Peter Lynn Hook
As low as £869.00
Designed to combine rider comfort with outrageous performance, Peter Lynn have made this new kite especially for the rider that’s been around and has seen it all.
The Hook V2 is built for those who are looking to advance and polish their technique, as well as for riders looking for smooth airtime to help them progress through big air tricks. Smooth power build-up and upwind ability, big air and buttery landings: everything you need for epic sessions all year round.
By taking a state of the art high Aspect Ratio, 5 strut frame and shaving off as much weight as possible, the Hook is a wing that is equally rigid as it is agile. The Hook’s firm frame delivers the stability you can expect from a Peter Lynn kite, while its performance profile allows you to ride at astonishing speeds and boost to the moon.
The Hook is kept nicely in check by the 4 point, single pulley bridle, that allows for direct controls and quick, round turning without being harsh on the body. The semi-square wingtips deliver consistent power and lift through turns.
Easily switch between comfortable cruising and high power boosting by setting the pigtails to low or higher bar pressure to add to the flexibility of the ride. Go from effortless cruiser to massive booster at the switch of a pigtail.
The Hook is dedicated to boost big and scream upwind. It offers the airtime you need to throw every trick in the book and put you down smoothly. Its moderate bar pressure, which is easy on the arms and body, allows you to stay out longer. It combines exhilarating capability with rider focussed handling and usability into a laid back package that is always ready for more.
Want to look good riding hard & throwing big? Hook in!
Boosting and Hangtime:
The Hook is designed with maximum performance in mind. Its forward speed is easily translated into huge floaty jumps and its smooth controls allow for buttery landings.
Great Handling and Feedback:
The Hook features a short, 4 point, single pulley bridle. This makes the kite highly responsive while it offers a feeling of effortlessness in its controls. Even depowered all the way the kite remains responsive and quick to turn, coupled with Peter Lynn’s renowned kite stability you’ll feel safe and in control even in the most demanding conditions.
Lightwind and Upwind Performance:
The larger Hooks are amazing in light winds. They are light and well balanced so that they will fly in even the lightest breezes.
Thanks to the high Aspect Ratio the Hook has a high flying speed and great upwind drive, making it a serious contender in racing. As well as a great hydrofoil option
Exceptional Wind Range:
Thanks to the specially constructed leading edge and efficient bridle, the Hook has an exceptionally large and effective windrange.
It has great low end power, without sacrificing any of the high end performance..

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.
5-Strut High Aspect Ratio:
The Hook has been designed with a 5-strut construction, built for massive hangtime, speed and upwind capabilities.
Also, the high Aspect Ratio increases the aerodynamics of the wing, and helps your landings by gently placing you on the water. Buttery landings are a must if you’re starting to really push your riding.
Extremely Durable Canopy:
By using a clever combination of the best materials the industry has to offer and the latest construction techniques we’ve created a strong and durable wing.
PLKB had in mind to make the materials of the Hook extra durable so that anyone can easily progress with this kite. From trick to trick, the Hook’s canopy will never fail you.
Adjustable Pig Tail Position:
By moving the pigtail over the back bridle lines away from the kite, you can compensate for front line stretching.
Or, by moving the pigtail over the back bridle lines towards the kite, you can compensate for a less responsive kite.
This is why PLKB kites are equipped with 4 pre-set attachment points on the back bridle lines. This will make sure you always have the same feeling even when the kite gets older.
Multiple Tip Settings:
The Swell has multiple tip settings on the wingtips giving the rider full control over how they want the kite to fly.
It can be set up with super light bar pressure or hard direct feedback for those days when you are in the barrel and need to feel every nuance of the kite.
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.
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.
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.
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.
