Product Description

Designed by our old friend John Barresi in collaboration with ITW, the Kymera blends old and new school elements to produce both trick and precision ability in a wide wind range. Graceful side slides, jacobs ladders, spin landings to wap-do-waps, this is a true all-rounder fit for a fun day at the beach or serious competition. Built to drive and track with sharp, stable cornering when loaded up with a good wind, the Kymera is a great kite for tight banking turns and arcs with small powerful inputs, backed up by its smooth style throughout a wide range of tricks. Icarex polyester with Sky Shark carbon spars. 7’-2” x 3’-2”. 11.1-oz. 58/36” case. Includes a fixed 15-gram weight on the spine and another one on the tail, plus two 5-gram tail weights to use in any combination that you choose. Use 90-lb. Spectra line. Please specify Lime, Blue or Red color. 

Features:

  • Carbon frame flies easily in lighter winds.
  • Fast and quick-turning for extra excitement in stronger winds.
  • Icarex Polyester cloth.
  • Premium SkyShark carbon fram.
  • Solid pull provides excellent feedback.
  • 25 Grams of tail weights for advanced trick flying.
  • Deluxe Travel Case.


TOM'S NOTES:
As a young man John Barresi purchased his first dual-line from our Berkeley Marina location in 1990. it wasn't long before he had learned all we could teach him. Then, true to his nature, he began to share his growing kite knowledge with anyone who needed help. Flash forward more than two decades and now John is our webmaster, founder of Team iQuad and all-around mulit-line kite guru. We are excited to share John's first kite design with you and it is especially fun knowing that John's life in kitting began with us right here in Berkeley more than 20 years ago. We hope you enjoy your new Kymera and perhaps even a little more so, now that you know the "Rest of the Story".
