Utilizing our Single Pump System, the Lithium Progression SPS construction is the perfect blend of quality and value. Using our premium Teijin Technoforce D2 Double Rip Stop Canopy, the kite has an increased durability throughout the kite, higher resistant to stretch and tearing while still remaining light in weight.This combination of strength and reduced weight enhances the overall characteristics of the kite, making it faster and agile. The V2.1 Bridle System on the Lithium Progression SPS offers a functional and stable setup when working together with the Delta Hybrid Design. This combination of shape and bridle technology enhances the wind range capabilities and the speed of relaunching extremely fast. Keeping true to simplicity, the Lithium Progression SPS includes a durable stuff sack bag with strut extension for easier pack downs and set ups
Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Dyneema yarns, where each single yarn can carry 40 kg. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to a spider web. These yarns are integrated into the canopy through reinforced taping that allows them to elongate when under extreme load, absorbing most of the shock that traditionally would have run through the canopy. At the same time they carry the primary load of the canopy, preventing stretch and increasing long-term performance.
This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure using high tenacity polyester yarn, and a double Ripstop configuration. D2 also features a double coating, where prior to weaving the canopy the individual yarns are coated. Once woven the fabric then undergoes a second coating, protecting the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage. This ensures that the canopy remains as crisp and responsive as possible for as long as possible. This exceptional material is used in conjunction with the Dyneema Load frame resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and performance.
Gradient Sub Frame
The Gradient Sub Frame creates a more progressive load throughout the kite, greatly reducing strain on key stress points. Working in conjunction with the WebTech we are able to optimize each model specific to the use. For example the Wave kites feature a combination of the gradient wingtip and WebTech for maximum durability, whereas the Ultra reduces the amount of Dacron to reduce weight as much as possible.
FBI One Pump Valves
The over sized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimizes inflation and deflation. The Fast Bladder inflation (FBI) features increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing, this eliminating tube kink and reducing stress on your pump, resulting in a quick and easy inflation. The SPS Cover supports the tubing further limiting UV damage to the material and prevents over flexing when packing.
Four Piece Strut
The 4-piece strut has an added double folded triple stitch seam aligned with a 20mm wide webbing strip to reduce point of wearing. This increases durability and rigidity of the struts.
Heavy Duty LE
With ongoing improvements to the canopy construction, the increased durability has increased the maximum possible loads on the leading edge. By using our Gradient Load Technology on the bridle insert points and leading edge closure (along with Double Stitching), as well as Dimension Polyant Dacron manufactured in Germany, we have created a heavy-duty leading edge that supports the increased performance demands.
Unity Strut Connection
The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point from strut to leading edge to create a stiff structure that helps in performance and relaunching. The Unity Strut Connection works in conjunction with the 4-Piece Struts allow for a thinner and lighter strut.
