Revolutionary New Peter Lynn UNIQ Play Two Line Single Skin Power Kite
At Peter Lynn we continuously strive to come up with fresh, new ideas to make kiting more accessible and enjoyable than ever before. With this goal Peter Lynn himself and Michel Dekker (foilkite designer at Peter Lynn Kitesports) set the challenge among themselves to design the most game changing power kite to date. Some of the requirements were; lightwind performance, virtually indestructible, easy to fly, safe to use, and above all, it had to be simple to make to keep it affordable. In short: a kite as bombproof as the NPW kites from back in the day yet with the comfortable and efficient flight characteristics of modern fixed bridle foils.
The obvious solution to making a foilkite bombproof is to eliminate the weakest trait… Conventional foilkites can burst upon heavy impact because the air inside the kite can’t escape. So it was quickly recognized that the bottom skin had to go, creating a single skin. To get the single skin design to the point where we were confident about every aspect, we needed the kites to be stable and reliable without the addition of complex bridle systems. In September 2014 late stage prototypes were put through a rigorous test of functionality and durability; a 2600Km kite buggy expedition across the barren lands of Mongolia, where the single skins proved their excellence in general handling & ease of use, ultra light wind performance and compact & lightweight packing. After two years of intense development and finetuning, we now proudly present the Uniq series; three uniquely different single skin kites that all offer a kiting experience unlike anything to date.
Game changing simplicity
We wanted to build a kite that is virtually indestructible and super easy to fly while keeping the design simple, user friendly and safe to use. We now present the UNIQ Series; three uniquely different single skin kites that all offer a kiting experience unlike anything to date.
The UNIQ single skin series consists of three different models. Each model is supremely easy to fly and delivers instant power even in the lightest breeze. They are stable and reliable without complex control systems. Yet the first and foremost advantage of the UNIQ kites is that they are practically indestructible. Besides they pack compactly and weigh a lot less than conventional foil kites; not only because they are made with less material, but also because they are 40-60% more powerful for the same size. Last but not least, Uniq kites do not collect any sand that may affect flying.
The UNIQ Play is the easiest way to get into the great sport of powerkiting. The simple 2-line set up that has all the characteristics of a more serious sport kite in a small yet powerful package for the whole family.
Some of the UNIQ advantages are:
Supremely easy to fly.
Great performance, more pull per size than any comparable ram air foil while needing much less wind.
A lift to drag ratio that is easily equivalent to modern foils, excellent handling and instant power.
No overflying, no collapsing or luffing, ever.
There is no bottom skin creating pressure inside the wing when you crash.
This makes it almost impossible to tear the profiles and there are no cells that can burst upon hard impacts. Next to this the UNIQ TR is made with high quality materials and high end construction techniques.
The single skin design is simple and straight forward, making powerkiting more accessible than ever.
Single skins are by far the easiest kites to fly, upon launch the flyer immediately feels what the kite does and how it reacts to the wind and flyer input. Besides they do not collect any sand that may affect flying.
Huge amount of power
The Uniq series delivers more power in lower winds than any conventional foil kite out there.
Single skins are the most efficient kites imaginable, and because they are so lightweight and efficient their power per size is much higher than conventional foil kites.
Super easy to fly
Single skin kites are much more reliable than any other kite out there, single skins are very forgiving, they do not overfly, they do not collapse or luff, they simply just fly.
