Best Kahoona 2013 V5 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Best Kahoona V6 Key Features:

Swept Wingtips:
The swept wingtip design of the Best Kahoona V5 2013 allows for a unique combination of exceptional low end power, high depower and maximum stability. The Kahoona blends favorable traits from both C-kites and SLE kites to provide an exceptional riding experience for kitesurfers of all skill levels.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Quad Strut Design:
The leading edge shape and highly swept back wingtips of the Kahoona allowed the R&D team to remove the centre strut from the airframe: with one less strut in the air the Kahoona is able to turn faster, with less drag, and fly in less wind than would be possible with a five-strut layout.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Double Core Ripstop:
Not all kite canopy materials are created equal and BEST's exclusive Double Core Rip-Stop proves some can be twice as good.

By combining this innovative double-stop weave with BEST'S Air-Aid coating technology BEST have created a unique, lightweight, responsive canopy material of unmatched strength and durability- and it’s
exclusive to Best.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Mini VP2 Bridle:
A short leading edge bridle provides exceptional shape support and effective distribution of canopy loads across the entire kite: the Kahoona V4 has stability that will encourage you to push your limits. VP2's innovative pivoting design provides maximum depower from minimum bar travel making kite control simpler than ever.

New Needle Leading Edge:
As simple as it sounds, using a brand new needle every time you start to build a new leading edge isn’t standard practice in the industry - but it’s the best way to build the strongest kite possible and that’s why we build the Kahoona V4 this way.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

3D Kevlar Airframe:
Kevlar reinforced airframe construction for maximum precision, durability and minimum weight. All leading edge and strut joints on your kite are laser cut, 3D shaped and Kevlar tape-reinforced. Sure it takes a little longer and costs a little more to build kites this way, but there is no better way to connect the leading edge to the struts.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Hidden Bridle Patch:
By placing the Leading Edge attachment points on the inside of the kite rather than on the exposed outside of the leading edge, BEST have been able to reduce the potential for snagging seam edges and fraying the LE Dacron. For snow-kiting and All-terrain riding it is the obvious choice.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Bomb Proof Build:
BEST
laser cut their struts and Kevlar tape the seams as there is no stiffer,
lighter and more durable way to connect the struts to the leading edge. Kevlar Elbows and 3D injection moulded scuff pads on the angled leading edge sections and wing-tips ensure maximum resistance to abrasion.

 

A triple stitched tip-to-toe shaped Load Flex Seam forms the backbone upon which the immense strength and structural stability of all BEST kites are based.

 

Finally, the Dacron trailing edge eliminates stretch, reduces wind flutter and increases turning speed and durability.

Canopy Framing Technology:
Crashing your kite is a fact of life. That's why the perimeter of each canopy segment in every kite BEST make is supported with a unique reinforcement zone: isolating the canopy from impact and crash loads. CFT is a unique approach to the tasks of distributing shock loads across the canopy of your kite and you'll only find it on Best kites.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

A-B Custom Tune:
Allows you to adjust the turning speed and bar-pressure to your personal preference. Dial in more feedback for unhooked steering response and down the line riding ability, or set the back lines for reduced bar pressure and maximum depower.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Load Flex Seam:
The tip-to-tip leading edge seam on all of our kites is triple stitched with a full length tape closure on the outside. Each overlap is backstitched to ensure exceptional durability and integrity. It’s one of the reasons why Best kites have such a good reputation for durability.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

CFT Reinforced Trailing Edge:
All of BEST kites benefit from our exclusive CFT reinforced trailing edge. Adding CFT to the leechline helps provide razor-sharp turning response and unmatched durability. CFT helps reduce the damage incurred by leaving kites flapping in the wind.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Kevlar Elbows:
Reinforced, abrasion-resistant leading edge elbow patches provide greater resistance against handling and launch/land damage. All-terrain use and snow kiting has never looked so attractive.

Surf Tough:
Surf Tough describes how we build in the absolute highest quality with every kite that we make. There are no shortcuts to great performance and lasting durability. We take pride in each and every kite that we make and that's why you will find Surf Tough features on every one of our inflatable kites.

With easy handling, a reputation for surprising hang-time and great low end ability it’s no wonder so many riders return to the Kahoona season after season - it’s the perfect all rounder. For 2014 the Kahoona is now even more fun to ride, low end power has been increased and is even easier to use.


The Delta platform gives the Kahoona auto-relaunch capability perfect for all progressing riders.

The Kahoona is an incredibly easy to use all round performer! Pick this kite if you’re a beginner worried about relaunch or a more seasoned rider looking for an easy, low cost kite that can tackle most conditions and riding styles.

 

Pair your new Kahoona with the 2014 RP-Bar and you’ll have a freeride package that offers unbeatable safety, value for money and accessible performance that you’ll never grow out of. It’s time to grab a new Kahoona and get ready to ride.

 

The Best Kahoona V6 utilizes high wind stability and turning speed, while reducing bar pressure. To do so, the BEST Kahoona V6 is made with new, specially developed high performance materials and improved profiling which have energized its performance.

 

The Kahoona V6 also allows you to perform the latest unhooked new school tricks. The effortless re-launch motivates you to learn new moves and gives supreme confidence to wave riders who simply have to be able to re-launch their kites before the next set comes in, it’s the perfect partner to use with any of our surfboards.

 

The construction of the Kahoona V6 is both bomb-proof and lightweight at the same time. With exceptional handling, performance and practical safety features, the Kahoona V6 is the perfect kite for improving your riding level, regardless of your preferred current style and your current riding level.

