5 / 7 / 9 / 11 / 13 / 15 / 17m

The Escape is built for ambitious riders who want to amp up their ride.

Its C-shaped design gives it the ideal freestyle and wakestyle performance profile. The Escape V6 is the ultimate freestyle machine that can pull you through some serious megaloops. It offers a complete package of great line slack and explosive pop, great hangtime and soft landings.

Specific traits of multiple design shapes were combined to make the V6 Escape into the hard poppin’, big boostin’ freestyle machine it is. The Escape is a modern C-shape design that delivers explosive power in a smooth and controllable way and offers performance for both hooked & unhooked freestyle tricks.

Its deep profile gives the kite a lot of grunt without sacrificing the upwind performance. This ensures you can stay in the competition box to perform more tricks during your heat.

For the first public appearance of the Escape V6, we’ve chosen the 2017 Red Bull King of the Air contest in South Africa. This was a great opportunity to show off the Escape’s potential and performance. It was at the KOTA that Willem van der Meij put the kite through its passes and showed the world that the V6 Escape jumps massive and loops like a rollercoaster.

The features of the Escape V6 were designed to suit the needs of freestyle fanatics. Solid, powerful turns, no back stall and responsive control make the Escape v6 the ultimate choice for the aspiring competition rider. For advanced riders the Escape can handle a lot of wind and can be pushed to extremes in its higher wind range.

of trust and control that inspires confidence from the first launch. The 4-strut
design offers abalanced distribution of power. The big strut-less centre piece

steering. The excellent barfeedback lets riders feel in control and allows more
experienced riders to place the kite exactly where they need it to utilize its
power to the fullest.

Precise and direct turning

The Escape’s minimal, pulley-less bridle makes the kite responsive and direct. This allows you to place the kite exactly where you need it. The short bridle
makes it turn fast and as tight as you want, a great feature to bust out kite loops.
The quick steering also makes it easy to work the kite in lower winds, helping
you to stay out on the water longer.

Due to its light weight construction, stability and predictability the Escape V6 has an expanded wind range for this type of design.
Get out sooner and hold on longer. The big strut-less centre panel of the
canopy gives you the grunt and stability to fly in a wide range of conditions.
