The 2020 Liquid Force Solo Kite undergoes a major redesign to give it more of what riders want in a lighter, stronger, and more dynamic lightwind kite. In their ongoing quest to produce the best lightwind kite on the market, Liquid Force has tweeked, pinched, and broadened the Solo in all the right places for a more responsive, versatile, and manageable ride in a broader range of conditions. Featuring a flatter arch, fuller wingtips, and a new ultra-lightweight build, the Solo maintains its smooth sheeting range and impressive efficiency while inching closer to high-performance perfection.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
We recommend the Solo to any rider of any discipline who wants to ride more and wait less. If light wind is your bane, the Solo will keep you sane! We especially recommend the Solo to foilers, freeriders, and wave kiters looking to get the most out of marginal conditions.
LIQUID FORCE'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
Sizes: 5 / 7 / 9 / 12 / 15.5m
Light as air, the 2020 Solo offers jet-setting freeriders and hydrofoil enthusiasts a kite with ideal performance characteristics based on an industry-proven, easy-to-fly single strut platform. The 2020 Solo was completely redesigned to make the kite more forgiving, lighter, and more nimble in the sky.
The Solo continues to offer a smooth and comfortable sheeting range throughout the powerband, granting easy access to power and control. When it comes to marginal conditions, the Solo has an extremely efficient, lightweight shape that makes its light wind perfomance a force to be reckoned with. Simultaneously, the profile of the 2020 Solo makes dumping the gusts out of the kite effortless. We wanted the Solo to be so easy to use that your focus is on having fun on the water and nothing else.
To achieve all of these goals, a lot had to be done to the DNA of the Solo. We started by flattening the arc through the center of the kite, giving the Solo more inherent low-end power. Next, we cleaned up the profile of the canopy, making the kite more playful and quicker through the sky. To take full advantage of these two changes, we also widened the wingtips. This gives the kite more rigidity and turning response while widening the "sweet spot" of the kite, making it more accepting of increased rear line tension.
Ultra-lightweight build offers amazing lightwind performance and keeps the kite flying in even the most marginal conditions.
Dynamic sliding bridle improves turn response and bar feel while simultaneously widening the sweet spot in the powerband.
Teijin technical coated triple ripstop canopy. Ultra-light, abrasion and tear resistant UV coated material that ensures longevity in kite performance.
Widened wingtips, in conjunction with a new "boxy" arc, give the kite more raw power and make it more forgiving to excessive rear line tension. These two features expand the useable wind range per size, so the 2020 Solo works better in a wider variety of conditions.
