The Flexifoil Hadlow ID comes with increased
depower, easier relaunch and phenomenal performance in freestyle,
freeriding and wave riding making the ID the tool to grow
and be a part of the HADLOW movement from intermediate to
pro riders alike.
The Flexifoil Hadlow ID has a solid feel great
for Freestyle, but also be a kite that you can jump on at
almost any level. Equipped with a bridle supported leading
edge this kite can boost, de-power for wave or free-riding
but still create enough pop for Wakestyle tricks. Even if
you are just learning to jump this kite will suit you, easily
covering intermediate through to Pro.
The HADLOW ID presents a combined package
of performance and accessibility. Slashed wing-tips and an
optimised leading edge give you easier relaunch. You don’t
need to fear putting this kite in the water, allowing you
to push harder and faster.
In the sky, bar pressure gives you knowledge
of where the kite is, with direct un-twitchy control even
when de-powered. If it gets too much, the ID lets you back
off and control the pace.
Freestyle demands consistent and strong pop
and the ID gives you this in bucket-loads with post-pop slack
lining to ease your handle passes. Stability combined with
exceptional speed mean you’ve got the best of both worlds
in your progression right up to Aaron’s own standards.
The ID is versatile across all conditions,
soaking up gusts to give you consistent drive and with substantial
depower from the bar, plus with additional depowered bridle
settings you have a kite that truly earns two places in your
4 Strut Design
Reduces weight, with thinner rib struts further adding to
the speed of the kite.
Full Supporting Bridle
supportive bridle creating better stability and control under
extreme loads (during loops or hard pops). LE bridle and toggle
points allow for zero tube rotation and distortion. The bridle
on the whole gives plenty of depower with a further second
“depower” setting for extreme conditions. Ride
with more grunt and constant pull or more depower and forward
Increases the speed through the window and therefore the manoeuverability
of the kite. A thin diameter adds speed into the turn and
gives a fast, more dynamic grunt but with more diameter than
HADLOW PRO, relaunch is no
Near identical leading and trailing edge curves to the HADLOW
PRO C-kite create a true C-kite feel with HADLOW PRO levels
of performance. Many other kites claim a C-kite feel but no
other kite has such deep-set roots in a strong lineage of
The ID’s unique and purpose built aerofoil tames the
aggressive performance of the HADLOW PRO to an accessible
level with more direct handling.
Creates a truer aerofoil by reducing focal stress on rib to
LE junction, meaning a smoother, more direct flight.
The ID’s unique bridle and aerofoil combine to give
slightly higher bar pressure than the HADLOW PRO that remains
consistent even when depowered, giving you confident knowledge
of where the kite is and what it’s doing.
Balance Driving Canopy
stall after loops allowing for better hook-ups, but creates
a completely neutral stall giving great balance and stability
after a pass without having to drive the sail forward.
Taking geometry from the world’s
most hardcore C-Kite, the Hadlow ID keeps the profiles aligned
for optimal power distribution down through the front toggles
giving a true C-Kite feel.
Slash cut, heavily tapered tips distribute load across the
whole tube, allowing for a thinner tip and creating sharper,
faster turns as well as easing relaunch.
the sail provide an aerodynamically efficient and strong stitch
across the entire kite.
A triple ply trailing edge reduces aerodynamic
flutter offering superb stability and a consistent drive.
Dacron® front and rear attachment points ensures the load
is spread evenly through the kite. Dacron® removed from
the middle of the wingtip keeps the weight of the kite to
a minimum and a slimmed down Dacron® cage keeps the kite
light whilst still retaining strength.
Upgraded flying line
The new AH PRO kites’ explosive performance creates
peak load on the flying lines. To withstand this power, the
lines have been upgraded to 270kg (from 250kg). The line
lengths are exactly the same as Aaron uses. 22m
Standard Flexifoil Features:
EZ Single-Point Inflation
As with all Flexifoil kitesurfing products,
the EZ single-point inflation system increases the speed of
kite setup getting you out on the water in less time.
Wingtip Pump Valve
This gives you a quick and simple pack down by dumping all
air out of the bladders as the kite is rolled up.
Toughened and flexible battens are sewn into the trailing
edge near the wingtips. Reinforced with Dacron, they create
a stiffer trailing edge and a clean release for turbulent
air passing over the wingtip to reduce drag and provide an
increased turn speed.
The connection between the struts and the leading edge tube
has been completely remodelled allowing for millimetre perfect
construction, improved strength and increased rigidity in
the kite frame.
Reinforced stitching increases the stiffness and strength
of the tube. This not only helps soak up a few slams, but
also maintains the shape of the aerofoil for a more power-driven
Dacron® front and rear attachment points ensures the load
spread evenly through the kite. Dacron® cage keeps the
whilst still retaining strength.
