LTE CANOPY LTE CANOPY After extensive Research & Development over 7 years we are finally happy with our new canopy and have applied it to our production. This new canopy comes with double ripstop materials to provide best tear-resistance and minimal stretch. This results in bulletproof kites and significantly less damage which gives you more time on the water! This canopy sets a new benchmark in dynamic performance. It gives a very lively and direct character to the kite.Â Beside this, we focussed on durability, as we want our kites
to not just last forever, but also to perform perfectly forever, so we pushed the durability to the next level. To achieve this goal in such an extreme sports environment with loads of water and UV punishment we decided to use two steps of coating in our production. First, the ripstop yarn gets coated before actually creating the cloth. In the end the whole cloth gets coated again. The result is a bulletproof material which performs perfectly when brand new all the way down the long term road. Even if the cloth coating is destroyed by serious abrasion, the rip stop yarn is still working and protects the cloth from ripping. A revolution from the Gaastra factory.
