Fat Lady – 4th GEN
Kite size: 17
Aaaaaah those light wind days. What’s better than going to the beach on a calm day, setting up a towel on the warm sand, getting out your Fat Lady kite and ripping through the air with tremendous power. The 4th generation Fat Lady has even more upwind to help you fly through the air and add new high-level tricks to your collection, courtesy of its extreme quick-turning and responsiveness abilities. The Max Flow quick-inflation system and the Cross-Fiber Ripstop for better durability make sure you can keep your focus on what’s important– going out there and shredding the water with a big smile on your face.
The 3-strut kite design has proven itself since the day Blade introduced it in 2008,
enhancing the responsiveness and turning speed for any size kite.
All Blade kites are designed to be super reactive and quick turning.
This is vital in order to progress as riders and define one’s riding style.
Whether the kite dives onto the water or tumbles through the waves, it doesn’t matter.
The exclusive kite design forces the wingtips out of the water and to the edge of the window.
Virtually no work is needed to get back up and riding.
Turning axis is generated along the LE between center strut and wingtip,
resulting in efficient balance between turning speed and power delivery.
This is a key performance feature for all-around kites.
The profile shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the wingtips.
This rider-conscious design provides the optimal performance characteristics for the different stages of flight
Surprisingly, the diameter of the LE is nearly the same diameter as the Trigger 12m!
This design characteristic drastically reduces drag forces,
making this light wind kite impressively quick and responsive
The all new cross-fiber ripstop is a newly developed double weaved fabric, which provides your kite with double the strength and durability. An additional layer of coating increases the canopy’s resistance and prevents it from wearing out.
Bridle Attachment Point
Internally constructed, the leading edge has twice as many reinforcement patches.
That means larger LE impact loads resistance and additional protection from the constant wear and abrasion
We know you like to ride hard. That’s why our kites have 25% more Insignia tape in the delicate areas surrounding the LE.
You can be confident this kite will endure even the toughest impact.
Making a kite both light and strong is key for the kite’s performance.
We achieved this by applying a very strong 170g Teijin Dacron for added rigidity in primary areas like leading edge and using lighter 160g Dacron HPE for less vulnerable sections.
The LE seam is sealed with three layers of stitching, double layered Insignia Tape reinforcement and a final protective Dacron seam.
Our freshly designed molded LE guards are lighter, more aerodynamic and effectively protect the kite from all your outrageous wipeouts.
The specially-designed valve pieces on the one-pump system are 100% foolproof. Trust us, you’ll be pumped up and ready to ride in no time.
The all new inflating system makes for a 44% quicker inflation to get you on the water as fast as possible.
