NOTUS REV 2016 Notus Rev 2016 retains & confirms its ultra versatile program : high performance freestyle / freeride, wave riding & hang time.
After the revolution of 2015 Notus Rev (fusion of our Krush & Notus range to keep only versatile kite), we worked to improve its lifetime and strength : a double ripstop fabric, reinforced struts, but same weight and the kite is more responsive. The 12m has been directed to an optimized light wind practice while other sizes retain their own characteristics.
(Average figure based on a 75kg / 165 pounds rider)
« WHAT’S NEW ? » DOUBLE RIPSTOP TEIJIN
THE 12M BECOMES XLW
In 2016, we use on all our kites the Double Ripstop Teijin cloth
In 2016 the 12m Notus Rev becomes XLW - Xtra Light Wind. The kite was eased at strategic locations for maximum performance and responsiveness in light wind. Clamping modified to increase its responsiveness in light wind
ADVANTAGES - 30% more tear resistant —> kite stronger - Improved rigidity —> more responsive kite - Slow aging
BRIDLE SYSTEM : NEW LOW FRICTION RINGS
The weight of the kite does not increase so far, the performance is unchanged in light wind.

NEW REINFORCEMENTS New polyester reinforcements were placed along transverse struts.

NOTUS REV 2016 - 28 segments
ADVANTAGES : - Greater reactivity : Ideal for side shore waves - More pop unhooked - Less unhooked over sheeting : Ideal for freestyle and unhooked surfing - More stability in surf : the kite drifts ideally in hardcore surf moves
MEDIUM HIGH ASPECT RATIO ADVANTAGES : - Less drag : Best high range - More acceleration, ideal position in the kite window for on-shore waves - More hang time : Big floaty jumps. NOTUS 2014
NOTUS REV 2016
AUTO ADAPTATIVE BRIDLE SYSTEM The bridle tension is automatically adjust depending on your riding style. ADVANTAGES : - More responsive, ideal for surfing and use of the bar in narrow position, even with the big wing sizes. - Best pop when the kite is sheeted in : Easier lines slack for unhooked tricks. - More depower : Ideal for wave riding - Even when the kite is sheeted out, it turns instantly
HYPER CONCAVE TRAILING EDGE ADVANTAGES : - Less drag : more acceleration, more hang time - Less kite fluttering during turns, and prevents the aging of the kite. - Removal of fiber battens on the tips : Kite more stable and lighter
REDUCED LE DIAMETER ADVANTAGES : - Kite is more light : its follows you during surf moves, without falling down - More reactivity : Performance in radical surfs, easy kite loops - Lighter bar pressure : Less effort
ONWARD CENTER OF EFFORT Center of effort NOTUS 2014 Center of effort NOTUS REV 2016
ADVANTAGES : - More stability in wave riding, kite drifts easily - Slack of the lines increased - Greater responsiveness
DETAILS REINFORCEMENTS We still find the usual reinforcements on Zeeko products, allowing an optimal strength / weight compromise. For the second year, the small spi clothes triangles on the trailing edge complement the reinforcement system and prevent premature aging of the kite.
NO DRAG LEADING EDGE Small diameter eading edge tips, reducing drag and preventing bridle to get stuck. SETTINGS 3 settings to optimize the bar feeling, according to his riding style.
INFLATING Ultrafast inflating / deflating valve ultra light one pump system. Simplified assembling for maximum reliability
ERA - Easy Relaunching Assistant All NOTUS REV are equipped with ERA connection, option when buying Zeeko bars.
