Engineered with wakestyle and freestyle riders in mind, the Hantu V-III offers a crisp, connected, and lively feel — precision performance for Masters of Style, kitelooping, and big-air boosting. Designed to accelerate your progression however you ride, the Hantu V-III blends a real C-kite feel with the performance, simplicity and safety of a delta kite. This potent and versatile 3-strut hybrid offers it all: powerful precision, direct response, explosive lift, long hang time, smooth glide, quick turning, massive range, ultra-stability, effortless relaunch, and a world-class no-stall design.
Suited for intermediate to pro kiters, the Hantu V-III will boost you to the moon, help you throw unhooked wakestyle tricks with ease, slay rails and kickers, turn spectator’ s heads with gigantic megaloops, and drop jaws with floaty, old-school board-offs. Tremendously versatile, the Hantu V-III features two modes of setup:
Freeride Mode- Featuring light bar pressure, tight turns, maximum depower, smooth power development, and high steering sensitivity.
Wakestyle Mode- Featuring medium bar pressure, increased kite feedback, aggressive kite loops, maximum pop, less depower, and less pull unhooked.
Offering a consistent and smooth pull, the 4-line Hantu V-III delivers user-friendly handling, adjustable bar pressure, high depower and a fifth-line option for ultimate safety. For wakestyle warriors, this kite delivers the coveted “ moment of slack” — a short delay in power after loading and popping off the water — which makes handlepassing easier than ever.
Utilizing hassle-free block pulleys on the bridle, the lightweight Hantu V-III also features a wide-mouth wingtip dump valve and a single-point, one-way inflation system for quick-and-easy setup and breakdown. To boost long-term durability and performance for 2016, we introduced four new materials: Challenge Dacron, Double Ripstop SBS101 Canopy Material, Dyneema OL2 lines, and extra Insignia Tape.
Better yet, the Hantu V-III offers excellent upwind reach and low-wind performance, and is guaranteed to expedite your progression. Engineered and constructed to the industry’ s highest standards, what sets this kite apart is that it performs on par with the best of the best — but without the inflated cost. No matter your style, the Hantu V-III will pave the way to becoming a Master of Style. Extreme performance, without the extreme price tag.
RIDER PROFILE: The Hantu is ideal for riders of all types. Especially riders who enjoy any combination of the following: hooked-in freestyle, unhooked wakestyle, big jumps, kite loops, mega loops and/or powered wave riding.
Sakai Techfibre (Japan) is home in the top end acrobatic paraglider and spinnaker fabrics which are manufactured exclusively by Sakai Ovex in Japan. For their SBS101 double ripstop kite canopy they use high tenacity polyester yarn manufactured by Toray Japan exclusively for Techfibre. Toray Japan is a multinational corporation specialized in polymer chemistry. This makes SBS101 the ONLY full Japanese canopy on the market. The canopy production is based on a new process that gives multiple benefits over conventional canopy. The quality consistency from batch to batch is of a level we have not seen before. Special attention is taken to avoid “chalking” of the canopy after some use, a visual problem seen on many kites on the market. Rather than one sided coating, SBS101 has adopted a double sided multilayer coating technology for longer airproof canopy
