Light wind? No problem. The Trace has a progressive straight, square outline and large surface area for early planing and upwind performance in the lightest winds. A Centre-V Spine and longitudinal quad channels provide balanced torsional stiffness, superb traction and more control. The progressive medium-low rocker is ideal for flatwater. It also enables phenomenal pop for lightwind tricks and transitions and surprising manoeuvrability for its size. Pair the Trace with our Reach 13/15/17m to maximise your ride time in the lightest of winds.

TECHNOLOGY

Early planing & upwind performance

The combination of extra waterline length, a straighter, square outline, wide tips and medium rocker guarantees early planing and superior upwind performance in the lightest wind.

 

Centre V-Spine and quad channels

The channels and V-spine also help with upwind traction and high-speed control.

 Ideal for use with the 13/15/17m Reach

The Reach’s fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while its lighter weight 3-strut construction delivers quick, responsive steering in even the lightest wind. In the three larger sizes, the Reach is a powerful light wind kite, designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in

Balanced rocker, outline and flex               

Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics

Lightweight, impact resistant paulownia wood core


Ultra-lightweight, with a high shear force and high impact resistance, Paulownia wood forms a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin used in manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions. Each board has a customised core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.

FlipTech Mounting


We recommend pairing your Atmos Carbon with the new Flex LX bindings, which provide soft cushioning with just the right amount of grip underfoot. The new anatomically-shaped heel cup supports and stabilizes the foot upon landing, giving your heel the correct orthopaedic position and preventing slipping.Pure-comfort seamless KnitFlex inners and triple-density footbeds are combined with customised size and stance adjustments for a locked-in feel. Sold separately in sizes S, M, L and XL
