Like a well-trained puppy, the NV (Envy) keeps coming back. It always has your back through ease of use, stability, and general responsiveness. Best part? You don’t even have to teach it tricks. Notable changes for the most recent rendition of this classic kite are an entirely new profile, revamped airframe geometries, and the new moniker. With a few changes in shape and line placement, the NV now enjoys even greater responsiveness, less backstall in light conditions, and quicker motion through the wind window. An updated bridle layout removes canopy distortion and gives the kite a more stable set of connection points. If you need an easy-to-use, stable freeride kite for most any situation, the NV is for you.

What Liquid Force has to say about the 2017/18 NV V8 (Envy)
Departures from the norm and outside of the box thinking are what bring strides in next generation product development. The challenge with this philosophy of thinking and development is to retain all the special characteristics that 7 years of Envy development has achieved. We have reached a point where the Envy is one of the most user friendly, versatile, kites on the market.
The 8th version of the Envy is now here. Not only does the NV have a new name moniker, but also utilizes a complete new profile and airframe geometries.
The most noticeable change is in the wingtip geometry. This drastic change has produced prolific improvements in kite input back to the rider, allowing the rider to focus on what is in front of them and not what is going on above them in the kite. Another benefit of this shape is reduction of wingtip flaring, allowing the kite to move faster through the wind window and reduce light wind back stalling. The leading edge diameter has become more tuned in shape by reducing the diameter in key areas. Reduction in LE shape adds in speed across the wind window and makes for a fluid turning radius.
Support of the LE and canopy airframe has been improved over the past generations. The NV V8 utilizes a new bridle schematic that includes a V load transfer connection. This connection eliminates canopy distortion and creates a more stable bridge of bridle connection points supporting the LE.
The NV still retains its legendary stability, its easy to predict on/off feel and bombproof construction, while holding the position as one of the most versatile cross condition and riding style kites on the market. From pro freestyler, to wave seeker, or the weekend warrior, the NV will perform beyond expectations.
2017 Liquid Force Control Bar Options
New for the 2017 lineup, the memo of the Mission is functionality, pure and simple. LF took the liberty of reexamining each aspect of the control bar in order to obtain the highest standards not only in quality, but safety and performance as well. Having undergone extensive testing in both the lab and the field, Liquid Force is proud to announce this new bar. With a minimalistic shape for enhanced functionality, the bar uses a molded technology to reduce weight and add strength. As a bonus feature, it can be converted to the 5th line system with an adjustment kit.
