Aero V2Article number: VMPL60 High performance racing foil
The Aero v2 is a closed cell depower foil that is faster on every tack and it allows you to ride at unreal speeds and angles. It fills up quicker and accelerates faster. It launches effortlessly and gets you up to speed easier than ever before. The Aero v2 is designed to be the ultimate super GT amongst race kites. It combines blistering pace and acceleration with rider oriented responsiveness, dynamic handling, and unmatched stability. The Aero is built to open the door to a new level of engagement between rider and wing.

Tech Specs Aero V2
Innovative panel shaping
A smooth leading edge for better aerodynamicsInnovative panel shaping
To truly think outside the box in kite design, one has to think outside of the possibilities that specialised professional CAD applications for designing kites and paraglider canopies offer. At Peter Lynn we recognise that, like in motorsports, aerodynamics largely determine performance. This is why we put a lot of effort into reducing turbulence and unwanted drag. In the Aero this translates into the specially shaped panels in the Leading edge. Traditionally each panel is a straight piece of fabric but since it’s impossible to bend a flat surface in cord as well as in span without creating creases and/or folds, our designer has come up with a combination of two pre-shaped panels that allow the top-skin to bulge freely to form a smooth, aerodynamically advanced leading edge. This construction is further complimented with a curved seam that prevents creasing in the area where the LE panels connect to the main canopy panels.
Clever internal design
For a completely stable wingClever internal design
The inside of the kite is designed to maximize dimensional stability and to reduce the need for bridle points. The tension straps running along the bottom skin is a technical detail borrowed from the Twinskin/Arc design and ensures proper bulging of the bottom skin while keeping the tension in check. The clever D and H Ribs allow for evenly spaced out bridle points and create a very rigid frame. Strategically placed cross vents ensure fast inflation and even pressure throughout the wing.
High Aspect Ratio, high cell count
For a very thin and slick wingHigh Aspect Ratio, high cell count
The high number of cells ensure the wings dimensional stability and prevents deforming of the designed shape. The High Aspect ratio makes the kite cut upwind like a knife and allows for high flying speeds. Each cell has its own aspect ratio to make the wing as efficient as possible and create a highly dimensionally stable wing.
Reinforced bridle points
For maximum strengthReinforced bridle points
As the A bridles get to endure the highest stresses, the bridle tabs for the A row are reinforced with a double stitched Dacron patch for strength. The B and C rows are reinforced with a lightweight round nylon patch to save overall weight.
Optimized & minimal bridle
Bridle stress lowered for best performanceOptimized & minimal bridle
The Internal construction allows for evenly spaced out bridle points which in turn allow for a drastic reduction in overall bridle length. As the B and C rows have less stress to endure our designer has tuned each individual line to be as thin and light weight as possible. The bridle itself is constructed out of the highest grade Liros® DC 100% Dyneema® lines.
Efficient trailing edge
For minimum turbulenceEfficient trailing edge
To minimize turbulence along the Trailing edge of the kite, mini ribs have been placed between the ribs. These ribs have been sewn onto a seam that curves into the seam of the adjacent rib, effectively removing a potential weak spot and ensuring a strong construction. To make optimum use of the mini ribs, the Brake bridle point have been moved forward to create a flap, this flap allows you to position the kite with more precision, vastly improving the kite’s downwind performance.
Ronstan® Orbit pulleys
High quality pulleys to take on heavy loadsRonstan® Orbit pulleys
The Aero’s speed system is constructed with 2×2 Ronstan® Orbit pulleys, these high quality pulleys weigh only 9grams and allow for loads up to 250Kg. And since the line goes through the bearing it will always stay connected even in the rare case the pulley gets damaged.