 

How has the BEST Kahoona been improved for 2014?:

Revisions to the bridle design this season help to make the Kahoona lighter on the bar and more responsive while a new LE profile helps deliver smoother power delivery especially in gusty conditions.

 

The Kahoona V4 has also undergone several design tweaks to the leading edge sweep and the wingtip shape. By increasing the effectiveness of the steering control surfaces - BEST have improved the overall steering responsiveness of the new Kahoona, giving tighter wingtip turns, without affecting its other handling and performance characteristics.

 

The DNA and core characteristics of previous Kahoona's have been preserved in the new V6; it retains its mid aspect ratio, quad strut, highly swept SLE layout, delivering rock solid stability, great low end, surprising jumping performance and the easiest relaunch in its class.

 

What makes the Kahoona so stable and easy to fly?:

The weight distribution and centre of effort placement in the canopy are in perfect harmony in the Kahoona allowing BEST to eliminate any and all traces of front or backstall.

 

The BEST Kahoona has a reputation for incredibly easy relaunch, what contributes to this?:

The back sweep of the leading edge, the canopy curvature and the attachment point positioning on the wingtip and leading edge all contribute to the Kahoona’s effortless relaunch. The sweep allows the kite to roll automatically on to its wingtip before you flick the kite up into the air to complete the relaunch manoeuvre.

 

What is the Kahoona + V6?:
The Kahoona + V6 is the first Kahoona kite to come with EZ-Pump rapid inflation system so you can get out on the water faster than ever to enjoy even more riding time.

 

Who is the BEST Kahoona for?:

Depower Control Bar

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

BEST Red Line Performance Control Bar and Lines:

The BEST Red Line Performance Bar V4 combines everyone’s favorite features and safety options into one unbeatable bar. Simple enough for anyone to understand, yet with enough versatility to satisfy even the most demanding riders, it’s guaranteed to set the standard yet again this season.

 

The push-to-release QR now comes in a Pro-Cuff version to eliminate accidental releases without increasing the minimum release tension. With only one moving part, the Pro-Cuff QR is easy to reassemble and designed to work consistently with a positive release action with release loads in excess of 250kgs.

The under bar swivel has been improved with added drainage vents and low profile twist-tabs making it smoother to turn no matter how many loops you’ve thrown. Depower line wear is eliminated with the introduction of our new Sacrifice-Insert-System of replaceable low friction Delrin bar centre inserts.

 

The BEST Red Line Performance Control Bar V4 retains the dual centre depower lines, stopper ball , Red Line and suicide safety options of the previous Performance bars. The V3 is the perfect bar for riders of all levels who demand the most reliable and predictable safety system options and ease of use features.

New low profile molded bar ends with integral line winders help make those one-handed loops easier than you expected and a new 3D grip pattern ensures you stay in contact with the bar however you ride.

 

The Double Depower Stopper lets you position your bar wherever you feel comfortable. It takes the strain from your arms so you can stay on the water for longer. The Redline Safety System gives you the option of left or right handed, single front line leashing and overrides the Dual Depower Stopper automatically.

Low stretch, 700lb rated, flying lines, color coded for easy set-up and proven to offer incredible durability complete the RP-Bar v4 package - it’s our most complete bar yet.

 

Best Red Line Performance Key Features:

"Click It" Quick Release:
A one piece, injection moulded quick release with push-to-release outer-cuff ensures reliable and easy safety system activation.
With no mechanical internal parts there's nothing to foul to inhibit safe operation, ensuring reassembly is just as fast and as easy as activation.


Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Clamcleat Depower:
The adjustable clam cleat depower system makes the RP and GP bars even easier to use. You now have complete control, not only over the amount of trim, but also over the distance away from you that the cleat sits and the overall throw of the system.


Cleaner and clearer above the bar than ever before, the adjustable clam cleat also allows you to increase the available depower of your kite on-the-fly, providing a greater wind range without having to land your kite and adjust the rear bridle settings.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Forged Centre :
A drop forged alloy bar centre replaces the swaged center bushings used on previous bars. With an oversized, smooth polished and elliptically flared center hole depower line wear is almost completely eliminated on the Redline Performance Bar. The new design also allows the EVA bar grip to run right up to the center hole, making unhooked kite control just that little bit more secure than before.


Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Dual Depower Stopperball:
3 into 1 Dual Depower stopper ball allows for all flying lines to pass through it giving you all the benefits of our well established stopper ball design bars as well as the safety and bypass functionality of our previous Redline bar design.


Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Red Line Safety Leash:
The Redline safety leash connects you directly to the front lines of your kite, allowing you to completely depower your kite. The Redline safety overrides the depower stopper ball automatically whenever you drop the bar or activate the 'Click-it' Quick Release.


Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Pinless Safety System:
The pin-less safety release is built into the harness end of your kite leash and uses a simple push-to-release action to separate you from your kite. As with the Pro Cuff+ release, there are no metal pins, pivots and no moving parts to get hooked up on as you activate it. The super clean and clinical release sets new standards for ease-of-use and safety and is, again, very simple to reassemble.

Best Kahoona V5 2013 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Under Bar Swivel:
A low friction swivel, shaped with male/female fit for the underside of the bar, helps to keep everything locked in placed when unhooking and makes untwisting your lines easier than ever before. Designed to be easy to clean the new swivel can be flushed out after use and stripped in seconds for a full service should it ever become necessary.
