HYPERMODEL is for those seeking the highest performance. The boundary pushers, the fearless, the demanding.
Engrained with SUPERMODEL DNA, hypercharged with ALUULA. Lighter and stronger with a thinner LE for instant response, means faster, tighter loops that catch much earlier, giving you glide for days to land your single or multiple loop variations with ease. Incredible low-end, insane drift capabilities and rocksteady top-end stability makes HYPERMODEL the most versatile hyperformance do-it-all kite in the skies.
“It’s like a SUPERMODEL on steroids! HYPERMODEL does everything faster. You’ll go higher, further, quicker, while keeping the versatility to handle everything you throw at it. I’m so psyched about the new possibilities this kite opens up.”
Stiffer, stronger, lighter The new, stiffer frame makes hypermodel super stable in the most extreme conditions – no extra struts required. By reducing the LE diameter, reworking the arc shape, and bridle re-tuning, hypermodel is much faster and turns way quicker, while keeping that smooth and predictable power delivery and acceleration out of the turns that Damien’s kites have become so loved for.
The added weight reduction of up to 25% compared to a Supermodel HTF makes a world of difference. HyperModel catches you so much earlier after a loop, and climbs up so quickly that you’ll have glide for days… Frothing test-rider reports of double-loops and first-try tricks being landed came flying into our mailboxes. The excitement was unreal!
HYPERFORMANCE DO-IT-ALL KITE
HYPERMODEL is without a doubt geared towards high performance. Its direct steering response and instant feedback to the rider are loved by our pro’s. The increase in low-end and overall wind-range, very low stall speeds, and easier relaunch capabilities will benefit all riders, but it does tip the scale away from the comfortable, gust-absorbing side. However, HYPERMODEL stays true to its SuperModel origins, being an all-around performance do-it-all kite. It’s ready to take all your boosting, waveriding, foil, and freeride sessions to exhilarating new levels.
Wind range Being up to 25% lighter than a SuperModel HTF, HYPERMODEL brings incredible light-wind performance. On the other end of the spectrum, the stiffness of HYPERMODEL’s frame makes it handle the most extreme conditions with ease.
Boost and hangtime HYPERMODEL is so much faster, its speed generates significantly more apparent wind. You’ll be amazed at how it shoots you up in the sky, generating smooth power in your heli- and down-loops to glide you down softly.
Waveriding Improved drift gives a very consistent line tension allowing you to line up more turns and hit more sections than ever before.
Foiling Generating more apparent wind, means you can choose a smaller kite in lighter winds. You’ll love the drift, quick precise turning, and won’t worry about front-stalls.
Insane progression Having a faster kite means you can practice tricks in lighter winds, making it much safer to progress. Keep your board off longer, loop more confidently, and stick those landings with ease.
Confidence Thanks to its SUPERMODEL DNA, the flight characteristics will instantly boost your confidence. It’s stable, predictable, and gives superb bar-feedback. It’s like an extension of your body.
