The HQ4 Apex is an all-new depower kite specifically designed to fit the needs of beginners or riders, who simply want to cruise around yet still have lots of performance.

Maximum control, high stability and sufficient depower performance make it the companion that helps you to increase your personal level continuously. Don’t worry about mistakes, the Apex forgives a lot and makes the entry into the world of kitesurfing especially easy.

You can count on the advanced and easier handling in all situations. Improved control and progressive flying characteristics make the Apex a great choice for backcountry riding or your challenging entry into the world of powerkiting.

An innovative winglet design reduces bridling, increases turning speed and provides more power than before. It has never been so easy to climb mountains.

An all new shape and profile for the HQ4 Apex also offers more depower range and faster turning speed without losing its brilliant stability.

The Apex is the perfect kite for snowkiting in the backcountry, kite buggying at speed or for crusing with a landboard.

No matter if you want to play on snow, grass or at the beach the HQ Apex is the perfect engine.

Control Bar

HQ All-In-One Control Bar

Leashless safety system: ready to start again in just seconds after activating the quick release 

Safety system at the chickenloop 

Easy-grip, non-slip surface

Cleat Adjustment

55cm for all depower kites.

Riders will appreciate the redesigned molded chicken loop and the new TDS (Total Depower Safety) flagging line that provides an increased level of safety and simplified self-landing.

The control bar is clean and neat with single power strap equipped with a pull-pull strap for easy adjustment. The depower strap is easy to reach at all times.

The "top hat" safety release is easy to reach, now located under the bar and effectively dumps the kite on the center-line bridle, folding the kite back and killing all power.

Even when fully powered up, bar pressure is light to moderate, giving good feedback and flying with one hand is easy.
