Wild Thing 5

Being focused on one style is good, but serving all styles is even better.  With a revised open C design, we focused on more performance orientated Wild Thing than ever. The 5th generation of the Wild Thing provides fast turning, strong static pull, powerful lift and enhanced low wind performance. The Wild Thing benefits from the rich innovative features from JN, like Perfect Round Arc Shape combined with the best materials available to the industry. 
We accepted no compromise in quality. To answer the low wind requirements with a performance model there are the sizes : 14 and 16+. Easy four line bridle kite with open C shape offers the benefits of a fast responding performance weapon when you need it.  With WT expect a sportive, fast turning, well balanced modern 4 with optional 5 line kite concept serving freestyle or freeride.

International Teamrider Heinar Brandstötter

   I love the Wild Thing 14, because it is a very fast kite for his size. It has much power and good turning speed. Mostly I ride the 14 in very low winds, for which this kite has perfect wakestyle performance and comfortable bar feeling.

Perfect Wide Round Arc Shape

Perfect Round Wide Arc Shape

The leading edge is made from minimal segments and is completely rounded which is achieved with clever cutting methods. This makes it lighter, stiffer, more robust and far more aerodynamic.

3D Shape

For the first time 3 axes are calculated in curved space in the design of the leading edge and also for the Canopy. The path led through many airflow analysis, rider feedbacks and inclusion of R&D work since 1999. The smaller 3D surfaces have the same efficiency as large areas of former 2D concepts, which means a higher efficiency of the entire kite.The principle is very consistently implemented  for the whole Leading Edge, to provide uncompromising sporty quick turning and explosiveness (including through multi-tip surfaces and other Leading Edge curvature).
