Best TS Key Features:

Ride Optimised Geometry:
Every size of TS is unique. BEST have used a different blend of materials, construction techniques, bridling and 3D geometry to create a range of high performance kites where each model is ideally suited to delivering maximum performance for advanced riders looking for the perfect freeride/freestyle crossover kite.

Best TS 2014 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 TS V4 2014 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

TS Micro Bridle:
The TS uses a short, direct connecting front bridle. Hidden next to the leading is a single movable tow point that gives you all the advantages of a direct connection to your kite yet still retains the stability, huge wind-range and ease of relaunch that you've come to expect from our SLE kite designs. For unhooked riding, the combination of kite geometry and the new micro bridle provides zero back stall and great unhooked feel.

Best TS 2014 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

EZ-Pump:
The EZ-pump connectors on the TS directly attach the tubes to the valves without an intermediary connector. Reducing the number of parts in the EZ-pump makes it more robust, easier to use and service.

Best TS 2014 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

Twist Lock Valve:
The Twist Lock Valve is the ultimate addition to our EZ-Pump inflation system. Its large one way valve allows 3x the airflow of a standard kite valve; which means less back-pressure from your pump and faster inflation.

 

Once your kite is inflated just push the valve stem home and give the large locking ring a quarter turn to secure it. Because it twists to lock it can’t unlock or be blown open during a crash so you can concentrate on pushing for your next trick with one less thing to worry about. When it’s time to pack up just twist the valve to unlock, depress the deflate tab in the middle of the valve and you are ready to roll up and hit the bar.

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.

Best TS 2014 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 TS 2014 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 TS 2014 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

3D Scuff Guards:
The TS canopy receives 3D injection molded scuff pads to provide maximum protection in self launch situations.

Best TS 2014 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.

Best TS 2014 Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite

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 TS 2014 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 TS 2014 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 TS 2014 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 TS 2014 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.

Description

The BEST TS 2014 is the ultimate high performance crossover kite and it’s perfect for any freerider who squeezes some newschool, wakestyle, freeride and even wave riding into every session.


The Open-C platform of the TS 2014 delivers the rock solid stability of an SLE with the handling of a C-kite. The unique Ride Optimized Geometry ensures that every size TS has the ideal blend of high performance and ease of use so you can tackle all riding styles.

 

Revisions to the wingtips and leading edge profile have improved downwind drift and bar feedback for wave riding, so you can hit the sweet spot in the pocket. Changes to the bridle layout and improved back stall characteristics have allowed the BEST team to extend the wind range in every size of TS.

 

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 BEST have ever made. Refined even further, BEST have been trimmed back to deliver maximum light wind performance and racing advantage. Changes to the centre 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.

 

If you’re looking for the ultimate crossover kite with the option to still do newschool, wakestyle, freeride and wave riding performance then you’ve just found your next kite. Choose the TS and do it all.

 

The BEST TS 3-Stage Categories:
The BEST TS kites have evolved into three distinct groups of kites; the large sizes fulfill the needs of riders who want an agile kite for light wind conditions and course racing.

 

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.

 

What makes the small-medium sizes of the BEST TS 2014 particularly good for unhooking?
For unhooking and newschool the mid aspect, Open C platform provides smooth and constant power delivery. The Open C shape allows the kite to sit deeper in the wind window without back-stalling, allowing you to concentrate on your riding and not the trim of your kite.

 

What makes the small-medium BEST TS 2014 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.


Why is the centre strut now connected to the EZ Pump in 15 and 17m?
BEST have changed the position of the T3 and T4 struts to minimise drag making it possible to increase the diameter of centre strut without increasing the total amount of drag in the kite. Previously, a small strut would not have become sufficiently rigid when inflated via the EZ Pump. The increased diameter now allows BEST to connect the centre strut to the EZ Pump and retain the required airframe integrity for easy relaunch in typical light wind conditions.

 

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.

Depower Control Bar

Best TS 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 V3 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 V3 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 v3 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 TS V3 2014 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 TS V3 2014 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 TS V3 2014 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 TS 2014 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 TS V3 2014 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 TS V4 2014 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.
