The new 2022 Sculp is an accessible do-it-all kite with a sporty feel. A true allround performer across all disciplines. Whether you like old school, freestyle, kite loops, big air or foil, the new Sculp will deliver.
Hybrid Delta Bow shape takes advantage of both worlds and results in the most versatile and easy to use kite we ever made. Light at the bar with a very intuitive feel, gradual pull and large depower.
With an eight point short fixed bridle the Sculp is fine tuned for kite loops. It turns quick with a small turning radius, good tension in the lines, and a nice catch after a kite loop. Combining the new shape and bridle, the Sculp offers good amounts of pop, drift, and slack in the lines for unhooking.
The Sculp has had a major makeover in 2021 with a completely new shape that moved the kite a class up in performance. This year, our designers implemented a brand new lightweight TerTex material. 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. TerTex is applied in strategic areas of the kite in order to save weight, but at the same time, maintain a rigid and durable frame of the kite. Our designers found TerTex perfectly suitable for all struts, wingtips of the canopy and canopy reinforcement over the central strut. In these areas, TerTex replaced Dacron and for example 2022 Sculp 12m kite is 0,3 kg lighter than the 2021 version.
This makes a big difference in how the kite performs. Lighter kites move faster through the air, are easier to relaunch and turn quicker. It also increases the wind range, as low end performance is increased, because the kite is still able to fly in lighter winds.
With the weight reduction the bridle needed to be redesigned to squeeze the best possible performance and take full advantage of the weight savings. The canopy is again more refined with reduced number of panels.
