The Jet is Gaastra’s dedicated race kite. It is a no compromise design that pushes the rider to the next level. Based on the racing requirements the Jet performance is joy for everybody.
Speed, rapid acceleration and superior handling in this kite were mandatory for Kite Designer Urs Hungerbühler. After proving those aspects the challenge was to add better LOW- and HIGH END performance to make this kite a race winner!
Riding the new Jet is effortless. If you are racing or just boosting around, you don’t have to think about the kite- it knows what it needs to do. The power is there when you need it and easy to shut off when you don’t. The perfect blend for racers and free riders alike.
Based on the latest aerodynamics we have combined a new arc with a dynamic profile to deliver the best race kite available. The weight of the kite is minimized, while providing unmatched durability. The 17 meter Jet is THE lightwind kite of choice with a low end down in the 6 knot range while maintaining unequaled turning abilities. When you want ultimate handling and power, the new Jet delivers.
