AE2 Kitesurfing Kite
BWSurf AE2 Kitesurfing Kite
Following our pursuit of the perfect wave riding kite we made the Noise, Noise Pro and the TDZ, then there was the the BWS Aeneema. Now following in that pursuit of the ultimate wave riding machine is the BWSurf AE2 Kitesurfing Kite. Æ2 One step beyond.
After the Æneema’s success, expectations were high to create a better and more advanced wave kite. And although we (and so many kiters around the world) love the Æneema, we still felt that there was much room for improvement.
We wanted to create a wave kite that turns super fast but at the same time keeps the best
elements of our early BWSurf Noise models, primarily drift and stability. With the Æ2 we can proudly say we’ve succeeded in this mission. The Æ2 is a complete re-design with a
smoother profile and faster turning achieved in part through altering arc shapes through each size. The response on the wave and drift is far greater than any other kite we have made or flown. A tricky combination to achieve but one that delivers a far more user-friendly performance to the rider and will make riding in waves (or landing freestyle tricks) smoother and more achievable for all levels of rider.
Each size of BWSurf AE2 Kitesurfing Kite has been specifically designed for its purpose and wind range (no up or down scaling). The Leading Edges in bigger sizes are lighter and thinner but still hold enough volume for a rigid frame and fast relaunch. Additionally, each kite size has its own specific bridling frame for best performance.
The Æ2 is an incredibly high performance and complete wave kite for ALL conditions and ALL levels.
Our new factory in Philippines has a long and rich history of manufacturing high-end sails for
the global sailing market. This new partner factory has headquarters in the UK and is all
about forward thinking, quailty and finding the best possible solution to deliver you a product
we can all be proud of.
Features of the BWSurf AE2 Kitesurfing Kite
We started building Æ2 from scratch with all new, premium materials, and high quality
finishing for the maximum durability. The graphics on Æ2 are a continuation of Æneema but
with far more detailing that compliments its rich finishings. The canopy colors have been
exclusively developed for BWSURF so you won’t see them anywhere else.
3 strut lightweight design:
The Æ2 features a super-thin profile with reduced diameter and lighter LE for fast flying and turning. This lighter canopy design also improves glide and prevents stalling through any lulls or low spots in the wind. Medium thickness struts accommodate the rigid frame for a seamlessly clean canopy shape; no flutters or wrinkles that cause drag.
Custom wingtip design:
A completely new and longer wingtip design for fast pivot turning allows full flow through all turns and NO stalling or dead spots in any area of the window. The BWSurf AE2 Kitesurfing Kite features a stiffer profile which makes the turning and handling of the kite even better than it was before.
Short bridle frame:
The stable 3-point short surf bridle is compact and has no pulleys and is born from all-new weight distribution technology. Each string is custom-weighted to each point, allowing an even weight distribution when powering the kite on and off. This keeps a truly tight canopy with no distortion. The bridle holds the weight of the kite perfectly when sheeted in, but what happens when you sheet out? Our new bridle’s custom point weight distribution allows the kite’s weight to be distributed evenly through all phases of sheeting.
