The A-Quad Hardcore is – as its name implies – another kite in the A-Quad series by Anders Matson. This is the kite you pull out of its bag when the wind is picking up. It has a very wide wind range. I’ve flown it down to about 2.2,5m/sec (7-9mph) and in Rømø we did use our Hardcores for team flying in winds up to 11-12m/sec (39-43mph) without much trouble. That’s what I call a pretty wide wind range!
This also means the Hardcore is seeing a lot of airtime. You can fly in almost anytime you hit the flying field, no matter if the wind is low or high. With a few obvious limitations off course.
Anyway, when the wind is smooth, onshore and clocking in at about 5-6m/sec (18-22mph) the Hardcore is in its optimal wind range. Just like in the video below!
So I guess there’s nothing more to say but enjoy the video!
