OVERRIDE™ 2

The Override method of depower has become the preferred choice from seasoned pros to

1st time riders. It doesn’t get any easier than this. Just place the control bar in the Override

mode and the kite will immediately begin to depower and drop from the sky. With Override

you can avoid many accidents before they happen by maintaining control of the power of

your kite at all times.

The Override 2 stopper unit provides a place to rest your control bar if you’d like to unspin

your lines. When the Override stopper unit is seated on its sleeve you can temporarily let

go of the control bar and unspin your lines. To place the bar into Override mode you can

simply push past the stopper unit and the kite will immediately begin to depower and fall

from the sky.

The Crossbow has one of the widest wind ranges in our kite offering. The efficiency of this

kite led to the concept of the “two kite quiver” — where two kites will handle the needs of

most riders. A situation where less is definitely more.

The performance in the Crossbow 3

comes from the flatter, Pro Span™

Extreme arc and its fast flying pro-

files. The combination of these two

produce more power per square

meter than a conservative arc classic

kite. Enough power to match

the Crossbow’s legendary hang

time reputation or to propel you

into your next trick. The pin point

control of the power comes from

the Crossbow’s ability to depower

on demand. You can fully depower

the kite at anytime just by placing the bar into the Override™ mode.

Made to withstand the rigors of everyday abuse, the new durable construction of the Crossbow

3 lets you ride with confidence knowing your kite is up to the task. If you are looking for

high hangtime, trick riding, or just freeriding, the Crossbow 3 is the kite for you.

DuRabIlIty Lightweight durable solutions

The entire canopy of the Crossbow is flat seamed and taped prior to sewing. This is 20%

stronger than the free hand sewn method of a top stitch. We have reinforced the high load

areas of the Crossbow with a transitionally weighted material. This strategically placed

material acts as a buffer zone between the rigid strut areas and the canopy.

We’ve also reinforced our Leading Edge and Strut seams with additional layers of material

and adhesive mark cloth.

SPRINt™ SINGlE POINt INFlatION

Ease of use has reached a whole new level with the addition of Sprint™ – our unique single

point inflation system. Just pull the kite out of the bag, hook the pump to a single valve and

inflate the entire kite to the desired pressure. If you’d like to roll up the kite with only the

leading edge deflated, a set of lock off clips will ensure that the struts stay inflated.*

It’s hard to imagine that just 3 short years ago the Crossbow launched an entirely new level of performance and security that

changed the face of kitesurfing. today, in keeping with the philosophy that performance and security are no longer mutually

exclusive, the Crossbow 3 brings you maximum performance, efficiency and security wrapped into a single kite. this makes

the Crossbow 3 the ideal Freeride kite; a kite which can span many riding styles and categories.

Lets face it, power is nothing without control. Thats

why the Crossbow comes with our top of the line Powerdrive

2N1 control system. The Powerdrive 2N1 control

system is a 2:1 pulley system that increases the effects

of your steering and depowering input. For the amount

of distance you move the control system you effectively

double the reaction on the kite. This creates precision

control and puts you in charge of your kite at all times.

FORGED ALLOY CENTER SECTION

The Powerdrive 2N1 control system now implements

our new forged alloy center section with an expanded

entry and exit opening for the depower line. This

feature increases the ease of bar movement over the

depower line even at extreme angles.

OVERRIDE™ 2

The Override™ stopper is designed for more positive engagement

and disengagement. The internal catch mechanism

is mechanical instead of friction-based. It makes

re-setting Override onto its sleeve a snap. Literally!

The external shape of Override 2™ accomplishes two

things. First, the new ergonomics allow for a much better

grip on the fitting when re-setting it onto its sleeve.

Secondly the design integrates the CAS Power Adjusters

for a much cleaner and more streamlined operation

of the kite’s trim. We’ve added elastic to the Power

Adjusters so that they maintain positive tension no matter

where they are positioned.

P

OWER ADJUSTERS

The CAS line extenders keep the adjustment of the centerline

adjustment strap within easy reach at all time.

The added bungee in the line helps to keeps the extenders

free from tangling with your leaders by keeping

them parallel with the centerline.

SOFTENED EVA GRIP

We have reduced the diameter of the control bar and

have softened the EVA grip for a more hand friendly feel.

FLAGGING RING

The flagging ring can be used to

lay the kite flat on the water or

beach when landing or self rescuing.

STAINLESS STEEL SWIVEL

An inline stainless steel swivel allows

the rider to manually un-spin any

twists in their front lines.

QR

The quick release can be used to

separate the rider from their kite.

Note: If the Bypass leash is connected

above the QR they must

also activate the QR on the Bypass

leash to fully separate from the kite.

LEASH INTERFACE BALL

The leash interface ball protects the

base of the control bar from the Bypass

leash clip when connected above the QR.

BYPASS LEASH

The Bypass leash can be connected

directly to the harness loop or above

the QR handle. When connected

above the QR handle the rider must

also activate the QR on the Bypass

leash to fully separate from the kite.
