2010 Liquid Force kitesurfing

Liquid Force 2013

The Liquid Force range continues to develop with some awesome products again this year. Great looking kites with some tweaks and improvements on last years designs and other fully re-designed models plus a completely new board range with super lightweight construction and amazing surfboards.

Have a read through all the information below or come and check out the products at the centre and try them out.

Kites: Envy, NRG and Hifi X

For 2013 Liquid Force have 3 kites in their range, the Envy, NRG and Hifi X. All are built using the same materials and the solid construction Liquid Force are known for, the toughest and most durable kites out there. They are available kite only or complete with the 2013 CPR bar and lines and Max Flow pump.

Envy


The Envy is the all round kite in the 2013 Liquid Force line up that is brilliant in all conditons and for a wide range of kitesurfers, we have chosen to use it in the school for the last 4 years as it is very easy to use and perfect as a beginner kite but you will also see the likes of pro riders Brandon Sheid, James Boulding and Jason Slezak using it for wakestyle and wave riding.

The Envy is super stable and very solid in the sky making, it has smooth depower, easy water re-launch and good direct feel through the bar.

We have 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10.5 and 12m kites available for demo

NRG

The NRG is the next step up from the Envy in the 2013 line up, it is high aspect  with an open shape and has a thin efficient profile, these features produce loads of power and allow the NRG to fly upwind, create enormous jumps and serious hang time……the floatiest kite we have ever used!! For 2013 it has been given a complete redesign and is a huge improvement over the 2012 kite, it is higher aspect and has more swept back wingtips, also now has a direct back line which really aids its turning speed and gives it a much more direct feel, plus also improving the water relaunch.

Due to its amazing power and efficiency the NRG is available in 14 and 16m sizes and called in the NRG Lightbreeze which is flatter and higher aspect, also has a thinner, even more efficient and fast profile plus more open shape to create maxiumum power.

If you have been kitesurfing for a year or two and looking for a kite with more performance or like to jump, we seriously suggest you try the NRG!

We have an 8, 10 and 14m available to demo

Hifi X

The Liquid Force Hifi X is the performance C kite in the range and the evolution of the Nirvana and legendary Hifi Comp. Completely re-deisnged for 2013 the Hifi X has gone back to its hardcore roots…………more aggresive, higher performance and more extreme!

This brand new design is higher aspect, thinner leading edge and straighter trailing edge, these features make the Hifi X more efficient and quicker through the air producing bigger jumps and kiteloops as well as making it go upwind even further than before.

The wide wingtips and direct attachments create responsive and quick turning with the 5th line keeping the centre of the kite stable and solid throughout its flight, making it fantastic for wakestyle and strong winds.

The diamond windtips give the Hifi X a surprising amount of depower, far more than other C kites on the market and not far off a bridled SLE kite.

After using this kite we loved the fact that it had been taken back to the extreme characteristics of the original Hifi Comp, but we were very surprised that the stability is also massively improved, its great! More performance and more stability!

The Hifi X has 3 settings on both the front and back lines attachments to give increse the turing speed and bar pressure or set the kie up to sit further forward in the window for freestyle or sit back for waketstyle.

If you are looking for a high performance freestyle and wakesyle kite that excells when kitelooping and jumping with direct and solid feel, the Hifi X is the kite for you.

2013 Liquid Force CPR bar and lines

New for 2013 is the awesome front line swivel, it uses ceramic bearings which makes it extremely smooth and does not clog up or rust. It continues to use the very simple and safe CPR release system and front line flag out safety. The bar ends are similar to the 2012 bar with soft EVA  bar end floats and ergonmic grip. The LF bar is also very light and a nice thickness giving a great feel in your hands.

 Kites

2012 Liquid Force Envy

The Envy is the all round kite in the Liquid Force range and it has been designed as ‘Delta Hybrid’. Julien Fillion has taken the original Delta shape designs and improved on them to go ‘Beyond Delta’, removing the problems the initial designs had. The kite is designed to suit every rider, it has massive amounts of continual depower, simply and trustworthy bridle and the usual bomb proof liquid force construction using the best materials on the market – Tejin. I believe still the only brand to have superior reinforced seams- glued triple stitched and have internal reinforced strips along the whole leading edge. Liquid Force keeps you out of the repair shop and in the water!

