Versatile kite setup
All Peter Lynn Escape 2015 kites come with a wide array of

can be used to optimize the kite’s control and feedback
to your preference. Besides the ‘onkite’ settings
all Escape kites are supplied with 3 metre extension lines

length setting, windrange and performance can be set to

Peter Lynn Escape
Medium Aspect Ratio:
The Escape has an intermediate Aspect Ratio to offer the best
of all worlds in a wide array of disciplines and rider levels.
From steering to lift, to restart and powerrange, the aspect
ratio is optimized for comfort and progression.
New designed profile:
The Escape has been developed from a ‘green field’
situation, as a completely new design. Incorporating the expertise
of decades of kite development at Peter Lynn, this profile
is tested, developed and proven sublime for its use.
4 strut SLE design:
Light weight meets a rigid frame for an optimized blend of
control and performance. The Escape has a Supported Leading
Edge (SLE) format, for its depower characteristics and huge
Tear resistant canopy:
The Escape was built with the highest quality materials. Tejin
Technoforce T9600 polyester is used for the canopy, combined
with Dimension Polyant Dacron reinforcements and wingtips.
The frame is very rigid due to the direct connection struts.
For durability the struts are reinforced with seam protection
to prevent tear.
Efficient and durable
Dacron use has been optimized for the best match between weight
and longevity. Due to ‘tailor made’ placement
and panel shaping, the Dacron ensures a long lifetime. Tailoring
the amount and placing of relatively heavy Dacron material
to the size and target use of the kite ensures low overall
weight of the kite, adding to responsiveness and overall control.
Single point inflation:
For fast inflation, the Peter Lynn has a proven single point
inflation system. Just pump the kite through the center inflation
point and it will be ready for use in no time. For durability
and wear protection the tubing and valves are protected with
a Neoprene cover.
The frame, struts and leading edge are built with the most
durable Dacron. The Leading edge has been reinforced along
the complete stitch seam and the leading edge has Peter Lynn
EVA bumpers to protect it from damage whenever the kite crashes.
Making it one of the toughest frames on the market.
Trailing edge reinforcements:
For optimised durability and low weight, the trailing edge
has a double layer Technoforce construction with Bisonyl reinforcements
for maximal durability.
Kook-proof line connections
To prevent wrong attachment of the front and rear lines to
Variable power setting
Backline connection points offer adjustments to change the
bar pressure to personal preference.
To further define the kite’s characteristics to suit
your personal preference, the Escape (i.e. only complete kites
including bar) is supplied with 3 m extension lines. The longer
lines will give the kite a better low end, the shorter lines
make it a bit more snappy and aggressive. With the extension
lines you can set it up to your personal preference.
Various Setup Possibilities:
The Escape has adjustment possibility on the Backline
connection points to change the bar pressure to personal
This will adjust the overall depower,

Depower Control Bar
Lynn Navigator SL Control Bar and Lines:
The Navigator has a unique
design combining safety and user friendliness. The complete
Navigator bar is designed to be as clean as possible without
making any compromise in safety, user comfort or the possibility
of tuning your bar to your personal liking. Whether your
landboarding or snowkiting the Navigator is your safe connection
to a world of power.
The new Navigator SL (Supported Leading edge) and Navigator
TS (Twinskin) bars give you optimal control and comfort. The
bar is tapered so also without looking at the bar, you can
feel where your hands are holding it. For your fingers, cushioning
is added. The EVA foam is comfortable and durable. The centerline
goes through an alloy centerhole, giving you good center grip,
low friction and good freedom to steer, power and depower.
It offers all you need to control the kitepower.
Safety is one of the most important things when kiteboarding.
Kites can generate power that is not always wanted and which
can sometimes even be dangerous. If the rider needs to loose
the power of the kite, it is important that this can be done
instantly and without much effort. Often there is no possibility
to unhook the depower loop, therefore a bar need to be fitted
with a proper safety release mechanism. The Centrix depowerloop
on the Navigator bar is a specially designed part that includes
a reliable safety release.
When it comes to safety, one should not depend
on one solution only. So besides the Centrix safety release,
the lines include safety handles. Simply grab the line handles
and you can release your kite flagging it on 1 line, nearly
Navigator ease of
The navigator bar and Centrix depowerloop combination offer
control, safety and great ease of use. The package includes
a completely tangle free swivel. No more tangled lines after
your rotations. Adjusting the (de)power of the kite is done
through a proven Clamcleat power adjuster that is placed above
the bar. The best place to adjust the depower lines to your
The Navigator control system comes complete with safety leash,
for those wanting to ride unhooked. The safety leash is equipped
with a quick release might things go wrong, you can quickly
and easily release yourself. The leash can be connected directly
to the depowerline, or to the supplied ‘suicide connector’
In that case you connect the leash directly to the chicken
loop which should be considered by advanced and expert riders
Navigator easy replacements:
The Navigator control bar has been designed using the most
durable materials. However, as with all bar systems, parts
do wear in the long term. Peter Lynn has a focus on making
any replacements for these parts as simple and quick as possible,
to help you keep your bar safe with optimal performance at
Navigator bar sizes
and line length:
The Navigator is available in three packages, each offering
the best bar combination of bar size and corresponding length
of the supplied flying lines. Those riders wanting to use
just one bar for different sizes of kites, can thus find the
most suitable bar set. By making use of the extension flying
line set as well as the dual bar size endcaps, the bar can
be adjusted to fly better on smaller or larger kites.
Navigator SL and TS
As the Navigator SL and TS have different line-setups, make
sure you choose the right bar system. The Navigator SL is
setup for Supported Leading edge (LEI) kites, the Navigator
TS for Twinskins kites.
