Tony Logosz collaborated with the designers at Elf kites to insure the Phantom has all the bells and whistles. As a result, It’s awesomeness is awesome. The Phantom comes with automatic camber adjustment that is controlled with the stroke of the bar. It offers advanced manufacturing techniques to insure each rib (cell) can take it’s own load and then some. It is designed to fly with any of our simple four-line kite bars (20 meter lines are ideal). It has a closed cell design that lets air in along the leading edge to “inflate” the kite and traps it in in the foil chambers. This also impedes water if you happen to drop it. Water launch is reliable, but if you’re worried about it, it’s probably not a kite for you. Bridles on the Phantom are thicker and stronger to eliminate the constant pain in the ass tuning process required with less stout lines.
