The design of the “Freeracer” makes this kite the perfect tool for speed junkies. Maximum control and easy handling are very important when pilots experience the perfect speed kick during foiling, snowkite racing or buggy riding.
One of the main goals of the development was to build an extremely user friendly kite, whose character is extremely good-natured and smooth. This means that even critical situations can be mastered perfectly with the “freeracer”.
Pilots do not need any special training for starting and handling the “Freeracer”. Replacing the lines after a few hours of flying to get perfect handling and feel for the kite is no longer necessary. All materials used are perfectly matched to each other for a kite of this class, lightweight and extremely durable.
The setup of the “Freeracer” is clearly designed to experience pure race performance without taking the position of a purebred competition kite.
High rotation speed and tight turning radii, coupled with extremely efficient power release, make the “Freeracer” an easy to fly fun machine that can be used for many terrains.
High controllability and uncomplicated flight behaviour – this allows pilots to adapt quickly to new situations and perfect their learning successes.
LIGHT WIND SETUP
Foilboards don’t need much wind, the use of the “Freeracer” has been perfected for this very purpose. With its robust 20D sail material, the “Freeracer” is one of the lightest production kites on the market. The absence of nylon rods on the profile nose and the low cell shape considerably reduces the weight of the “freeracer”.
A constant pull due to very narrow turning radii gives the starting impulse required for the foiling. Once in motion, the “freeracer” accelerates continuously.
Extremely careful workmanship and precise panel shaping make the deformation of the cap controllable. This increases stability and slows down the kite when depowered. At the same time, the kite moves away from the edge of the wind window to a more stable position.
A special shape with high curvature allows the kite to fly very stable even with a high projected aspect ratio and greatly reduces the risk of butterflies.

Depower Kite Guide
Bar and Lines NOT included
Our new „ONE" Bar is the universal tool for your kite. Besides our tube kites, it can be used with any of our Depower kites in the HQ Powerkites range. Features like a Single-Front-Line Safety, easy depower adjustments and a self-untwisting ceramic swivel are only some of the innovations of the new „ONE" Bar that we adapted to customer's needs. Our new bar system clearly exemplifies our focus on progressive design elements, precisely optimized handling and detailed attention to quality and safety.
The contoured ergonomic EVA grip offers long lasting comfort and excellent hold in every situation. The bar ends come with an integrated floater so that in connection with the coated backlines you won't get stuck during the water start. The stopper ball helps to relaunch the kite. A high quality clam cleat for ease of use and infinite adjustment within its range offers a perfect adaption to the rider and the wind conditions. Thanks to the front line safety the kite will release all its power, and gently drift with the leading edge facing down until it smoothly lands on the water or land. The kite will stay in this position until you are ready to restart it. The „ONE" Bar is available in 49 cm and 55 cm and comes with 24 m long stretched dyneema lines.
1. Soft Barends with integrated Line Keepers for more comfort and secured lines when winded up.
2. Covered Backlines To protect the lines from damage and avoid tangles after hard crashes.
3. Adjustable Relaunch Balls For easy and safe relaunch.
4. Self-untwisting Centerline Swivel the rust-free, super light self-untwisting Swivel keeps the centerlines untwisted while doing rotations or kiteloops.
5. Adjustable Bar Stopper To adjust the depowerway to the armlength.
6. Adjustable Clam cleat to adjust the depowerway to the size of the rider and the wind conditions.
7. Quick release Simple and intuitive release combined with easy reassembly offers a maximum of safety.
8. Dyneema Lines High quality pre-stretched Dyneema lines with almost no elongation for a super direct feel. Sleeved and stitched ends with a maximum load of 300 kg.
