Introducing Epic Kites 4G    

2014 is quickly showcasing our strength in development and delivering unique products for very specific demands. We’ve been traveling the world seeking rider input, testing and refining our gear so that we can bring you the very best.

It’s these travels that allowed us to test and develop a line of kite travel bags for every need. Ranging from the Backpack to the epic sized Transporter, you can haul and protect all your gear no matter the length of the trip.

Extensive rider and dealer inputs have resulted in some key kite improvements and new models. The new Racer kite will have riders interested in competitive racing on the podium. It’s also a great solution for those that enjoy long floating jumps and supreme upwind drive. The Renegade now comes in 6.5 / 9 / 11 / 13 and Infinity V3 sizes. This trusty steed is a true all-terrain kite that now features our new Adjustable Bridle Setting system. In seconds, you can move the bridle to either the Wave Ride or Free Ride setting offering different performance characteristics. Many riders asked us not to change a thing about the Screamer. You’ll be happy to know that the powerhouse got a face lift and small refinements but will still send you to the moon. We thought about including oxygen masks in the Screamer bags! The Screamer kites comes in 7 / 9 / 10 ltd / 12 / 14.

On the horizon is the Epic SURF kite, which is dedicated to making your wave sessions extraordinary. Still in the development stages, this kite will come in 5 / 8 / 12 meter sizes and offer the true nirvana that surfers crave. We’ve also been testing a strutless kite specific to snow kiting and the harsh winter conditions. This environment demands a lightweight, simple and cost effective solution for optimal performance. The Epic Snow Kite will be available by the time the snow falls. For those that live for the handle pass and boots, the Judge will give you both style and grace. Available in 6 / 8 / 11 meter sizes it’s designed for fast sweeping turns, lots of drift and efficient relaunch. But that just barely scratches the surface of what this kite can do.

And not to leave out the groms – the Junior Pro 4 kite, Junior Pro board and Junior Pro Xtend bar are built specifically for young people. We highly support the future of kiteboarding by being the only company to offer a package that is loaded with safety features. We look forward to seeing the next generation develop and progress.

The 4G Xtend bar compliments all of our kite models through its ease of use and flexibility. Over a year in design and development, the new chicken loop is one of the fastest on the market. Safety is paramount, and you need equipment that can be trusted. Our new design is built tough and reliable – no detail has been overlooked. The new CL can also be adapted to our previous bars and can be purchased individually.

For the surf riders, you’ll love our new partnership with legendary shaper Jesse Fernandez. Our Reef surf boards have been redesigned to improve tracking, stability, speed and response. These surf boards come in 5'11" and 6'0".

The twin tip line such as the Oxygen V2, Droid V2 and Spartan V2 received a lot of attention and updates making them even more lively and fun. Bottom design sees improved water flow increasing speed, edge refinement allows them to track better, and rocker differences give them a snappy pop. Whatever your riding style or preference, these decks will suit your every need.

The 4G products will be released in different stages. Will be releasing the Renegade models first, then the 4G Xtend bar, followed by the Screamers models, then the Surf models once we have it ready and the snow kites.

We strive for excellence in everything we do. We never rest, never sleep, never stop testing and will never stop until you’re completely happy and on the water.
