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 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 N-Dure 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 9, 10 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. For 2024 we’ve updated the Code Zero with a newly revised bridle for a more rigid feel, lighter bar pressure, more direct steering response and added stability. We’ve optimised the angle of attack in the wingtip and improved the tension in the trailing edge for smoother aerodynamics and reduced flutter. And we’ve introduced three new sizes to the range: 6, 8 and 10m. The Code Zero is a highly efficient kite with a wide wind range and impressive power delivery for a one-strut kite – so you can ride lighter wind conditions with a smaller kite.

Fast light wind performance

Ideal for foil and wave riding, the Code Zero has excellent drift, manoeuvrability and extremely fast, reactive steering.

Newly revised bridle

The redesigned bridle gives the kite a more rigid feel, with lighter bar pressure, more direct response and added stability

More direct steering

The steering response is result of the reworked bridling. We’ve also increased the low end slightly – while maintaining responsiveness

Smoother aerodynamics and minimal flutter

We’ve optimised the angle of attack in the wingtip, making it more direct, and improved the tension in the trailing edge.

More sizes for 2024

We’ve added in three new sizes: 6m, 8m and 10m. If you’re <70kg and hydrofoiling, you won’t need bigger than an 8m – even in the lightest winds.

One of the lightest single-strut kites ever designed

In light wind kiting, you want to go out using the smallest possible kite in the least amount of wind to keep the kite flying.

DuraLite Reinforcement

The 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-MAX Dacron

12 % Lighter and 21 % less elongation compared to standard Dacron (156gsm)

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.

Ride lighter wind conditions with a smaller kite

With responsive power delivery in light, shifty conditions, the Code Zero is highly efficient, and it reacts super direct on steering impulses.

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

Compact, travel-friendly size

Your lightweight Code Zero packs down into a high-quality Recycled PET kite bag with Foil Assist
