For me this year has been the year of the kite with me taking every opportunity I can to get out on the water. I have tried loads of kites this year so feel I have a good understanding off what I like and what I don’t! I had the pleasure of testing the 2015 Liquid Force Envy recently on sunny afternoon at the beginning of May. When I went out I was considering taking a big 17M but ended up taking the 12M Liquid Force Envy. From the start I was impressed with the speed of inflation due to the Max flow System.
This s one powerful beast! I weigh in excess of 100KG and the Envy produced the raw power to get me up and going in these moderate conditions.
When the wind increased this was when the fun started. The kite jumps well, when I say well, it jumps WELL! In many kites when you pull the bar in the kite can deform and loose shape but the Envy kept its shape and Boosted! The hang time was fantastic too. I found the kite nice and quick with good de-power in the gusts. The combination of good bar pressure, bossing ability and hang time makes this a stand out kite for me in 2015. I would recommend this kite for all levels of ability, the kite re-launched easily with good de-power so a person new to the sport could use it but an experienced rider would love it too. Well done Liquid Force on producing a cracking bit of kit with the Liquid Force Envy 2015. I have to say the proof is in the pudding, so impressed I just got myself a set!
All the best
