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 before.
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
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
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 turns.
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
Kevlar reinforced sparpockets:
On the Phantom II the sparpockets are reinforced with Kevlar on
both the leading edge and the trailing edge.
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 quicker
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
Kook-proof line connections: To
prevent wrong attachment of the top and rear lines to the
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
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 power.
