Crazyfly 2023 Sculp - FREERIDE/FREESTYLE/FOIL
The new 2023 Sculp is a do-it-all kite with a sporty feel. It is a true allround performer across multiple disciplines. Whether you like old school, freestyle, kite loops, big air, or foiling, the new Sculp will deliver.
The Sculp is a Hybrid Delta Bow shape. This shape takes advantage of both Delta and Bow and results in the most versatile and easy to use kite we ever made. From great hangtime to amazing kite loops to unhooked pop and slack with pivotal turning, this shape is a true do-it-all platform.
This year, the Sculp has been fine tuned to work best with the new Savvy bar. The bridle is completely new resulting in lighter bar pressure, more stability and faster turning. The new bridle features two additional attachment points to the leading edge on each side of the kite. The first added line on the leading edge near the wingtip is mostly active during relaunches and the kite virtually wants to fly up by itself in the edge of the window. The second line is attached to the steering flying line and creates another attachment point on the wingtip of the leading edge. This further supports the wingtip structure, so the kite is more stable in gusty conditions and when overpowered. This line also offers two settings of the kite: soft and hard. Selecting the soft setting knot, the Sculp has less bar pressure, turns slower and is more forgiving. On the hard setting knot, the bar pressure increases, the kite is more reactive, feels sportier and turns faster.
With the combination of the new Savvy bar and the new bridle there is constant feedback of the kite felt on the bar, so you are always in complete control of the kite. The Sculp has gradual power delivery and smooth sheeting. The Sculp inspires confidence in kite loops with improved kite loop recovery and more pivotal turning radius.
The low end of the Sculp is absolutely impressive thanks to TerTex material. TerTex replaced Dacron in strategic areas and results in a stronger kite structure, yet lighter overall kite weight. Optimized weight allows for bigger wind range and improved low end performance of the Sculp. The Sculp really does it all.
The 2023 Sculp – One world, one kite.

Hybrid Delta Bow shape - This is a brand new shape where our designers mixed aspects of Flat Delta and Bow shapes. The Hybrid Delta Bow takes advantage of both worlds and results in the most versatile and easy to use kite we ever made. From great hangtime to amazing kiteloops to unhooked pop and slack with pivotal turning, this shape is a true do it all platform.
3 Strut Design - Reduces the weight of the kite and improves performance. Due to the compact shape of the kite, and high quality of materials, the kite has optimal strength to weight ratio and canopy tension with three struts only.
Dacron frame - With introduction of TerTex material, the Dacron frame has been completely redesigned. Heave duty Dacron leading edge and wintip reinforcements create the backbone of all CrazyFly kites. The heavy duty Dacron frame ensures the best strength to weight ratio and makes the kite much more rigid, correctly shaped, stronger and durable. This results in amazing flight stability, more dynamic reactions to rider input and explosive boosts.
TerTex - TerTex material is used on all 2023 CrazyFly kites. It is two times stronger than our Triplex triple ripstop and at the same time TerTex is forty percent lighter than the Dacron material we use. Applied on all side struts, wingtips and over the central strut of all 2023 CrazyFly kites, TerTex radically reduces kite weight. Lighter kites have better low end, move faster through the air, are easier to relaunch and turn quicker. TerTex also increases the wind range, as low end performance is increased, because the lighter kite is still able to fly in lighter winds.
Triplex - Brand new and exclusive to CrazyFly, we introduced Triplex, the most advanced ripstop material on the market. Triplex has by far the best strength to weight ratio and with triple coating its durability is unmatched. The coating protects the fabric from UV rays, salt and abrasive objects, such as sand. Triple coating and three ripstop yarns ensure the lowest possible elongation and deterioration of the material till date.
Arptex - Arptex sits at the top of abrasion resistant polyamide textiles. This high tech fabric made in Italy can handle plenty of abuse without getting damaged. The official number is 100 000 contacts with abrasive surface before the material starts deteriorating. This is why we selected Arptex as the most suitable material to protect CrazyFly kites in the most abused areas and increase the size of the Arptex Shields.
