Flexifoil "All-In-One" Force Control Bar system:

The Flexfoil Force (All-In-One) Bar is simple, effective and comfortable. You can trim the kite with ease whilst riding. The Bar pressure give great feedback without being too heavy on your arms making for a comfortable session.

 

The centre line and leader lines are all easily adjustable, meaning no matter your size you’ll be able to set the bar up to suit. A number of parts of the bar are also upgradable meaning that as your ability grows you can customise the bar to suit.

Relaunch
There are two possible relaunching scenarios on the Flexifoil ION 4 , and in both cases it’s very simple and easy to get going again ...

1) The kite has landed at the edge of the window as a result of using the safety system or letting go of the bar. In this case, steer the kite off the water.

2) The kite has landed in the centre of the window (on its front) as a result of steering the kite in to the water. To relaunch simply swim towards the kite to roll it on its back, steer to the edge of the window and then steer off the water. This relaunch technique is the same as a conventional ‘C’ shape kite.

 

Wave riding (Tunable)
The Flexifoil ION 4 won’t pull you off the wave and the improved profile makes it very difficult to stall. It drives through the turn keeping you powered and ahead of the whitewater.

Bar pressure (Tunable)

The bar pressure is nicely balanced to give good feedback without being too heavy on the arms.

Bar system (Tunable)
Simple, effective and comfortable. The control bar and depower system will allow you to trim the kite easily whilst riding - allowing you to concentrate on your kiting without any distractions.

Description

New for 2013 Flexifoil introduce the FORCE. Combined with the qualities of the ION but with a brand new shape, the FORCE flies like a true C-Kite but generates a performance similar to that of a hybrid. Its 4-strut design creates a more curved profile whilst its fully supportive bridle produces better performance, stability and control of the kite.


Outstanding design and build quality have always been at the centre of Flexifoil’s core values. You can be assured that a Flexifoil kite will give the best value along with a performance that is second-to-none, whether they change kites annually or prefer to keep them for the long haul.


The FORCE has been created from the ground up using the latest 3D CAD technologies; a completely new series that has taken on manufacturing processes that have evolved over the last few years. This ensures capable and reliable production to guarantee quality you can trust.


A refined leading edge and strut design with improved canopy construction gives the FORCE a more fluid and curved leading edge providing the ultimate in performance.

 

The FORCE will deliver more than just satisfaction to every level of rider.

 

The Flexifoil Force is available in four versatile sizes – 7m, 9m, 11m, 13.5m offering you a size for all wind conditions.

 

Performance Features:

 

New 4 Strut Layout Pattern: The FORCE is the first Flexifoil high performance hybrid kite to use a 4-strut design. Not only have
we reduced the amount of struts on the FORCE but we have also made these thinner making the kite lighter & faster.

 

Reduced Leading Edge Tube: Designing the FORCE required the correct balance between stability, upwind ability and weight of kite. For the FORCE Flexifoil were able to reduce the size of the leading edge to give it greater speed and to offer a more efficient turning experience

 

Refined Aerofoil Shape: An important part of kite design is producing a kite that is as close to the original 3D model as possible. Taking a 3D design and translating it into patterns cut by CNC fabric cutters, printed and then assembled by skilled seamstresses takes expertise, which only comes with experience.

 

Fully Supported Bridle:
A fully supportive bridle system creates better stability and control of the kite through its entire wind range and angle of attack. Each size has a unique bridle system that has been customised to suit that particular size.

 

Slash Cut Wingtips:
Similar to the HADLOW ID, the FORCE uses Slash Cut technology on its wingtips. The heavily tapered wingtips distribute the load across the entire tube, allowing for a thinner tip and creating sharper, faster turns as well as helping with a quick relaunch.

 

Anti Flutter Trailing Edge Battens: 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.

 

Single Optimum Front Toggle:

A distinctive feature on the smaller FORCE kites, the 7m & 9m, is a single connection point on the leading edge. The optimum position has been tested thoroughly so the rider benefits from maximum performance, wind range and stability from the kite.

 

Variable Profile:

Each size has its own unique profile. The kites aren’t just scaled up; each size has been designed individually. This gives every kite the ultimate performance in their given wind range.

