What we like:
The TS is a jack of all trades that will keep you stoked no matter what the session of the day is: race, freestyle, wave, freeride etc. These kites have different shapes for the different wind speeds you are riding which makes the kite perform well through the entire range. We really like the turning speed and direct feeling on the bar. As a little extra bonus, this kite water relaunches well too.
What we don’t like:
The smaller sizes of this kite are a little aggressive for your average user. The 9m and up are awesome for intermediate riders but if you are looking for a slower small kite you may be better off with the 2013 Best Kahoona V5.
Why you want the 2013 Best TS:
If you want to supercharge your sessions you should try out the TS.
If your sessions take in unhooked new school, freeride and even some wave riding then the TS is made for you. Built with our Double Core RS canopy fabric the TS v2 delivers amazing crossover performance with the focus firmly on new school and unhooked performance. It is responsive and stable in all conditions.
The 5m and 6m TS sizes are the perfect high wind kites. Their Ride Optimized open-c platform delivers rock solid stability, predictable handling and broad sweet spot to help you conquer any conditions. The 7m – 12m sizes let you express your style in the air and on any wave. Responsive unhooked steering, light bar feel and great jumping ability ensure the TS remains the favorite sizes for new school riding- it’s the most versatile SLE kite in our 2013 line-up.
For light wind riding and racing, the 15m and 17m TS kites are the most aerodynamically refined and popular light wind kites we’ve ever made. The largest TS sizes will keep you riding after everyone else has packed up for the day.
“Performance for all – With the TS v2 I wanted to provide high performance riding in every category for every rider. We’ve managed to squeeze more speed from each size and reduce bar pressure on every kite; it’s incredibly fun to ride.”
