The 2021 Navigator Control System raises the bar in kite safety, connecting you intuitively to your kite so you can think less and feel more. We’ve taken premium leading technology materials and applied simplified ergonomic design for precise performance with ease and comfort. Sensing your kite’s position just became second nature.
Intuitive single-action reload – Connect Quick Release with intuitive single action reload raises the bar in kite control system safety. The red Quick Release handle has been ergonomically designed to fit in your hand comfortably for an industry standard push away release.
Tactile offset finger bar – For an ergonomic grip and intuitive feel when the control bar is orientated correctly.
Low friction co-efficient materials – All loaded or running surfaces feature highly polished 316 stainless steel and low-friction components to enable fast, safe releases in a wide range of conditions.
Integrated retractable line winder bungee – Prevents tangled lines when packed up. Bungee retracts out of the way when not in use.
Leader line PU tubing covers – To help prevent line abrasion from uncovered lines against your skin, while color-coded PU tubing covers where the leaders come out of the float help them remain rigid and out of the way when the flying lines aren’t under tension.
Cleated trim system – Provides industry proven depower on demand.
Kook-proof line connectors – Ensure you always set up your lines correctly. Designed to be exactly the same length so you can easily change the front (knotted end) and rear (larks head loop) connectors to match most other manufacturers kite configurations
Optimized TPU material
Color-coded components – Grip, leader tubing and line retainer pull tabs give a nod to our sailing heritage, port (red) and starboard (green).
Injection-molded soft EVA bar ends – Ensure nothing hard comes in touch with you or your board, and contain rear line adjustment.
100 % Dyneema SK99 control line – Latest technology German-made LIROS DC Pro offers the highest load capacity with minimal line diameter, for less parasitic drag, extreme stretch resistance and the most direct performance.
Front lines 22m (12m + 10m) – Making it much easier to check lines and order spare parts. 22m lines have a split at 12m, which is far enough for the bar to travel to completely depower our largest kite when you flag out. Remove the standard 10m top section of flying line and 12m lines are ideal for schools to teach with and for foil racing. 8m line extensions available as an accessory for those wanting 20m lines for wave riding or tighter kite loops.
