The Razor ships standard with our limited throw,”mini 5th” Freestyle SLE bar and lines or optionally with our traditional Freeride SLE bar and lines.
ALL 2011 KITES FEATURE 100% NEW UV RESISTANT TPU BLADDER MATERIAL SOURCED FROM THE USA
- 2011 Freerde SLE 4.0 Bar, 42-49cm, 48-55cm. The 2011 Freeride SLE bar will ship standard with the 2011 Rise and as an option for the 2011 Razor. Functionally, the 2011 Freeride SLE Bar will be much the same as our 2010 SLE Bar but will feature some key revisions. The Chicken Loop has been entirely redesigned to allow the trim line to travel in a straighter line, reducing friction and making trim adjustment much easier. Further, the release tab has been enlarged further minimize the chance of a bumped / unintentional eject while offering easy release in an emergency. Finally, the colours of the bar have been changed to be consistant with the company’s burnt orange / grey / black colour scheme.

The 2011 Surf Series ships standard with a full sized EVA foam pad eliminating slippery sections inherent with other directional boards, no wax required!
