CRONIX adaptive airfoil 3D animation

Posted: Feb 12, 2014

A 3D short animation showing how the adaptive airfoil feature on the Flysurfer CRONIX l.e.i. works.
Important to mention is that the adaptive airfoil technology works automatically, in every setup the rider chooses to ride.

Profile adjustment – exactly when you want it – this is the idea behind the Adaptive Airfoil System in the Flysurfer Cronix. Every sailor trims his sail with increased bow in lighter winds and flatter for stronger winds. Airplane wings adjust their flaps.

Previously, leading edge inflatable kites were limited to one profile only. The Cronix makes it possible for the first time to adjust the profile of the kite during flight. This is possible through a minimalistic trailing edge bridle which has large effect. Especially noticeable on the excellent low end of the Cronix.

A knot system on the kite quickly adjusts the amount of effect the trailing edge bridle has on the kite. But that is not the only advantage: Increased control of the trailing edge also helps enormously with relaunch, whether in light winds or by reverse launch.
