Feel like you can do anything with the Peter Lynn Escape V8. Whether you want to go fast, boost big or practice every trick in the book, the V8 will act like an extension of your body, completing your moves and adapting to your needs. The winning and distinctive features of the Escape have been kept: intuitive and direct handling, super responsive feeling and no compromise on power. With the improvements on the canopy the V8’s performance stands out big!

Proven on world stages like the World Kiteboarding League and Red Bull King of the Air, the Escape is built to offer the explosive performance you’d expect from a freestyle kite. The V8 is a boosting machine which enables anyone to progress through tricks and big air jumps. Built with accessibility in mind, from the first launch you will feel the performance potential of the Escape V8 come alive!

All this power that the Escape generates is kept in shape by a short, pulley-less bridle that makes the V8 highly responsive and very precise. Furthermore, a few improvements have been made to make the V8 even more special. The Triflow panels on the leading edge add smoothness and stability to the leading edge. The trailing edge has been shortened so that the kite flies in the power-zone a bit more, so to generate even more power for big air jumps and for rotating tricks. The laser-cut canopy of the Escape V8 has become super smooth, limiting all wrinkles from forming in the canopy and making kite more efficient, and the flight behaviour more stable, direct and responsive than before.

Throw the most radical moves, boost insane kiteloops or progress through tricks: the V8 enables any rider to boost their confidence.

Supreme Handling and Feedback:

The Peter Lynn Escape was built with the best handling and kite feedback in mind and the decades of kite development expertise at Peter Lynn delivered just that in this intermediate, 4 strut SLE kite. You will always know where you kite is within the wind window, giving you the opportunity to make progress and learn new skills faster and with full confidence. The Escape will give you the control and performance, whatever your level of riding!

Accessible Power in a Wide Windrange:

The Peter Lynn Escape power range is smooth and forgiving, but it can be loaded up for a real boost in jumps and kiteloops. Kiteresponse is lively, control is unprecedented. Peter Lynn’s focus on supreme handling materialized in this kite, you will love its balance between performance and control in all discplines, from freeride to freestyle, wakestyle and waveriding. The handling capabilities of the Escape V7 are available on a big windrange. The low end is good, the high-end control is excellent, this kite can be enjoyed in as many different wind conditions as is currently possible!

Small Radius Turning Circle:

The Escape has a small radius turning circle. Newcomers to the sport benefit from this when needing to make adjustments while starting or riding. More experienced riders can use this feature to place the kite exactly at the best position for power in freestyle and wakestyle moves or to depower and take control riding waves. The experts will add to those capabilities the Escape’s character in kiteloops, where you can take control taking it easy throughout the loop or boosting it full force.

Controllable Lift and Boost:

Due to its supreme handling and kite feedback, the Peter Lynn Escape will be a great kite for new-to-the-sport kiters and less experienced riders. It would be a mistake to place it in that category though, as the performance of this kite is just too appealing to riders at all levels. The Escape offers big yet controlable lift, it will take you up high… and in control! The more experienced the rider, the bigger you can go: there is hardly anything stopping you with this kite. Boost throughout kiteloops can be controlled with amazing precision! Do you want to stay in control on your first kiteloops or would you rather be pulled in a horizontal line across the sky? The Escape delivers, you control it and feel the adrenaline.

Easy Relaunch and Full Depower:

The 4 strut profile and shape of the kite, combined with the optimised bridle system give you the easiest relaunching kite on the market. Whether you restart a lot while building experience, need a fast restart to prevent the waves from eating your gear or need to restart fast in a crowded or rocky area, all levels of riding will appreciate the Escape’s easy relaunch. The full depower and Navigator SL safety system make the kite as safe as you may expect from modern kite design.

Versatile Kite Setup Possibilities:

All Peter Lynn Escape kites come with a wide array of set-up options. On the kite itself, the rearline bar pressure settings can be used to optimize the kite’s control and feedback to your preference. With the line length setting, windrange and performance can be set to your individual preference. The complete package offers the most versatile solution to perform to the rider’s preference, in the widest range of conditions.

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 V8 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 V8’s flight behaviour has also become more stable, direct and responsive than before.

The V8’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 V8 maintains its shape which significantly improves its boosting and big air capabilities.

4-Strut Design:

The eighth generation Escape remains distinctive because of its 4-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.

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.

Peter Lynn Navigator Control Bar:

The Navigator has a unique design combining safety and user friendliness. The complete Navigator bar is designed to be as clean as possible without making any compromise in safety, user comfort or the possibility of tuning your bar to your personal liking. Whether your kiteboarding, landboarding or snowkiting the Navigator is your safe connection to a world of power.

The new Navigator bar give you optimal control and comfort. The bar is tapered so also without looking at the bar, you can feel where your hands are holding it. For your fingers, cushioning is added. The EVA foam is comfortable and durable. The centerline goes through an alloy centerhole, giving you good center grip, low friction and good freedom to steer, power and depower. It offers all you need to control the kitepower.

Navigator Safety:

Safety is one of the most important things when kiteboarding. Kites can generate power that is not always wanted and which can sometimes even be dangerous. If the rider needs to loose the power of the kite, it is important that this can be done instantly and without much effort. Often there is no possibility to unhook the depower loop, therefore a bar need to be fitted with a proper safety release mechanism. The Centrix depowerloop on the Navigator bar is a specially designed part that includes a reliable safety release.

When it comes to safety, one should not depend on one solution only. So besides the Centrix safety release, the lines include safety handles. Simply grab the line handles and you can release your kite flagging it on 1 line, nearly fully depowered.

Ease of Use:

The navigator bar and Centrix depowerloop combination offer control, safety and great ease of use. The package includes a completely tangle free swivel. No more tangled lines after your rotations. Adjusting the (de)power of the kite is done through a proven Clamcleat power adjuster that is placed above the bar. The best place to adjust the depower lines to your liking.

Safety Leash:

The Navigator control system comes complete with safety leash, for those wanting to ride unhooked. The safety leash is equipped with a quick release might things go wrong, you can quickly and easily release yourself.

The leash can be connected directly to the depowerline, or to the supplied ‘suicide connector’ In that case you connect the leash directly to the chicken loop which should be considered by advanced and expert riders only.

Easy Replacement:

The Navigator control bar has been designed using the most durable materials. However, as with all bar systems, parts do wear in the long term.

Peter Lynn has a focus on making any replacements for these parts as simple and quick as possible, to help you keep your bar safe with optimal performance at minimal costs.

Navigator Bar Sizes and Line Lengths:

The Navigator is available in three packages, each offering the best bar combination of bar size and corresponding length of the supplied flying lines. Those riders wanting to use just one bar for different sizes of kites, can thus find the most suitable bar set. By making use of the extension flying line set as well as the dual bar size endcaps, the bar can be adjusted to fly better on smaller or larger kites.
