overview : powerful. intuitive. controlled.

Massive depower provides access to excellent performance in a broad low-end and high-end. The Vertigo’s ultra efficient leading edge gives it superior upwind ability, while the kite’s over all shape lends to quick, mid-powered offaxis turns.

2010 Blade Vertigo Rider Reviews
Delta shaped but not too deep on the profile, the vertigo is made to fly fast and turn easily. It’s very light to pick up and light in the air with 3 carefully placed struts. The one pump system pumps it up really quickly and the clips are cleverly sewn on to the struts so it’s easy to check they’re on. Medium low aspect ratio and turning about the center of the kite means it’s smooth and really easy to fly.
Maria – Very responsive and fast turning. The power comes on very smoothly and is easy to control. I love the 9 and the 7, the 7 I’ve used in 16kts! I think my ideal kite quiver would be 7m, 9m and 10m. I’ll never need more than 10m and that’s fantastic as i hate big kites!
Marith – My favourite so far – I loved the 9m! It’s really smooth and has plenty of power.
Gum – The feeling is very good – very smooth. It turns fast so it’s easy to control. If you are good you can turn quick and boom!! the power is strong! If compared with age, the vertigo is about 21. The vegas is a teenager and cabrinha 30+. I like 21!!
Col – Being quite light I have a problem in stronger gusty wind, so i like a kite that can depower easily but i don’t want it to be slow. This kite is really fast and super easy to control so I can have fun but when it all pulls too much I can easily let out. The 10m has me going in 11kts and pulls well, the 9m is an awsome kite – quick in loops and easy for jumping. The 7m gets me out in 18+kts and is a lot of fun in loops! The power difference between the sizes is what you’d expect – the 9 is 2m more powerful than the 7, the 10 is 1m more powerful than the 9. I can’t wait to try the 12 and 14!
Ruth – It’s very easy to fly isn’t it? The sort of kite you can just sit back and relax. I may get one in addition to my Cabrinhas – it’s just so easy!
A really special kite this one – easy to fly, fast, great low end, easy to set up. Good for cruising along, good for tricks. It does it all! Unless you’re over 80kg – then maybe you’ll like the full-on power of the Trigger.
