The 5th generation Trigger went through a bold reconstruction of the profile shape, which positions the kite to sit further in the edge of the window, causing more vertical pop, significant increase in hangtime and much better upwind performance. Still maintaining its reputation of ridiculously quick turning speed and powerful delivery gives the proper Blade-edge to riders who don’t fear going all out on the water. Don’t expect a park and ride kite. The Trigger would be insulted if used in such ways. The high performance characteristics let you position this kite exactly where and when you want it.

• Inspiringly fast turning
• Massive hangtime
• Superior wind range
• Additional Wave performance feature

Freakin Boo Ya BOOM

Well.... Where can I start.... Looooong time windsurfer, never gunna be kiter.
Like to think I'm well rounded in the water sports world, surf,sup, windsurf, wakeboard,now kiting. I know wind and waves and just now putting them together with the kite. Only just learned how to kite with James Grundy from Alliance Gear, kurnell. I own the 10 but have used the 7 and 12. 10 has a wide range - easy and full depower, super boost and hang time . I've used it on light wind like 13knots and big wind almost 30. Uni bar is slim and comfy. I've used some other kites LF AND NORTH but for the price and performance in staying TRIGGER HAPPY for now ;)!!!! Great stuff

blade trigger 2013

i have long looked at the trigger from afar, it has interested me as i have heard whispers of greatness about this model. i splurged out this season on a chance and bought the 9m with the UNI bar. so far the kite has impressed my pants off, it is by far the best all round kite i have ever ridden! most all round kites excel in one or two area's and are just average in the rest, the Trigger in my opinion does it all really well, big air, hang, upwind ability, unhooking freestyle, drift i have put this kite through its paces and have been more than happy. After buying the 9m and seeing the benifits i bought a full quiver (7,9,12,14 and even the fat lady!) i share these kites with my wife who is one of the pickiest kiters i have ever had the displeasure of putting up with and she is in love. This season my riding has progressed far beyond what i had aimed for, i went from just some tricks to doing handle passes, big kite loops with bar spins before landing and even some old school tricks! The trigger has given me the confidence to try new stuff in lots more conditions due to its ease of use and big range, would i reccamend this kite? hell yes! even a lot of my friends are riding this kite now after seeing my progression and trying the kite themselves. when i try other kites i feel spoilt with how good the trigger is.
On side note the UNI bar is very comfy bar with the slight bend, the CL is a little small so i bought the bigger version and now im 99% happy with it :)
