Full Depower Safety Upgrade-Kit (FDS)
By default, the SPEED4 Lotus is equipped with a frontline safety (FLS). For fans and supporters of the 5th line safety system, we have developed a FDS upgrade-kit, which can be ordered in our online-shop or at a FLYSURFER dealer near you.
The SPEED product line has become a synonym for pure performance, ever since its introduction in 2001. A sleek and stretched out machine ensuring low-end performance, maximum upwind ability and airtime. The key to the sustained success of the SPEED was continuous improvement of overall performance and kite handling – “power is nothing without control” could have been the slogan for the SPEED3. Turning ability, handling, stability and depower have reached a very high level. With the SPEED4 Lotus, we were able to gain another step in both “power” and “control”. The improved design and profiles in conjunction with the new Lotus kite cloth push the boundaries of low-end, upwind, lift and hangtime once more.
At FLYSURFER we have always set high standards on quality and durability. The highlight is the use of a completely new type of cloth material with a so-called Lotus effect, an industry first in kiteboarding. This material is not only extremely airtight and has excellent water- and stain-resistance, it is so smooth that we can not even print on the kite. The Lotus cloth is a staggering 25% lighter than our already very light deluxe cloth! This weight reduction means: the kite is flies even earlier, can be packed-up smaller, is easier than ever before, to get out of the water and the cloth remains airtight even after countless hours of flight time – maintaining the same performance as the day you bought it.
