New for this year is the use of lightweight 140g Dacron material, alongside a double rip stop canopy material and redesigned construction details for a maximum saving of weight. These materials enhance the handling of the kite in ways never thought possible. While the general design approach has remained the same, the 2020 Mono is radically different to last year’s model. The lower weight ensures unrivalled drifting abilities, more dynamic handling, a near-mystical ability to stay in the air in the lulls and improved power from a faster upstroke. Finally, the relaunch of the kite is much easier too; it’s so light that the slightest of puffs of wind will see it rising back into the sky.
If you want a light kite for travelling, this is it, if you want a dynamic kite with an incredible low end for foiling, step right up, if you are just starting your kiting journey and want an easy to fly, forgiving kite, look no further. If wave riding sets your heart on fire, the Mono will happily stoke the flames especially in light winds, or perhaps freeride is your game, you’ll enjoy the constant pull and smooth power delivery. The Mono may be defined as a one-strut kite, but it is so much more than that, take one for a spin and find out what it is all about!
