FLYSURFER PEAK 4 FOIL KITE
Foil, Freeride, Touring, Travel, Progression
The Flysurfer PEAK 4 Foil Kite: agile, ultralight, powerful. The Peak single-skin foil kite combines our passion for usability and security that will make your outdoor kite experience unforgettable. Progressive depower, direct steering, high stability, and amazing power per m2 make the PEAK4 the perfect touring kite.
The Peak 4 was originally designed for snow kiting. It’s lightweight single skin design, efficiency and immense power have appealed to kiteboarders on the water as well. The low end power of the Peak is truly remarkable, it can fly in as little as 3 knots without need for constant steering. The Peak drops the light wind threshold for kiteboarding to 6-8 knots. Now foilers as well as twin tip freeriders have embraced the Peak to extend their sessions and season into days and areas that were previously unkiteable with LEI kites. Its low cost and ability to be flown on virtually any kite bar make it easy to add to your quiver and give you access to more days than previously imaginable.

Pros: Amazing light wind power, Low cost, Lightweight, Packs down very small, Large wind range, Incredibly stable, B-Safe flagging system
Cons: Poor Light Wind Water Relaunch
Hybrid Wingtip Technology
Hybrid Wingtip Technology consists of two self-inflating cells on each wingtip of the kite. The openings are protected with mesh material to prevent entry of snow or dirt. The more efficient aerodynamics of the wingtip allows for tighter turning with constant pull, as well as increased backstall resistance. Through that the bar feedback has been improved considerably, and the flapping of the tip is almost eliminated, giving the PEAK4 a sporty but familiar and confidence inspiring feeling.
The B-Safe System is guided along the B-Level attachment points, through polypropylene sliding rings. After activating the quick release, the bar slides up the 5th line and the kite is reefed horizontally in the middle. This removes the pressure in the kite and allows it to come down powerless through the wind window. The PEAK4 can then be reactivated immediately and can be restarted in the power zone. Independent launching and landing of the PEAK4 is fully supported by this safety system.
Single Skin Foilkite Concept
The Single-Skin foil kite concept has a very efficient depower and allows for immediate loss of power using the bar throw, offering the PEAK4 high levels of safety on the mountain. Its performance and unparalleled traction generate amazing power per square meter. Increased profile curvature for the PEAK4 maximizes lift and agility. The most obvious benefit of the Single Skin concept is the reduced mass of the kite, allowing the PEAK4 to be stable whilst flying at the edge of the wind window in the slightest breeze, without overflying and remaining easy to control in low to high winds.
The PEAK4 uses our proven material mix of DLX+ & X-Light cloth, as well as new reinforcements in areas subject to particularly high loads such as the leading edge, the wingtip and the trailing edge of the kite. The single skin concept simply collapses during hard crashes on the leading edge, and therefore can not burst or be badly damaged. The new outline of the PEAK4, the reduced number of cells and bridle layout, in addition to the use of X-Light cloth used for large areas of the canopy, result in an incredibly light kite, which has the smallest pack size and is therefore perfectly suited for kite touring.
