We wanted to create a wave kite that turns super fast but at the same time keeps the best elements of our early BWSURF Noise models, primarily drift and stability. With the Æ2 we can proudly say we’ve succeeded in this mission. The Æ2 is a complete re-design with a smoother profile and faster turning achieved in part through altering arc shapes through each size. The response on the wave and drift is far greater than any other kite we have made or flown. A tricky combination to achieve but one that delivers a far more user-friendly performance to the rider and will make riding in waves (or landing freestyle tricks) smoother and more achievable for all levels of rider.
Each size of Æ2 has been specifically designed for its purpose and wind range (no up or down scaling). The Leading Edges in bigger sizes are lighter and thinner but still hold enough volume for a rigid frame and fast relaunch. Additionally, each kite size has its own specific bridling frame for best performance.
Æ2 is an incredibly high performance and complete wave kite for ALL conditions and ALL levels.
SMOOTH POWER & DRIFT
“Æ2 is the continuation of the Æ1 and has been built for riding in demanding conditions based on my personal experiences. From light summer breezes to intense Typhoons, this kite has seen it all. The new refined SD profile (Smooth Drift) of the kite makes a much smoother power delivery and feeling in the bar while enhancing the turning speed and performance through all areas of the 3D window.
Each size has been designed for the specific conditions and is not simply a scale up of the shape. It has different over all aspect ratios through the range; lower in the smaller and larger sizes, while maintaining a medium aspect through the mid range for best performance. The Æ2 offers an enhanced sensation while riding the wave yet you don’t know the kite is there. After the first turn for initial setup the kite will just follow you down the line with absolutely no pull, allowing you to ride the wave. But when needed the kite is super responsive, just sheet in to get around that section and set yourself up for the next lip annihilation!
The Æ2 is hands-down the most user friendly wave kite to date!” – Dano See
