Peter Lynn Vapor Power / Traction Kite >>
Peter Lynn Vapor In Action:
The Vapor is the ultimate high performance fixed bridle kite. Built for top level kite buggy racing, it pushed the envelope in every aspect. From its flat out performance to its exceptional build quality and high end materials.
Next to that it is more agile, has better upwind performance and offers a more rewarding challenge to mastering its full potential.
Nearly two years of development and testing have produced a kite which is not only one of the fastest kites on the planet but amazingly stable too. This balance is testament to the vision and dedication to 'Excellence with no compromise' shown by the design team and riders encompassing the ethos of the Peter Lynn Pro-Range of kites.
A combination of the finest materials available matched with the application of cutting edge design, the most stringent quality control and production techniques place the Vapor at the top of race kite technology.
Unlike many race kites the Vapor's handling characteristics mean that it is not just restricted to the most expert of pilots. In fact most intermediate pilots would be surprised how well behaved this kite is and would benefit greatly and experience the improvement and enhancement of their own performance. Make no mistake though, this is a fast powerful kite chosen by some of the top pilots in the world and thus deserves some healthy respect.
Be it in a full blown race buggy or on ski's or landboard you can be sure that the Vapor has the power to put you in front!
Vapor 2 ( II) Improvements:
Bridge Rib Technology:
The Peter Lynn Vapor is one of the fastest kites on planet Earth! Not just an empty boast but proven on the dry lake beds of Nevada in North America as well as helping John Jansen to realize his dream of winning the European Kite buggy championships.
The light wind performance of the larger sizes is truly outstanding and the manoeuverability of the bigger kites will be a welcome surprise. During final testing, Peter Lynn pilots were able to achieve speeds up to approx 30kph in virtually zero wind! At the other end of the scale the smaller kites you will find are blisteringly fast but never too much for the experienced rider to handle. The Vapor will give you the ride of your life!
Fast and Direct Steering:
The Peter Lynn Vapor is agile and has positive response to your steering input. You will be amazed by the fast and direct handling of this race kite. When riding with a Vapor, you have the ability to place the kite exactly where you want it. This enables you to accelerate faster and make turns quicker with full confidence. Even the largest sizes loop on short lines which will help you to get that extra bit of speed in your turns or downwind runs. After tight turns the Vapor will not stall out or hold back, it is always eager to fly and maintain its speed in flight helping you to get those winning results.
The Vapor is unrivalled in its balance between performance and stability. This is partly due to the reflex designed into the kite’s profile which makes the kite very reluctant to collapse even in the most demanding conditions whilst not compromising performance in any way. Whether you’re cranking hard upwind, or running with the wind you will always feel in complete control. Although the Vapor is one of the highest performance kites in the world, it exhibits many of the more user friendly aspects commonly associated with kites of a much lower aspect ratio leaving you free to concentrate more on your riding.
Smooth but fast power build-up:
The power delivery of the Peter Lynn Vapor is smooth and fast. You won’t need to throw your kite around the window to get it up to speed! Its progressive and direct power will have you up there in no time. This means easier transitions around marks and maximizing speed through the turns giving you the opportunity of staying out in front!
Peter Lynn Vapors are quite powerful kites for their size, so you don’t always need the biggest kite to win. Besides this, the Vapor has quite a big wind range. You can work the kite up to speed very easily. Due to the broad range of sizes and their large wind range per size you will notice there is a comfortable overlap of power between the sizes. The larger sizes have a higher aspect ratio compared to the smaller sizes which gives them a similar feel across the range. The smaller sizes are closer together giving pilots more choice over kite size when they really need it!
The Vapor has been designed with minimum lift characteristics. This is a big benefit to pilots carrying out high speed maneuvers and reduces the chances of being lifted from your buggy.

Absolutely excellent product. I ordered this kite last year and was initially hesitant I was just getting into kite buggying and wondered if I would get use out of it and I have. It is easily my favourite kite.
Briefly to describe my usual set-up, I kite buggy with a PL Competition XR+. I have tried a few other kites prior to the Vapor and the Vapor easily surpasses them in terms of responsiveness and ability to deal with gusts of wind.
Where I do most of my kite buggying the conditions are generally excellent, sometimes too good with winds up to Bf6 and gusts to Bf7. With experience though I have managed these conditions and yielded huge speeds and very enjoyable days out with the Vapor.
Upwind tacking is achievable in the vast majority of winds. However my true love of this kite is the responsiveness - it allows hairpin cornering and huge power slides.
Having owned this kite for 10 months I can say build quality is top notch, an excellent kite and I would recommend it.
