The newest in a long line of kites that go beyond the norm, the Zen is a cooperative design effort between John Barresi and Bazzer Poulter with significant research and development within Team iQuad and Revolution.
Colorizer now available! Customize your own sail, save it, e-mail it to me, and we'll get it going for you!
In essence, the goal was to develop a kite with a significantly increased light wind ability, utilizing many of the dynamics that were incorporated into the B-Series Pro... With a massive increase in sail and a great sail to weight ratio, when tuned correctly, this light wind monster provides a high degree of line tension, power and control, you're not likely to find a better low wind kite anywhere.
With the performance standards you know and love in the original and Pro model B-Series, the Zen is exclusively made by one of the best sewers and creators of kites Barry "Bazzer" Poulter so you can imagine the quality of these limited production sails, he personally does all lay up and sewing using only the very best Icarex sail cloth.
Now realize, all kites need wind to some extent, whether it comes from Mother Nature or you put it there yourself, but this kite will allow you to maximize your life in event the lightest of wind so that with a little basic technique, you can actually fly in 0-3 mph with only a basic application of give and take without using a ton of real estate to do it.
As a full size kite, the Zen provides greater lift and loading ability, a true precision monster!
This footage below shows the kite in approximately 3mph, using a Race frame configuration, and you can see it's *incredible* reverse flight capability in any wind condition, as well as superior light wind abilities.
NOTE: The wind ranges below are based on having a certain degree of light wind ability, but even an intermediate pilot will be able to tell the difference right away.

This kite is fairly large compared to the more common 1.5-sized Revolution kites. In 1-2 mph, the flier can fly this kite without moving his feet. It's great for casual light wind flying, but it is a bit less agile than it's smaller companions.

Made specially for the 0-3 mph wind range, this Rev was designed with enhanced sail area and a special frame that allows the kite to grab even the lightest breeze for incredible sail pressure and flight ability... Slower and more graceful than it's 1.5 cousins, I really love mine when the wind has totally bottomed out.
