There is a new kite brand that is focusing exclusively on racing kites and boards. The brand, ASV Performance has made a big splash by recently announcing the addition of American Adam Koch to the race team.
ASV XR race kite
"The XR kite has been developed focusing on the simplicity of use that naturally allows any racers to be faster. Upwind and speed are major points that make the XR an incredibly fast kite, but we made sure that the design it took to develop these qualities didn't limit us in developing all other key quality such bar feeling, steering speed, acceleration after tacks and floatation during jibes. What we really wanted to create was a fast wing that would inspire confidence in all conditions and that would help the racer to perform his best with all the fundamentals involved in Kite racing."
Sizes Available: 17.5, 14, 11, and 9M.
