Product Description

Unbelievable Low-End

The SPEED4 Lotus reduces the minimum wind requirements considerably. Especially in combination with high-performance kiteboards and hydrofoils this advantages is very noticeable.

Maximum Performance

The optimized and smoother profiles of the top and bottom sails as well as the reduced line drag effect, have a noticeable effect on the total performance of the wing. Thanks to these new technologies, a significant increase in performance has been achieved on the SPEED4 Lotus.

Lotus Kite Cloth

The Lotus kite cloth is very sleek, airtight, up to 25% lighter than our deluxe cloth and makes for an extremely smooth top and bottom sail. This advantage is clearly noticeable: earlier flying, tighter turning and more stability. Water and dirt is automatically repelled from the kite.

Automatic Drainage System

The proven drainage system is located on both ends of the trailing edge near the tips, openings that are about the size of a hand. They allow water and sand to be drained automatically, without influencing the performance of the kite.

Reduced Pack-Size

Because of the Lotus kite cloth, packing size is again significantly reduced, so your kite luggage becomes even more compact.

High Performance Flying Lines

Thanks to new Dyneema core fibers, we could reduce the diameter of the new high-performance flying lines significantly, creating less drag, while retaining the same breaking loads of the lines.

Uniform Bar Setup

The SPEED4 Lotus is equipped with a Infinity 2.0 control bar which uses the 1m long leader lines of the CRONIX. This allows the control bar to be used on both kites. It is only necessary to ensure that the stopper knot is set to the longest FLS position of the kite which is used.

Full Depower Safety Upgrade-Kit (FDS)

By default, the SPEED4 Lotus is equipped with a frontline safety (FLS). For fans and supporters of the 5th line safety system, we have developed a FDS upgrade-kit, which can be ordered in our online-shop or at a FLYSURFER dealer near you.

Speed4 Lotus … just unique!

The SPEED product line has become a synonym for pure performance, ever since its introduction in 2001. A sleek and stretched out machine ensuring low-end performance, maximum upwind ability and airtime. The key to the sustained success of the SPEED was continuous improvement of overall performance and kite handling – “power is nothing without control” could have been the slogan for the SPEED3. Turning ability, handling, stability and depower have reached a very high level. With the SPEED4 Lotus, we were able to gain another step in both “power” and “control”. The improved design and profiles in conjunction with the new Lotus kite cloth push the boundaries of low-end, upwind, lift and hangtime once more.

At FLYSURFER we have always set high standards on quality and durability. The highlight is the use of a completely new type of cloth material with a so-called Lotus effect, an industry first in kiteboarding. This material is not only extremely airtight and has excellent water- and stain-resistance, it is so smooth that we can not even print on the kite. The Lotus cloth is a staggering 25% lighter than our already very light deluxe cloth! This weight reduction means: the kite is flies even earlier, can be packed-up smaller, is easier than ever before, to get out of the water and the cloth remains airtight even after countless hours of flight time – maintaining the same performance as the day you bought it.
