Innovation has always been one of Flysurfer’s highest aspirations when it comes to product development. This self-set aim motivates the development team surrounding Andi Hanrieder every day to create new ideas. One of these truly innovative products is the new boardline, FlySplit. The all new FlySplit combines the opportunity to dissemble the board in the middle with the performance of a normal kiteboard. This is the crucial feature that wins extra space when traveling, whilst maintaining that the kiteboard performs just as well as a Radical or Flydoor.
// Save when traveling
Especially helpful in these times of ever increasing excess baggage fees, charged by airlines on route to your favorite kite destinations, the FlySplit gives you the opportunity to dissemble your kiteboard easily and quickly so that it fits into your travel-bag. This innovation ensures that you won’t ever have to wait the extra minutes -or hours- at the beginning and end of your journey with check in and collection of your sporting luggage. The benefits are not exclusive to air-travel, when reaching your kite spot in a smaller car, or even in a sports car, the FlySplit offers you great flexibility. You might also take the chance to give your friend a lift to the spot, something which would otherwise be near impossible.
// Precise manufacture of a high quality construction
To meet the high demands on this product, we’ve invested three years of intense testing and developing the FlySplit to create a kiteboard which is more than just a separable kiteboard. Thanks to our manufacturing in Europe we can guarantee that the FlySplits are produced with the best resources. By using only the best material, we achieve riding characteristics which combine both comfort and high performance. The splitting construction is impressively simple. The zigzag construction joins easily together and needs only to be fixed with a metal splint on both sides. In the centre and the edges of the board we use a full-wood-core to ensure great durability and dynamic performance. For the less stressed areas like the tips we use a light-foam-construction to save unnecessary weight. Due to this construction the FlySplits offers great performance but also a great deal of comfort in choppy and gusty conditions.
// One system – two sizes
The FlySplit M in size 134cm x 41cm is made for those riders who love the high performance of the Radical. With the FlySplit M you do not have to miss out on neither an extreme pop for hooked or unhooked jumps nor fantastic up-wind performance. The FlySplit L is available in 160cm x 44cm. Heavier riders and kiters who do not want to miss out in light winds will love this board. The FlySplit L has a centre fin on the heel-side to increase the maximum up-wind performance. The innovative FlySplit M and FlySplit L have very low board weights, coming in at 2.65 kilograms and 3.25 kilograms respectively. This makes traveling even more fun.
The FlySplits are great allrounders, which should not be left out on any travel, whether with plane, sports car or motorcycle. Due to the fantastic opportunity of splitting the boards in half, the FlySplits are a proper alternative to normal boards on the kitesurfing market. Thanks to a three year development phase, we can guarantee that the FlySplits perform like excellent kiteboards, but are still seperable. Thus there is no compromise on quality and performance.
