If you are looking for a lightweight ultra-simple kite to take your riding, foiling, or kite tricks to the next level, the Ghost is your friendly companion.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE GHOST V1
- NEW Single Strut Platform - Lightweight & agile in the sky / Small and packable on the beach
- NEW Compact Swept C shape - provides the precision of a C kite with the instant on/off power delivery of a swept wingtip shape
- NEW 4x4 Canopy Tech - The stiffest canopy material on the market reduces flutter and increases durability
NEW 4x4 Canopy TechNew for 2020, we’ve upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind. NEW Compact Swept C Shape This design blends the steering precision and speed of a C kite with the instant on and off power delivery that comes with swept wing tip shapes. This profile also provides instant and effortless water relaunch no matter the wind conditions.
NEW Single Strut PlatformThe Ghost boasts just a single strut. Eliminating the excess struts makes this kite lightweight and extremely agile in the sky while also mirroring that light weight feel at the bar. Nimble turning, quick-handling, amazing power control, this is how kites should feel.
NEW FlyWeight ConstructionIn addition to the simple weight reduction of removing struts, we also minimized stitching, paneling, extra leading edge reinforcements to make the Ghost as light as possible. Think about it this way we trimmed all the weight you don’t need while keeping what you do.
IRS Bridle SystemThe IRS Bridle replaces pulleys traditionally used on any bridle. Pulleys can be heavy, slow and inefficient. They can also create f riction and unnecessary line wear. The IRS bridle features a bungee that eliminates the time necessary for the pulley to travel fore and aft depending on the rider’s control of the kite. This travel takes time and historically pulleys were the only way we could initiate it. With the IRS bridle the bungee does it and does it better. What used to be delayed and unresponsive now happens instantly, seamlessly and automatically. This is a significant breakthrough in advancing kite performance.
Split StrutA Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry wide, Splitstrut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Splitstrut creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall f rame.
Multiple Attachment PointsDifferent attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power, and performance, based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
