From the Manufacturer: The Phantom, one of the most
unique and recognizable Twinskin kites to date has been reinvented! The
reincarnation of the Phantom features all the characteristics that made the
original kite such a huge success amongst riders around the world and will again
be the ultimate Twinskin for landuse. Whether you are looking to bust huge moves
on a land/snow board or to comfortably ride along endless beaches and deserted
flatlands in your buggy, the Phantom will provide you with a stable and reliable
platform allowing you to go bigger, faster and further than ever
The original Phantom I was (and still is!) well known around
the globe for its extreme hangtime, its ridiculous amount of lift, and high
flying speed. With the release of the 2012 Phantom II Peter Lynn
revitalizes a part of kiting history with a new contemporary design,
complemented with the latest performance enhancements. The 2012 Phantom II
will add all the innovations the Peter Lynn Twinskin range has undergone in the
past decade to create a sleek, high aspect ratio kite. Get your hands on one and
experience it's mythical performance yourself.
Extremely broad wind-range: The Phantom II has
the widest wind range of any Twinskin to date! Taking the best low-end
wind performance and enhancing it with quick and easy turning, the Phantom II
will have you moving in conditions usually reserved for bigger kites. The
low wind performance of the Phantom II is well matched by its high wind
handling. With its huge depower range you will find confidence in winds
that you would normally want a smaller kite for. The Phantom II will have you
riding more and swapping wings less.
Auto-zenith: The Phantom II possesses the
classic Peter Lynn Auto-zenith made famous by the original Phantom
I. In the event that you have to let go of the bar, the Auto-zenith
feature of the Phantom II will place the kite above you automatically, without
luffing or collapsing. A great feature if things don't go as
planned, or you just need to take a break.
Stability: The Phantom II is the embodiment of
Peter Lynn Twinskin stability. The Phantom II is superb at flying in
gusty inland conditions. Perfect for land based and snow kite
applications. The gust handling ability of the Phantom II means less
fatigue and longer ride time.
Precise control: If the Charger is the
"Formula 1″ of Peter Lynn Twinskins then the Phantom II is the "Top Fuel
Dragster". Designed with the highest Aspect Ratio of any Peter Lynn
Arc in current production, the Phantom II has extremely fast flying speed,
unmatched stability and will claw its way upwind with ease. Even with its
razor sharp handling the Phantom II has the versatility to fly as
aggressive or mellow as the rider wants. Drive the Phantom II hard or just
"park and ride", the Phantom II will put a smile on your face.
Amazing lift: The combination of high forward
speed, high Aspect ratio and quick turn rate enables the Phantom II to produce a
huge amount of super smooth lift. Match that with the amount of float that
the Phantom II has and you have some serious hang time to pull off whatever
tricks you have in your bag.
High Aspect Ratio: The Aspect Ratio of 5.6
ensures stability and a high flying speed while remaining quick through
Patented concave leading edge: Increasing the
depower range and ensuring a smooth overall wingshape. The Leading Edge is
concave in flight making sure there is less stress across the complete wing and
increasing the amount of depower. The Leading Edge is designed with a one piece
Leading Edge, having less stitches, less drag and more strength!
Triple layer technology: Triple layer
technology ensures the best durability! Especially when chrashing the kite, the
force unleashed on the kite can be huge, with the triple layer technology,
the durability of the kite is strongly improved. Taped seams finish off the
70D Chikara profiles: For top and bottom skin
and all interneal ribs we have chosen to use strong 70D fabric, giving the
Phantom the best weight to strength ratio.
Kevlar reinforced sparpockets: On the Phantom
II the sparpockets are reinforced with Kevlar on both the leading edge and the
Two Air intakes: For fast inflation and quick
relaunch. The air intakes allow air to flow in, and the valves behind the
intakes prevent air from getting out. The double airintake with airlock valves
increase the overall internal pressure of the kite for added performance and
Strategically placed reinforecements: Special
reinforcement patches have been strategically placed on the tip as well as on
the inside of the kite. Reinforcement patches distribute the load across a
larger area, putting less stress on critical areas of the kite increasing
durability and ensuring a smooth skin shape.
Optimised "single pulley" VPC System: For
increased turning speed and performance the Phantom II is delivered as standard
with the VPC (Variable Power Control) system. For further tuning to your
personal preference separate pigtails for a direct connection, are available as
an accessory, enabling you to tune the kite to a park & ride character.
Kook-proof line connections: To prevent wrong
attachment of the top and rear lines to the kite..
Steering adjusters: The straps inside the tips
can easily be tightened or loosened to increase turning speed and flying speed
to suit your personal riding style.
Central flight adjusters: Allowing you to
adjust the feel and power of the kite. The centre strap helps you set the
power and flying behaviour to your personal liking. Adjust the kite to your
style rather than your style to the kite.
Dual inflation zippers (left and right): For
quick and easy pre-inflation. The two high volume inflation zippers allow you to
pre-inflate your kite with very little effort. Simply open up the zippers and
they stay open to fill up the kite while you are setting up your lines.
Single deflation zipper: To help you pack up
fast and easy. Open up the deflate zipper, fold your tips together and add some
weight on the tips, the kite will automatically be deflated, so you can pack it
up with ease.
Velcro launch assist tags: To ensure
trouble-free self-launching. The launch assistants on each tip hold your flying
lines in place and out of tangles when launching, so you can easily launch the
kite by yourself.
Specially constructed trailing edge: Increases
power and flying speed. By using specially shaped panels at the trailing edge of
the kite, the skin is smooth along this area, increasing flying speed and
