Staggering loops, radical freestyle tricks, and explosive boosts – these are the key features embedded into the DNA of Eleveight's iconic FSeries kite. They tailored this high-performance wing to suit the needs of advanced freestyle and big air riders while ensuring that its professional traits are accessible to pilots of all levels. Therefore they went with an Open-C design that comes with all the advantages of a true C-kite such as direct control, line slack and a wide angle-of-attack for powerful maneuvers. They made sure that the FS shows maximized stability, a radical lift and is easy to handle in all conditions and situations. This kite is the first choice of their freestyle and big air team riders. It takes you as far as you are willing to push.
Eleveight designed the kite with low to medium swept wing tips to provide additional power, which, in combination with the high aspect ratio and ultra-responsive turning, results in those go-big-or-go-home characteristics.Still, the FS is surprisingly comfortable to ride as it easily travels upwind, cushions gusts and also covers a huge wind range.
Only prime grade materials such as the X4 Ripstop canopy made by Techno Force and Teijin's latest XT leading- and trailing edge material are used to construct the FS, which translates to unmatched durability and performance. Eleveight implemented subtle yet powerful changes that improve the kite's performance even more. For the FSeries' third generation they introduced an increased angle-of-attack as well as aspect ratio, thinner struts and an innovative five-point bridle setup that increases stability and reduces kite twist.
The FS is an all-star power machine that tears down your limits.

Kite Structure: E/8 Trusted Quality
Eleveight kites are built with innovative and quality workmanship. Details are strategically designed for long lasting durability, while keeping the kite light and agile.
1 / Teijin Techno Force - X4 Ripstop canopy
The superior X4 Ripstop canopy is strong and tear resistant. It is made by Teijin Techno Force in Japan and guarantees lasting performance.
2 / Double bonded canopy
To ensure your kite can take a beating, every seam is glued and stitched for maximum durability.
3 / Quick Flow
The large diameter of the valve and strut connectors ensures easy and fast inflation and deflation of your kite.
4 / Strut Force Distribution
Double strut head reinforcement for a solid and robust kite frame.
5 / Short Bridle
The short bridle setup with only one wingtip pulley enhances the kite's agility and the direct bar feeling while reducing the risk of catching the wingtip.
6 / 3D Bridle Deflector
Redesigned 3D bridle deflector with structural reinforcement covering the closing seam, decreasing the possibility of bridle wraps.
7 / Canopy Guards
Strategic Dacron canopy reinforcements to eliminate canopy wear and tear including pin holes caused by the valves.
8 / German made PU Bladder Material
The lightest and most durable bladder material on the market. Quality made in Germany.
9 / Safe Connect
Avoid mixing up lines with the kook proof front- and backline connection points.
10 / Easy Trim
Trim the kite's flying behavior to suit your needs. Simply switch between backline trim options with the pull-to-pull tags.
11 / Load dynamic super seam
A triple reinforced closing seam along the leading edge makes it practically indestructible. The center segments have a stronger reinforcement as the material load is much higher, compared to the wingtips with their smaller diameter.
12 / Load Diffuser
Angled reinforcements along the trailing edge diffuse the load and strain on the canopy, making it more durable, improving kite stability and increasing the longevity.
13 / Turning Trim Setting
Trim the kite according to your riding style and wind conditions by switching between different bridle line turning settings.
The FS is a true performance powerhouse made to go big. It combines leading materials, experienced craftsmanship, and cutting edge design.
