What Liquid Force has to say about the v3 Solo
Refined and evolved encompass the versatility of the Solo V3. A new leading edge to trailing edge canopy profile highlights the fine tuned changes in the Solo V3 that brings maturity to the kite. This profile design improvement reduces flutter in the critical areas of the wingtip, increases stability in gusty wind conditions and creates an instant, engaged, power delivery upon sheeting in and smooth controlled de-power when sheeting out.
The single strut platform, mid range aspect ratio, and progressive leading edge arc moves the flying position slightly forward in the wind window offering superior low end power making the kite a natural choice for lighter wind specialists and dynamic freeriding hydrofoil riders. The light weight advantage of the single strut platform allows the Solo V3 to handle messy and difficult wind conditions with ease – offering exceptional drift in the lulls and extreme controllable depower in heavy gusts.
A fresh approach to bridle configuration has created rapid turn initiation and aided in providing more wingtip pressure to lighting fast off the water re-launching. The ultimate control of the Solo V3 culminates into a kite that traverses all freeriding disciplines and wind chasing travelers.
iding in light wind presents enough challenges as is. We believe that equipment should not add another dynamic of difficulty to this condition equation. The Solo lead the charge in light wind performance with its introduction 3 years ago.
The Solo’s minimal build, single strut platform is unmatched for keeping the kite aloft in light and lulled wind. Don’t hold your progression and tricks back with the fear of crashing! The same benefits of decreased weight for keeping the Solo V3 in the sky translates to ease of re-launch in the slightest of breeze. Additional weight savings components include reduction of heavy Dacron material and low profile bridle lines that reduce drag and weight creating a more forward flying position allow ease of upwind angles.
If you are the type of rider that would rather be on the water than sitting on the beach, the Solo V3 is your answer to more days riding your kiteboard rather than riding your beach chair.

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.
I love the Solo kites as great all-around kites (I have 2 of them now). They are very user friendly, have a good wind range (not as good as a 3 or 5 strut kite but pretty close), provide plenty of lift for jumping, have great power (and I'm mean great) for their size, and best of all, they seem to stay in the air in the lightest of wind. I was really skeptical about the single strut kites, but now I'm addicted. The kites are also great for foiling- I use them for both my twin tip and foil board. I wish I knew how great these kites were since my whole quiver would be just Solos. And of course, MacKite rocks with their advice and recommendations! :-)
