Best Taboo 12m
The medium Taboo has been build as the ultimate kite for New-school riders in the hunt for eye-popping kite-loops will be blown away by the uncompromising power delivery and handling from the mid-sized Taboos. Hooked or unhooked the Taboo remains rock solid stable to the limits of its wind range.
The Taboo range represents a new concept in building the ultimate quiver of high performance kites. Each size of the Taboo is uniquely engineered to optimize performance for specific riding conditions. Every aspect of design, shaping, material selection and construction has been tested and selected to create the ultimate ride in every kite size.
The Taboo delivers an unprecedented experience for hardcore riders who long to push beyond the limits of their current quiver. Ranging from 4m to 17m, there is a Taboo for all wind speeds and all advanced riding styles. Each size in the range blends a different balance of 'control', 'power' and ‘flow’ allowing you to completely reinvent your riding game.
Unhooked big-wave riders and Wakestyle enthusiasts will find that the smallest Taboos offer the perfect blend of tight and fast steering responsiveness, light bar pressure and unhooked control, allowing them to express their style like never before.
For course racing and lightwind conditions, the largest Taboos are the most aerodynamically refined kites we've ever made. Every gram of spare has been trimmed back to deliver maximum lightwind performance and racing advantage. With a size range of 4m, 5.5.m 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 12m, 14m, 15m and 17m there is a Taboo for your every need. If you want to reach the outer limits of performance, it's time that you flew the Taboo.
The Taboo: Be untouchable.
The EZ-pump connectors on the Taboo use a new connector that directly attaches the tubes to the valves without an intermediary connector. Reducing the number of parts in the EZ-pump makes it more robust and easier to use and service.
3D Kevlar Airframe
All the leading edge and the strut joints on your kite are 3D shaped and constructed with a Kevlar material. There is no better way to connect the leading edge to the struts. Our construction gives the lightest and most durable inflatable kite structure available, yielding a kite with exceptional performance and easy handling for riders of all abilities.
3D Scuff Guards
The Taboo canopy receives 3D injection moulded scuff pads to provide maximum protection in self launch situations.
New Needle Leading Edge
The leading edge of every Taboo is stitched with a new needle, one needle per leading edge. Replacing the needle for every new Taboo LE ensures a more accurate stitch with smaller needle holes and a stronger final construction. It might cost a little more to do it this way but it's the best way to build a kite.
Hidden Bridle Patches
The Taboo has multiple layer LE attachment points reinforcements, which are applied to the inside of the LE. This provides best possible load distribution and eliminates any risk of fraying Dacron edges.
