The Flexifoil Shiva is a result of months of work by Flexifoil’s design team, and believe it is the most advanced hybrid design on the market this season. It’s perfect for freeride and wave riding.
The kite offers unparalleled ease of use, effortless relaunch, incredible turning speed and windrange, as well as legendary Flexifoil build quality.
The Flexifoil Shiva has a light bar pressure, which takes the work out of riding, but still gives you amazing feedback through the bar. It’s super stable qualities and user friendliness let you concentrate on your riding and push your limits on the water.
The Shiva kite has good lift which freeriders and freestylers will love, but maintains all of the characteristics necessary to make it great for wave
Flexifoil have worked hard to make the Shiva turn very quickly for their size, which is essential to good waveriding performance, and given the Shiva and amazing amount of depower which keeps you in control as you are flying down the wave.
The profile of the hybrid design allows the kite to drift downwind when you turn towards it, and delivers smooth, predictable power during smooth loops down the line.
In the sky, bar pressure gives you knowledge of where the kite is, with direct un-twitchy control even when de-powered. If it gets too much, the ID lets you back off and control the pace.
The Flexifoil Shiva is versatile across all conditions, soaking up gusts to give you consistent drive and with substantial depower from the bar, plus with additional depowered bridle settings you have a kite that truly earns two places in your quiver.
3 Strut Design
Reduces weight, with thinner rib struts further adding to the speed of the kite.
Full Supporting Bridle
Fully supportive bridle creating better stability and control under extreme loads (during loops or hard pops). LE bridle and toggle points allow for zero tube rotation and distortion. This bridle system runs on brand new pulleys.
New bespoke “Nose Up” aerofoil design offering the rider complete stability in sketchy wind conditions.
Filleted Dacron Cage
Creates a truer aerofoil by reducing focal stress on rib to LE junction, meaning a smoother, more direct flight.
Balance Driving Canopy
Reduces stall after loops allowing for better hook-ups, but creates a completely neutral stall giving great balance and stability after a pass without having to drive the sail forward. This canopy creates fast forward speeds and a fast turn responses. It has a neutral stall and offers, great down the line drift.
Throughout the sail provide an aerodynamically efficient and strong stitch across the entire kite.
A triple ply trailing edge reduces aerodynamic flutter offering superb stability and a consistent drive.
Dacron® front and rear attachment points ensures the load is spread evenly through the kite. Dacron® removed from the middle of the wingtip keeps the weight of the kite to a minimum and a slimmed down Dacron® cage keeps the kite light whilst still retaining strength.
Upgraded flying line
The new Shiva kites’ explosive performance creates a high peak load on the flying lines. To withstand this power, the flying lines have been upgraded to 270kg (from 250kg). The line lengths are exactly the same as Aaron uses. 22m
Standard Flexifoil Features:
EZ Single-Point Inflation
As with all Flexifoil kitesurfing products, the EZ single-point inflation system increases the speed of kite setup getting you out on the water in less time.
Wingtip Pump Valve
This gives you a quick and simple pack down by dumping all air out of the bladders as the kite is rolled up.
Toughened and flexible battens are sewn into the trailing edge near the wingtips. Reinforced with Dacron, they create a stiffer trailing edge and a clean release for turbulent air passing over the wingtip to reduce drag and provide an increased turn speed.
The connection between the struts and the leading edge tube has been completely remodelled allowing for millimetre perfect construction, improved strength and increased rigidity in the kite frame.
Reinforced Leading Edge Tube
Reinforced stitching increases the stiffness and strength of the tube. This not only helps soak up a few slams, but also maintains the shape of the aerofoil for a more power-driven experience.
Dacron® front and rear attachment points ensures the load is
spread evenly through the kite. Dacron® cage keeps the kite light whilst still retaining strength.
