Product Description:

Rider Profile: For the savvy rider that wants the highest performance, most versatile, top quality construction kite on the market.

The evolution continues in the 11th year of the Switchblade. With enhanced profiles to optimize the low end power production and a bit of fine tuning, the 2016 Switchblade delivers spot on performance its fans have come
to expect. The five strut design has distinct segments that hold the canopy true to its intended shape increasing performance no matter the wind conditions or angle of attack.

The Switchblade remains true to the spirit of kiteboarding, making it the industry’s first choice for a high performance all around kite.
