We have developed and evolved our entire range of kites to suit all riders desires with three different models because we believe we can make kiteboarding accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
The shape and performance of the Escape has evolved impressively over the last years making it the kite of choice for riders who seek top performance for freestyle, wakestyle and freeride. We develop with an open mind, which results in trying different techniques and stepping aside from accepted or assumed techniques to discover new possibilities. The prototypes are used by a wide range of riders and in widely diverse conditions to see how the kite performs in real life situations.
Peter Lynn Kiteboarding came to market with its kiteboarding kites about 8 years ago. Before releasing the first generation of these kites, years of development took place, starting from the ground up to develop our own designed kites. These years of development prior to the release of the first generation are essential for the development in later generations of the kites.
By using multiple triangular shaped segments a smooth and clean transition between leading edge and canopy is created. This improves the airflow and results in better overall performance. Expect explosive pop and lots of grunt for unhooked moves, excellent vertical boost, great line slack for unhooked tricks and highly responsive & direct steering.
Improved leading edge
Improved size specific design
The most thrilling incarnation of Escape yet delivers a riding experience that feels intuitive and irresistibly dynamic. Composed, controlled yet filled with raw athleticism, the Escape brings back the excitement of exploring our favourite sport regardless of your skills.
To accomplish maximum performance across the entire range of sizes we do not believe in scaling up or down. That is why each individual size has its very own design specifics and Aspect Ratio, this ensures optimal performance in each size as well as synergized handling, feel and balance across the range.
To ensure that everyone can get exactly the quiver they need we have added some sizes. To accommodate a large variety of riders in varying conditions we have further expanded the range of available sizes. No matter your body weight, riding style and whatever wind strength is prevalent on your local spot, we have got the right sized kite for you!
Broader size range
Improved canopy shape design
The kites large middle section provides the grunt and boost you need to throw even the most radical moves. At the same time, the deep profile maintains the kites upwind ability to help you stay in the competition box or close to your beer cooler.
Get out sooner and hold on longer. The big strut-less centre panel of the canopy gives you the grunt and stability to fly in a wide range of conditions.
The use of Dacron has been reduced over the past years. This relatively heavy, non flexible material is only used in specific areas on the wingtips and is now of a higher quality. The trailing edge is free of Dacron in the Escape V7.
Improved Dacron Quality
Performance enhancing bridle
All this power is kept in close control by a short, pulley-less bridle that makes the kite highly responsive and very precise. This helps you to position the kite exactly where you need it to get maximum performance the second you need it.
For a solid bar feel and direct kite feedback, ensuring maximum control no matter the conditions.
To guarantee the same crisp handling across the line, the bigger sizes now feature a thinner, lighter leading edge which also improves low-end performance. Bigger sizes turn much quicker now and all sizes generate more power for size.
