After huge amounts of R&D, testing and then more testing, the ELEMENT has been tweaked to perfection and has finally arrived
at our warehouses worldwide ready to order.
- A low-aspect 3-strut SLE, packaged in an open 'C' shape. Versatility to die for. More stability than an aircraft carrier with the response of dual-wielded SMGs on a hair trigger. If you want fat air at full throttle on your landboard, carve wads of fresh powder in the snow, or get supertubed by a 12-footer Macca in the surf – kit up with the Element. This kite will cope with whatever you throw at it. Stable – predictable – light bar pressure – speed and ripping turn power. The Element suits all skill levels from greenhorns to Gonad Men. Globe-trotting with space for only one kite?

Quotes from Team Switch: "I have now been kiting for 14 years and have had the chance to fly many kites from various brands ranging in size and style. I have never been able to find a larger style kite that will get me going in light air and do what I want it to do. Turn when I want it to turn and drift flawlessly and have great loft for some strapless jumps. After endless hours of R&D the Element was born and I have to say I'm super stoked with the outcome. I now have a kite which will get me out there and make things super fun in light air." - Felix Pivec

Element Design Brief:
"When designing the ELEMENT I was focused on creating a kite that
satisfied the needs of a wide variety of users in a wide range of
conditions - from beginners to experts and flat water freestyle
to waves. Important required traits included high stability, quick
turning with low bar pressure, great wind range and de-power,
good upwind and super easy relaunch. To blend these features, a
slightly open, swept tip, active-bridled 'C' was chosen as the
most versatile planform. After substantial testing I'm confident
we have created a kite that does it all. Versatile and easy to
handle, the ELEMENT can truly be used in any element and is
accessible for all skill levels." - Bill Hansen
