Peter Lynn Escape V5 Kitesurfing Kite 2017

The V5 Escape is a hard poppin’, big boostin’ freestyle machine that combines the best traits of multiple LEI design shapes into one. The result is a modern C-shape design that delivers its explosive power in a smooth and controllable way and offers performance for both hooked & unhooked freestyle tricks. Its deep profile gives the kite a lot of grunt without sacrificing the upwind performance. This ensures you can stay in the competition box to perform more tricks during your heat. 
To show off the Escapes performance, we’ve chosen the 2016 Red Bull King of the Air competition in South Africa for the Escapes first public appearance. It was at the KOTA that Willem van der Meij put the kite through its passes and showed the world that the V5 Escape jumps massive and loops like a rollercoaster.

Intuitive handling and kite feedback

Peter Lynn Escape Characteristics

Feel where your kite is at all times

The Escape’s smooth power and predictable handling give the rider a feeling of trust and control that inspires confidence from the first launch. The 4-strut design offers balanced distribution of power. The big strutless centre piece gives the kite loads of grunt while the squared wingtips offer direct and powerful steering. The excellent bar feedback let’s riders feel in control and allows more experienced riders to place the kite exactly where they need it to utilize it’s power to the fullest.

Direct and responsive steering

Precise and direct turning

The Escape’s minimal, pulley less bridle makes the kite respond directly to steering input making it easy to place the kite exactly where you need it. The short bridle makes the Escape turn quick and tight making it easy to bust out kiteloops and it also makes it easy to work the kite in lower winds so you can get out earlier.

Large usable windrange

The Escape performs throughout a large windrange

The Escape’s adjustable bridle settings and bar pressure give the kite a huge windrange. In lower winds it is easy to get going due to its lightweight construction and in high winds the Escape remains stable and predictable. Get out sooner and hold on longer, the big strutless centre of canopy gives you the grunt and stability to fly in a wide range of conditions

Freestyle oriented performance

Explosive pop & extreme vertical boost

The Escape’s open C-shape gives the kite huge amounts of power when you send it for a jump
