REVIEWED AND TESTEDSPIRIT

During the year, we sent our GIN Kite Spirit to a number of magazines so they could test and review them.

We designed the Spirit to be an all-around freeride foil kite, which you can use on the water, on the snow, or on the land. The kite is a versatile closed-cell foil kite that flies well in the low wind while performing efficiently in high wind for smaller sizes.

Below you will find some feedback and reviews.

IKSURFMAG – ISSUE 89:  

The Spirit we tested was the 10m. The 10m has a recommended wind range of 11-23 knots with a wingspan of 7.7 meters. Weighing in at 1.6 kg, it’s not only as light as a feather, but it will get you out in the slightest of breeze!

“It’s clear to state that the Spirit from Gin Kiteboarding is a great all-around foil kite. Whether you’re a beginner getting into foil kites or someone who regularly competes, this kite can benefit all levels of riders and allow them to progress quickly within the sport of kiting and foiling. Foil kites are definitely something you should try before you buy. They offer a different riding experience, so it’s important you understand this and then give it a go. It’s always interesting seeing what the L.E.I kite riders think of foil kites, but with the Spirit, there’s not a lot that can go wrong!”

THE KITE MAG – ISSUE 45 

“Overall the behavior of the Spirit is very close to an inflatable kite and will appeal to a wide range of kiters. The benefits of a foil kite are significant for all riders and these ‘accessible freeride’ offerings do offer a genuine alternative to inflatable kites – for us the Spirit is a very impressive showcase of this segment of the market and has the capacity to add a new dimension to your sessions.
