Marabou 2Freeride

THE FIRST
HYBRID KITE

The Gin Marabou 2 is the very first hybrid kite in the world that combines a single surface and the construction of a closed-cell kite, thereby opening up brand new perspectives. This small, versatile kite generates exceptional power, which makes it perfect for foiling, twintipping, and surfing. Thanks to its incredible stability and reliability, the Marabou 2 is an intuitive and user-friendly kite.

The Marabou 2’s innovative hybrid construction consists of 40% closed-cell and 60% single-surface. Its new rounded and square shape enables you to experience an incredibly small and light kite that generates extraordinary power on foil boards, twintip boards or surfboards.

compact

The Marabou 2’s lightweight design makes it possible to carry the product in a small bag that weighs less than your water bottle. Regardless of the wind available, even without a single pump stroke, your session will be unforgettable. After what, the zip on the inside of the leading edge will allow you to deflate the canopy faster.

The Marabou 2 performs exceptionally well in light winds and offers astonishing stability. In fact, its depower and maneuverability will make your session easy right away, delivering power throughout the entire wind range. The closed leading edge also allows the kite to be positioned further forward of the window and gives more performance upwind.

We tried to find the performance of a closed-cell kite combined with the lightness of a mono surface. The exceptional handling makes it very easy to use for anyone.

Hans Bollinger - Designer

It is to much fun to fly the Marabou 2! The kite is very easy to use for beginners, the turns are described fairly well, and you can be surprised from the moment you want to leave the frame! Great jumps followed by endless fun. The ideal compromise to have fun!

Tim Bollinger - Test pilot

I just love how compact, safe and easy to use the Marabou 2 is. A true milestone in the kite innovation field!
