News : Oxigen II now available

The brand new Oxigen II from U-Turn is now available, a completely new design by Ernst Strobl rather than a development of the original classic

The new profile is extremely tolerant of changes in trim, you can now use the new U-Turn trim system to tune the kite for all conditions and activities. Stable when it's gusty, fast for flying in the lightest winds, well forward for buggy racing, or lifty and grunty for jumping, boarding or soft surfaces. A simple adjustment and it's done

Check out the Oxigen II for ultimate versatility

News : U-Turn Nitro Evo2

Although the distinctive U-Turn graphic now appears on both top and bottom surfaces, the canopy of the Nitro remains the same. The only real difference is the new Firewire bridle, but it does make a BIG difference!

The Firewire bridle on the Nitro Evo2 features a new type of dyneema line. Stronger and with less stretch than other lines, the profile of the Nitro is better maintained under all conditions, improving all aspects of flight behaviour

The new bridle is shorter, thinner and lighter than before, cutting drag and boosting performance. The new Hi-Arc trim enhances stability and the new brake layout improves the handling and extends the power range under braking

Owners of the original Nitro can easily upgrade their kites to Evo2 specification by fitting the new bridle, contact us for details
