HQ 2012 Apex III 3.0 Power And Snow De-Powering Kite
The HQ Apex III Kite fills the need for a modern and easy to fly kite with lots of performance. The backcountry is the home turf of the Apex III.
The newly developed profile offers amazing stability. Even experienced kiters will appreciate the huge depower range and quick turning speed.
Reinforced profiles and double stitched seams as well as a new control bar with the Evo Chicken Loop emphasize our high quality materials and construction process. The proven and tested dirt-out system allows for easy removal of sand and snow.
With the Apex III, HQ Powerkites continues the idea of a beginner friendly depower kite with lots of performance. After two years of continuous development, an all new shape and profile offers more depower range and faster turning speed without losing its brilliant stability. The Apex is the perfect kite for snowkiting in the backcountry or for crusing with a landboard.
The new Apex 3 Snow Kite has been refined to provide an outstanding level of performance and handling. Beginners will feel comfortable from the first flight while seasoned kiters will enjoy the powerful, reliable and stable flight characteristics that make the Apex 3 popular with snowkiters accessing deep powder in the backcountry. The stability, depower and turning speed have been increased to obtain more power from the bottom end when climbing slopes in the mountains. The Apex 3 is the kite of choice in strong and gusty winds for reliable and predictable handling in extreme conditions.
