The Flexifoil Hadlow ID comes with increased depower, easier relaunch and phenomenal performance in freestyle, freeriding and wave riding making the ID the tool to grow and be a part of the HADLOW movement from intermediate to pro riders alike.
The Flexifoil Hadlow ID has a solid feel great for Freestyle, but also be a kite that you can jump on at almost any level. Equipped with a bridle supported leading edge this kite can boost, de-power for wave or free-riding but still create enough pop for Wakestyle tricks. Even if you are just learning to jump this kite will suit you, easily covering intermediate through to Pro.
The HADLOW ID presents a combined package of performance and accessibility. Slashed wing-tips and an optimised leading edge give you easier relaunch. You don’t need to fear putting this kite in the water, allowing you to push harder and faster.
In the sky, bar pressure gives you knowledge of where the kite is, with direct un-twitchy control even when de-powered. If it gets too much, the ID lets you back off and control the pace.
Freestyle demands consistent and strong pop and the ID gives you this in bucket-loads with post-pop slack lining to ease your handle passes. Stability combined with exceptional speed mean you’ve got the best of both worlds in your progression right up to Aaron’s own standards.
The ID is versatile across all conditions, soaking up gusts to give you consistent drive and with substantial depower from the bar, plus with additional depowered bridle settings you have a kite that truly earns two places in your quiver.
4 Strut Design
Reduces weight, with thinner rib struts further adding to the speed of the kite.
Full Supporting Bridle
Fully supportive bridle creating better stability and control under extreme loads (during loops or hard pops). LE bridle and toggle points allow for zero tube rotation and distortion. The bridle on the whole gives plenty of depower with a further second “depower” setting for extreme conditions. Ride with more grunt and constant pull or more depower and forward speed.
Ultra-Thin Leading Edge Tube
Increases the speed through the window and therefore the manoeuverability of the kite. A thin diameter adds speed into the turn and gives a fast, more dynamic grunt but with more diameter than the
HADLOW PRO, relaunch is no
Near identical leading and trailing edge curves to the HADLOW PRO C-kite create a true C-kite feel with HADLOW PRO levels of performance. Many other kites claim a C-kite feel but no other kite has such deep-set roots in a strong lineage of C-kites.
The ID’s unique and purpose built aerofoil tames the aggressive performance of the HADLOW PRO to an accessible level with more direct handling.
Filleted Dacron Cage
Creates a truer aerofoil by reducing focal stress on rib to LE junction, meaning a smoother, more direct flight.
Feedback and Control
The ID’s unique bridle and aerofoil combine to give slightly higher bar pressure than the HADLOW PRO that remains consistent even when depowered, giving you confident knowledge of where the kite is and what it’s doing.
Balance Driving Canopy
Reduces stall after loops allowing for better hook-ups, but creates a completely neutral stall giving great balance and stability after a pass without having to drive the sail forward.
Taking geometry from the world’s most hardcore C-Kite, the Hadlow ID keeps the profiles aligned for optimal power distribution down through the front toggles giving a true C-Kite feel.
Slash cut, heavily tapered tips distribute load across the whole tube, allowing for a thinner tip and creating sharper, faster turns as well as easing relaunch.
Throughout the sail provide an aerodynamically efficient and strong stitch across the entire kite.
A triple ply trailing edge reduces aerodynamic flutter offering superb stability and a consistent drive.
Dacron® front and rear attachment points ensures the load is spread evenly through the kite. Dacron® removed from the middle of the wingtip keeps the weight of the kite to a minimum and a slimmed down Dacron® cage keeps the kite light whilst still retaining strength.
Upgraded flying line
The new AH PRO kites’ explosive performance creates a high
peak load on the flying lines. To withstand this power, the flying
lines have been upgraded to 270kg (from 250kg). The line
lengths are exactly the same as Aaron uses. 22m
Standard Flexifoil Features:
EZ Single-Point Inflation
As with all Flexifoil kitesurfing products, the EZ single-point inflation system increases the speed of kite setup getting you out on the water in less time.
Wingtip Pump Valve
This gives you a quick and simple pack down by dumping all air out of the bladders as the kite is rolled up.
Toughened and flexible battens are sewn into the trailing edge near the wingtips. Reinforced with Dacron, they create a stiffer trailing edge and a clean release for turbulent air passing over the wingtip to reduce drag and provide an increased turn speed.
The connection between the struts and the leading edge tube has been completely remodelled allowing for millimetre perfect construction, improved strength and increased rigidity in the kite frame.
Reinforced Leading Edge Tube
Reinforced stitching increases the stiffness and strength of the tube. This not only helps soak up a few slams, but also maintains the shape of the aerofoil for a more power-driven experience.
Dacron® front and rear attachment points ensures the load is
spread evenly through the kite. Dacron® cage keeps the kite light
whilst still retaining strength.
