Switch Kites launch Element

3 February 2012 | 3:56 pm

After a long period of testing Switch Kites are launching an all terrain kite called Element

It’s a low-aspect 3-strut SLE, packaged in an open ‘C’ shape, solid, versatile, stable, predictable and very responsive. Whether you want to kitesurf on waves or snowkite Element might just be the right choice.

It suits all skill levels and is available in 7, 9, 11 and 13m2 size.

Felix Pivec says “I have now been kiting for 14 years and have had the chance to fly many kites from various brands ranging in size and style. I have never been able to find a larger style kite that will get me going in light air and do what I want it to do. Turn when I want it to turn and drift flawlessly and have great loft for some strapless jumps. After endless hours of R&D the Element was born and I have to say I’m super stoked with the outcome. I now have a kite which will get me out there and make things super fun in light air.”
