After a successful factory inspection, the following Flysurfer RAM-Air kites have been approved by the IKA Technical Committee as registered series production equipment for the IKA Formula Kite Class.

  • Flysurfer VMG2 23m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 21m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 18m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 15m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 13m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 11m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 10m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 09m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 08m
The Flysurfer VMG2 is the world's first Two-Level foil kite with a supported profile technology.

The canopy is normally supported by three bridle levels and brake lines that are attached to the trailing edge. The complex bridle line system is controlled by several pulleys to change the profiles camber and angle of attack. The VMG2 only changes the angle of attack and uses a constantly cambered profile supported by glass fiber rods to generate an efficient airfoil.

Flysurfer VMG2 kites will now be evaluated in competition until the end of 2021, when World Sailing will license the 2024 Olympic equipment through a separate agreement with the successful manufacturers.
