Fun & forgiving freeride design

Redesigned for 2016, the Catalyst V1 entry level freeride kite makes learning and riding easier than ever. Sitting deeper in the window that other kites with line pressure firmly set on the trailing edge, the Catalyst V1 continues pulling smoothly even when the wind or rider input fluctuates.
Featuring flag out safety, a pulley-less bridle, easy relaunch design and exceptional ozone quality, the Catalyst has a high level of depower and bar pressure making it as comfortable to ride as it is intuitive, allowing the rider to concentrate on where they’re going, rather that how to get there.

Delta-C leading edge shape increases wind range and all round performance.
Deep profile and narrow tips give a comfortable and easy going ride.
Fabric & construction
‘Split strut’ construction improves rigidness and overall strength.
