LEGEND
Gray = Inflatable Frame (LE + Struts) = Code 155P, 142 g/m2
Red = Fusion Canopy = 95 g/m2
Blue = TE dacron = Code 155P, 142 g/m2
Yellow = Anti Scuff, PVC
Cyan = Batten
Green = TE reinforcement = Code 155P with monofilm

Fusion Frame; the 52 g/m2 canopy is sewn in the Fusion Frame to make the kite more durable.

At LE side the canopy is sewn to the Fusion frame which is further reinforced with an insignia tape before the canopy is sewn to the LE.

At TE side the canopy is sewn to the Fusion frame which is then sewn to dacron which, at the end, is reinforced with insignia. The final 8mm is then folded creating a stiff, strong and wear resistant 2 layer dacron+insignia TE.

The Ventum Smart (closing) Seam is unique. Using M18 thread (thicker than standard), each segment of the closing seam is seperately closed with 3cm overlap on both sides using the same holes. This method is more work but the result is that the main seam is double strength where the LE segments join, without adding more holes in the material.

The industry standard method is to use M20 thread and sew tip to tip. On segment joints the thread is known to breaks sometimes and therefore a double seam is sewn behind the main seam. This does however not prevent the main thread from breaking, it just acts as a backup seam when the main seam breaks.

  • Thickness of 80µm.
  • Supplied by Covestro, Germany.
  • Made of a UV stabilized Ether based TPU.
  • The bladder seals are HF welded.
  • The bladder valves are HF welded using a German glue foil for consistant bonding and quality.

  • Inflate the kite in one shot by just using the Direct Connect Inflate.
  • Less effort on inflating due to large diameter valves and tubes.
  • Fast deflate when packaging.

  • The scuff guards provide the optimal wear resistance on the most exposed areas of the kite.

  • Allows packing the kite in one go.
  • Avoids frontal sand blasts during packing.
  • Keeps the “Direct Connect Inflate” free from sand.
  • 7 – 2.5 kg
  • 8 – 2.7 kg
  • 9 – 2.9 kg
  • 10 – 3.1 kg
  • 11 – 3.2 kg
  • 12 – 3.4 kg
  • 15 – 3.8 kg

  • The pulley on the main front bridle provides extra depower.
  • Gusts are better absorbed making your ride more comfortable.
  • The pulley allows the shoulders to open more enhancing high jumps.
  • The dyneema bridle line over which the pulley runs has an extra line spliced inside to maintain a rounder shape reducing wear.
  • The spliced in line is long enough to allow the bridle line to be turned around multiplying its lifetime.
  • The pulley is made of Nylon 6 with micro teflon capsules for reduced friction.

  • The optional pulley-less bridle is for riders that prefer a more C kite feeling while maintaining the benefits of a bridle.
  • The kite feels more direct and responsive and the arc is more rigid.
  • This provides more aggressive megaloops and enhanced freestyle characteristics (slack) but requires better technical skills to boost high.

The Xcite V2 has an integrated NFC tag which is programmed on the Booomtag platform.

  • WHAT ITS NOT ?
    • It is not a GPS tracker to find your stuff.
    • It is not a chip that collects data from you to sell to third parties.
    • It is not an electronic device that contains a battery.
  • WHAT IS IT THEN?
    • A NFC tag can be read with any modern smartphone.
    • Each tag has a unique identifier just like a serial number on the products.
    • In this case the tag is programmed for the Booomtag platform.
    • After scanning the tag you will see information regarding the product like, name, version plus, if you want, user defined information.
    • You can register your product for free on the Booomtag platform under your free account with all your other products that have the tag.
    • You first get privacy settings which you can adjust at any time.
  • WHAT DOES IT DO FOR YOU?
    • If your Ventum product gets stolen or lost, you can indicate this in your account. As of then the tag will not show the standard information but a clear message that the product is reported as lost with the action buttons you choose (call, sms, mail).
    • Others cannot get your name, number, or address by reading the tag. There are situations and professions where that may be preferred.
    • You can show ICE (in case or emergency) numbers when someone reads the tag.
    • You can show important medical information when someone reads the tag.
    • You can receive information regarding recalls or other safety information.
    • If you give permission, you will receive information about upcoming upgrades, replacement offers and maintenance advice.
  • WHAT DOES IT DO FOR VENTUM?
    • The tag gives each product a unique identification number which helps to identify affected products in case of manufacturing defects.
    • The tag allows us to stay in touch! Ventum does not send general newsletters by mail but with your Booomtag account you can register to receive information and offers related to your products and situation.

  • The Xcite V3 offers 3 options to increase/decrease bar pressure and turning speed.

  • Line deflectors reduce the chance on line wraps.

  • Connect your pump without adapters.
  • Provides an optimum airflow in combination with our Max Flow Single Pump System.
  • Can be used as deflate, although we recomment using the Wing Tip Storm Deflate.

  • Frontline pigtails end with knots.
  • Backline pigtails end with loops.
  • Left side pigtails are red.
  • Right side pigtails are blue.

FEATURES

The 52 g/m2 canopy is sewn in a Fusion Frame to make the kite more durable.

  • 142 g/m2 Code155p dacron (red in illustration) is used in the wingtips and TE.
  • 95 g/m2 Fusion canopy (gray in illustration) is used at LE and as intermediate layer in the TE.
  • Battens in the wingtips prevent canopy flutter in loops.

At LE side the canopy is sewn to the Fusion frame which is further reinforced with an insignia tape before the canopy is sewn to the LE.

At TE side the canopy is sewn to the Fusion frame which is then sewn to dacron which is at the end reinforced with (first) single layer insignia and final 8mm with double layer insignia.
