The Peter Lynn Leopard is an exceptional combination
of powerful performance and safe snow kiting. This 5th line,
high aspect ratio, open cell depower kite is designed for
high performance snowkiting and for experienced snowkiters
that breakdown boundaries with ease.
To ensure you get the best out of every session
Peter Lynn have made the Leopard into a fast flying, quick
turning powerhouse with a large usable windrange that delivers
its performance in a reliable and controllable way.
To make it more aerodynamic and to enhance
it’s stability, glass-fibre rods have been placed along
the leading edge. The new Leopards smooth nose shape and upgraded
profiles make the kite turn faster with more pressure through
the turns, helping you to get to where you are going no time.
New for 2018 Improvements:
A new bridle configuration
offers a spectrum of advantages. A smaller turning circle
which makes it easier to loop the kite, better responsiveness
throughout the kite’s windrange and a lighter, nimbler
feel on the bar.
This fine-tuned bridle also has the kite sit
further forward in the wind window, which results in less
sideways pull and higher forward speed. It also means less
stress on your arms and legs when riding at extreme upwind
angles or up steep mountain faces.
This increase in efficiency makes the kite
more powerful per size while its light weight construction
and quick turning make the kite excel in light wind. To make
high performance available to intermediate riders and experts
alike, the Leopards aspect ratio is built to be as stable
as possible in whatever winds nature throws at you.
The Leopard is an extremely powerful depower
foil with superior flight characteristics. In light winds
it is quick enough and generates enough power to get you going,
but crank the bar in higher winds and you’ll be flying
off before you know it. Feel the acceleration and experience
the thrill of sending the Leopard for a long floaty jump.
Whether you want to loop to the top and glide
back down, boost massive airs or simply go faster and further
than the rest, the Leopard provides you with a smooth platform
with plenty performance on tap to get you where you want to
A big wind range, good low end power, high
turning speed and massive lift & hangtime are some of
the key characteristics the Leopard brings to the table.
Peter Lynn Magnet
5-Line Control Bar:
The Peter Lynn Leopard comes with the new
Peter Lynn Magnet control system that is optimized for use
in snow, while not compromising its suitability and ease of
use for any other kite activity. Based upon the proven Navigator
bar, this system ensures functionality and safety at the highest
level of performance.
Peter Lynn Leopard
High Flying Speed
- The high aspect ratio
of the Leopard guarantees high speed flying making the
kite perfectly suited for some fast cruising. Transfer
this speed into a jump and you’ll boost big with
plenty of hangtime to bust out some big, tweaked out old
Range - The Leopard has
a big depower range to ensure you can handle the often
changing conditions. This allows for maximum riding time
without having to size up or down.
- This stability makes the Leopard a highly reliable jumper,
ready to take your riding to a higher level.
- Crazy lift
and float - Its high performance profile
is tuned for massive jumps and truckloads of float to maximize
hangtime and to put you back on the ground safely.
Great Upwind Performance
- The Leopard’s high aspect ratio not only results
in a very fast kite down the line. But it also offers
upwind performance similar to what is found in latest
generation race kites. This high speed and the possibility
to ride at sharper courses than the competition makes
the Leopard a serious contender in snowkite racing.
turning speed - Normally a high Aspect
Ratio makes a kite fast through the air at the cost of a
lower turning speed. In the Leopard the balance between
high flying speed and quick turning has been carefully balanced
to give you the best of both worlds.
