The Escape is built for ambitious and experienced riders who seek to amp up their riding to more extreme levels.
The V5 Escape is a hard poppin’, big boostin’ freestyle machine that combines the best traits of multiple LEI design shapes into one.
The result is a modern C-shape design that delivers its explosive power in a smooth and controllable way and offers performance for both hooked & unhooked freestyle tricks.
Its deep profile gives the kite a lot of grunt without sacrificing the upwind performance. This ensures you can stay in the competition box to perform more tricks during your heat.
To show off the Escapes performance, we’ve chosen the 2016 Red Bull King of the Air competition in South Africa for the Escapes first public appearance.
It was at the KOTA that Willem van der Meij put the kite through its passes and showed the world that the V5 Escape jumps massive and loops like a rollercoaster.
Its C-shaped design gives it the ideal freestyle and wakestyle performing profile. Completing the package with great line slack, explosive pop, great hang time and soft landings, makes the Escape V5 the ultimate freestyle machine that can pull you through some serious megaloops
Solid power through turns, absence of backstall and an intuitive & responsive feel make the Escape an excellent choice for the competing rider.
The Escape can handle a lot of wind and can be pushed in its higher wind range by the expert hands.
Dacron reinforcement patches for the bridle attachment points are stitched inside leading edge.

To distribute the forces on the canopy evenly, the panels have been specially designed to mitigate any potential stretch.
To prevent line stretch negatively influencing the kites characteristics, the pigtails are adjustable.
