What gear is Christophe riding?
PACKED WITH PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING FEATURES AND STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY, THE HIFI-X2 IS THE CHOICE OF CHAMPIONS.
Designed by legendary wakeboard and kiteboard shaper Jimmy Redmon with input from PKRA World Champion Christophe Tack, the lightweight Element features an ultra- shallow concave center with quad-channeled tips, delivering explosive pop, fast landings, upwind projection, lightning-quick response, and full-bore freestyle/free ride performance. New for 2016 is a slight increase in the rocker line making for better chop deflection and projection in wave kicker hits. The addition of vector net carbon weave glass lamination on the bottom eliminates excess weight while retaining the Elements explosive flex pattern.
Stemming from nearly two decades of innovation, pro rider input, and relentless refinement, the end result is the Ultra Kite — available in open and closed-toe versions.
