3 Strut- Ultra Light Structure
The Liquid Force Envy is built on a lightweight 3-strut platform reducing overall weight. The Envy's Ultra light structure is 20% lighter than an average SLE kite providing a fun, light feel. No stalling, better drifting and superior stability while also quicker to inflate and deflate.
Diamond Wingtip Design
The proven Diamond Wingtip defines the depower and response of Liquid Force kites. The Diamond Wingtip provides the huge de-power of curved wingtips with the immediate response and tuning input of wide square wingtips. The Liquid Force Diamond Wingtips also provides smooth, constant pull and power through turns while still de-powering the kite.
The Diamond wingtip not only provides huge de-power and easier prelaunch over traditional curved wingtips, but provides a rigid structure as well as instant and predictable kite response. The Liquid Force Diamond Wingtip also provides smooth, constant pull and power through turns while still effectively de-powering the kite when needed. Bomb Proof Construction, Glue and Stiched Panel Assembly.
EXO Strut Technology - Ultimate Structural Bonding:
Designed and developed by Julien Fillion. The Exo Strut brings strut construction to a new level of rigidity and strength focusing on the areas of the struts that absorb the force of impact on hard crashes and washings in the surf.
USB 3.1 Bridle
The Liquid Force USB 3.1 Bridle is a proven Liquid Force cascade SLE bridle system with one static wingtip pulley. The USB 3.1 provides simple and smooth depower, effortless and instant relaunch together with unmatched reliability which means less swimming and more riding!
Superior Quality Canopy Material TEIJIN Ripstop T9600
When most of the kiteboarding brands out there stopped using this very high end material due to cost increases, Liquid Force stood their ground! They strongly believe that the use of Teijn Ripstop T9600 is essential to high quality kite design. Your kite will repeatedly perform like the day it was pulled out of the plastic and hold a much higher resale value.
Nuke Proof Construction
Liquid Force nuke proof construction consists of super reinforced seam construction with each segment glued and double stitched. The entire panel layout of Liquid Force kites is glued and stitched using an overlapped seam assembly.
This construction has proven throughout the years to be the strongest on the market. Liquid Force have also discovered the perfect Dacron reinforcement to weight ratio to ensure the highest quality for your investment. Their signature molded EVA leading edge bumpers are light, strong and will protect your LE during self-launch, hard crashes, snow re-launch, and normal everyday wear and tear.
When crashing at full power, no other part of the kite absorbs as much impact as the leading edge, specifically the centre of the leading edge. Leading edge segments are beefed up by doubling the amount of Dacron used in production, but only where it’s truly needed. This will not increase the weight of the LE but will give your kite the ability to hit the water hard all day, worry free.
Max Flow Inflation One-Pump System
The future is now, and this future is inflated quicker and easier by the LF Max Flow Valve. Imagine a kite that inflates in 40% less time, getting you to the water faster and leaving your friends still pumping on the beach.The LF Max Flow valve can bring it, and only the full range of LF kites has it! This new one way high airflow valve mixed with our completely redesigned, gauge-equipped pump will change your life. Once you go Max Flow, you never go back!
