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.
