Free Your Style
The Escape is built for ambitious and experienced riders who
seek to amp up their riding to more extreme levels.
The V5 Escape is a hard poppin’, big boostin’ freestyle
machine that combines the best traits of multiple LEI design shapes into one.
The result is a modern C-shape design that delivers its explosive power in a
smooth and controllable way and offers performance for both hooked &
unhooked freestyle tricks. Its deep profile gives the kite a lot of grunt
without sacrificing the upwind performance. This ensures you can stay in the
competition box to perform more tricks during your heat.
To show off the Escapes performance, we’ve chosen the 2016
Red Bull King of the Air competition in South Africa for the Escapes first
public appearance. It was at the KOTA that Willem van der Meij put the kite
through its passes and showed the world that the V5 Escape jumps massive and
loops like a rollercoaster
Intuitive handling and kite feedback - Feel where your kite
is at all times - The Escape’s smooth power and predictable handling give the
rider a feeling of trust and control that inspires confidence from the first
launch. The 4-strut design offers balanced distribution of power. The big strutless
centre piece gives the kite loads of grunt while the squared wingtips offer
direct and powerful steering. The excellent bar feedback let’s riders feel in
control and allows more experienced riders to place the kite exactly where they
need it to utilize it’s power to the fullest.
- Direct and responsive steering - Precise and direct turning
- The Escape’s minimal, pulley less bridle makes the kite respond directly to
steering input making it easy to place the kite exactly where you need it. The
short bridle makes the Escape turn quick and tight making it easy to bust out
kiteloops and it also makes it easy to work the kite in lower winds so you can
get out earlier.
- Large usable wind range - The Escape performs throughout a
large wind range - The Escape’s adjustable bridle settings and bar pressure
give the kite a huge wind range. In lower winds it is easy to get going due to
its lightweight construction and in high winds the Escape remains stable and
predictable. Get out sooner and hold on longer, the big strutless centre of
canopy gives you the grunt and stability to fly in a wide range of conditions
- Freestyle oriented performance - Explosive pop & extreme
vertical boost - The Escape’s open C-shape gives the kite huge amounts of power
when you send it for a jump
