The 2012 Vegas reinforces its legacy as an incredibly versatile C-shape kite, integrating uncompromised new-school/wake attributes with free-ride comfort. The key to the Vegas’ versatility lies in a simple adjustment on the kite’s wingtip, offering three varied settings with the quick switch of a knot. These settings have been tuned to offer three very distinct modes to suit your preferred riding style.
The standard free-ride setting offers everything you would expect from a free-ride kite like loads of de-power, responsive steering and predictable handling. The second setting is ideal for taking your first steps into freestyle, offering noticeably harder bar pressure providing more accurate kite feedback and making steering slightly less responsive to practice unhooked tricks. The third option converts the Vegas into a full-blooded new-school/wake machine that sits deeper in the wind window and delivers consistent pull with a very limited de-power stroke. This is the preferred setting of our core freestyle team and allows you to do the most powerful kite-loops and offers the most explosive pop for powered new-school and wake tricks.
- C-Shape Kite
- Optional Modes: NewSchool/Freestyle/Freeride
- Direct steering
- Wakestyle/Freestyle Setting: Similar to the adaptive tips, the Vegas offers two different settings, freestyle and wakestyle.
- Back pigtail position A offers more delay, the Vegas is less direct.
- Front pigtail position B offers less depower, more pop and being unhooked less pull.
- Vegas 12m + 14 m do not have an additional back pigtail! Please use the normal back pigtail for both modes!
- Lazy Pump: One valve for inflating, one valve for deflating the whole kite. Easy and efficient.
The Control Bar:
The NKB Trust bar 5th Element is the most progressive and effective tool to steer your kite and comes equipped with the most functional safety system in kiting, the IRON HEART IV. The Iron heart IV fulfills the challenging French safety norm and offers the best possible safety even in the most extreme conditions. The release forces are remarkably low, providing the highest level of safety in emergency situations. For 2012, the entire bar has been completely re-designed, without losing proven features like the roto-head, the sliding stopper with stopper ball and adjustable winding posts. The small and lightweight vario cleat helps to adjust the Trust Bar in any situation quickly and easily. The new upgraded ergonomic bar grip improves comfort and all features of the 2012 Trust Bar are redefined with an aim on the highest functionality and easiest handling, even in challenging circumstances.
