Eleveight OS Kite Package
The Eleveight OS Kite Package features one strut mid-swept hybrid design, High performance wing for foiling and free ride, Ultra responsive and dynamic turning speed, Medium aspect ratio optimized for light wind usage, Medium sweep for low end performance and backstall prevention, Outstanding stability in all conditions, Feather-light design paired with an extra durable construction, Superior materials like X4 canopy and XT cloth made by Techno Force™.
Murrays Review: The consistency and stability allow the OS to feel almost immediately familiar and confidence inspiring. Large wind range with both a solid low end and great depower. We recommend the smaller sizes for foiling, the mid range sizes for crossover freeride/foil/waves and the larger sizes are great for light wind freeriding.
Eleveight’s OS Description:
Meet the brand new Eleveight OS Kite! A dedicated foil and freeride kite, streamlined to deliver outstanding performance even in a gentle breeze. The OS’s feather-light design redefines durable and sturdy built quality. It is extremely robust while being ultra responsive. The Open-C shape is so much fun to ride, the second you launch you will feel a new sensation of agility, speed, and direct control. Even though it is remarkably dynamic, the OS is easy to tame. It has a smooth power deployment and it’s steering is very precise.
We shaped the kite with a medium aspect ratio and medium swept wing tips. This excessively improves the low-end wind performance, allowing even heavy-set riders to take off in well below 10 knots. This kite is a game changer for those who need to make every day on the water count.
As riding in light wind can be tricky, we paid special attention to the wing’s relaunch capabilities. The OS comes out of the water with ease in hardly any wind. We were also able to eliminate backstall and made the kite exceptionally stable. The canopy is made with the renowned X4 Techno Force™ ripstop cloth and the latest XT high-end leading edge and strut material by Japanese manufacturer Teijin. This combination diminishes flutter and is wear and tear resistant. We spent more than two years on the development of the OS and are extremely proud of the result. Choose the OS and take off in any breeze.

Adjustable turning settings:
We love this feature on the Eleveight kites. We have seen kites with front bridle settings but this feature has never really been well explained or understood, and most kites that we have seen it on didn’t perform well outside of the standard setting. But Eleveight has labeled the attachment point pigtail and the canopy to make it easy to use and understand.
The 3 settings are: Tip, Standard and Pivot. This changes affect the axis that the kites turn on. These setting dictate how large the diameter of the rotation is in the sky, how much power it generates thru the turn and how long it takes to complete any given rotation. On the user end they change how hard and how long you need to pull to get the kite thru a turn with Pivot being that quickest and Tip being the longest.
Pivot – This setting makes the kite to rotate on an axis in the center of the kite. This setting has the fastest rotation. It spins around a central axis and redirects its self without needing to move up or down in the wind window. This setting rotates the kite the fastest and with the least power generated thru the turn. This is the best setting for quickly redirecting with the kite when you do not want to generate any additional power allowing you to put the kite exactly where you want it without getting pulled off course. Surfers like this so they can position the kite right where they want it and they can stay on the wave.
Standard – This setting makes the kite rotate on an axis half way between the center of the kite and its wing tip. This setting will generate some additional power thru the turn but not a lot, and it will rotate only about half a kite width out side of a wingspan a full bar tilt turn. This is the happy medium setting that the kites come set on and most people ride on. It can rotate quickly with out much effort and it can still make a sweeping turn to generate power when needed.
Tip – The Tip setting makes the kite pivot on its wingtip. So the kite will change in altitude about one kite width. This setting will generate the most power thru the turn and will take the longest to complete a rotation. This is the setting for those who want the kite take a wider turning arch and to generate more power thru the turn. Great for freeriders, powered turns, boosting, and high winds as it slows down the tuning making it easy to handle when the wind wants to turn the kite really fast.
