To celebrate nearly 2 decades of ARC/Twinskin history, Peter Lynn Kiteboarding is proud to introduce the Charger V3.
This latest Arc stays true to its core identity; it is built for passionate kite flyers who enjoy the elegant flow that only a true old school kite can offer.
With the first Twinskin/ARC kites hitting the water before the turn of the century, Peter Lynn was amongst the earliest pioneers of the sport. With renowned names such as the S-ARC, Phantom, Bomba, Vortex and Venom the Peter Lynn Twinskin designs have remained innovative since the early days of kiteboarding.
Born out of the love for kite flying in its purest form, Twinskin kites are designed to provide excellent performance in all disciplines: Kiteboarding, landboarding and snowkiting. This makes the Charger the ultimate all-round, all discipline and all conditions weapon for riders who won’t limit themselves to style or terrain.
A Peter Lynn Twinskin is the most stable kite for all conditions.
It absorbs gusts and guarantees comfortable riding.
The stability is enhanced by a perfectly balanced weight distribution which is tested in both real conditions and simulated test set-ups
Compared to tube kites, Twinskins have a much cleaner airflow around the wing.
Both the topskin and the bottomskin are shaped for maximum performance and stability. The smooth airflow around the Twinskin over the top and lower skins avoids distorting and creating turbulence, in comparison, the airflow on a tube kite goes smooth over the topskin but gets heavily distorted by the leading edge on the bottom skin. This distorted airflow has a negative effect on the performance of the tubekite. These airflow characteristics were studied and are the foundation around which the unique Twinskin shape was designed.
The Charger has an incredibly large windrange.
It can easily be flown in marginal conditions but really starts to shine in higher winds, in fact, more wind makes it more stable. Higher winds are often punchy, this is where the flexibilty of Twinskins really kicks in. Because Twinskins are not rigid shaped like LEI kites, they absorb gusts without the rider feeling these gusts on the bar, making for a comfortable ride even in uncomfortable conditions.
When the kite crashes on the water, it is easy to relaunch.
Because the whole kite is filled with air the kite can be re-launched easily. All water will slide off the kite. No parts will go under water and the taped seams prevent any air from escaping and prevent any water coming in. The shape of the kite forces the tips together which makes the kite roll over and relaunch.
The Charger can easily be tuned to personal preference or conditions.
This tuneability is making it suitable for a broad range of riding styles and kite flyers with different skill levels.
The Charger is delivered ‘kite only’ or complete, containing:
