20 years ago, the Contra took light wind riding to a new level. It has graced the quivers of many kiters throughout the past two decades acting either as their all-round everyday kite, or as the ultimate session saver.
This year sees the largest evolution to the Contra legacy.
Through the use of HTD Lite and the Lite Frame technology we have been able to reduce the weight of the kite by 15%, allowing it to perform even better in those threshold winds.
The three-strut design makes this kite the go to for light wind twin tip riding, and also makes it the best jumping light wind kite we have ever developed.
Even in the lightest of wind conditions the Contra gives you the confidence to try tricks knowing any mishaps won't mean a swim in.
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.