 

Ultra Light Version: The FORCE UL 13.5, which offers a completely different profile to the rest of the range whilst still incorporating the key performance characteristics. With a higher Aspect Ratio, thinner profile, and a revised planform unique to this design, the 13.5 has greater relaunch capabilities, speed, and response in lighter winds.

 

Construction Features:

 

Teijin T9600 Technology: All canopies of water kites in the current Flexifoil range including the Flexifoil Force are carefully constructed from world renowned Japanese milled Teijin T9600 material to give you the peace of mind of a durable, long lasting fabric with the best available coating and optimal UV resistance.

 

110 micron TPU Bladders: Flexifoil is proud to use 110micron TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) bladders (as opposed to the standard 90 micron) giving you the peace of mind of having a more puncture resistant and durable bladder in your Flexifoil Force.

 

Molten Bladder Technology: 2013 continues to see the introduction of improved bladder welding techniques to Flexifoil water kites. The new welding process has been tested up to a sweltering 120 degrees centigrade to make sure it will stand up to extreme conditions felt in the world’s equatorial kitesurf locations. No matter where in the world you choose to fly you will feel confident in the bladders.


Increase Protection, Reduced Weight:
With each new release of kite, Flexifoil work on improving the reinforcement of your kite to protect it on the beach.

 

The Flexifoil R&D team have succeeded in reducing the weight and bulkiness of the Aerodynamic Bumper Strips developing them to be as low profile as possible to keep the kite fast and light with no minimal extra drag whilst protecting the kite on the beach.


Solid & Stiff Wingtip Construction: You willl find an increased diameter of the leading edge tube at the kite wingtip to give a more rigid structure making the kite much less likely to deform whilst turning. With the kite holding its shape better you get a much more direct and responsive feel. You will also benefit from the wingtips being fitted with a small webbing strap that prevents the flying lines from getting caught around them.

 

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 faster.

 

Rigid Strut: The struts are mated to the leading edge tube with webbing
reinforcement strips giving you millimetre perfect construction,
improved strength and increased rigidity in the kite frame.

 

Reinforced Dacron 175 Leading Edge Tube: Dacron® 175 is the most stable material our team have found so far being resistant to stretch in multiple directions over the life of the product and very resistant against the rough beach environment. Reinforced Nylon patches around all leading edge segments increase the stiffness and strength of the tube to help soak up a few slams and maintain the shape of the aerofoil to maximise power.

 

Wingtip Dump Valve: Extremely quick and simple pack down as the valve dumps all the air out of the bladders as the kite is rolled up.

 

Dacron Reinforcements: Dacron® reinforcements support the front and rear attachment points ensuring the load is spread evenly through the kite. The Flexifoil Dacron® cage reinforces the high loaded areas where the struts and leading edge meet the canopy keeping the kite light whilst still retaining strength.

 

Riding Characteristics:

 

Jumping: The Flexifoil Force is designed to get smooth jumps and loads of float with gentle, controlled lift plus its nice and easy to feel where the kite is when coming in to land. The bar position on the centre line makes a massive difference in the height of the jump. In strong winds all you need to do is send the kite and pull the bar towards you and you take off – big airs are effortless.

If you’re into unhooked jumps and powered wake-style tricks then the Flexifoil Force is also the one for you! Keeping power in the turn, you will get constant and predictable pull during kite loops.

 

Stability: The kite is really stable even in gusty winds and when the kite is depowered it remains rock-solid in the sky. There is always a smooth feedback to the bar from the kite, making it great for progressing and learning new tricks. The Flexifoil Force excels in gusty conditions as the kite remains stable making it great for flying sites that can have turbulent conditions.

Simplicity: The Flexifoil Force has been designed to make your life easy and your kite flying fun!

All attachments to the kite are simple larkshead knot - colour-coded and labeled - so it’s hard to get it wrong.

Safety-Freeride Setup: 4-lines with a mini-leash running through the centre hole in the bar which pulls on the two front lines when the safety is activated. This kills 90% of the power from the kite and the kite comes down at the edge of the window, ready for easy relaunch.

Flexifoil Control Bar

Flexifoil Force ("All-In-One") Control Bar:

The Flexifoil Force ("All-In-One") 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  Force 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 Force 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.
