The 2018 Star Taina Kite V7 is an exceptional waveriding and freestyle kite with its high responsiveness and drift ability. The hybrid/bow shape helps all of these strengths, including its relaunch. Its 4-strut, 4-line design is great for all skill levels.
"Kite, Bar, and Bag" Systems come with Elite V3 Bar 50cm, and 24m lines.
The Taina reacts very well to bar input, can be steered one-handed, and has a very precise feel allowing riders to position the kite anywhere in an instant. The kite’s excellent depower gives riders the option to surf with or without kite power. There is no need to look at the kite to know where it is allowing riders to completely focus on the wave.
This all-round beast turns sharp, jumps high, has incredible grunt, and catches well during mega-loops. Due to its great depower, sending the kite in overpowered conditions without losing your edge is easily achieved. Its power delivery is exponential giving the kite a superb vertical lift.
The Taina has incredible upwind performance and the ability to fly on all points of sail. With small wingtips, a big projected area, and only 3 struts, we have achieved the highest power to drag ratio making the Taina a top competitor for racing on water and snow.
