LIQUIDFORCE NRG 2014 LIGHTWIND REVIEW

LIQUID FORCE NRG Light Breeze
Sizes Available: 14, 16m
Sizes Tested: 16m

Liquid Force Says:

No one wants to be left on the beach watching light wind action. That’s where the NRG Light Breeze comes in, offering all the high-performance features and durability of the NRG kite in a larger, grunty, highly responsive flat profile, which is optimized for light wind.

Flying forward in the wind window, this efficient four-strut kite delivers outstanding upwind capability and extremely fast turning for its size. Easy to relaunch in the lightest of breeze, the NRG Light Breeze offers exceptional low-end power, and by installing the 7-meter extensions, you’ve got 30 meters of line total, for maximum sweep and lift. The NRG Light Breeze brings all the freestyle and freeride fun of the NRG to light wind conditions.

LIQUIDFORCE NRG 2014 LIGHTWIND REVIEW

Our Testers Say:

“Great low-end takeoff, good turning speed and goes upwind well while being super stable,” Greg Vasilieff.

“Good power, easy upwind with really light bar pressure,” Marko Bartscherer

“Fast, responsive kite that is stable at upper and low ends. Easy to relaunch. Carves
upwind with ease, low end grunt power,” Erik Rochner.

TKB Says:

The NRG Light Breeze is a 4-strut medium aspect kite that comes in both 14 and 16m sizing. The NRG was the fastest of the light wind kites tested to inflate with the large diameter Max Flow valve making setup quick and easy. The Max Flow does require a proprietary nozzle attachment but there’s a standard 9mm valve if you’re caught in a pinch. The NRG features solid build quality with ample bumper protection, three rear wingtip attachment settings, Dacron along the trailing edge, and a medium length non-adjustable front bridle. Testers praised the NRG for its lighter bar pressure, quick acceleration and fast turning as well as its impressive upwind ability.

The NRG came with the fixed length 55cm CPR Control Bar which features a push away quick release, single center line safety depower, below bar tuning cleat, sliding stopper, above bar swivel and soft protective bar ends with integrated floats. Testers found the bar comfortable and like other below bar cleating systems, reviewers commented on the pros and cons. We found the cleat to work fine with appropriate technique and the design allows the tuning controls to stay within reach while providing the option for longer travel throw and an overall clean system. The chicken loop stays attached to the rider upon trigger of the quick release and is simple to reassemble and well designed with non-mechanical parts.
