The 5th generation Trigger went through a bold reconstruction of the profile shape, which positions the kite to sit further in the edge of the window, causing more vertical pop, significant increase in hangtime and much better upwind performance.
The 5th Generation Blade Trigger continues to excel as a fast, nimble and powerfull all-round performance kite.
For the 5th generation Trigger, the profile shape went through a highly calculated reconstruction which positions the kite to sit further in the edge of the window, causing more vertical pop, significant increase in hangtime and much better upwind performance. The most noticeable difference in the new profile shape is in the wingtips, where the distance between the elbows has been nearly doubled. We’ve found this design to drastically help with stabilizing the kite, giving a rock solid feel. This has also helped drift the kite, perfect for wave riding and repositioning of the kite after big air's. Although it might be difficult to notice by the naked eye, the 5th generation Trigger has a much steeper and deeper pocket than last year’s model. This creates more power for better pop and longer hangtime.
You’ll definitely notice this the first time you go out riding!
The 5th generation is based on its successful predecessor, and like the Triggers before it, each size boasts individually designed geometry.
Many small refinements are made individually to each size so that it performs ideally in the conditions it is meant to be flown, here are some of them:
