Eleveight OS 2021
The OS is advancing the boundaries of light wind performance, allowing riders to take-off in the slightest breeze. It is the one tool all foil riders need for their quiver.
The OS is our dedicated foil and freeride kite, every inch of material delivers outstanding performance, no
matter how thin the breeze. The Open-C design launches in wind well below 10 knots. It is remarkably
fast, has a massive sweet spot, and is very direct and precise to steer. The power deployment is very
smooth, ideal for foiling. For V2 we decreased the aspect ratio while adding more sweep to the wingtips.
These adjustments improve stability, especially in stronger winds and gusts. We upgraded the Dacron to
the innovative XT material, which is lighter yet stronger. The reworked trailing edge is now equipped with
anti-vibration patches, effectively reducing flutter. Making those modifications, we were able to develop a
much sturdier kite that is lighter and more agile than ever before.
Building a lightweight yet durable construction is a tough challenge, a challenge we met by combining
high-tech materials with innovative development techniques.
