Wild Thing 6
Being focused on one style is good, but serving all styles is even better. With our JN 3 D approach, the hybrid shape for 4&5 lines, we focused on more performance orientated Wild Thing than ever. The 6th generation of the Wild Thing provides an even faster turning, strong static pull, powerful lift and enhanced low wind performance. The Wild Thing benefits from the rich innovative features from JN, like Perfect Round Arc Shape combined with the best materials available to the industry. We accepted no compromise in quality. To answer the low wind requirements with a performance model there are the sizes: 12 and 14. Easy four lines bridle kite offers the benefits of a fast responding performance weapon when you need it. With Wild Thing expect a sportive, fast turning, well balanced modern 4 with optional 5 line kite concept serving classic freestyle or freeride/wave.

The leading edge is made from minimal segments and is completely rounded which is achieved with clever cutting methods. This makes it lighter, stiffer, more robust and far more aerodynamic.
For the first time 3 axes are calculated in curved space in the design of the leading edge and also for the Canopy. The path led through many airflow analysis, rider feedbacks and inclusion of R&D work since 1999. The smaller 3D surfaces have the same efficiency as large areas of former 2D concepts, which means a higher efficiency of the entire kite.The principle is very consistently implemented for the whole Leading Edge, to provide uncompromising sporty quick turning and explosiveness (including through multi-tip surfaces and other Leading Edge curvature).
Canopy is optimized in all ares from tip to the center according to the real airflows along the cap. This provides better performance and efficiency, stable performance at the wind window and balanced flying ability with no front- or back staling.
Single point inflation - a proven external, easy to maintain system
We know we have a direct influence on work ethics in the world, that’s why we work with international partners and subcontractors who maintain decent working standards as a matter of course.
