Never feel without instant support on the beach. Whether you’re launching your kite alone, last onto the water or first back on the beach and needing assistance to land your kite, then look no further than the Solo Strap, the original self-launching anchor.
You can now fly solo knowing that your kitesurfing ‘Solo Strap®’ is your kite buddy on the beach ready when needed for self-launching or self-landing a kite. Launch or land your kite with confidence and safety. Say goodbye to self-launching across shells, rocks and other beach debris – the biggest cause of those frustrating canopy tears and pin-hole bladder punctures.
The ‘Hands Solo‘ is the go-to self-launching kite strap has been designed for anyone who likes to be the first onto and off the water. The original ‘Hands Solo’ kite self-launching strap comes with the quick-connect carabiner on the one end, bungee section and large loop at the other. It also has the stainless steel ring should you later want to add the additional ‘Leia’ safety leash.
Planning on landing in a different place to where you launched? No problem, use it to self-launch and then take it with you. Clip it around your waist for those down-winders when an emergency tether might come in handy during a self-rescue.
You can also use the kite strap as a tow rope to help a fellow kiter in need. Connect it to your board when performing an emergency deep water pack-down. This will leave your safety leash available to protect you in the way it was designed.
The Solo-Strap is super light too (165g) so won’t break your luggage allowance. Simply loop it, clip it, and you’re away.
Recommended for quick self-launching and self-landing. The kite buddy in your kite bag.
Bungee with a Purpose:
The tension in the bungee section by prototyping in 10 – 35 knots winds, anchoring to fence posts, bull bars, rock platforms, coconut palms, sandbags & even driftwood.
Water Resistant Coating:
Our super strong webbing is coated in a water-resistant film to minimise deterioration in the sun and water. This should also reduce colour fading by the sun.
High Grade / Low Weight:
High-grade aircraft aluminium carabiner for strength and light weight. The tensile strength of the aluminium carabiner is 2200kg.
Built For Performance:
Tested in locations such as Dakhla, Preá (Brazil) and the Caribbean in wind ranges 12–35kts, using kites from 6m–13m. This has helped refine the length of loop and strap as well as the resistance of the bungee element.
Available in 3 colourways.
