The PLKB Gambit is our new allround kite that gets you going instantly. It feels direct and predictable in everything you do. Power when you want it and lots of depower.
We wanted to create a kite that is suitable for all riders, From beginner to winner. A kite with big air potential, wave potential and stimulating a fast learning curve. A kite that you can always use, no matter what you’re going to do.
The high wing profile, big wing tips and Arc shaped bridles give the Gambit predictable and direct power with a lower cruising speed but enough lift for serious jumping. The power delivery is super stable while steering is fast and easy.
3-STRUT HYBRID SLE
The balanced Hybrid SLE shape of the Gambit is design to be stiff, stable and lightweight creating precise and responsive handling with a consistent power delivery. Its lightweight 3 strut frame offers maximum stability and improving its wind range. The Open-C shape gives the Gambit a freestyle component with consistent steering while the relative low Aspect Ratio gives the Gambit a super speedy water relaunch.
HIGH DEPOWER BRIDLE SYSTEM
The Gambit has a single Pulley high depower fork bridle. The Leading Edge is supported by 4 bridle
with a V shape creating more depower abilities, lighter steering and better gust handling, keeping a ride.
DOUBLE STITCHED MULTI SEGMENT LEADING EDGE
Multiple reinforcements improve the durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The leading edge has been reinforced along the entire seam to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding in the waves. This makes it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market. Kevlar reinforcements on the strut ends protect against friction wear.
The front and back line connections have been colour coded to allow you to easily and quickly set up the kite. You will immediately notice if they haven’t correctly set up front and back line connections. The bridle loops are colour coded and ‘knot to loop’ to help kiters get their kite in the air safely.
FIT ALL VALVE
All our kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze. You won’t have to spend hours and hours pumping your kites anymore. You will be able to ride in the perfect wind in no time.
ADJUSTABLE BAR PRESSURE
Most PLKB kites come with adjustable back line settings to adjust the bar feel of the kite. Moving th
towards the trailing edge will make the steering pressure lighter but will require more movement o
is super easy, just detach the back bridle line and reattach it to your preferred setting to have more
steering movement. This is a personal decision based on your riding style and experience.
Every PLKB kite was reinforced with bullet proof Kevlar bumpers. These bumpers are filled with lig
absorption layer for crashes or when the kite accidentally got dragged over land. This way your kite
the durability of your kite so you can play longer.
Because the canopy is being cut using computer controlled lasers, the profile of the PLKB kites has become super smooth, limiting
all wrinkles from forming in the canopy. This makes the kite more efficient and improves the flight characteristics and become
more stable, direct and responsive.
