// ADAPTIVE AIRFOIL TECHNOLOGY
// SELF LAUNCHING SYSTEM
// FREE FLOW INFLATION SYSTEM
"Powerfull direct steering, excellent for freestyle and massive loops."
Profile adjustment – like sailing or on airplane wings – this is the idea behind the Adaptive Airfoil System. For the first time in kite history, a minimalistic trailing edge bridle makes it possible, to adjust the profile of the kite during flight. Especially noticeable on the excellent low end or when relaunching.
Whether wakestyler or freerider – through a simple bar force adjustment option, the characteristics of the kite can be adjusted to the individual riding style. Whether a little more bar pressure and a little less hangtime, or the other way around, change quickly to your desire.
With the Self Launcher, we are offering you a tool to easily solo-launch the CRONIX. Position the kite at the edge of the wind window, connect the sandbag (which comes with the kite) and place this on the ground. Once the kite lines are tensioned the Self Launcher automatically releases safely at just the right moment.
Free Flow Inflation
We had to make pumping easier, so we developed a new valve – with a larger opening for increased air intake and easy operation. To complete the system we added a R.E.D Pump. This pump is not only smoother and more durable, it also switches from double hub to single hub under high pressure to ensure effortless use.
Each cloth, each line and each component has been tested extensively. Maintenance-free low-friction-rings replace pulleys on the front lines, reinforcements are implemented wherever viable, and so much more. When it comes to materials and components, we always go for quality and functionality over price.
The adjustment features of the CRONIX have enabled us to create a true allrounder, however it still is a pleasantly smooth and uncomplicated kite to fly, with a lot of on-demand potential. Relaunching is easy for novices even in the lightest breeze. Although the kite can hold its own in the waves with purebred wave kites, this does not mean that jumping potential needs to take a back seat.
CRONIX … a new era begins
With the CRONIX, we are once again breaking new ground. The Adaptive Airfoil System generates a considerable increase in low end power. The trailing edge bridle creates more lift through the curvature of the kite profile when powering up, simultaneously helping relaunch, whether by reverse start or by pulling a steering line. The effectiveness of the trailing edge bridle can be adjusted within seconds on the kite, just like the bar forces – so that every rider has the right kite to match his/her preferences.
Fast kiteloops, breathtaking freestyle tricks, hard cut-backs off the lip, sporty flight charachteristics and an enormous wind range…It is crystal clear: The adjustment features of the CRONIX have enabled us to create a true allrounder, however it is not just a trusty companion for every kind of kitesurfing. The CRONIX is a pleasantly smooth and uncomplicated kite to fly, with a lot of on-demand potential. Relaunching is easy for novices even in the lightest winds, cruisers will immediately feel at home with the CRONIX and wake- & freestylers have the ultimate drug at their disposal. Last but not least – although the kite can hold its own in the waves with purebred wave kites, this does not mean that jumping potential needs to take a back seat – the CRONIX is a true crossover kite.

Actual use will vary depending on your weight, skill level, board size and the wind conditions on the water or land. When choosing a kite size, always use common sense and always choose a smaller size if you are not sure, especially when using the kite on land.
