Decide how you ride
Sizes: 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 14m
After a first incredible season, the SuperModel returns with new improvements to become even more versatile and stay true to its original mission: A kite that lets you decide how you want to ride. At Reedin they believe that if a kite is good, it's good for all types of riding and levels. The SuperModel is designed with the goal to have it react and fly to perfection. The main focus is the way it performs, feels, turns, forgives, and is predictable, no matter if you are riding a TT, a Waveboard, or a foil. The end goal is to take your riding to the next level and making your sessions more fun.

'The SuperModel is really a kite that reflects the real essence of kiting in my eyes: have as much fun as possible when we go out kiting no matter the conditions, being, gusty or steady, flat or choppy, waves or kickers, light or strong'
One key characteristic of the SuperModel is how it swings out of the turns. This specifically will allow you to keep more flying speed in your kite to create more power while staying very light so you can ride a smaller kite, you can have more constant pull during your turns while riding waves, you will finish your kite loop with confidence, you will land your jumps smoother, and you will be able to steer your kite in marginal wind when riding underpowered on a foil.
Our unique design provides incredible stability to make the kite super forgiving while delivering the most glide in jumps. Our Wingtip shape supplies instant response for quick turning to give great punch when sending a jump to easily get high quickly, because in the end, we all like to jump as high and long as possible.
Arc Stiffener + WingTip Tensioner Leading Edge Seam: The Leading seam has been moved in order to add stiffness to the kite's arc in the center while also adding vertical tension in the strut. This new design allowed Reedin to reduce the Leading Edge diameter even further for a kite that flies now, faster, reacts quicker to bar input and points further upwind.
Smaller Struts: For lighter weight and better flex for faster response to bar input and improved low end.
Improved Bridle Balancing: A few sizes had their bridles reworked in order to make the whole range even more consistent from one size to another.
LE Construction: With new internal reinforcements at struts and bridles for an even more durable kite.
Super Stiff Bridles: Bridles are using pure dyneema lines weaved at low angle de and prestretched to the highest standard for virtually no stretch over time: this translates into a kite that reacts quicker to bar input and that will keep its characteristics over time.
CNC Sewing: Manufacturing quality has been a huge part of the process to develop the Reedin kites, in order to ensure the best quality possible, a lot of pieces on the kite are stitched using CNC sewing machine.
Segmented Wingtip: The wing tip area is a key element of how a kite turns and engages the turns. Added segments in this area allow for the perfect shape definition of the wingtip. The super segmented wing tip provides the smoothest turning engagement of any kite for maximum efficiency of your steering power, giving you extremely precise, fast, yet intuitive turning.
High Density Triple Rip Stop Canopy Made by Teijin: The high density of Yarn per square meter makes this canopy one of the stiffest and strongest on the market for the most reactive and best performing kite.

Great kite. Love how they thought of all the details, including the extra pocket for the bar in the bag Otherwise I'm an intermediate kiteboarder (can do small jumps etc) so I don't see much difference between kites but this one feels lighter
