Noted and respected for its ability to produce oxygen depriving height and exceptional hang time, the Screamer raises the bar for big riding. Get ready for the ride of your life with the Screamer 10m Limited Edition. This specialized kite is our test pilot for the next generation of Screamers and has been vastly improved over the 3G version.

Our Testers Say:

“Epic boosting machine – your single rotation will soon be doubles – burley power for size and sweet grip,” Davey Beard.

“Solid all around freestyle kite that sits back in the window for more power and pop,” Marko Bartscherer.

“Tons of pop, yanked me off the water with good turning speed considering it was a 12,” Frank Russo.

Meet the 2014 TKB Test Team.

TKB Says:

The Screamer is a 5-strut medium aspect kite ideal for big jumps and lofty hangtime. The Screamer comes with standard 9mm inflation / 11mm dump valve, heavier build quality and medium length clean bridle layout. Testers found the Screamer to be quick turning with medium bar pressure, solid feedback and direct steering response. Testers commented that the relaunch required some finesse but overall the Screamer stands out as a solid freestyle kite with impressive boosting and lofty hangtime when powered.

The Screamer came with the 4G Xtend bar which features a redesigned push away quick release, sliding stopper, single center line depower, adjustable bar ends (45, 55cm) and above bar tuning strap. The Xtend bar has a larger diameter grip which testers praised for feel and comfort and the quick release was simple and easy to reset in the water. Testers commented the tuning controls were far away due to the longer throw but overall testers liked the clean rigging and feel of the bar.
