CrazyFly Says:

The Sculp is a high performance kite suitable for pretty much every rider. Completely redesigned and improved for 2014 from shaping to details, it performs exceptionally well as an all-around freeride and freestyle kite. A new bridle setup with four attachment points on the leading edge makes the 2014 Sculp hold its shape in gusty conditions and adds to a more direct feel for the rider. Due to the new shape and stronger bridle setup and positioning, the 2014 Sculp has significantly improved top end performance and stability.

The 2014 Sculp is your new weapon for ultimate performance in an all-around kite. As with all CrazyFly products, the Sculp demonstrates the highest standards of quality both in materials and manufacture. It’s the perfect combination of great value, high quality and performance at a fantastic price.

Our Testers Say:

“Kite has good pull, drives to the edge of the window when overpowered and turns quickly making jumps big and floaty when powered,” Eric Macauliffe.

“Smooth stable kite, good all around and very easy to handle, ideal for beginner and intermediate riders,” Evangeline Amores.

“Solid in the air, fast flying with good hangtime. Responsive in the low end, but can be sensitive to back stall if over sheeted,” Dray Murray.

TKB Says:

The 2014 Sculp is a medium aspect 3-strut kite that is billed as CrazyFly’s freeride / freestyle kite. The Sculp comes with the standard 9mm inflation / 11mm dump valve and three wingtip adjustments. Testers found the Sculp to have lighter bar pressure, but good steering response and easy relaunch. The Sculp had excellent low end power while still going upwind relatively well with all around middle of the road jumping performance. Testers recommended this kite for beginner and intermediate kiters as a good freeride and casual freestyle kite.

CRAZYFLY-SCULP-CONTROL-BAR-2014-GEAR-REVIEW

The Sculp comes with the Sick bar, a fixed length bar (40, 45, 50, or 55cm length) that is built entirely from carbon fiber and is made in the EU. The bar features a plastic push away quick release, above bar Clam Cleat, single center line safety, sliding stopper, comfortable rubber bar ends and an easy to use swivel above the quick release for untwisting center lines. The testers found the stamped grip to have higher density than most and some warned fingers could be pinched at the center of the bar. Some also noted the extra bulk and length of the safety depower line running up the center lines. The chicken loop was easy to reassemble with a guide built into the design, but closing the quick release required some finesse. Overall the bar is lightweight, simple and functional earning praise from our test riders.
