The new Takoon Skoop 3 kites have the lowest diameter leading edge tubes on the market. Rigidity is maintained thanks to the Wing Span Line (WSL), which acts like a backbone for the kite. The reduced diameter allows for a reduced aerodynamic drag plus increased wind range at the bottom and top ends. The WSL consist of four snap shackles, one line, two connectors and is attached to the front flying lines. It follows the leading edge to the snap shackles located on the leading edge, stiffening the kite. Takoon are the only brand to use this set up. Consult the user guide before riding.
