Kite Only includes (Kite, Technical Bag with Repair Kit)
THE BLIZZARD V1 IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN AN ULTRALIGHT VERSION. THIS IS THE SAME DESIGN PRODUCED WITH HIGH QUALITY LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS AND WITH OUT THE BLOW-OUT VALVES TO REDUCE WEIGHT AND PACKING VOLUME TO A MINIMUM - IDEAL FOR TRAVELLING AND EXPEDITIONS. THE ULTRALIGHT VERSION IS 25% LIGHTER AND PACKS DOWN TO AROUND HALF THE SIZE!
The UltraLight offers true performance increases and enhanced flying characteristics. It inflates quicker, launches in lighter winds, flies faster, stays in the air longer in gusty conditions, and is more reactive even in the lightest breeze.
It is the kite of choice for those who want to explore - it might be mountains you have to skin up before kiting the ridges, or a vast wilderness you are attempting to cross, so you want as little weight as possible for those days you have to walk.
The technical backpack is the same design as the standard version using lighter materials. To reduce weight and packing volume even further we have use unsheathed spliced and stitched Edelrid bridle line - this line is not just lighter and thinner, it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in faster flying and tighter turns.
The kite must be carefully looked after, it needs an experienced rider who knows how to keep the kite up in the air and how to handle it gently on the ground. The UltraLight kites will be produced on request only, please contact your local dealer/distributor and order early to plan for production and delivery time.
The Blizzard V1 UltraLight is available as a Kite Only option or Kite Complete with the Contact-Snow Control System and lightweight Technical Mountain Backpack. We recommend adding the Snowkite Kompressor Bag to either option to keep your kite packed and secured as small as possible.
