Cross Kites Boarder Trainer Kite

Cross Kites Boarder Trainer Kite

Stock is low – Take a look at the Crosskites Air with additional bar which is the same as the Crosskites boarder

Cross Kites are the younger sister of kitesurf company Peter Lynn and use a lot of the materials and technology of their older sibling. This has meant that the Cross Kites products are of very high quality but at exceptionally competitive prices. We don’t think there are any products on the market which come close to matching them.

The Cross Kites board is the ideal entry level kite, for kids or adults a like. It can be used as a first kite and is a good first step for entering into the other kite related sports (kitesurfing, kite landboarding & kite buggying) as the control is the same.

They’re also great fun to use for all the family.

The kites are measured in a different way to other power kites as the size refers to the wing span rather than the overall surface area. Full details can be found below.

 

What Cross Kites have to say

The Cross Kites Boarder trainer is designed as the ultimate trainer for learning the basics of Kitesurfing, Snow Kiting or Kite Landboarding.

Cross Kites Quattro Power Kite

Cross Kites Quattro Power Kite

We’ve started using the Cross Kites Quattro in 2018 and have been really impressed with them. The build quality, materials and how they fly are comparable to much more expensive kites on the market. Cross Kites are the sister company of Peter Lynn which is a premium brand, so a lot of the technology & know how has also been carried over. They’re also built in the same factory and have the same distributor so the warranty is really good.

The Cross Quattro really is fantastic value for money, there’s nothing on the market which offers the quality this does for anywhere near the same price.

The Quattro uses the same Vector lines as the Peter Lynn range which have a high breaking strain of 200 / 100kg (front / back lines), which aren’t far off the strength of full kitesurfing lines!

Wind Range

Although all the kites will fly in next to no wind (4mph +) the weight of the user will have the biggest impact on how strong they can be used up to. Below is the suggested wing range but the age and weight does need to be taken into consideration.

The kites are aimed at children over 14 years old but younger children could use them with supervision. However, the Cross Kites Boarder would be a better choice

1.5m – 4 – 26mph

2.5m – 4 – 4 – 24mph

3.5m – 4 – 22mph

4.5m – 4 – 22mph

Kite Buggy & Landboard

The Cross Kites Quattro Power Kite can be used for static flying but is equally capable for kite buggying or kite landboarding. The 2.5, 3.5 or 4.5m would be best as these sports do require a little more power.

 

The kites come ready to fly with lines, kite killers (safety system), handles and kite.

The colour is fixed for each of the sizes.

 

What Cross Kites say….

The Cross Kites Quattro is one of the easiest ways to get into the great sport of 4-line powerkiting. The simple 4-line set up has all the characteristics and control of a more serious power kite yet can still be used by the whole family.

The kite has a lot of pulling power when needed but also gives you a blend of easy kite control, fun and stability.

Really easy and fun kite to fly at the beach with your friends and family. The control handles are easy to use and the included kite killer safety system makes learning in stronger winds a breeze. Launches instantly and is super easy to fly. Fast stable controls with quad lines that makes it easy to land and reverse launch by yourself.
