Gambit

The PLKB Gambit is our new allround kite that gets you going instantly. It feels direct and predictable in everything you do. Power when you want it and lots of depower.

We wanted to create a kite that is suitable for all riders, From beginner to winner. A kite with big air potential, wave potential and stimulating a fast learning curve. A kite that you can always use, no matter what you’re going to do.

The high wing profile, big wing tips and Arc shaped bridles give the Gambit predictable and direct power with a lower cruising speed but enough lift for serious jumping. The power delivery is super stable while steering is fast and easy.

3-STRUT HYBRID SLE
One-Strut Design
3-STRUT HYBRID SLE
The balanced Hybrid SLE shape of the Gambit is designed to be stiff, stable and lightweight creating precise- and responsive handling with a consistent power delivery. Its lightweight 3-Strut frame offers maximum stability and improves its wind range. The Open-C shape gives the Gambit a freestyle component with consistent steering while the relative low Aspect Ratio gives the Gambit a super speedy water relaunch.

HIGH DEPOWER BRIDLE SYSTEM
One-Strut Design
HIGH DEPOWER BRIDLE SYSTEM
The Gambit has a single Pulley high depower fork bridle. The Leading Edge is supported by 4 bridle points that come together with a V shape creating more depower ability, lighter steering and better gust handling, ensuring a direct feel and comfortable ride.

LASER TECH
One-Strut Design
LASER TECH
Because the canopy is being cut using computer controlled lasers, the profile of the PLKB kites has become super smooth, largely preventing wrinkles from forming in the canopy. This makes the kite more efficient and improves the flight characteristics. The kite becomes more stable, direct and responsive.

DOUBLE STITCHED LEADING EDGE
One-Strut Design
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 prevent 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.
+-
ADJUSTABLE BAR PRESSURE
One-Strut Design
ADJUSTABLE BAR PRESSURE
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 choice based on your riding style and experience.

FIT ALL VALVE
One-Strut Design
FIT ALL VALVE
Our 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.

KEVLAR REINFORCEMENTS
One-Strut Design
KEVLAR REINFORCEMENTS
Every PLKB kite is reinforced with bullet proof Kevlar bumpers. These bumpers are filled with lightweight foam to create an absorption layer for crashes or when the kite accidentally gets dragged over land. This will increase the durability of your kite so you can play longer.
