The high demands of today’s progressive freestylers have created Nirvana. A fully redesigned C-class kite delivering explosive pop, aggressive power, and unsurpassed un- hooked performance. Key design elements include a 5 strut design, fused hybrid mini bridle, and Liquid Force “Rigid Batten” wind tips make this kite the most rigid, responsive, and powerful C-kite design on the market. Combined with being flow on the 5 line CPR control system the kite will exceed all expec- tations in lift, hang time and power.

Liquid Force Nirvana 2012 review

We tested out the 2012 Liquid Force 9m Nirvana, 9m Envy and 10m NRG.

Below are a few short reviews and photos from the day:

I have had Hifis myself for years now and the Nirvana feels like the 2010 model which is great as the 2011 was a bit of a fall back in performance and not as solid or responsive (I stuck with my 2010 this year), so glad the centre strut is back for 2012! The battens in the wingtips do the job perfectly, keeping the kite rigid for quick response and solid shape, this is going to be particularly beneficial on the 7m as it will stop the super thin leading edge folding when looping and turning hard (had to pump the Hifis seriously hard to stop this). The 2nd and 4th strut have been moved closer to the wingtips to give a larger un-disturbed canopy section in the centre for a more efficient and powerful wing. Moving the struts closer to the wingtips also reduces any flutter and with full dacron from the final strut to LE the Nirvana has maxiumum response. As you can see from the photos the wingtips are very deep, even deeper than the Hifi’s, this increases the turning speed and smoothness even further! Perfect for megaloops
