2019/2020 Liquid Force Hifi-X v3 Kiteboarding Kite
What Liquid Force has to say about the Hifi-X:
Sizes: 7 / 8 / 9 / 11 / 13m
The long awaited time has come for the next generation of the HiFi. Since 2015, countless prototypes, endless testing, and novels of feedback have been poured into the development process of the HiFi X3. The challenge to improve what's been touted as one of the best pure C kites in the competitive and purist freestyle world was a daunting task. The achievements gained in the HiFi X3 are destined to be the new benchmark for pure C shape kites. Small modifications led to massive refinements and a higher level of performance delivery.
New for the HiFi X3 is a unique aspect ratio per size, resulting in perfectly tuned kites in each size. These improvements allow the kite to sit in the same position in the wind window, provide the same slack, and deliver the exact same feel across the wind range. Slight changes in the leading edge diameter and a wider wingtip shape increases the rigidity, leading to more stability in unstable wind, better feel when unhooked, and easier relaunch off the rear lines. To round out the improvements, we incorporated material upgrades including the use of Teijin triple ripstop for added abrasion and tear resistance.
- Rigid 5-strut C shape platform offering stability and a direct, connected feel
- 5-line flying system for performance and safety
- Teijin technical coated triple ripstop canopy. Ultra-light, abrasion and tear resistant UV coated material ensuring longevity in kite performance
- Complete rider adjustability with multiple flying line and steering line attachment points
