Set new goals and go beyond your limits! Go berserk with a sporty, super light, and highly reactive kite. Ignite your motivation and do what you enjoy the most without making compromises. Playfully show your best performance and empower your confidence. It’s time to get that STOKE up in you!
Don’t set any limits, because we didn’t during the development of the STOKE either! With the Streamlined Construction, we herald the next generation of our L.E.I. kites and implement our vision of durable lightweight construction for the first time.
The innovation starts with the selection of our materials and their optimal assembly. The manufacturing process was optimized to prevent potential weak points and achieve the most advanced aerodynamically clean construction:
10% thinner leading edge and struts
17% lower overall weight
Fewer canopy panels
Optimized reinforcements and seams
Repositioning of the Free Flow System valves
Bridle lines with Ronstan pulleys
That’s why we can say that the STOKE has the cleanest airflow. It’s fast, powerful, and hugely reactive! A kite that covers an enormous wind range and stokes as soon as you hook in!
- Streamlined Force Frame – Designed for manufacturing, developed to cover a broad wind range, and built to reach maximum longevity. We rely exclusively on frequently tested raw materials, and components to achieve our vision of a long-lasting lightweight canopy frame. Benefit from a very light, aerodynamically efficient, and cleanly finished construction. Because quality is, what we stand for!
- Pulley Assisted Bridle System – The bridle system, supported by pulleys, affects the twist and balance of the kite. Pull tighter loops and rely on high stability in gusty winds. It also improves the relaunch and makes it accessible. The movable bridle anchor points avoid tension peaks by distributing forces optimally to the leading edge. The spliced lines offer maximum security without tangles or snags while also minimizing drag. The bridle system can be easily removed and replaced.
- Triple Ripstop SLC-TEX – SLC-TEX stands for Special Coated Longevity Textile. The advantages of the canopy material’s uniform coating are excellent tearing strength, high UV resistance, and persistent air-tightness. The 3×3 yarn combination is as light as a 2×2 yarn and as strong as any 4×4 yarn solution. Particularly suitable for long-term use, the material has superb aging characteristics. During our aging tests, the SLC-TEX has 60% less porosity and 30% higher tear strength.
- Profile Support – The Profile Support helps us decrease the strut diameter, saving weight, and is a key element of the kite’s broad wind range. We use high-performance profiles to increase speed, reduce drag and keep the kite accelerating when it recovers after a loop or bottom turn. The advantage in comparison to a fixed strut canopy lies in its deformation, letting the kite depower more efficiently and giving the rider a forgiving feel.

Windrange in knots
The Wind Range Chart is to be used as a point of reference. It is based on a rider who weighs around 75kg (165lbs.) Actual use will vary depending on your weight, skill level, board size and the wind conditions on the Water or Land. When choosing the Kite size always use common sense and always choose a smaller size if you are not sure, especially when using the kite on land.
