The Summit V3 is an all out performance Snowkite for
dedicated and experienced Snowkite riders.
The Summit V3 defines top Snowkite performance and has
become the most versatile performance kite on the market. It is
the same kite design as the 2015 model, with refinement to the
Internal Re-Ride Release System.
The Summit V3 is for riders with experience and who are
looking for a kite to explore the limits of what is possible.
The high aspect design, clean sail, de-power range and handling
will allow the adventurous to push the boundaries of the sport
even further. The Summit V3 has so much potential due to its
amazing power generation in light winds but also big de-power
in strong winds. Combine that with fast direct handling and you
have the ultimate combination for progressive riders.
The design of this kite has been maximized to deliver as
much performance as possible for backcountry exploring. Each
aspect has been calculated using the latest development
techniques to produce a kite that pushes the limit of design.
With our new software and our years of experience we have put
together a unique combination of aspect ratio, cell width,
profile and sail tension. We have incorporated technology from
our class leading paraglider designs to dramatically improve
The Summit V3 is available as a Kite Only option that comes
with the lightweight Kompressor Bag, or Kite Complete with the
Contact-Snow Control System and technical mountain Backpack. We
recommend adding the Kompressor Bag to the kite complete option
to have your kite packed and secured as small as possible.
Internal Re-Ride Release
The Internal Re-Ride Release System is the result of intense
research and development with the aim to create the safest
system on the market. The goal was to have a re-ride system
that once activated the kite can easily be re-launched without
having to untangle or clear any lines. The new system stalls
the kite with an internal line – the kite de-powers instantly
without tangling and will sit on the ground ready to re-launch
when you're ready again.
Another big advantage of our Internal Re-Ride Release System
is the land and secure option. We have added the Secure Loop in
the line approx 2m away from the rider. To land the kite with
no pull simply pull the 5th line through the chicken loop until
you reach the Secure Loop. The kite will stall and fall to the
ground without any pull. Use the Secure Loop in the 5th line to
keep the kite on the ground - it can either be hooked onto a
carabineer on your harness or over the bar horn. This makes
landing and packing your kite safe and easy even in high
We thoroughly enjoyed developing and testing the Internal
Re-Ride Release System throughout the last season. It has made
mountain climbing and packing on top so much more enjoyable,
safe, easy and quick for the user.
- The Internal Re-Ride Release System cannot be upgraded to
any older kites as it includes lines that are running inside
- For reverse launch and light wind landing we have kept the
Brake Stall Handle between the back leader lines.
The Summit V3 is also available in an ULTRALIGHT version.
This is the same design but produced with high quality ultra
light material and with out the blow-out valves to reduce
weight and packing volume to a minimum.
It is made with the same lightweight materials as our worlds
lightest Paraglider. To reduce weight and packing volume even
further we have changed the bridle lines to unsheathed spliced
and stitched Edelrid line. This line is not just lighter and
thinner, it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in faster
flying and tighter turns.
The difference in weight also greatly improves the flying
characteristics of the kite. It will launch in lighter winds,
turn quicker and stay in the air longer in gusty conditions.
The ULTRALIGHT version is the kite of choice for those who want
to explore; it might be mountains you have to skin up before
you can kite the ridges or a vast wilderness you are attempting
to cross so you want as little weight as possible for those
days you have to walk.
The ULTRALIGHT comes in one colour only with the
Contact-Snow Control System. As it is about 25% lighter than
our standard kites it is also less resistant to harsh abuse. It
needs an experienced pilot who knows how to keep the kite up in
the air and how to handle it gently on the ground.
The technical backpack is the same design as standard but
using lighter construction and materials saving weight once
The ULTRALIGHT kites will be produced on request only so
please order early to plan for production and delivery time.
