TECHNOLOGY: Single-Skin Foil Kite
SKILLS: Beginner - Expert
Total package consists of:
The fourth generation of our PEAK is the obvious choice for the most progressive mountaineers and an essential tool in the growing backcountry kite touring movement. The fascination of climbing steep slopes in the lowest wind speeds shifts the boundaries of possibilities and lets you dream of days with endless deep snow descents. In the high mountains our athletes require absolute confidence in their equipment, the PEAK4 relies on safety-optimized technical features and further improves the strengths of the single-skin foilkite concept, as well as its flight feeling.
The B-Safe System is the heart of the PEAK4 as it ensures maximum safety, as well as being simple and easy to reactive. The new reduced bridle layout is colour matched to create a better contrast with the ground and increase user-friendliness. Our tried and tested DLX+ and X-Light cloth material mix increases durability while still being able to make the PEAK4 the lightest FLYSURFER kite in the line up. Thanks to the new Hybrid Wingtip Technology, used for the 1st time, PEAK riders will be able to experience unmatched stability as well as improved turning and bar feedback.
The PEAK4 is confidence inspiring and offers a familiar flying feel with continuous power delivery and increased backstall resistance. The result is an ultra-light freeride kite for every beginner which will also meet the needs of daring outdoor athletes.

Hybrid Wingtip Technology
Hybrid Wingtip Technology consists of two self-inflating cells on each wingtip of the kite. The openings are protected with mesh material to prevent entry of snow or dirt. The more efficient aerodynamics of the wingtip allows for tighter turning with constant pull, as well as increased backstall resistance. Through that the bar feedback has been improved considerably, and the flapping of the tip is almost eliminated, giving the PEAK4 a sporty but familiar and confidence inspiring feeling.
The B-Safe System is guided along the B-Level attachment points, through polypropylene sliding rings. After activating the quick release, the bar slides up the 5th line and the kite is reefed horizontally in the middle. This removes the pressure in the kite and allows it to come down powerless through the wind window. The PEAK4 can then be reactivated immediately and can be restarted in the power zone. Independent launching and landing of the PEAK4 is fully supported by this safety system.
Single Skin Foilkite Concept
The Single-Skin foilkite concept has a very efficient depower and allows for immediate loss of power using the bar throw, offering the PEAK4 high levels of safety on the mountain. Its performance and unparalleled traction generate amazing power per square metre. Increased profile curvature for the PEAK4 maximises lift and agility. The most obvious benefit of the Single Skin concept is the reduced mass of the kite, allowing the PEAK4 to be stable whilst flying at the edge of the wind window in the slightest breeze, without overflying and remaining easy to control in low to high winds.
The PEAK4 uses our proven material mix of DLX+ & X-Light cloth, as well as new reinforcements in areas subject to particularly high loads such as the leading edge, the wingtip and the trailing edge of the kite. The single skin concept simply collapses during hard crashes on the leading edge, and therefore can not burst or be badly damaged. The new outline of the PEAK4, the reduced number of cells and bridle layout, in addition to the use of X-Light cloth used for large areas of the canopy, result in an incredibly light kite, which has the smallest pack size and is therefore perfectly suited for kite touring.
The Connect Control Bar is tidy, lightweight and safe. Configured to use our B-Safe security system, it features 7 + 14m flying lines with a high split Y. The lightweight bar stick is equipped with soft bar ends and offers great comfort, smooth steering whilst depowering, as well as maximum safety during your session.
Total package consists of:
The CONNECT Bar is specially designed with a high Y split on the front lines and a 5th line for the B-Safe system. The lightweight bar stick has a conical shape which sits comfortably in the hand. The EVA grip is colour coded, orange for left and petrol for right. The soft bar ends reduce risk of injury and allow for easy line adjustment. The clam cleat helps riders to maximize comfort and safety by adjusting the power precisely.
The CONNECT Bar is equipped with our Quick Release 3.0 chickenloop. Maintenance is simple and easy. The One Hole eyelet in the centre of the bar features a replaceable insert.
Weighing in at just 0.84 kg complete, the CONNECT bar goes perfectly with the PEAK4 and is a must have for your next adventure.
Quick Release 3.0
The Quick Release 3.0 (QR 3.0) is the core of the bar. It not only meets the French standard (AFNOR) in terms of safety and trigger forces, it is also extremely robust, compact, lightweight and of course reliable. A flexible, unbreakable Chicken Dick and a ergonomic handle allow a quick and easy release of the kite in an emergency situation.
Light Bar Stick
The Light Bar Stick is available in 50cm (M) and weighs in at just 0.34kg. The ergonomic EVA grip is abrasion resistant and extremely comfortable in the hand offering a secure grip even in cold or wet conditions. The bar is also colour coded orange on the left hand side and petrol on the right.
Exchangeable One-Hole Eyelet
The One Hole eyelet offers frictionless steering whilst depowering and works perfectly for freeriders to kite schools. This is achieved using a replaceable insert in the eyelet.
The Clam-Cleat Adjuster allows for precise depower adjustment of the flying lines whilst being quick and easy to use. The Clam-Cleat adjuster can also be moved easily to modify the bar throw based on personal preference. For example it can be brought closer for someone with shorter arms.
B-Safe System ready
The CONNECT Control Bar has been specially configured for products using the B-Safe system. After activating the quick release, the bar slides up the 5th line and the kite is reefed horizontally in the middle. This removes the pressure in the kite and allows it to come down powerless through the wind window. We recommend this safety system for the PEAK4 product line.
The flying lines can be adjusted easily under the bar floaters. A series of knots allow you to counteract the shortening of the steering lines over time which can cause backstall. To shorten the flying lines of the CONNECT control bar to 14m, the 7m extension pieces can be removed by pulling them over the leader lines, the safety will still work as normal.