The Envy has power on tap but is manageable, due to the Delta profile, it has great low end but due to the design, great depower also. The Envy blends the popular benefits of the Delta type kites but adds the proven *LF Diamond Wingtips and USB- 3.0 Bridle system to improve them further. The Envy works with a 3 strut configuration and inflatable wing tips, the reduction of the struts reduces the overall weight by a whole pound (0.5kg) in the 12m size, this is really noticeable when flying as the kite is far more reactive and quicker through the sky.  The reduction of the struts reduces back stall to a minimum in light winds, encourages better drifting and offers superior stability, it is also faster to in/deflate. The reduction of weight is completely from removing the struts but has meant the construction has not suffered from the ‘diet’.

The three strut design was developed around stability and structure. The profile of the kite means that just three struts and the inflated wing tips keep it solid in the sky and when relaunching, even in waves (videos to follow)!

*LF Diamond wingtips- The design has been tested on all the Liquid Force products for the past five years and they have been a massive success. They take the swept wing tip technology allowing forwards tilt and therefore maximum depower but keep the square wide ends giving fast turning speed, solid structure and best of all- reducing the chance of damaging the kite in slams. This is because the whole leading edge touches the water at the same time during a crash (like a C kite), all the way to the wing tips, therefore spreading the load evenly and not causing any deformation and excess tension in the trailing edge, which is what causes kites to tear in half. Your average swept wing tip kite rolls all the way to the wing tips during a crash completely deforming the kite and causing massive amounts of tension in the trailing edge and all too often, large repairs!

The diamond wingtips allows immediate response due to the big square wing tips but also offers constant pulland power through the turns.

The Envy is an ‘All Terrain Kite’ aimed at every level of rider.

Compared to the 2010 and 2011 models, the 2012 Envy has a new bridle s which no longer meets in the centre and has slightly further swept wingtip, this has improved the re-launch and also given the kite a little more depower. The struts are now thinner to increase the efficiency of the kite through the sky adding to its performance and light wind capabilities. For 2012 the Envy is once again going to be used in our school due to its ease of use, direct feel, smooth turning and toughest construction available. It is also the kite of choice of a couple of our instructors.

Sizes: 5, 7, 9, 12, 15m

Liquid Force 2012 Nirvana

The 2012 Liquid Force Nirvana has taken all the good points from the  Hi Fi Comp and improved it even further to produce the ultimate high depower C kite.


The Nirvana is considered a C ‘Hybrid’, it has the performance of any C kite on the market but has the ease of relaunch, safety and high depower of almost any SLE.

Due to the technology and  designs taken from the Envy and NRG, the Nirvana will relaunch like any SLE, just pull a back line and it will pivot from the water and launch up from the edge of the window.  

Multiple attachment points – The Nirvana continues the technology taken from the Hifi comp in which multiple attachment points were available. It boasts 3 for the front lines and 2 at the rear to set the kite up to perform exactly how the rider wished. It can be switched from a freestyle kiteloop beast to a hardcore grunty wakestyle machine in seconds. With options for fast and slow turning and high or low depower to suit any rider.

 Proven diamond wingtips - 

*LF Diamond wingtips- Just like the Envy, the Nirvana has continued the much trusted Diamond wingtip design -The design has been tested on all the Liquid Force products for the past five years and they have been a massive success. They take the swept wing tip technology allowing forwards tilt and therefore maximum depower but keep the square wide ends giving fast turning speed, solid structure and best of all- reducing the chance of damaging the kite in slams. This is because the whole leading edge touches the water at the same time during a crash, all the way to the wing tips, therefore spreading the load evenly and not causing any deformation and excess tension in the trailing edge, which is what causes kites to tear in half. Your average swept wing tip kite rolls all the way to the wing tips during a crash completely deforming the kite and causing massive amounts of tension in the trailing edge and all too often, large repairs!

