JN WILD THING REVIVAL

The Wild Thing series is now in its sixth incarnation after almost a decade of development and has always been JN's most modern and innovative kite. It's an open C shape, versatile performance kite with a focus on large wind range, direct steering and bags of punchy accessible power.

Technical:

Five strut mid-aspect open C design - This gives the handling characteristics of a C shaped kite, with the extended windrange, stability and relaunch of an SLE.

Four line with optional 5th line - JN allow you to choose your control system, rather than have it dictated to you! The kite flies perfectly on 4 lines, flagging to either a single or both front lines. If you prefer the security of 5 lines, or are just used to that system, all kites ship with a noseline. We find this aids deep water light wind relaunch in larger sizes.

High end manufacturing - Double taped seams, Kevlar reinforcement, the best available canopy fabric and new stiffer dacron all build an extremely robust kite, designed to last. A stitched in graphic design saves on added weight that a screen print would cause.



Perfect Round Arc shape LE
- The leading edge is made from minimal segments and is completely rounded which is achieved with clever cutting methods. This makes it lighter, stiffer, more robust and FAR more aerodynamic.


Single point inflation - a proven external, easy to maintain system.

Three turning speed options - With three wing tip steering hang points, you can slow the kite down to make it more suitable for park and pop wakestyle. Coupled with the lockable pulleys this is very effective.

Light wind specific shape - in 14m and 16.5m - The two larger sizes bring unique features to the range for light wind use, including a thinner leading edge and frankly massive wing tips to keep the turning speed perky. The idea was to make a fun light wind kite, whihc is not 100% race focused.

Characteristics:

Medium bar pressure and very lively, intuitive steering
High stability and downwind drift for waveriding and unhooked.
Steady power in the turn, which is very useful for onshore wave riding.
Tight canopy with zero flapping, and simple reverse relaunch.
