KiteWing will change the way you snowboard, skateboard, ice skate, and more, forever. It’s essentially a portable wing that’s designed to not only work on tarmac, but also the snow, dirt and water, without lines. There’s also no bulky control bar to slow you down, just a simple design to keep things durable and responsive for users. In the correct wind conditions an experienced rider can reach speeds up to 56mph (90 km/hour), while the very experienced can perform controlled jumps of up to 500 meters (on declining terrain). When you’re finished, just fold it up, place it in the included lightweight bag, and you’ll be ready to go. Continue reading for two more videos, additional pictures and information.
The difference between a kitewing and a sports kite or traction kite is that a kitewing does not have a separate control system.

In addition a kitewing does not have lines to tangle, and can be manoeuvred easily to perform a wide variety of tricks, turns and fast speeds.
