Peter Lynn Charger III (V3) 2018 Depower Kiteboarding Kite >>
The Peter Lynn Charger V3 is the new high performance Twinskin kite from Peter Lynn Kiteboarding for all-terrain!
The Peter Lynn Charger V3 performs excellent on water, snow and sand alike making it the perfect crossover kite to get your kicks out of any sport you practice all-year round.
This latest Arc stays true to its core identity; it is built for passionate kite flyers who enjoy the elegant flow that only a true old school kite can offer. With the first Twinskin/ARC kites hitting the water before the turn of the century, Peter Lynn was amongst the earliest pioneers of the sport. With renowned names such as the S-ARC, Phantom, Bomba, Vortex and Venom the Peter Lynn Twinskin designs have remained innovative since the early days of kiteboarding.
By consistently standing out and staying true to our belief that ‘simplicity works best’, the latest kite once again offers all the benefits of the design. No pump, 4-lines, a small package, easy to set-up and pack down. Hit the beach, roll out your kite and start your session without having to leave anything behind.
The success of the Twinskin design is determined by the smooth way it delivers powerful performance. Whether you love to pull big kiteloops or simply enjoy a freeride session with high boosting jumps and floaty landings, the Charger delivers.
The Chargers C-shape is beautifully balanced because there are no heavy parts, this is reflected in the kites superior stability in all conditions and of course the famous ‘auto zenith’. The flexibility of the wing absorbs gusts allowing you to have a comfortable ride even in uncomfortable conditions.
The high-end performance is phenomenal, the Charger never gives you an unsafe feeling and keeps its outstanding performing. Its windrange is unequalled in its kind. For the third generation Charger, Peter Lynn have used a new fabric which is lighter and smoother, this results in a significant reduction of overall weight and better low end performance.
Born out of the love for kite flying in its purest form, Twinskin kites are designed to provide excellent performance in all disciplines: Kiteboarding, landboarding and snowkiting. This makes the Charger the ultimate all-round, all discipline and all conditions weapon for riders who won’t limit themselves to style or terrain.
The Peter Lynn Charger V3 flies faster, turns tighter and jumps higher than any other Twinskin kite and has a slightly more aggressive flying behaviour compared to previous Twinskin designs.
New improvements on the Charger V3 also include improved ground handling, together with an improved Auto-Zenith and improved windrange,
The new Charger III also includes a simplified VPC system allows you to easily switch from freestyle to waveriding settings in mere seconds.
The Peter Lynn Charger III will give you the extra performance to push your limits!

Light 30D Chikara high tenacity Fabric:
The top and bottom skin are made of 30D Ultra light and super strong, high tenacity Chikara fabric. For all internal ribs Peter Lynn have chosen to use strong but ultra light 70D fabric. The Charger is made out of a combination of the best fabrics giving the Charger the best weight to strength ratio.
Concave Leading Edge:
panel-shape and cell spacing:
‘single pulley’ VPC System:
Inflation Zippers (left & right):
When the kite crashes on the water, the taped seams as well as the valves behind the air inlets prevent the air escaping from the kite as well as any water getting in, for a quick and easy re-launch.
Some of the great advantages of this style of kite are:
Very clean airflow around the wing, both the
top skin and the bottom skin are shaped for maximum performance
and lift. No bladders or tubes that can burst, the kite is
more resistant to wear & tear.
Because of the extreme stability, a twin-skin
from Peter Lynn is unlikely to ever hit the water in the first
Many riders who are already flying Twin-Skin kites claim many months on the water without ever dropping it into the water, some even claim they have never had to do one.
Spend more time in the air and less time relaunching on the water. Get yourself a Peter Lynn Charger today and discover the new world of kite boarding all over again.
Package / Accessories:
The Peter Lynn Charger III is available as kite only or complete (with bar and lines).
The Peter Lynn Charger III Complete version comes with the following:
Peter Lynn Charger III Wind Range:
Depower Control Bar
Lynn Navigator Control Bar:
Peter Lynn Navigator Control Bar: The Peter Lynn Navigator Control Bar is the optimal bar design when it comes to safety and user comfort for kiteboarding, landboarding and snowkiting. The depower loop integrates a reliable working safety system, tangle free swivel and easy hooking in and out. The complete Navigator bar is designed to be as clean as possible without making any compromise in safety, user comfort or tuning your bar to your personal liking.
One of the main objectives was to design an easy and comfortable to use bar with safety system that meets the latest standards. The complete bar should be clean and without much explanation a rider should intuitively know how to use it. It should be made for a large range of riders from waveriding to freestyle.
Apart from this, it has always been implied in Peter Lynn’s design philosophy to make a product which lasts and can be kept in a good condition without too much hassle and at little cost. The Navigator incorporates materials of a very high quality with long lasting construction methods. Any parts that may wear out in the long term can easily be replaced.
Peter Lynn Charger Control Bar Main Features:
A performance inspiring kite for both new-comers and previous Twinskin users! Dan Eaton
Initial thoughts as soon as you get going on this kite is it feels like a Synergy - but it's only when you start turning and jumping the Charger that you realise you have something different! This is super quick!
Launching / Landing: Simply inflate, go to your control bar and tease the wingtip up. Really easy!
For landing, take the kite to the edge of the wind window and walk forward and watch the kite lie onto its back and behave itself! In stronger winds, an assisted launch / landing is always preferable.
Handling: For the initial testing - I connected the lines and control bar straight up to the VPC (Variable Power Control) system on the "factory setting". There are lots of options to alter bar pressure but straight out of the bag, this standard setting seemed to put me straight into my comfort zone and will give confidence into anyone who has flown Twinskin kites before.
One of the first things you are going to
notice with the Peter Lynn Charger Twinskin kite is the amount
of speed this kite produces in nearly no wind at all. This
kite is quick! Keep you hands in the middle of the bar on
the Charger unless you want to loop it!
This kite just sits above you in the sky nice and well behaved allowing you to have a rest without having to land your kite and stake it out onto a wet beach.
Jumping: This is the one that surprised me the most! Good overall jumping but the surprise was the amount of hangtime.
This kite sends you quick on the way up but once you are airborne there is plenty of hangtime to judge your height and then perform your manoeuvre.
The VPC system really does depower the kite alot! Hold on for as long as you can, pull in the control bar and let the VPC system do its job!
Build Quality: Improvements on the Peter Lynn Charger include a foolproof inflate/deflate zippers enabling for quick setup and pack-down, personalised bar pressure can be obtained by adjusting the different VPC attachment points on the wingtips.
3-part wingtip lightwight alloy spars allow for a smaller kitebag rucksack allowing for easy transportation or alternatively if you wish to leave the spars assembled - the bag is improved and now comes with a zip-up section to enclose the kite.
There is also a steering adjuster inside the kite to personalise a more tighter/looser turn rate as well as lighter/heavier bar pressure. Launch assistant tags are also included for easy solo-launching.
Special reinforcement patches on the tips as well as on the inside of the kite also ensure maximum durability where it's most needed!
Overall: This is a confidence inspiring kite for both new-comers to the sport and previous Twinskin users. For those more experienced kitesurfers / landboarders who want a forgiving kite to fly but with the power ability and depower to possibly get away with just one kite for a majority of wind conditions - this is the one!
