The Best Kahoona V3 delivers the perfect mix of freeride, new school and wave riding performance. The V3 combines rock solid stability, smooth power delivery, endless depower and precise handling, making it the perfect kite for advancing your riding level, regardless of your preferred riding style.
The first two generations of Kahoonas were praised for their surprising hang-time and great low end power. In this third generation, we've been able to extract additional high wind stability and turning speed, while reducing bar pressure. To do so, the Kahoona v3 is made with new, specially developed high performance materials and improved profiling which have energized its performance.
When wave riding, the Kahoona V3 serves up its best attributes, combining incredible downwind drift, precise steering response and huge depower, whether you're going down the line or being chased by the white foam close out.
The Kahoona V3 allows you to perform the latest unhooked new school tricks. The effortless re-launch motivates you to learn new moves and gives supreme confidence to wave riders who simply have to be able to re-launch their kites before the next set comes in... it's the perfect partner to use with any of our surfboards.
The construction of the Kahoona V3 is both bomb-proof and lightweight at the same time. The introduction of a new 3.5m size makes building the perfect quiver of kites for all riders and all conditions easier than ever before. With exceptional handling, performance and practical safety features, the Kahoona V3 is the perfect kite for improving your riding level, regardless of your preferred riding style and your current riding level.
KAHOONA V3: Advanced progression
The Delta canopy design of the Kahoona V3 allows for a unique combination of exceptional low end power, high depower and maximum stability. The Kahoona blends favorable traits from both C-kites and SLE kites to provide an exceptional riding experience for kitesurfers of all skill levels.
The leading edge shape and highly swept back wingtips of the Kahoona allowed the R&D team to remove the center strut from the airframe: with one less strut in the air the Kahoona is able to turn faster, with less drag and fly in less wind than would be possible with a 5 strut layout.
A short leading edge bridle provides exceptional shape support and effective distribution of canopy loads across the entire kite: the Kahoona V3 has stability that will encourage you to push your limits. VP2's innovative pivoting design provides maximum depower from minimum bar travel making kite control simpler than ever.
New high performance fiber coatings on both Dacron and Rip-stop materials maximize strength and increase handling responsiveness. With reduced material elongation under load, the Nemesis HP-V3 is the crispest handling and most responsive Nemesis we've ever designed.
As simple as it sounds, using a brand new needle every time you start to build a new leading edge isn't standard practice in the industry - but it's the best way to build the strongest kite possible and that's why we build the Nemesis HP this way.
Some riders love them, some hate them - we let you make the choice whether to use them or not. Simply flip around the pigtails on the front lines of your Nemesis HP to convert it to kook-proof mode. The front flying lines of the Redline Performance Bar and bridle attachments of the HP-V3 are designed to work either way.
Each strut bladder comes with a small drawstring that passes through a covered aperture in the head of the strut casing. It's a little detail, but it makes replacing a failed strut easier than ever.
Kevlar-reinforced airframe construction for maximum precision, durability and minimum weight. All leading edge and strut joints on your kite are laser cut, 3D shaped and Kevlar tape-reinforced. Sure it takes a little longer and costs a little more to build kites this way, but there is no better way to connect the leading edge to the struts.
By placing the LE attachment points on the inside of the kite rather than on the exposed outside of the leading edge, we've been able to reduce the potential for snagging seam edges and fraying the LE Dacron. For snow-kiting and All-terrain riding it is the obvious choice.
The new Flat Pack LE barrel seams contribute to the strongest LE construction we've ever made. Removing the overlap between segments has created a stronger and lighter LE construction with enhanced stiffness and torsion load handling for even greater responsiveness and durability.
Crashing your kite is a fact of life. That's why the perimeter of each canopy segment in every kite we make is supported with a unique reinforcement zone: isolating the canopy from impact and crash loads. CFT is a unique approach to the tasks of distributing shock loads across the canopy of your kite and you'll only find it on Best kites.
Allows you to adjust the turning speed and bar pressure to your personal preference. Dial in back line tension for ultimate big air ability and steering responsiveness for maximum kite-looping pleasure.
The tip-to-tip leading edge seam on all of our kites is triple stitched with a full length tape closure on the outside. Each overlap is backstitched to ensure exceptional durability and integrity. It's one of the reasons why Best kites have such a good reputation for durability.
All of our kites benefit from our exclusive CFT reinforced trailing edge. Adding CFT to the leechline helps provide razor-sharp turning response and unmatched durability. CFT helps reduce the damage incurred by leaving kites flapping in the wind.
Reinforced, abrasion-resistant leading edge elbow patches provide greater resistance against handling and launch/land damage. All-terrain use and snow kiting has never looked so attractive.
Surf Tough describes how we build in the absolute highest quality with every kite that we make. There are no shortcuts to great performance and lasting durability. We take pride in each and every kite that we make and that's why you will find Surf Tough features on every one of our inflatable kites.
