In 2003 a kite was launched to help people maximize their time on the water. The name became synonymous with light wind riding, and has since become a staple in many kiters quivers. The Contra 3 Strut continues this legacy and provides the rider with the ultimate blend of light wind power and agility to maximize time on the water in threshold winds. Its supported 3 strut frame allows to not only drive forward when using a more traditional selection of kiteboards, but it also provides a stable canopy and an increased high end range.
Nano Ripstop Canopy, the benchmark in durability, stability and responsiveness
High Tenacity Dacron for enhanced arc stability and improved handling characteristics
Strategic canopy reinforcements in the high stress areas
Pure profile panels for efficient aerodynamics
Agile and responsive steering for increased power delivery
Refined low end performance for better upwind ability
Effortless relaunch in the lightest of wind conditions
Even in the lightest of wind conditions the Contra 3S gives you the confidence to try tricks knowing any mishaps won’t mean a swim in.
REFINED LOW END
The Contra specializes in incredible upwind performance even in minimal wind speeds. Dubbed the 'Session Saver’ the Contra has become synonymous with light wind riding and a favorite with many who never want to miss a day of kitesurfing.
Big kite, small kite feeling thanks to the Contra’s agile and responsive steering and increased power delivery.
No matter what your craft or discipline, the Contra’s performance features make it a standard kite in every quiver, not only to maximize water time but to thrive and progress.
Designed with the main focus to be ridden in the threshold winds where most kites can’t perform.
PARK AND RIDE SIMPLICITY
Efficient control and power allows the rider to concentrate on their riding, not the kite.

HIGH TENACITY DACRON
Our Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under the high inflation pressures. Lower elongatin make for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
NANO RIPSTOP CANOPY
A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite's design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material. Nano Ripstop does just that.
PURE PROFILE PANELS
Strategically placed panels allow for a seamless and smooth airflow over the most important area of the flying surface, creating an efficient and true to design profile that no others can match.
