Hook V1

Article number: VKPL46 Performance freeride | Big air
Designed to combine rider comfort with outrageous performance, we made this new kite especially for the rider that’s been around and has seen it all. The Hook is built for those who are looking for smooth airtime more than anything else. Smooth power build-up and upwind ability, big air and buttery landings. Everything you need for epic sessions all year round.
The Hook is dedicated to boost big and scream upwind. It offers the airtime you need to throw every trick in the book and put you down smoothly. Its moderate bar pressure, which is easy on the arms and body, allows you to stay out longer. It combines exhilarating capability with rider focussed handling and usability into a laid back package that is always ready for more.

5-Strut high Aspect Ratio
Shape designed to boost you to the moon
5-Strut high Aspect Ratio 5-Strut high Aspect Ratio
The Hook has been designed with a lightweight 5-strut construction, built for massive hangtime, speed and upwind capabilities. Also, high Aspect Ratio increases the aerodynamics of the wing, and helps your landing by gently placing you on the water, rather than letting you crash to the ground. Buttery landings are a must if you’re starting to really push your riding.

Specially shaped panel layout
Triangular segments to improve airflow

If you look closely at the leading edge you will see some triangles. These multiple triangular shaped segments create a smooth and clean transition between the leading edge and canopy. These segments improve the airflow and result in better overall performance. Also, the triangular segments make it so that the leading edge does not twist and turn. By preventing creasing, stability and flow are increased.

Extremely durable canopy
Only the best materials used to create an exceptional wing

By using a clever combination of the best materials the industry has to offer and the latest construction techniques we’ve created a strong and durable wing. We had in mind to make the materials of the Hook extra durable so that anyone can easily progress with this kite. From trick to trick, the Hook’s canopy will never fail you.

Double stitched multi segment Leading Edge
Extra smooth, extra stiff Leading Edge shape with the bonus of added durability.

Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The leading edge has been reinforced along the entire seam to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding in the waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market.

Clean leading edge
For extra reinforcement

We wanted to make sure that the leading edge would be able to sustain even the hardest of crashes, so that trying all tricks would not result in a split leading edge. All the bridle attachment points are reinforced with Dacron patches that are stitched on the inside of the leading edge to prevent distortion of airflow. Jump higher and higher without worrying about breaking the leading edge apart!
