Big Air, Hang Time, and Horizontal Pull in the Kiteloops.

Intermediate to advanced all-round versatility.

Unhooked performance.

The all-new UNION III has been re-designed from the bottom up to improve key areas. The UNION III delivers even more lift and hangtime when going for Big Air, along with quicker and more responsive steering.

The shape has been refined to sit slightly further forward in the window whilst retaining the light and ultra-responsive steering.

A new wing-tip design prevents back stalling while the increased linear power delivery has made it even more suitable for freeriding, freestyle and wave riders alike.

The UNION III is the natural step up for the Lithium user looking for increased jumping performance and quicker depower response, or for the freestyle rider wanting unhooked performance with the usability of increased depower and a more forgiving feel.

 

Lower aspect ratio, with a higher tip chord to center chord ratio – This makes the kite more compact and solid / stable. It also helps turning speed and response, the longer wingtip chord gives the kite better steering.

Instant depower – instead of being locked in more like the lithium, the new union has a “quick to switch off” depower. Great for landing strapless freestyle moves. Dropping you back on your board when you need it to.

More overall sweep – Improved relaunch and more gradual depower.

Shorter center chord length – better jumping / vertical lift on the jump.

Finer center profile – allowing the kite to sit further forward in the window, which is better for unhooking and quick depower.

Bigger area in the wingtips – as per higher tip to chord ratio – Faster steering.

More compact bridle due to shorter wingtip span – quicker more reactive depower
