The Æneema belongs to a new realm of hybridised kite, something that slots in beside the Noise Pro and the Ian Alldredge TDZ as your go-to for a spectrum of conditions. Its featherweight design combines an incredibly fast-turning profile with the BWSurf Signature Drift to give you, the rider an unbeatable experience. The Æneema provides smooth and direct on/off power at a moment’s notice; turn the power off and let the kite drift while you carve up the face or flick it on to motor through fast sections. The power is there when you need it and the BWSurf signature Drift lets you focus on riding the wave when you want to.
“The Ænema’s predictability and simplicity provides riders the total package and that feeling of security whether you’re a beginner or an expert. I guess faster turning, smoother power delivery and unmatched Drift really sums it up!” – Dano See, Head Designer.
“The Ænema is particularly inspired by our Ambassadors. We wanted to create something user-friendly that performs optimally all types of conditions and provides our riders from all around the world with the best product, no matter where they kite.” – Ben Wilson.
Everything we create is designed and built for wave riding. That means the materials are tough, construction is tight and the customer receives a product that lasts. Nothing tests a product like time in the surf, and we can happily say we’ve tested the Æneema in Europe, Australia, Fiji and Mexico with a range of conditions and testers. And the verdict? The Æneema is the ultimate all-rounder. See for yourself.
Æneema, the most comprehensive wave kite to date Board-Spectrum Performance & Surf-Specific Simplicity Faster Turning & Unbeatable High-End Stability Ultimate Drift & Consistent Drive Smooth ON/OFF Power
4 Æneema Colours:
Hot Orange, Blue Lagoon, Green Machine & Yellow Gold.
Teijan canopy T9600 & DP175 Dacron double rip stop. The strongest and lowest stretch in the industry.
Consistent Drive Wingtip:
All BWS kites incorporate our Consistent Drive wingtip design that allows crisp flowing turns and NO stalling or dead spots in any area of the window.
EPI – Express Point Inflate:
Introducing the all new Black Betty 2-in-1 EPI valve. Interlinking hoses connect all struts to the LE for express all-in-one inflation. Plus we include an extra large screwable output for ultra-fast deflating.
The Hybrid ‘Glyde’ Clean Canopy Design:
The Æneema’s super thin profiles and lightweight hybrid Clean Canopy Design allows for faster air speed flow, smoother flying at the edge of the window and a sharp, responsive turning radius in all conditions. The Glyde technology emerges from the super clean canopy design so the kite is always flying and gliding through any lull or dead spot. Medium thickness struts and a reduced diameter LE accommodate the rigid frame for a seamless clean canopy shape, no fluttering or stretch wrinkles that cause drag.
1 Piece Bladder:
Less welds = less chance of blowing out a seam.
Surf Bridle System:
Made possible by industry-first software, Dano See has developed a new Surf Bridle System. This system’s compact 4-point configuration incorporates a new generation of weight distribution technology that allows us to individually weight each string and provide 100% even distribution of pressure. This ensures your canopy remains tight and taut throughout all phases of sheeting with zero distortion and drag. Ænema is direct, responsive and easy handling without the use of bungees, pulleys or bridle band-aids others claim work better. Style, performance, simplicity.
This feature is now included on all BWS kites.
100% Dynema Bridle Line:
We use an industry-first 2mm 100% Dynema no-stretch bridle line. All bridles are pre-stretched prior to assembly. Our Tech Lock splice measures precisely, eliminating excess thread and stitching that can break or alter the bridle line lengths.
Surf-Tough Bridle Attachment Points:
3mm 100% Dynema interlocking bridle hang points are sewn and glued along the LE frame for the strongest surf reinforcement.
Dacron Trailing Edge:
Dacron is a tough, protective material used on our kites to reinforce against scuffmarks, punctures and canopy tears. The Ænema also features a thin boundary along the trailing edge and along the struts to strengthen the connection between the canopy and the structural frame while also minimising unnecessary weight.
All strut and LE seams are 10mm overlapping and reinforced with 15mm seam tape. We use a glued flat seam on the canopy rather than the traditional over-locking seam. The flat seam offers a double layer of cloth at the join that strengthens each thread hole and aligns the panels for the most precise build.
The right scuffs in all the right places. Positioned so your kite will withstand being dragged over rough surfaces without compromising its weight and strength.
