The 2017 CrazyFly Sculp is a versatile all-around performer, suitable for a wide range of riders and styles. It delivers consistency in all riding disciplines and offers incredible wind range and ease of use.
For 2017, we have completely re-worked the Sculp, as it is now made in our own factory in Europe which opened up unlimited options for improvements and innovation. Shape wise, the Sculp now has a higher aspect ratio, which makes the kite slimmer and much faster. This also results in a more Delta shape which offers smooth, stable, and predictable flight with progressive power delivery. Overall, by completely reworking the construction of the 2017 Sculp, the kite is much more rigid and more durable than ever before. With the brand new construction and exploiting different ways of printing, we managed to save 10% of weight again. This is 0,5kg weight saving on a 12m kite which noticeably extends the wind range of the kite.

Our Testers Say:
“Straightforward, easy to control with a super simple design. This kite is stable and predictable, making progression a breeze.” // Jabe Harpole.
“A simple, no fuss and colorful design that was super stable when tested on a light wind day.” // Rhonda Reyna.
“Both stable and responsive, this solid, jack of all trades kite was grunty, went upwind well and relaunched with ease.” // Brent Borodic.
The Sculp is a medium aspect 3-strut freeride kite with swept back wingtips that inflates with a Boston valve that requires the larger inflation nozzle and three steering settings on the wingtip. This year, as part of the redesign, the bridles are fixed with no pulleys. Testers found the Sculp to be very stable with medium bar pressure and average turning speed and decent range and good upwind ability. The Sculp delivers a fair amount of depower in a relatively small amount of throw which keeps the controls fairly closer to your body and the larger sizes pull fairly hard with a very useful amount of grunt to get you through the lulls and staying upwind. While the Sculp has middle of the road steering response, it does offer quite easy relaunch and predictable handling. If you’re looking for something with a little more performance edge you should consider taking the Tango for a spin. Overall, testers reported easy relaunching and recommended this kite for beginner and intermediate riders looking for a user-friendly kite for learning and freeride progression.
The 2016 Sick Bar is a full carbon fixed length (40, 45, 50, 55cm) bar with different line lengths based on bar length and a PU sheeting/throw line, no sliding stopper, metal insert, molded donkey dick, single center-line safety, low V, above bar depower Clam cleat with a strategically positioned Velcro tuning handle to keep the depower control toggle from tangling and a push away quick release with integrated swivel that doubles as a quick release guard. The center lines end in a knot and the outside lines end in pigtails. The length of sheeting/throw cannot be adjusted for varying arm lengths of kiters or the type of riding. The molded floats are stiffer than last year’s model yet still kind of flexible. This is a huge improvement with regard to keeping the lines tightly wound and organized on the bar when not in use. The bar ends are soft and incorporate easy to use non-retractable bungees and the outside leader lines do not adjust for tuning/stretch. Overall, riders liked the simple narrow diameter, firm yet smooth rubber grip of the Sick bar and recommend it as a simple yet functional control system.
