The new Rebel SLS is here to redefine the expectations of big air and high performance freeride kiteboarders across the globe. The heritage of the Rebel is second to none, but this year the new Penta TX frame combined with Trinity TX is going to change the way you think about freeriding and boosting. The new materials combined with an updated design and the Flex Struts make the kite incredibly dynamic; the low weight supercharges the kite's handling and allows it to develop even more power. In light winds, the difference is remarkable, and the larger sizes will offer unrivalled jumping and hangtime, when the wind is at the lower end of the scale. As the wind increases, the jumps get bigger, and the take-off becomes even more impressive. The acceleration into the air after you release the edge will have you pulling more G's than Yuri Gagarin, and the hangtime will leave you breathless. There are several tuning options on the kite, allowing you to dial in the bar pressure and turning speed to suit your riding style. You can also choose to ride the Rebel SLS in the four or five-line configuration; the fifth line is available as an accessory. The new materials, lighter weight and incredibly dynamic handling, combine to create one of the most exhilarating rides on the market. As soon as you start flying the Rebel SLS, you will instantly feel the power and performance at your fingertips. All you have to do is load up the edge of the board and get ready to send it to the moon!
The Click Bar with its Backline Trim Unit was a game-changer when it hit the market; the design has been refined over the years, and it’s become the benchmark in kite control systems. For 2023, there is a new Iron Heart VI which features a Click-In Safety System. This allows you to simply push the chicken loop into the Iron Heart VI for easy connection every time. Perfect for riders using a rope slider bar and a real help when you pop your chicken loop and need to reconnect, especially in the water. The floater is also removable so that you can inspect the leader lines of the bar easily , the progressive pigtails have a reduced sleeving, only where it is needed; this reduces the weight and the drag through the air at a critical connection point to the kite. The new FLITE99 lines from Robline reduce the drag through the air and offer a more direct steering response. The new V Distributor III can be adjusted easily, allowing you to quickly set the front line to split quickly. It can also be removed entirely, very easily, so you can have a very low V; this makes the Click Bar compatible with most kites on the market. There is a Suicide Ring leash connection system; ride it in full safety mode or easily set up suicide for unhooked riding. There is also a Click Bar in Medium with 12m + 12m extensions; this set-up is perfect for kite schools. If you want the ultimate control system for your kites, the Click Bar is the only choice you need to make; there is nothing better! For 2023, it’s refined, tuned and ready to perform at the highest levels of the sport.
“Oh that was just magical, it looked like another world, I never had an experience like that and I think in those terms, it would be hard to beat!”
A quote from arguably our most traveled athlete and longest in the team, Reno Romeu! If that’s what he has to say about Ireland, we must watch! Especially with Hannah Whitleley and Noe Font along for the ride!
