The Peter Lynn Hook’s relatively flat high aspect 5 strut design makes it incredibly easy to access super high floaty boosts.
Being the allround kite in the PLKB range, the Hook V2 is designed to combine rider comfort with exceptional performance. Any rider can enjoy it and progress through their style, starting from any level. The 2020 Peter Lynn 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.
The Hook is dedicated to allround progression and boosting big. 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 rider focussed handling and usability to let you practice and ride from dawn ‘till dusk. Want to look good riding and throwing big? Hook in!
Multiple reinforcements improve the durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The leading edge has been reinforced along the entire seam to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding in the waves. This makes it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market. Kevlar reinforcements on the strut ends protect against friction wear.
All 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 pumping your kites anymore. You will be able to ride in the perfect wind in no time.
If you look closely at the canopy attached to the leading edge, you will see multiple triangular shaped panels. These multiple triangular shaped panels called TriFlow, create a smooth and clean transition between leading edge and canopy. By using the TriFlow, the canopy attached to the Leading edge is now able to curve both sideways over the leading edge and from the leading edge to the trailing edge.
This creates extremely smooth surface and airflow over the canopy, resulting in more stability and a better overall performance. This makes it more stable when you depower the kite and totally want to focus on your ride, rather than your kite. Feel the Difference.
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.
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. We 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.
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 decision based on your riding style and experience.
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 our 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.
The Hook has been designed with maximum progressive performance in mind. The Hook’s high AR frame delivers the speed you need to boost big. Its forward speed is easily translated into huge floaty jumps and its smooth controls allow for buttery landings.
The Hook features a 4 point, single pulley bridle. This makes the kite smooth, 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.
The larger Hooks are amazing in light winds. They are light and well balanced so that they will fly in even the lightest breezes, perfect for riders who want to constantly practice. Thanks to the high Aspect Ratio the Hook has a high flying speed and great upwind drive, making it an excellent hydrofoil option.
The Hook will get you going earlier and will let you stay out longer. Thanks to the specially constructed leading edge and efficient bridle, the Hook has an exceptionally large and effective wind range. It has great low end power, without sacrificing any of the high end performance.