These wingtips allow the Nirvana the massive amounts of depower it has but still remains responsive.We have yet to find another kite with such direct ‘C’ kite feel and feedback but also this amount of depower.

Compared to the Hifi Comp the Nirvana has even deeper wingtips to further increase the turning speed. Battens have also been added to the wingtips which keep the kite solid and ultra responsive in the sky. This is particulary beneficial in the 7m as it will stop the super thin leading edge from bending during kiteloops or aggressive turns, the Hifi had to be pumped to seriously high pressure to stop this – a great improvement!

5 strut C kite structure

The Nirvana boasts a C kite shape so needs the 5 struts to hold its structure solid and give it that direct feel and excellent performance. In 2011 the Hifi Comp had only 4 struts and it was little poor compared to the 2010, we stuck with our 2010 kite for 2 years. The solid structure is a proven platform for constant pull and pop, specifically for freestyle and wake style manoeuvres. The struts are super thin to minimise drag and weight but maximise the kite speed through the air. Comapred to the Hifi the 2nd and 4th struts have been moved a little closer to the wingtips to reduce any fluttering and leave a large clean area in the centre of the kite to maximise the power.

Thin leading edge/ deep canopy

The latest designs in performance kites see the LE become thinner and thinner. The reason being that this allows them to cut through the air more easily, minimising drag and creating a fast and responsive kite. This increases the height of jumps and causes the kite to come out of kite loops much faster. The Nirvana is no exception and has taken it to a new level. The leading edge is really narrrow for maximum performance.

Having a thin LE and efficient kite means the design can allow a slightly deeper canopy for more grunty pull similar to the Envy. Usually this would slow the kite down too much because of the excess drag from the air running over the extra canopy material (from being deeper) but the kite is already so efficient it doesn’t affect it in any way. The Nirvana is grunty but aggressively quick through the sky. You may see that other kite brands are starting to replicate this idea on their own designs to get the great low end the Hi Fi Comp has offered over the past few years.

USB 2.0 5th Line Bridle

The Nirvana flies on 5 lines. It uses a 5th line bridle to spread the load  equally across the leading edge to maximise stability..It holds the kites in a solid C structure and allows no deformation. The 5th line has the same attachment on the CPR bar as the two front lines, so when trimmed to depower, all 3 lines stay the same tension from the bar, keeping the kite the correct shape all of the time. The 5th line can be leashed to for added safety if the user wishes. If the wind is extremely light you also have the added benifit of being able to use it to aid the water re-launch.

Nuke proof construction - The Nirvana possesses the same nuke proof construction as the whole Liquid Force range with triple stitching and double glued seems, Tejin rip stop canopy and reinforced segments along with buffers along the LE. The canopy has been designed tested and redesigned so as to minimise stress on any segment of the kite and spreading the force from an impact with the water or land. This massively reduces the risk of the kite tearing from any point along the canopy whether in a wave or from an impact. Its a kite designed for competitions and competition riders who practice tricks and abuse their kites. This is not a kite you are likely to find in two pieces!

Thomas Alsbirks winter job is to megaloop the prototypes into the water to find areas of weakness and improve on them until the final product is faultless. Liquid Force have designed this product so that it will continually keep you on the water rather than in the repair shop!

Cleanest bar ever

The Hi Fi Comp uses the same CPR bar as the NRG and Envy but with the 5th line set up. Please see details below.

Once again Julien Fillion has produced a market leading design to out perform any other performance kite on the market but with far superior ease of use and progression available.

Thomas, Tristan and Sam’s favourite kite!

Liquid Force 2012 NRG & NRG Light Breeze

High aspect open shape and thin leading edge (similar to the Nirvana) make the NRG kite as efficient as possible and the profile has been designed better low end pull and maximum air speed. The NRG is extremely powerful and easily the  most powerful kite LF have ever made ! 

This 2012 Liquid Force NRG  has massive amounts of constant depower and has a huge wind range, larger than the Envy or previous Havoc model.

