Peter Lynn Hype Trainer, 2-line (former Vibe)
Time to play!
The Hype is the perfect kite for a day out with the whole family. It is incredibly easy to set-up and suitable for all ages and skill levels. Flying the Hype does not require any prior kiting experience, as it's docile flying behaviour ensures that there are no sudden power surges when flying the kite through the wind-window.
Peter Lynn has put extra effort into designing the Hype so that it can be flown by everyone, no matter what age or skill, with confidence. The Hype responds very well to even the slightest steering input giving the flier complete control all the time. Each size Hype has been designed individually, to ensure all the different sizes offer the same flight characteristics. Whether smaller or bigger Hype, they all provide the same amount of fun!
Every kite flier is likely to crash their kite sooner or later whilst starting out, therefore it is important that the kite is easy to re-launch.
For this reason, Peter Lynn has chosen a rather round shape (or lower aspect ratio). This ensures that the kite easily flips back over when it is nose down, just tug one of the steering lines and off it goes again.
Another important feature in any beginner kite is stability.
Good stability ensures that the kite does not collapse or ‘luff’ when you fly it through the wind window or when the winds are gusty. A good stable kite is also far less likely to catch you off guard when you happen to get distracted. (one should always keep an eye on the kite, there is no auto pilot to correct)
While the Hype is a very friendly kite, it does have some power, especially in higher winds.
Peter Lynn has extensively tested the popular Hype design to make it fly as smoothly as possible. When you fly the Hype through the wind window, there are no sudden power build-ups. This makes the kite very comfortable and predictable to fly. This smooth and docile flying behaviour makes it the perfect kite for the whole family.
