In 2003 a kite was launched to help people maximize their time on the water. The Contra name became synonymous with the light wind riding, and has since become a staple in many kiters quivers. This is one of the most time-tested and refined lightwind kites on the market, trusted by countless schools and seasoned riders to get them out and riding in less than ideal winds.
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.
EFFORTLESS RELAUNCH 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.
REFINED LOWEND 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.
AGILE STEERING Big kite, small kite feeling, thanks to the Contra's agile and responsive steering and increased power delivery.
ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE No matter what your craft or discipline, the Contra’s performance features make it a standard kite in every quiver, not only to maximise water time but to thrive and progress.
LIGHT WIND OPTIMIZATION Designed with the main focus to be ridden in the threshold winds where most kites can't perform.
PARK AND RIDE STABILITY Efficient control and power allows the rider to concentrate on their riding, not the kite.
