Specifically Designed For Freeride, Freestyle, Boosting, Wave riding And Foiling.
The Stratus is for riders who are looking for one type of kite to cover a wide range of kiteboarding disciplines. It doesn’t matter if you’re out boosting, doing tricks, foiling or wave riding the Stratus excels at whatever you throw at it. It’s a true all-around design. The Stratus excels in a wide range of wind conditions. Being very smooth thru the gusts and having generous de-power.
Here’s what’s new with the Stratus 1.1
The Stratus 1.1 has increased stability due to optimized paneling which creates a stiffer stronger and more responsive kite. The new tapered wingtips give it a cleaner look and a smoother power profile in the air. Profile & bridle tweaks create more power through the kite. The result? The same great Stratus feel, but with more power, better jumping abilities and a refined build.
We have also added a much-requested 9M to the range.
Available Sizes 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14

Adjustable bridle attachments points
Don’t get locked into using your kite for only one discipline. Adjustable bridle attachment points allow you to tune the kite for Freestyle, Surf, Foil or Freeriding. Fine tune your kite to suit your particular preferences and style.
Square rigid tips
Squaring off the kite tip and having larger diameter leading edge makes the structure more rigid which allows the CONNECT bar and line to to have a positive transfer to your kite resulting in increased feedback and faster turning. The larger leading edge tips also makes the STRATUS extremely easy to relaunch. The tips float higher and the response from your bar inputs are more effective.
Quick and easy inflate valve
No more fiddling looking for the right attachment on your pump to inflate your kite or losing session time because you lost your pump attachments. The end of any pump hose fits directly onto the valve for an easy high volume air transfer. One less thing to worry about.
Multi attachments points for custom tuning, customizable bar pressure and turning speed
The multi attachment point option allows you to adjust your bar pressure, effect your turning speed and customize your CONNECT bar feel to exactly what you want. Every rider has a personal preference when it comes to bar pressure and turning speed. Find yours.
Double Ripstop Canopy
The Double Ripstop Canopy material is a special reinforcing manufacturing technique that makes your canopy resistant to tearing and ripping while offering a favourable strength-to-weight ratio. In the event of a rip or tear, double Ripstop will reduce the possibility of the rip spreading allowing you to make it back to the beach and limit damage repair.
3 Strut light weight design
Having our rigid leading edge design and square tips allowed us to only need 3 struts to maintain the desired canopy shape thus reducing weight while maintaining the perfect aerodynamic shape. Less is more.
Contoured trailing edge for improved aerodynamics
Contoured trailing edges enabled us to reduce induced drag and reduce weight. Less Drag to Lift ratio makes for a more efficient lifting aerofoil. Reduced drag helps the upwind ability of the kite.
Open Arc shape and higher aspect
Having a Open Arc shape increase the lift surface area giving the kite the maximum lift and efficiency. The surface area aspect ratio is being fully utilized but the Open Arc offering maximum lift and stabilizing the kite.
The line deflector is designed to prevent your kite lines from getting caught up in the wing tips during launching and water starts.