The NRG is an open canopy shaped performance SLE. It has a flatter section in the middle for more pull and power and relatively high aspect ratio giving it amazing up wind ability and huge jumps. As well as launching you into orbit the flat, efficient shape also produces fantastic hangtime as you float back to earth softly.

The NRG uses the new 3.1 USB bridle which differs from the 2.0 bridle used on eh Envy and Havoc  as it has separate front and back bridles giving maximum depower  and stability whilst still producing a great feel through the bar.

4 Strut  performance profile

The 2012 NRG has no centre strut and spreads the other 4 accordingly along the canopy for a strong solid structure. The advantage of this new design is a lighter kite with faster response from bar input, increased lift, more low end power with a cleaner feel and smoother air flow across the main wind catchment area of the kite – the centre. This cleaner free flow of air over the kites profile will increase performance with more hangtime, and better upwind capabilities, not to mention a lighter feel of the kite and more responsive and quicker turning.


NRG Lightbreeze 

Due to the efficient profile and amazing power of the NRG, it is perfect as a lightwind specific kite. The Lightbreeze is offered in 14 and 16m sizes and has a few tweeks to further improve the lightwind performance. Firstly the canopy shape is slightly flatter and higher aspect to increase the projected area and lift. The leading edge diameter and profile depth have been reduced to further increase the efficiency of the wing for faster airspeed and upwind ability, as well as this these changes the two centre struts have been moved closer to the wingtips to maximise the centre section of the canopy.

*LF Diamond wingtips- Just like the Envy and Nirvana, the NRG has continued the much trusted Diamond wingtip design -The design has been tested on all the Liquid Force products for the past two years and they have been a massive success. They take the swept wing tip technology allowing forwards tilt and therefore maximum depower but keep the square wide ends giving fast turning speed, solid structure and best of all- reducing the chance of damaging the kite in slams. This is because the whole leading edge touches the water at the same time during a crash (like a C kite), all the way to the wing tips, therefore spreading the load evenly and not causing an deformation and excess tension in the trailing edge, which is what causes kites to tear in half. Your average swept wing tip kite rolls all the way to the wing tips during a crash completely deforming the kite and causing massive amounts of tension in the trailing edge and all too often, large repairs!

These wingtips allow the NRG the massive amounts of depower it has but still remains responsive.

Nuke proof construction

The NRG possesses the same nuke proof construction as the whole Liquid Force range with triple stitching and double glued seems, Tejin rip stop canopy and reinforced segments along with buffers along the LE. You will rarely; if ever see a broken Liquid Force kite on your beach!


Cleanest bar ever

The NRG uses the same CPR bar as the Nirvana and Envy with the 4 line set up. Please see details below.

2012 CPR Bar system

CPR – Centreline push release system

The CPR is Liquid Forces latest and greatest design. The premium performance, ultimate in safety and unmatched in style control system.

The CPR is a brand new control system designed around a breakthrough centre line push release safety system. The release allows riders an instant and effortless safety release of the kite, with either hand from the front or back of the bar to either the 100% depower flag line or 90% depower mainline leash option.

While the primary focus on this new system is on the safety and release advancements, the entire bar has been redesigned and improved.

100% de-power flag line

The LF CPR control system has a 100% depower flag line leash attachment option. When hooked to the flag line and the bar or CPR are released, the kite will completely depower with the riders leash attached to the flag line. This will leave them connected to only one front line, completely flagging and de-powering the kite. If it’s the Hi Fi Comp, this will be the 5th line rather than the front line. The front line comes down through the bar and can be leashed to on the metal ring shown in the right picture. The flag line (which runs through the bar and to the front or 5th line) can be completely removed at the riders will. A simple procedure and a replacement webbing loop comes as standard to attached to the front line or leash line about the bar instead. Only expert riders may prefer this if they are leashing to suicide or 90% depower mainline option. This will keep the bar that tiny bit cleaner- always striving for perfection.

