  • Flysurfer VMG2 18m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 15m
  • Flysurfer VMG2 13m

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.
