What are the differences between the 6th and 7th Generation Triggers?
The biggest design change in the new Trigger is the sharper and edgier wingtip structure. This helps to regulate airflow over the kite much more efficiently, enhancing two major kite performance parameters: turning and stabilizing. You might be shocked by the way the new Trigger turns effortlessly and smoothly, as if it has small shock absorbers. The new wingtip design has also improved kite performance in less than perfect weather conditions, giving you more control and efficient kite performance.
What design feature is responsible for the Trigger's unique turn?
Two design features combined enable the Trigger to turn the way it does: the sharp wingtips and the precise bridle.
Although these are two different aspects of the kite, they must be compatible with one another and work together to achieve the desired effect. The bridle needs to be meticulously measured to give stability and support throughout the turn, but it also has aid the wingtip in making it reactive. The wingtip regulates how sharply and quickly the kite turns, but also influences control of the kite, which is projected through the bridles.
At every moment in time, all aspects of the kite influence one another at some capacity. Finding the exact balance to maximize performance is the true essence of kite design.
How do the wingtips influence the kite's performance?
The wingtips have two important missions: turning and preserving the arc shape of the kite.
Turning power, speed, control and stability are greatly influenced by the wingtip's area. When a good balance between area and shape is found, the kite delivers superb reactive turning, while maintaining full control so you can perform the exact maneuver you intended.
The wingtips also preserve the arc of the kite, important to maintaining the shape for relaunch after a nasty wipeout.
