Description

Introducing the next generation PLKB Gambit V2 - the ultimate all-around kite for every rider. This kite has been redesigned from the ground up to provide a better, more responsive flying experience with a range of new features and improvements.

Firstly, PLKB made some changes to the plan view, resulting in a lighter and faster steering experience with less bar pressure. The new profile provides better performance, stability and hangtime, allowing for more confidence when riding. Using Teijin materials on the leading edge and canopy, resulting in a more direct feeling with less stretch over the span.

The new Gambit V2 also has a more rounded tip for a better relaunch and is lighter, allowing it to fly in even less wind. PLKB adjusted the LE thickness for a lighter feel with less drag while ensuring stiffness is maintained where it matters. With fewer bridle lines, there's less drag and a shorter piece of unsheathed Dyneema line to keep the kite in better tune for longer.

But that's not all - the Gambit V2 also provides more lift, is better at looping, and is more versatile than ever before. This kite truly is an all-around performer, providing endless fun for riders of all skill levels, while larger one-pump valves and tubes make it easy to set up and inflate. Finally, Kevlar reinforcements on spots that get a lot of abrasions ensure that the Gambit V2 is built to last.

Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned pro, the PLKB Gambit V2 has everything you need to take your riding to the next level. With its new features and improvements, this kite is ready to help you tackle any challenge that comes your way.

Features
Technology
Tri-Flow:

If you look closely at the canopy on the leading edge, you will see multiple triangular shaped panels. These are called TriFlow and create a smooth and clean transition between the panels.

By using this technology, the canopy segments attached to the Leading edge are now able to curve both vertically and horizontally, limiting all creases from happening on the canopy closer to the leading edge.

TriFlow creates an extremely smooth surface and clean airflow over the canopy, resulting in more stability and a better overall performance of the kite. TriFlow makes the Escape even more stable so that you can focus on jumping and boosting and riding to the max.

 
Laser Tech:

Because the canopy is being cut using computer controlled lasers, the profile of the Escape V9 has become super smooth, limiting all wrinkles from forming in the canopy.

This makes the kite more efficient and improves the Escape's flight characteristics. The V9’s flight behaviour has also become more stable, direct and responsive than before.

The V9’s flight characteristics have become more efficient. Also thanks to the tighter trailing edge the kite has become more stable, direct and responsive, especially in gusty and strong wind conditions. The Escape V9 maintains its shape which significantly improves its boosting and big air capabilities.

3-Strut Design:

The ninth generation Escape remains distinctive because of its 3-strut design.

By leaving the kite's large middle section free from struts, the Escape is provided with even more grunt and boost that gives you all the power you need to throw even the most radical moves.

 
Open C-Shape:

The open C-kite shape is great to help you generate all the speed you need to jump high, change direction quickly and do tricks in the air.

The kite’s wide middle section and deep profile increase the float, keeping you up there during your big air tricks and megaloops, and still provides solid upwind to keep the rider in the competition box or close to the beer cooler.

 
Short Pulley-Less Bridle:

The open C-kite shape is great to help you generate all the speed you need to jump high, change direction quickly and do tricks in the air.

The kite’s wide middle section and deep profile increase the float, keeping you up there during your big air tricks and megaloops, and still provides solid upwind to keep the rider in the competition box or close to the beer cooler.

 
Adjustable Pigtail Position:

Most PLKB kites come with adjustable back line settings to adjust the bar feel of the kite. Moving the bridle attachment point back towards the trailing edge will make the steering pressure lighter but will require more movement of the bar.

Changing the settings is super easy, just detach the back bridle line and reattach it to your preferred setting to have more or less bar pressure and steering movement. This is a personal decision based on your riding style and experience.

Changing the settings is super easy, just detach the back bridle line and reattach it to your preferred setting to have more or less bar pressure and steering movement.

This is a personal decision based on your riding style and experience.

 
Fits All Valve:

PLKB kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze.

You won’t have to spend hours and hours looking for a pump with the right connection, and will be out on the water in no time.

 
Double Stitched Leading Edge:

Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The entire span of the leading edge has been reinforced along the seam with double stitches to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding by waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market.

All the bridle attachment points are reinforced with Dacron patches that are stitched on the inside of the leading edge so, even if all the power is channelled through one bridle point, the kite will not get damaged.
