Best Kiteboarding 2007 Waroo

When you have designed the most popular SLE kite in the world, what do you do next?

Well, obviously you take a holiday and then get straight back to the drawing board and the sewing machine to start work on designing the most popular and user friendly kite for 07.

For 07 the design team at Best have taken everything that riders loved about the Waroo, the huge depower, the c-shape handling, the amazing hangtime and lift, light bar pressure and exceptional stability, and wrapped it up in a brand new skin, with a whole host of design advancements and new technical product features.

Just like the old kite the new Waroo 07 performs in the widest range of conditions with the highest level of safety, making it as suitable for a beginner as it is for a seasoned rider. No matter where you choose to ride, from butter flat lagoon to the tallest line up, the Waroo 07 is proven to perform. Any new kite should make you a better rider, you should not need to be a better rider to get more enjoyment out of a new kite, and that is exactly what has been achieved with the Best Waroo 07.

The Waroo 07 is the most aerodynamically refined Dacron and Ripstop SLE kite on the market. We have taken the legendary upwind ability, depower and stability of the original Waroo and improved them all.

Hidden away between the canopy and the airframe of the 07 Waroo you will find a new reinforcement zone we call Canopy Framing Technology and it is guaranteed to further improve our reputation for legendary reliability. This is the place where lightweight canopy and super stiff airframe meet, and it is the area of highest stress during any impact. Kites are meant for flying not crashing into the water; with the CFT protecting your investment, you will be able to do more of both.

New for this year are leading edge Profile shapers. These ultra strong, ellipsoidal battens add precision to the shape of the leading edge curve, improving efficiency in flight and enhancing stability during depowered riding. Riders who constantly push the limits of their kites range will find that the 07 Waroo is the smoothest and friendliest SLE on the market, at both ends of its wind range.

The new Waroo benefits from our new Harmonized Arc canopy and LE shaping. Every kite in the range has a unique balance of control surface and lift surface, giving the optimum blend of performance and ease of use, whichever size of Waroo you choose to add to your quiver for 07.

In 06 Best pioneered the use of 5 struts on SLE kites, and you can be sure we are sticking with the winning formula. 5 struts rather than 7 helps to reduce kite weight, making every size more efficient and easy to fly in lighter winds. Reducing the number of struts also improves under canopy airflow, reducing drag and allowing the kite to turn faster with lighter bar pressure.

One of the features that made the original Waroo the most popular SLE kite with riders of all abilities was its ease of use, for 07 we have taken that even further. We have simplified and reduced the leading edge bridle on the new Waroo for 07, we have added replaceable pulley line inserts to minimize maintenance and keep you running smoother for longer. The fixed rear line Y-bridle has been replaced with a new arrangement that continually varies and distributes load through the rear attachment points for the most accurate trimming and positive feedback at all depower angles.

Once again the Waroo name is associated with the most flexible and user friendly kite on the market, suited for all riding styles, all riding conditions and all riders. In 06 the Waroo was the best selling kite in the world, for 07 we have made it even better.
