Kitesurfing Kite Taina V9 2020 With Elite V4 Bar

WAVERIDING

The Taina reacts very well to bar input, can be steered one-handed, and has a very precise feel allowing riders to position the kite anywhere in an instant. The kite’s excellent depower gives riders the option to surf with or without kite power. There is no need to look at the kite to know where it is allowing riders to completely focus on the wave.

FREERIDE/OLDSCHOOL

This all-round beast turns sharp, jumps high, has incredible grunt, and catches well during mega-loops. Due to its great depower, sending the kite in overpowered conditions without losing your edge is easily achieved. Its power delivery is exponential giving the kite a superb vertical lift.

RACING/SPEED

The Taina has incredible upwind performance and the ability to fly on all points of sail. With small wingtips, a big projected area, and only 3 struts, we have achieved the highest power to drag ratio making the Taina a top competitor for racing on water and snow.

BEGINNERS/KITESCHOOLS

The Tania’s performance also excels in its user-friendly characteristics. Its profile is shaped in a way that makes the kite virtually impossible to stall and re-launches effortlessly. Due to the Taina’s total depower ability; this kite is very safe and easy to use.
With over 200 windy days a year, our test center in Cabarete demands a kite that can last in surf wipeouts, heavy shore break, strong winds, school use and very frequent sessions. To satisfy this demand, we’ve gathered the best canopy material, one pump system/valves, and bridle lines currently available in the trade.
The 9th generation TAINA 2020 comes in 4 color options, kite bag, and repair kit.

LIGHT WIND (T14 & T17 ONLY)

Because the practice of our sport in light wind does not requires the same kites characteristics than the other wind range, the Taina 14 and 17 were developed in the idea to extend the low range compares to the rest of the collection for that. We first change the complete shape of the kite by adding another strut to keep the kite rigid and bring more stability. We opted for a non-pulley connection for a more direct feeling and more reactivity.
In the first years of the TAINA, with our idea to develop the kite as light as possible we removed the one pump system and the reinforcement that were useless for light wind. As not only light wind riders but also the heaviest of us using the 14 as a freestyle kites, we decided this year to add the necessary Dacron reinforcement for this type of use. The proven effectiveness in light wind added to the demand of a one pump system by most of our customers, the 2020 Taina 14 and 17 models received our single inflation system.

VOLUTIONS OF THE ELITE CONTROL BAR EV4 :

By only designing what is absolutely necessary on a control bar and using the simplest safety system in the industry, our pros don’t have to modify their bars, and beginners can focus more on the ride without compromising their safety. The ELITE control bar is highly functional and suits all riding styles.
Simplicity improves performance but also durability; more parts usually means more potential failures. The ELITE bar is composed of very few simple parts made of the most durable materials in the trade to create a long lasting, heavy duty control bar. It complies with AFNOR standards, and can be used on most 4 line kites.
The 5th generation bar has everything a rider needs… nothing more.
=> Comes with 24 meter lines and safety leash
