By creating the Menace, our engineering team wanted to amplify what people liked about our proven M-80 technology.
By increasing lift, speed and low-end performance we finally created a medium aspect ratio kite that has the performance attributes of a high aspect design. Riders will immediately feel the strong and constant pull that has resulted from our latest profile designs. By reducing the strut diameter size, we have made the kite very fast but also very predictable.
The Menace is the lightest kite in the 2006 LF kite line. Its design combines unsurpassed power, and incredible lift for jumping and all around riding.
Reduced Diameter Frame
The diameter size of the leading edge and struts on the Menace have been effectively reduced, making the Menace a fast flying hi-performance kite. The light coning effect design on the kite's inflated structure gives the kite its rigidity in the air.
5th Line Relaunch System
This proven relaunch system responds to the industry needs. The 5th line is installed on the control system at the factory, and attaches to the kite the same way you setup the other flying lines. Contrary to other 5th line
systems on the market, it is equipped with V bridle that prevents the kite from being damaged when the 5th line wraps around it. It also gives extra stability to the kite.
5th Line Safety System
When releasing the bar, the 5th line gives the Menace total depower. Your kite will then sit on its back in the water or ground ready for eventual relaunch or retrieval.
Spider Inflation System Equipped
The Menace utilizes Liquid Force's exclusive internally integrated Spider Inflation System that is built in to the leading edge of the kite. This two-stage inflation system separates the leading edge from the struts because of their different air pressure requirements. The theory behind the two-stage inflation system is the smaller diameter struts require more air pressure than the larger diameter leading edge.
Control System Simplicity
The control system consists of a clutter free four-line bar that was designed with rider ease in mind. It is at the discretion of the rider to use the bar with or without the 5th line.
Stylish Kite Bag
All 2006 kites come with a stylish and functional kite bag that can be used to carry your kite gear as well as your board.
