Liquid Force NV V8 Kiteboarding Kite
2018 Liquid Force NV v8 Kiteboarding Kite - At a Glance
The NV has smooth power delivery, and carves through turns with good pull. Relaunch is great for a kite with a much fuller wingtip. This version is much more lively, which leads to a kite that is all around more fun to fly. The only fault could be its low end power is not great in comparison to other kites on the market. - DJ
Liquid Force NV V8 Kite - Stable & Responsive
Departures from the norm and outside of the box thinking are what bring strides in next generation product development. The challenge with this philosophy of thinking and development is to retain all the special characteristics that 7 years of Envy development has achieved. We have reached a point where the Envy is one of the most user friendly, versatile, kites on the market.The 8th version of the Envy is now here.
Not only does the NV have a new name moniker, but also utilizes a complete new profile and airframe geometries.The most noticeable change is in the wingtip geometry. This drastic change has produced prolific improvements in kite input back to the rider, allowing the rider to focus on what is in front of them and not what is going on above them in the kite. Another benefit of this shape is reduction of wingtip flaring, allowing the kite to move faster through the wind window and reduce light wind back stalling. The leading edge diameter has become more tuned in shape by reducing the diameter in key areas. Reduction in LE shape adds in speed across the wind window and makes for a fluid turning radius. Support of the LE and canopy airframe has been improved over the past generations.
