Description

The Flexifoil Blade 5 (V) has combined the very best elements of all the Blade series over the years and has produced a kite with even greater lift and better stability than ever before.

 

With the Flexifoil Blade 5 (V) flyers will jump higher than ever, and experience the raw power that only this kite can generate, giving pure exhilaration every time they fly the kite.

 

The all new design pushes more raw power and lift, into a legendary powerful canopy, giving all air junkies the ultimate weapon.

 

The Flexifoil Blade 5's (V's) high aspect ratio, swept plan form creates a fast crisp turn rate, which combined with a monstrously powerful aerofoil creates insane lift and float, yet it retains the stability loved by all Blade flyers.

 

The kite's thin profile is fast and efficient. This efficiency is aided by a high cell coupled with internal V ribs to support the profile. The V ribs also reduce the amount of bridle, which minimised the drag in the kite, whilst keeping the wing shape smooth and aerodynamically efficient.

 

Flyers of previous Flexifoil Blades will notice that the Flexifoil Blade 5 (V) kite turns faster and holds the power better through the turn. They will feel that the kite is very reactive to control inputs and has a more powerful feel giving longer higher floating jumps.


Designed with a lightweight and new tuneable bridle, the kite can be adjusted to suit the rider's style and maximise the wind conditions.

 

The Flexifoil Blade 5 (V) is designed to push the Blade series to a new level. The Flexifoil Blade 5 (V) significantly raises the performance and usability of fixed 4-line big lift kites.

 

Flexifoil Blade VIP 8.5m
For the very finest traction kiters, for the most important people in the scene today, Flexifoil presents the latest addition to the Blade V 8.5m. Offering you a kite you can be proud of, at a proven level of performance, Flexifoil give you the VIP. Based on the proven Blade IV, the 8.5m2 revision of this canopy takes an established and phenomenally performing power kite, adding in some tweaks and refinements that we've learnt from the intensive development of the Blade V and re-mastered this into the VIP package.

 

The Blade VIP offers you the power and performance you need to push traction kite sports to the top of your game, you won't find a more aggressive foil on the market with a stronger pull or boost. The Blade VIP is alive with power and flying precision to help you excel and reach a new level of adrenaline powered kiting.

 

Bringing back the 8.5m canopy to the Blade V range, Flexifoil wanted to do something special so they have created the unique limited edition look to the VIP to celebrate the greatness of those riders using it.

 

You’ll find the same features on the Blade VIP that exist on all current production Blade V kites.

  • Improved Stability
  • Increased float and hangtime
  • More power generated through the turn

Reviews


Jump! Jump! Jump! - Ed Slater

I have never ever gone so high! What can I say! Quality is excellent which is what you need when you are 20ft in the air with your landboard. Speed is improved and the float is unreal!

I use both the handles and control bar on mine and both work effectively for most conditions and suit my riding style.

Colour coded linesets aid in the quick setup of the kite and the quality is second to none! Even the bag is cool!

 

High Octane Kite! - Paul Oliver

Just brought this and it has blown me away, literally. It is such a fantastic kite and I fully recommend it to anyone who wants to buy a high octane kite. I have had hours of fun and I have introduced some of my friends to it now and I think that they intend to buy one!

 

A Superb Buy! - Michael Grimmitt

I bought this kite for fun with my mate who goes kiting quite a lot and wow i was not disappointed with this kite! The power you can get from this kite in even low winds of 7-8mph is good and when you push it in the higher winds of 10-13mph you really will fly quite easily.

I find that the bar has a superb amount of control over the kite, but currently prefer the handles as you can control the power of this best easier! This really is a superb buy and would recommend to anyone!

 

Extremely Versatile! - Mike Harris

I purchased a Blade 4.9 along with a scrub board last year. Not only is the kite absolutely fantastic, the service from Powerkiteshop is second to none.

 

The kite is extremely versatile and can be used for pretty much every kiting activity there is and is easily adjustable to suit the conditions and the type of flying required. Although I wouldn't class this as a beginners kite, I have taught a few beginners under supervision on the kite and all have found it very nice to use.

 

As said above, the service from Powerkiteshop is excellent and they really went out of there way to help me choose the correct setup for my needs.

 

They didn't try to make me buy the most expensive bit of kit and were very honest in their approach.

 

In summary, if you want a great all rounder with LOTS of power, you will not go wrong with the Blade and if you want great service from real flyers, choose Powerkiteshop. I'll be back soon for my first kitesurfing gear!
