Meet our brand new OSeries kite! A dedicated foil and freeride kite, streamlined to deliver outstanding performance even in a gentle breeze. The OS's feather-light design redefines durable and sturdy built quality. It is extremely robust while being ultra responsive. The Open-C shape is so much fun to ride, the second you launch you will feel a new sensation of agility, speed, and direct control. Even though it is remarkably dynamic, the OS is easy to tame. It has a smooth power deployment and its steering is very precise.
We shaped the kite with a medium aspect ratio and medium swept wing tips. This excessively improves the low-end wind performance, allowing even heavy-set riders to take off in well below 10 knots. This kite is a game changer for those who need to make every day on the water count.
As riding in light wind can be tricky, we paid special attention to the wing's relaunch capabilities. The OS comes out of the water with ease in hardly any wind. We were also able to eliminate backstall and made the kite exceptionally stable. The canopy is made with the renowned X4 Techno Force™ ripstop cloth and the latest XT high-end leading edge and strut material by Japanese manufacturer Teijin. This combination diminishes flutter and is wear and tear resistant. We spent more than two years on the development of the OS and are extremely proud of the result.

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 OS is a light and reactive kite, supporting you to hit the water in a gentle breeze foiling, freeriding or taking you in the surf.
