Stemming from the existing HADLOW PRO, the ID adds to the HADLOW Collection a kite firmly in the reach of all aspiring kiters. With increased depower, easier relaunch and phenomenal performance in freestyle, freeriding and wave riding the ID is an expansion on the HADLOW Collection that gives you the tools to grow and be a part of the HADLOW movement from intermediate to pro riders alike.
In Aaron's words - "My vision for the ID was to create a kite that would be credible, have a solid feel great for Freestyle, but also be a kite that you can jump on at almost any level. Equipped with a bridle-supported leading edge this kite can boost, de-power for wave or free-riding but still create enough pop for Wakestyle tricks. Even if you are just learning to jump this kite will suit you, easily covering intermediate through to Pro."
Who is it for?
No longer is the HADLOW style the reserve of only the most advanced kiters. The ID is aimed at intermediate to advanced riders in freestyle or freeriding, or simply anyone aspiring to move towards the world’s most hardcore C kite, the HADLOW PRO.
Thanks to its roots as a pure C-kite however, those at home on the HADLOW PRO will fit perfectly into the ID and those on the ID will find an easy transition onto the HADLOW PRO. Read more about the HADLOW ID...
It has a fast turn, snappy handling, and great boost. The all-round package gets you on the water with minimum fuss.
Designed to be comfortable and fun to ride - whatever the weather conditions. The Flexifoil Proton offers the easy re-launch, predictable flight, stability and quick turns that the rider needs to master the waves, or simply cruise across the flats with confidence.
This year you’ll see trailing edge modifications creating a smoother, more predictable flight, whilst bridle and wing-tip alterations increase relaunch-ability and turn speed.
The Flexifoil Proton mid-aspect ratio design coupled with swept back wingtips delivers rock-solid stability, huge depower and predictable, responsive handling. The end result is that the overall stability and useable wind range has been improved through detailed refinement of the aerodynamic elements of each size of the Flexifoil Proton. Whether you are just starting out, freeriding, freestyle or wave riding - the Flexifoil Proton will never hold you back!
The Flexifoil Proton kite can be flown in the standard 4-line mode and a 5th Line can be added as an extra safety feature if required. Read more about the Flexifoil Proton...

The Flexifoil ION 5 has been designed with unhooked riding in mind and offers incredible grunt and pop whilst showing an amazing ability to eat gusts.
The research and development team have kept the strong blend of C-Kite feel and Hybrid performance of the previous IONs and focused on improving the accuracy and construction techniques of the leading edge, struts and canopy.
The Flexifoil ION 5 offers an even greater range of wind conditions than its predecessors and size for size you’ll find more power with solid driving turns making for great powered kite loops.
With new reinforcement patch materials, a Leading Edge construction that has surpassed previous inflation test results by 40%, new Strut to Leading Edge joining techniques and new Canopy Construction giving this year’s ION a more fluid, curved panel cut, Flexifoil are confident that the ION 5 will deliver satisfaction to any level of rider.

The Flexifoil Hadlow Pro was designed and built for the world’s best freestyle rider, Aaron Hadlow. The development of this kite has been relentless to meet the demands of his new-school style of technical, competition-level riding.
While most other brands have closed their C-shape product lines, Flexifoil have continued to innovate in this important, performance-led field. The result of Flexifoil's technical brilliance and Aaron’s extreme ability and determination was absolute domination of the PKRA World Championship for five years!
Created following an intense two year development period, the HADLOW PRO 2011 builds on the foundation of precision performance and astounding power to create a kite that continues to redefine the boundaries of freestyle kitesurfing.
Designed with Aaron’s unprecedented attention to detail and exacting attitude, the 2011 HADLOW aims to offer the complete package for today’s advanced kitesurfer.
Traditionally aimed purely at the highly competent and advanced freestyle kitesurfer, the HADLOW PRO 2011 continues to be the very purest performance machine on the market; however with a new depowered setting, Aaron has targeted a greater span of ability with his 2011 signature model.
With a new focus on the progressive rider, you might be thinking that this year’s model has been scaled down. Far from it, Aaron has maintained his focus throughout the HADLOW’s development to produce the peak of performance in freestyle kitesurfing. Read more about the Flexifoil Hadlow Pro 2011...
