboard this year, the Neo SLS is the kite for you. Whatever your surfing style or the conditions, it will offer you performance beyond all imagination.
HYBRID FLEX STRUT
The new Hybrid Flex Strut gives the wing its exceptional performance and leads to slightly smoother and more refined handling. Turns are faster and more dynamic. These characteristics are controlled by the precisely tuned ratio of Penta TX and STW70 adjusted to each size. The percentage of flexible material in the end buttresses decreases as the size increases.
