Is This One For You?
Do you have rocks the size of Gibraltar? Combat is for the hardcore – delivering adrenalin rushes so extreme and addictive you won’t believe your new reality this power tool will deliver. Do NOT touch this kite unless you are advanced or in competition. Be warned. This could be the ultimate high.
Constant Curve Design
All Switch kites use constant-curve LE tubes and struts - no segmented leading edge tubes, kinks or weak spots. Constant curve tubes create a stiffer, more stable structure which is smaller, faster, lighter. A superior engineering structure that's aerodynamically clean and efficient. We don't do angled corners that disrupt airflow, concentrate stress and distort underload. Why would we? No one else seems to be doing this yet - but we insist on only the best for Switch riders.
Trailing Edge Flow Control
Smooth upwind riding with zero flap. Period.
Uni-Pump Rapid Inflate/Deflate System
Pump up faster than Nikki Benz. Deflate quicker than Tiger Woods' ego. The Uni-Pump minimizes set up/pack up time - less pumping more jumping.
High performance lightweight stiff carbon-fiber wingtip battens instead of inflated wingtip tubes. The battens provide solid feel and instant turning and are not subject to inflation pressure or the extra complexity and weight of an inflatable structure.
Loop the 13m, pass the 5m. Effortless.
C - Power Turns
All our kites love to fly unhooked without touching the depower strap.
This is the sh*t. Man and machine become one.

Silky Power Control
Delivering more power than a chipped Veyron, all controlled within arm’s length. Pure exhilaration.
Gobsmackingly awesome upwind performance.
Rock solid, stable and brilliant for unhooked moves.
Omg - we can’t possibly print what we want to say here.
Performance that brings tears to the eyes of grown men.
Nitro is a high- performance piece of engineering. Could be a challenge for the novice. But if you know how to stay upwind, this power tool will quickly take you to the next level avoiding those brown-trouser moments.

- Unhook machineReview by Pierre
The combat V1 is a beast for unhooking with explosive pop and lot of slack! It's also a predictable kite with direct handeling. The lift is also very good.
Great kite for freestyle/wakestyle
