Your desert island kite
Travel with less gear, ready for any adventure. The Reach is a lively and playful all-rounder for big jumps, upwind performance and effortless relaunch, with unparalleled versatility and wind range - making it your go-to kite in all conditions. It is naturally playful and easy to ride, with high-performance attributes to guarantee you’ll never grow out of it. Evolved from a calculated fusion of the Orbit, Pulse and Carve, the Reach Performance Freeride is designed to excel at everything, from wave-riding to boosts, loops and freestyle tricks, and is the perfect match for our Sonar Foils. The fuller profile generates power and efficiency, while its lighter weight 3-strut construction delivers quick, responsive steering in even the lightest wind. In the three larger sizes, the Reach is a powerful lightwind kite, designed with a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding long after everyone else has gone in.
Boosts and loops with a smooth reliable catch
The Reach has superb loft and hangtime with a compact steering radius, thanks to its medium aspect ratio design with wider wing-tip and well-balanced bridle. During a loop, many kites will pause before they climb back up, but the Reach has a smooth, consistent catch and doesn’t hesitate to come back around.
Incredible stability for foil and lightwind
Boasting predictable, consistent power delivery in every condition, the Reach has exceptional performance at the low-end - especially at slower speeds in lighter wind. It's moderate leading edge diameter provides additional buoyancy, helping the kite to release quickly from the water in even the lightest conditions.
Well-balanced tactile surf handling
Quick responsive steering and neutral static balance helps you fire up your performance in the surf, without any surprises. The Reach drifts well and doesn’t fall over, front-stall or back-stall - making it your go-to kite for foiling and wave-riding.
