The new easiness or how to make something good even better. When our Smithi 2012 was launched, we said this about it: Our four-lined kite Smithi is actually a little sensation. It can be stopped suddenly, steered in all directions, even backwards (!), makes super tight spins without loosing altitude and with a little practice it can fly sideways! ... This is made possible by an clever bridle system and one-way valves as intakes, which prevents the air from escaping abruptly. All this is still true for the new Smithi 1.6, which replaces our well established Smithi. And yet it's more: in addition to a few minor changes in the geometry, we have given it a modern profile support. This makes it more efficient in dynamic flight with even better feedback. The bridle can now be adjusted to different wind speeds and preferences of the pilot by a knot ladder.
The Smithi PS 1.6 we offer here is the standard version made of Nylon 40D, ready to fly with 4x25m 150/75 kg Dyneema on winder including quadline handles.
