NOTUS AIR 2016-2017 The 2016-2017 Notus AIR kite is the brand new kite from the R&D department of ZEEKO. The hydrofoil concept is booming, ZEEKO, pioneer in the Carbon & Alloy hydrofoil building, introduce a new kite 100% hydrofoil dedicated. This new ride experience, also known as 'riding on a flying carpet', uses a new kind of board allowing to ride in very light winds (less than 10knots) and to ride at very high speed on the water. Also, riding in super light wind requires to develop kites as lights as a feather and designed to have a very wide wind window. The Notus AIR is borned. 1 single Strut, reinforcements with the lightest weight, profile designed to give the best glide in the air. The kite is optimized to ride with or without 8m extension lines, perfect for very light wind experiences. Riding with 8m extension lines gives as power as riding with a 3m² bigger kite. The Notus AIR is the perfect kite for freeriding with a hydrofoil.

TECHNOLOGY ONE PUMP INFLATION, SINGLE STRUT KITE: Stability in light wind Best Upwind ability / Light weight compromise

HYPER LEADING EDGE SEGMENTATION: More rigidity, more reactivity, less drag

REDUCED LEADING EDGE DIAMETER: Light kite, less drag, wider wind window

HIGH ASPECT RATIO: More control at high speed, best upwind ability, less drag

MODERN C-SHAPE ARC: greater responsiveness, more turning speed

HYPER CONCAVE TRAILING EDGE: Less drag and fluttering during turns Better upwind ability, better relaunching

100% DOUBLE RIPSTOP SPI CLOTH CANOPY: Light kite

AUTO ADAPTATIVE BRIDLE SYSTEM: Huge depower, Light bar pressure

ONWARD CENTER OF EFFORT: Huge depower, greater responsiveness, better upwind ability

BACKWARD BACK BRIDLE: Light bar pressure, better turning speed, reverse relaunching


TECHNOLOGY BRIDLE SYSTEM : NEW LOW FRICTION RINGS

DOUBLE RIPSTOP TEIJIN Starting from 2016, we use on all our kites the Double Ripstop Teijin cloth ADVANTAGES - 30% more tear resistant —> stronger kite - Improved rigidity —> more responsive kite - Improved durability —> longer lifespan The weight of the kite is not increased The performance in light wind unchanged
