The Edge has a unique pedigree,dating back to the original “Instinct Edge” and well known to pack a serious punch! The latest version takes it to the next level – an explosive high adrenaline freeride machine that will leave you in withdrawal after every session. True addiction comes naturally with the Edge V9, the heavy hitter with an honest high!
The design brief for the ninth version of Edge was to radically improve free ride and old school big air potential, while maintaining its renowned multiple World Championship winning speed and race performance.
We have completely re-worked the kite design so that the bar feeling, with the balance between front and rear line pressure optimised for intuitive kite positioning and improved pitch control. Consequently, riding the Edge V9, you can easily sense where the kite is at any time, the entire bar throw range offers a progressive feedback feel making it turn faster and easier to time the take off for going massive.
We have redesigned our struts they are now a continuous curve design and this means we have higher levels of control over sail tension and reduced sail luff through the angle of attack range, giving a smoother ride with less bar bounce. The airfoil section has also been refined for increased hang time, and although this change is small in detail it is very noticeable in the air. The wing tip shape and cross section re-design combined with re-positioned bridle attachment points increases drive in the turn and enhances load distribution along the leading edge. This directly translates to all-round high performance delivered to any style of riding, all while going fast!
On any type of race or speed course the Edge V9 has a serious performance advantage – warp speed riding at amazing up and downwind angles will have you clear ahead of the competition. Our unique low-drag pulley-less bridle system using high performance Kevlar line is 50% thinner than our standard bridle line, resulting in a vast reduction in parasitic drag which increases acceleration and wind range. Combined with the Ozone Race Control System and Race Flying Lines the Edge V9 truly is the leading high performance LEI package.
