The Tango kite is a brand new addition to our kite range for 2014. It is a very unique kite with a revolutionary feature invented by CrazyFly: the Nifty Bridle System. This feature allows the rider to easily switch between three riding modes: wave, freeride/freestyle, and wakestyle. The Nifty allows for changes to be made directly on the Tango’s bridle very quickly and easily. The different settings on the Nifty bridle system change the flight characteristics of the kite to the extent that it becomes better suited towards the chosen riding style. CrazyFly is the first company to introduce such a feature to the market that allows for three riding style settings on one kite.
In the air, Tango feels different on each setting. On the wave setup, the kite has very smooth turning and flight characteristics, and won’t backstall when you ride the wave out in front. It is very easy to control with soft power turns and feels very light in the air, flying with you down the waves to be there with power when you’re ready. This allows the rider to mostly feel the surf, as the Tango is very gentle on the wave set up.
On the freeride/freestyle set up, the Tango kite is very dynamic. It turns quickly with perfect power and moves exactly where the rider wants it to go. Powered kite loops come with ease, plus the Tango provides amazing upwind abilities on this setting.
Last but not least is the wakestyle set up, where the Tango is extremely stable and provides the most power. When riding with the kite at forty-five degrees and going for a handle pass, the kite stays in the same position until the landing. In addition, this kite turns with loads of power in the wakestyle setting and offers strong power boosts for unhooked kiteloops.
More experienced riders will benefit the most from the Nifty Bridle System, but the Tango can be comfortably used by almost any rider. With a four-line set up and very easy relaunch, this kite is a diverse power-house while being very user friendly.
As with all CrazyFly products, the Tango demonstrates the highest standards of quality both in materials and manufacture. It’s the perfect combination of great value, high quality and performance at a fantastic price.
The Tango comes complete with bar, kite bag, pump, safety leash and repair kit.
