3 Strutted Kite with extreme versatility in medium to high wind ranges.
The Freewave is a 100% New Kite. Made for use that ranges from TT Freestyle to heavy winded foiling and even strapless Surf!!
Compared to the Unik, its uses are as vast, but inverted and geared more towards high wind ranges. If the Unik is a Foil Kite that is successful in TT, the Freewave is a TT Kite that can hold her own in Foil. One is super light and the other has super hold.
The manoeuvrability of the Freewave is one of its strong points, she turns fast but cuts clean while doing it. The profile holds tight, without excessively pinching the tips, and maintains its fluidity within the turn. You can practically turn her in place or get her to turn super fast when gliding.
The feeling on the Bar is super light : smooth and feline.
Finally, her behaviour in high wind is extremely reassuring, very stable, the profiles hold is exemplary, she stands tall and doesn’t flinch under gusts and her de-power is ultra efficient.
The Freewave is built with the most Premium Materials on the Market : Double Ripstop T9670 Teijin SPI, Skeleton in DP175LL, BladdersTPU 0,1mm.
Numerous reinforcements are made and placed intelligently to confront difficult conditions and navigation in the waves.
Kite size and wind range :
Based on your level of kiteboarding, your size, the water conditions and which board you have (foil/surfkite/TT), the wind range goes either up or down. The Freewave range is overall thought out, as a quiver, for when you are either overpowered to swap for one size smaller or underpowered to swap for one size bigger, to ride confortably no questions asked.
The construction of a consistent Freewave range goes by kite sizes that are very close together for small kites and further away for big kites.
We must remind you, Kiteboarding is a high risk sport. Never go out when the conditions supercede your skill capacity/weight. Never Underestimate Nature. Never practice alone. The aforementioned Wind Ranges are advisory information only and only you are able to decide on any given day whether you enter the water or not. Please, show great caution and respect the inherent safety guidelines while practicing Kite, thank you.

GONG Kite Technology :
The GONG Kite Freewave is made in one of the largest Kite Factories in the world and meets the quality standards of the finest Kites in the world.
It is constructed with the greastest care. The Panels are cut by CNC and entirely assembled by hand by the best workers in the Kite Industry.
The materials that we use are amongst the finest. We search for the performance for sure but also we look for endurance and for materials that are time tested.
Bridles made from Dyneema and Spectra with Ronstan Pullys.
High quality double rip-stop, Teijin T9670 (high stiffness, long lasting performances).
Leading Edge, struts, and tips made with Dacron Dimension Polyan DP175LL (the most rigid on the market and also the most costly).
Struts Bumpers in EVA for protection against friction.
Reinforcement patches in PVC KN200 along the Leading Egde and Struts extremities.
Bladders TPU 0,1mm for hardcore reliability.
A reminder, at the Kites weight - whomever the manufacturer - will vary following 3 main factors :
The more reinforced the Kite is with concern to material thickness, the higher the weight will be, but also the higher the resistance to crashes and also the longevity of your Kite.
The SPI is waterproofed by a coating process which preserves its performance in use. The thicker the coating, the heavier the fabric becomes, and also the better it ages over time session quantities. For the record, the exposure of your Kite to UV and treated water will gradually destroy this coating.
Our Kites are equipped with Bladders that are 100 microns thick, which is among the thickest on the market. We could easily descend to 60 microns but this would substantially diminish the Kites resistance to us : Nosedives, Kitemares, crashes, overinflation, etc…
