The 2021 Hyper – Go big or go home.
With the 2021 Hyper we continued improving what has been a trend in kites in recent years: strength to weight ratio. The 2021 Hyper 12m kite is 0,4 kg lighter than in 2020 yet the strength and rigidity of the air frame and canopy are the same. The 2021 Hyper 12m weights 4 kgs or 0,33 kg per square meter, which is very light for a five strut kite. This year, we also bring a light wind version of the Hyper in 15m size. Incredibly, the 2021 Hyper 15m weights 4,2 kgs only, which is less than a 2020 Hyper 12m (4,4 kgs).
The reduced weight and same strength were achieved by:
A new bridle system which reinforces the kite better and adds to strength of the air frame.
Reduced number of panels on the kite. Again, we joined more panels together.
New lighter trailing edge with two layers of Ripstop instead of heavyweight material.
In addition, we moved the back lines attachments directly to the leading edge, which puts less pressure on the canopy and creates a much more direct response and faster turning of the kite.
The leading edge seam was reinforced with an additional layer of Dacron, but at the same time, we reduced Dacron covering the struts on the canopy, as there is now less pressure on the canopy.
As a cherry on the top, we introduced a new Airlock valve which is simple, quick and secure to use.
The reduced weight of the kite, new bridle and new back line attachment points position result in much better relaunch, better low end, less bar pressure and faster turning. These aspects were all improved, while the hangtime and lift of the Hyper stayed untouched and we all know how amazing it is.
Delta Bow Shape
This shape is a mixture of Delta and Bow shapes taking advantages of both. It offers lots of depower and boosting power on demand, automatic relaunch and maximum airtime. The Delta Bow shape is easy to control with low to medium bar pressure. This shape is ideal for riders looking for powered freeriding, big air jumps and hooked in freestyle.
5 Strut Design
The five strut design creates a very strong and sturdy frame for the canopy and is much needed for kites with longer wingspan, such as Delta Bow shaped kites. For high performance big air kites, like the Hyper, it is crucial for the kite to keep its shape and this is best achieved with the support of five struts.
Heavy duty Dacron frame is the backbone of our kites. Without sacrificing strength, we were able to take our multiple reinforcements inside the kite, which allowed us to use more dacron on the canopy without adding more weight to the kite. 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.
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 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.
