The Mono is a modern one strut design best suited to the accomplished Freerider wanting to travel light and advance on a Twin Tip, Directional or Foil. Stripping it back to basics, the Mono takes inspiration from the Neo where a soft bar feel and linear power development are key. The Mono is easy to relaunch, offers a stable canopy and a very smooth handling. A very light but also very robust kite in a simple package. Completely new in the range is the absolute light wind machine, the 15sqm. Get ready to enjoy a playful ride powered by a simple design.

• excellent depower • quick and easy to relaunch • fast and reactive steering • reduced flutter • more precise bar feedback •more stable in gusts • soft bar feel and linear power development • quick turning with better follow-through

The focus for the new Mono 2017 was to step up the bar feel and responsiveness while reducing flutter, which is the main drawback of one strut kites in general.

This is what the designer says (Ken Winner): „The Mono 15 can be good for extremely light and steady wind on a hydrofoil. A light, steady seabreeze that ranges from 5 knots to gusts of 10 knots should be good. In such a situation, flying with a 5th line helps with relaunch. The Mono is also good for light wind on a Nugget or big twintip. Mainly because it hangs in the air and relaunches well - both owing to light weight - but also because it has a bit more raw grunty power in light wind. That said, kites with one or zero struts have a bit more backstall tendency in low-power conditions.“
