Borrowed from our North sailing heritage, Code Zero is the name of a sail born to go fast in light, shifty conditions. Like its namesake, we've engineered this kite for performance in very light air. The all-new Code Zero is a light, fast and reactive single-strut performer with effortless one-handed control and efficient light wind power delivery. It flies and turns quickly - with excellent drift and manoeuvrability which makes it ideal for foiling and small surf. One of the lightest single-strut kites available, the Code Zero has a playful and agile feel with dynamic steering. Refined for weight savings, we’ve stripped back the kite’s construction to the essential. Using lighter DLE140 dacron on the leading edge and strut for stiffness and durability, a double-canopy layer to reinforce the trailing edge and lighter-weight bladder material in every size. DuraLite wingtip chafe protectors provide abrasion resistance only where you need it, and small battens on the 9m and 11m stabilize the canopy. Super fun and easy to fly, with intuitive relaunch and reverse launch, the Code Zero is also great for learning to kite or foil in light winds. The kite is stable and evenly tensioned, with a balanced geometry. It won't luff, over-fly or front stall, and its one-handed steering means you can always foil in your preferred stance. The Code Zero is a highly efficient kite with a wide wind range and impressive power delivery for a one-strut kite - which means you can ride lighter wind conditions with a smaller kite. With the 3, 5, and 7m, you'll cover the whole wind range, from 10 to 30 knots.",

Blazing-fast light wind performance
Ideal for foil and wave riding, the Code Zero has excellent drift, manoeuvrability and extremely fast, reactive steering. Engineered for travelling at speeds so fast other kites couldn’t keep up, the Code Zero has excellent drift for foiling, where you travel at very high speeds downwind and it's important the kite goes along with you
One of the lightest single-strut kites ever designed
In light wind kiting, you want to have the smallest possible kite in the least amount of wind. To keep the kite flying, the less weight it has, the easier it is to fly. We wanted to see what was possible, how light you could go without losing performance or making it too fragile. Engineered using the lightest materials possible, we’ve taken a minimalist approach – there’s nothing on it you don’t need. This helps contribute to the Code Zero’s playful, agile feel and fun, dynamic steering.
DuraLite ReinforcementThe only added reinforcements are the Duralite seam protectors on the wingtip and the center strut, providing abrasion resistance only where you need it.
2-Ply Canopy Trailing Edge reinforcement
A double layer of canopy material at the trailing edge provides optimal tension in the canopy shape, keeping it as smooth as possible and helping the kite to fly faster through the sky.
Lighter N-DURE Dacron
We’ve used N-Dure lighter weight dacron in the leading edge and strut. This ensures the airframe meets the structural demands without adding unnecessary weight.
Lighter weight bladders
We’ve chosen a lighter weight bladder material to match the refined lighter construction method. These ingredients combine for a super lightweight kite with the fastest response and turning speeds possible.
Ideal for foil and wave riding
Excellent drift, manoeuvrability and extremely fast, reactive steering ensures the Code Zero flies through the air and turns quickly.
Easy to fly, stable and evenly tensioned, the Code Zero won’t luff, over-fly or front stall
The balanced geometry makes flying one-handed a breeze. This means you can maintain your preferred stance when changing direction, without getting into an awkward position.
Ride lighter wind conditions with a smaller kite
With responsive power delivery in light, shifty conditions, the Code Zero is highly efficient, with super direct steering impulse. The Code Zero has a wide wind range and impressive power for a one-strut kite. With a 3, 5 and 7m you can cover the whole wind range, from 10 to 30 knots. It depends on the size, but it performs best in its low-end range, and will carry you through the lulls and gusts. When you’re riding with more wind, the smaller sizes will open the world of foil freestyle. The kite is lighter and faster through the window, making it fun for performing tricks.
Easy relaunch and reverse launch
Curved leading edge profile means less surface area touching the water surface, for fast, headache-free launching.
N-HTRS High Performance Canopy Material
All our kites are constructed using high tenacity polyester yarn ripstop canopy for lightness, high tear strength, zero porosity and longevity.
HyperFlow rapid single-point inflation
Ergonomic high volume single point inflation system with large diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. The cap and valve base geometry are optimised for more comfortable opening and closing in colder conditions (when your fingers are freezing). The bayonet style main inflation valve is compatible with most pumps - no adapter required.
Compact, travel-friendly size
Your lightweight Code Zero packs down into a high-quality GoGreen Recycled PET kite bag with Foil Assist. The recycled polyester ripstop fabric meets the Global Recycling Standard. The Kite Bag features a comfortable STPU padded area with groove designed especially for carrying a foil mast over your shoulder. It also features mesh windows for ventilation, zipper pockets for spare parts and storage, a Control System pocket and kite pump holder.
