Build and Construction:
Flexifoil kites are known worldwide for their exceptional build quality and attention to detail. Their materials are sourced from around the globe and manufactured within incredibly high tolerance limits. Flexifoil have worked hard to further improve quality control procedures meaning that we are confident that every stitch, print and panel is perfectly to specification on every kite they build.

 

Flexifoil are a company who strive to meet the demands of all levels of kitesurfer. The same kite technologies created through working with the world’s best riders, such as PKRA World Champion kitesurfer Aaron Hadlow, have improved their kites at every level of their product range.

3-strut Design:
A three strut design reduces weight, with thinner rib struts further adding to the speed of the kite.

Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable

Bridle:
Fully 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 speed.

Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable

Blended Aerofoil:
New bespoke “Nose Up” aerofoil design offering the rider complete stability in sketchy wind conditions.

Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable

Filleted Dacron Cage:
Creates a truer aerofoil by reducing focal stress on rib to LE junction, meaning a smoother, more direct flight.

Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Balanced Driving Canopy:
Reduces 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.
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Lap Seams:
Throughout the sail provide an aerodynamically efficient and strong stitch across the entire kite.
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable

Trailing Edge :
A triple ply trailing edge reduces aerodynamic flutter offering superb stability and a consistent drive.

Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable

Wingtips:
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.

Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Molten Bladder Technology:
The new welding process has been tested up to a sweltering 100 degrees centigrade to make sure it will stand up to extreme conditions felt in all the world’s hottest kitesurf locations.
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Improved Single-Point 'E-Z' Inflation:
All the struts and the leading edge are interconnected so you can inflate the kite through one single inflation valve, making your kite quick and easy to set up and ride. Attached to the leading edge are ‘inflate’ and ‘deflate’ valves making the kite easy to set up and pack down.
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Improved Air Clamps:
Rounded clips seal off the air between the leading edge and struts to ensure the entire kite won’t deflate in case of a puncture. It is also possible to deflate the leading edge while keeping your struts inflated for easy kite transportation. The connecting tubes in the ‘E-Z’ system have been covered with a neoprene sock which helps to protect them. The strut valves are manufactured with a softer material which achieves a better bond with the bladders.
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Improved Reinforced Strut Ends:
Rugged strut ends made with an
anti-abrasive material help protect the struts when handling the kite. These enlarged strut tips also make for an easier bladder replacement process.
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Wingtip Dump Valve:
Flexifoil were the first company to introduce this feature which makes it quick to deflate and roll up the kite after a session. Open the tip valve, main valves and air clamps and then roll up the kite from one end to the other. The air is expelled in one motion and leaves the kite ready to pack away.
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Upgraded Colour Coded Flying Lines:
The new AH PRO kites’ explosive performance creates a high peak load on the flying lines. To withstand this power, the flying lines have been upgraded to 270kg (from 250kg). The line lengths are exactly the same as Aaron uses. 22m - (18m + 4m)
Flexifoil Shiva Water Relaunchable
Velcro Valve Fastening:
Strong Velcro tabs keep the valves securely in place.

Description

The Flexifoil Shiva 3D is a result of months of work by Flexifoil's design team, and they believe it is the most advanced hybrid design on the market this season. It's perfect for freeride and wave riding.

 

The kite offers unparalleled ease of use, effortless relaunch, incredible turning speed and windrange, as well as legendary Flexifoil build quality.


The Flexifoil Shiva has a light bar pressure, which takes the work out of riding, but still gives you amazing feedback through the bar. It’s super stable qualities and user friendliness let you concentrate on your riding and push your limits on the water.


The Shiva kite has good lift which freeriders and freestylers will love, but maintains all of the characteristics necessary to make it great for wave
riding.

 

Flexifoil have worked hard to make the Shiva turn very quickly for their size, which is essential to good waveriding performance, and given the Shiva and amazing amount of depower which keeps you in control as you are flying down the wave.

 

The profile of the hybrid design allows the kite to drift downwind when you turn towards it, and delivers smooth, predictable power during smooth loops down the line.

 

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 3D lets you back off and control the pace.

 

The Flexifoil Shiva 3D 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 quiver.

 

If you are into wave riding or simply looking to get into kitesurfing then the Flexifoil Shiva 3D is the kite for you.

Trailing Edge
A triple ply trailing edge reduces aerodynamic flutter offering superb stability and a consistent drive.

 

Dacron Reinforcement
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 Shiva kites’ explosive performance creates a high peak load on the flying lines. To withstand this power, the flying lines have been upgraded to 270kg (from 250kg). The line lengths are 24m.



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.

 

Anti Flutter
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.

 

Rigid Strut
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 Leading Edge Tube
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 experience.

 

Dacron Reinforcements
Dacron® front and rear attachment points ensures the load is
spread evenly through the kite. Dacron® cage keeps the kite light whilst still retaining strength.

Depower Control Bar

Flexifoil Shiva ("Sky") Control Bar:

The Flexifoil Shiva ("Sky") control bar has designed to be easy to use for any level of rider, to have great durability and full adjustability meaning that as your riding style progresses you can adapt the setup on the bar. The bar is available with a full range of accessories so that you can customize the bar to suit your riding style as your kitesurfing skills progress.

 

Flexifoil Shiva SLE LEI BOW Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Design process
Flexifoil use an integrated approach to the design of the kite and bar and strive to keep the number of moving parts to a minimum whilst still retaining complete functionality.

Proven single release system
The simplest yet most effective safety release system on the market. The primary release cover is always where you would expect to find it – just above your chicken loop. This means that it is quick and easy to find and activate. The simple reconnection process is intuitive, possible to do under the water and - with experience - with only one hand!

 

Retro-fittable
As well as working with the Flexifoil Force, the cotnrol bar is compatible with all our legacy hybrid-style water kites as well as future hybrid kites. You can have peace of mind knowing that your bar will work with past, present and future hybrid Flexifoil kites as well as many other brands.

 

Control Bar Ergonomics

The grip on the bar is soft and easy on the hands, so that even in cold weather your bar is far more comfortable and will not make your hands sore - even after prolonged use. Ergonomic bar ends provide a solid connection point at the end of the bar to improve the overall feedback from the kite whilst turning. The soft over-moulding protects your hands when kite looping and enables easy line storage on the bar.

 

Easy adjustability of centre line length
People of all shapes and sizes fly Flexifoil kites. The bar is fitted with a simple system enabling you to adjust the length of your centre line. Flexifoil have clearly labeled the centre line and on the leader lines, enabling you to know exactly where you need to attach your lines when altering the centre line length.

 

Centre Line Wear Indicator
The centre line has a red-coloured secondary internal line which indicates the amount of wear. When the outer Dyneema® line fails due to wear the inner red line becomes visible. This internal line has enough strength to enable you to comfortably make it back to the beach even if you are a long way out.

 

Centre line durability
Through prolonged use, all centre lines wear. Flexifoil have worked hard to make sure that our centerline is one of the best available on the market. Flexifoil use heavy-duty 5.6mm, 12 strand, Dyneema® line which is wax coated to improve durability and resilience.

 

V-Core
The Flexifoil Sky control bar is fitted with the Flexifoil V-Core - the angled hole in the bar through which the centre line runs. This vastly reduces centre line wear and helps to lighten the turn. The V-Core also allows you to turn and sheet-in at the same time.
