BEST TS V2 (2013) Water Relaunchable C-Shape / SLE Kite >>
Every size of the BEST TS (V2) 2013 kite is uniquely engineered for a specific set of riding conditions - allowing the TS range to cover all riders and riding styles. Every aspect of design, shaping, material selection and construction in the TS has been refined to bring each size even closer to perfection.
Any rider looking for a high wind kite that is stable and predictable needs look no further than the 5m and 6m TS kites. Unhooked wave riders will find that the medium size TS 2013 kites offer the perfect blend of tight and fast steering responsiveness, light bar pressure and unhooked control, allowing them to express their style like never before.
New-school riders searching for blistering performance will be blown away by the improvements in handling, power delivery and jumping from the mid sized TS kites. Hooked or unhooked the 7m -12m TS kites deliver greater stability, precise feedback and more performance than ever before.
For course racing and light wind conditions, the 15m and 17m TS kites are the most aerodynamically refined kites we've ever made. Refined even further they have been trimmed back to deliver maximum light wind performance and racing advantage. Changes to the center strut design and bridle positioning make them even easier to relaunch in the lightest conditions.
With sizes ranging from 5m to 17m there is a BEST TS for every rider and every riding style.
The BEST TS 3-Stage
The small-medium sizes which are perfect for riders who want kites for newschool and wave riding. The small kites stand out on their own as a result of their 3-strut design. The 5m and 6m are slowed down a little to make them suitable for very high wind conditions.
The 7-12m sizes are all 5-strut designs. Reducing the number of struts and refining the bridle layout and canopy shaping to accommodate this change gives all of these sizes greater stability right across the entire canopy and enhanced unhooked feel.
The 15-17m sizes have gained significant low end power and stability in light winds as a result of going to a 5-strut layout.
makes the small-medium sizes of the BEST TS 2013 particularly
good for unhooking?
What makes the small-medium BEST TS 2013 kites perfect for wave riding?
The mid aspect ratio design of the TS makes it a reactive and responsive kite that steers from the wingtips with a light feel at the bar. The SLE bridled leading edge gives a broad wind range and smooth power delivery as the kite traverses the wind window; this combination of broad wind range, steering responsiveness and predictable power delivery allows you to time your moves on the wave to perfection.
Have any advancements been made in the Air-Aid materials?
All BEST's unique fabrics are under constant development. They represent one of the most practical ways to continue delivering performance and ease of use improvements year after year. Both canopy Ripstop and airframe Dacron materials deliver greater resistance to bias loads this season, giving tighter more reactive handling in all TS sizes. The infusion process for canopy Ripstop has been further refined giving you a crisper fabric with better hand that continues looking good for longer.
