Flysurfer Sonic-FR on Snow

Flysurfer Sonic-FR on Snow

The Flysurfer Sonic-FR is a new high performance race foil from Flysurfer. The Sonic-FR comes in 11m , 15m and 18m sizes. Whilst away this week at the Ozone Snowkite Masters 2015 in Silvaplana, Swizterland we snapped a few shots of this upcoming kite. From what we saw – mainly from the 15m in light winds the performance looks great, the kite maintained a lot of air pressure and turned extremely well. One of the riders flying the Sonic-FR was getting some great hangtime as well as bombing it along on the flats. The Sonic-FR is due for release shortly and will be shipping with a new version of the Infinity bar. We can’t wait to get our hands on one to fly it back to back with the Ozone Chrono and Flysurfer Speed 4.

The Flysurfer Sonic FR – looks interesting!

The Flysurfer Sonic FR – looks interesting!

This week Flysurfer have announced a new kite in the range called the Flysurfer Sonic-FR. FR stands for Full Race which is pretty self explanatory. This kite is not simply a tuned up Speed 4 but a totally new kite. If you are looking for high performance, maximum hangtime and lightwind performance then this could be the one for you. We dont know how it will compare to the Chrono yet but we imagine that will be what it is trying to beat.

Some interesting observations are the trailing edge where the cells are split into two – this should increase rigidity and performance.

These are the features mentioned by Flysurfer:

  • Ultra-high-performance foil with 3D shaped profile, characterized by extreme performance and hangtime.
  • Control, Performance and maximum Efficiency.
  • Advanced RibCell Technology
  • Racebar setup with exclusive „low-drag” bridle- and flying lines, creating less drag, while retaining high breaking loads of the lines.

Sizing: 11m2 / 15m2 / 18m2 with IKA approval

We cannot wait to see higher res images and actually test the kite!
