LF brand manager Gary Siskar Tech Talking about the 2015 Solo!
Music: “Seasons” by Anitek (www.soundcloud.com/anitek)
The SOLO came from a dream. This dream turned into a vision of designing a perfectly balanced ultra light, simple high performance kite while at the same time keeping stability, easy re-launch, and durability that all the Liquid Force kites have been know for over the years.
The design team started by working intensively on numerous Strut-less kite designs which took several months of testing and countless prototypes. These kites proved to be extremely lightweight with a great amount of raw power and possessed a very direct feel. Although these results proved to be successful there appeared multiple compromises in the performance that over shadowed the benefits of the Strut-less kite design that we were simply not willing to accept.
The SOLO evolved through multiple iterations from half struts to battens that eventually led to a very thin, low profile center strut. Our dream that became a vision is now a reality called the SOLO, An ultra light weight, single strut design that offers unparallel efficiency, stability and wind range of any kite on the market today with the added benefit of pack ability for travel. We are excited to introduce the SOLO, an all terrain kite that can be summed up in 3 words: simple, powerful, fun