Below the bar de-power cleat

The power adjustment mainline runs through a 3d Moulded cleat, moulded into the CPR Chicken Loop. This allows effortless adjustment of the mainline and an extreme amount of de-power, always within reach below the bar, moulded cleanly right into the chicken loop surface. The cleat is stainless steel for maximum life spane but is replaceable and it has sharp enough teeth to not allow the mainline to slip. The mainline is thinner and tougher than 2008 and 2009 so as to allow the bar to run more smoothly up and down even when the bar is pulled in for extreme turning. This will massively increase the life span of the main line.

Centre Line Push Release

The LF CPR Release is designed for ultimate safety and simplicity, allowing a rider to release the kite with either hand from front or back of the bar, always the same either side. The release is out of the way for unhooking and hooking back in without any accidental releases! Probably the simplest and most efficient release ever made. It will release with one finger under a load of 800kg but will never go off accidentally.

Non mechanical 100% moulded QR design

The LF CPR is unique in that is has NO MECHANICAL or METAL parts. Each of the quick release parts are moulded plastic and will not rust, seize or corrode and will always function in sand, salt, heat or snow. Being 100% non mechanical means that there are no areas which will suffer from wear or tear and the release will be operate successfully every time.

When the quick release is activated, the chicken loop separates from the bar, and the leash holds either the front line or main line for depower. The chicken loop will stay attached to your harness unless you have removed the donkey dick, in the scenario, most riders without the donkey dick will be leashing ‘suicide’ to the chicken loop and therefore not lose it, but the kite would blow away? Fortunately LF have thought of this scenario and have a few options……

Either, you leash to the suicide and flag line, so it goes to suicide but then flags out safely when the safety is pulled – best of both worlds surely?

Or you leash to the main line but place the leash through the chicken loop so when the chicken loop and bar separate on release, the chicken loop stays hanging on the leash and can be connected back again. This option holds the main line out of the way for hooking back in again as well because the weight of the leash pulls it to one side or below the hook in area.

Or third option, leash to the mainline and allow both to separate but pick up the floating chicken loop when ready to reconnect. The foam on the base of the donkey dick will cause it to float, however this is not an option I would go for!

Quick click CPR release reset

Designed to be just as easy and reliable to reset as to release, even from the water. The CPR resets simply by snapping the chicken loop onto the mainline and then pulling the red release piece down until it clicks. Done!

Colour coded 3d Moulded Eva Grip

More comfortable than ever with bold colour coded grip. The bar grip is very easy to see the right / left side of the bar while flying and even when getting tumbled underwater. You always know which end of the bar to grab even in bright silhouette sunlight.

Auto indexed chicken loop

This allows a stiff and constant alignment of the chicken loop when unhooking / hooking back in. The loop does not flop around and is always aligned correctly with the bar. No need to look to unhook or re-hook. The chicken loop is also much larger than most making this process even easier.

The size of the loop can be adjusted and readjusted whenever necessary with a simple movement of 3 screws. The donkey dick can be removed and reattached with one screw. No need to cut it off.

The bar comes with standard 23m Dyneema lines with a waxy plastic type coating to prolong the life span. This isn’t sticky so doesn’t attract sand and dirt. The end of the lines are sleeved as usuall but just as in 2009 also have 4 inch extensions made of tough material so the sleeving does not wear through and the lines are not useless after just a few months.

Compared to the 2010 and 2011 CPR bars the floats are now integrated into the bar as part of the bar end giving the bar soft ends. The bar is a also a really great ergonomic shape as the back of the bar has raised section for you fingers to sit in. The bar is slimmed down and is similar diameter to the 2010 bar.

Due to much less base plate material the bindings are ultra light weight, they are now only the weight of a light running trainer. They dont make a board any heavier than straps do! The new foam used under foot absorbs pressure, when a golf ball is thrown at the sole it does not bounce back it stops dead, imagine that absorbancy on your landings…….amazing! There are no longer insert holes but just one grove with teeth for nearly unlimited choice of stance angle. Inside the boot the J bars at the ankle have increased further in size for a super tight fit to completely eliminate heel lift.
