Engineered with freestyle riders in mind, the Hantuᴵᴵᴵ offers a crisp, connected, and lively feel — precision performance for Masters of Style.
Designed to accelerate your progression however you ride, the Hantuᴵᴵᴵ is a versatile 3-strut hybrid that offers it all: powerful precision, direct response, explosive lift, long hang time, smooth glide, quick turning, massive range, ultra-stability, effortless relaunch, and a world-class no-stall design.
Suited for intermediate to pro kiters, the Hantuᴵᴵᴵ will boost you to the moon, help you throw unhooked tricks with ease, slay rails and kickers, turn spectator’s heads with gigantic megaloops, and drop jaws with floaty, old-school board-offs. Tremendously versatile, the Hantuᴵᴵᴵ features two modes of setup:
Freestyle Mode — Featuring light bar pressure, tight turns, maximum depower, smooth power development, and high steering sensitivity.
Wakestyle Mode — Featuring medium bar pressure, increased kite feedback, aggressive kite loops, maximum pop, less depower, and less pull unhooked.
Offering a consistent and smooth pull, the 4-line Hantuᴵᴵᴵ delivers user-friendly handling, adjustable bar pressure, huge depower. For wakestyle warriors, this kite delivers the coveted “moment of slack” — a short delay in power after loading and popping off the water — which makes handlepassing easier than ever.
Utilizing hassle-free block pulleys on the bridle, the lightweight Hantuᴵᴵᴵ also features a new Dual Inflation & Deflation Valve plus a wide-mouth wingtip dump valve for quick and easy setup and breakdown.
Better yet, the Hantuᴵᴵᴵ offers excellent upwind reach and low-wind performance, and is guaranteed to expedite your progression. Engineered and constructed to the industry’s highest standards, what sets this kite apart is that it performs on par with the best of the best — but without the inflated cost.

Sakai Techfibre (Japan) is home in the top end acrobatic paraglider and spinnaker fabrics which are manufactured exclusively by Sakai Ovex in Japan. For their SBS101 double ripstop kite canopy they use high tenacity polyester yarn manufactured by Toray Japan exclusively for Techfibre. Toray Japan is a multinational corporation specialized in polymer chemistry. This makes SBS101 the ONLY full Japanese canopy on the market. The canopy production is based on a new process that gives multiple benefits over conventional canopy. The quality consistency from batch to batch is of a level we have not seen before. Special attention is taken to avoid “chalking” of the canopy after some use, a visual problem seen on many kites on the market. Rather than one sided coating, SBS101 has adopted a double sided multilayer coating technology for longer airproof canopy
