The Harlem

The allround kitesurfing beast with smooth handling.

We designed the Harlem to turn fast without an aggressive pull, this makes the kite perfect for nailing jumps, charging the next big swell and everything you want in between.

When trying out your new moves, the Harlems predictable power delivery and direct bar feel offer you control at all times. The medium aspect ratio supports substantial low-end power and great upwind performance. This means you can go where other people can’t.

Our lighter three strut design gives you the freedom to surf & play. Waves or flat water, the Harlem doesn’t care. The Harlem is your first choice for hooked freestyle tricks, wave riding and freeride sessions and find out why people call it “the smooth operator”.

To let the Harlem stand out from the crowd, we added some more awesome features:

– Easy relaunch from the water
– Awesome low-end: stay upwind when your friends don’t
– Lifts you up like Neil Armstrong, glides you down like Barry White

Express yourself with the Harlem as a high-performance all-rounder, and experience the awesomeness of this wave, freeride and hooked-in style machine. Some people call it the best kite ever, but that could be us.

Available in sizes: 5m , 7m, 9m, 12m (14m Harlem light)

Kite specs

Flex tip


One kite, several riding styles. With a Haarlem Kite you are able to choose between Freeride and Surf style. So boost yourself with the twintip where the sky is the limit or shred the most beautiful waves with one kite!

We also integrated a special hydrofoil setting. Get in contact with us for the details.



High Load Distribution Frame

HLDF is constructed with the most rigged and durable Dacron; T77060 Dacron from Teijin. The HLDF has been tested and designed to perfection, to distribute forces evenly throughout the canopy. This is a feature makes sure that your Harlem will maintain it’s shape at all times in all conditions and it makes the kite more durable as well.

High flow valves


The large diameter of the valve and strut connectors ensures easy and fast inflation and deflation of your kite. Our XL Deflate valve makes it insanely fast to deflate your harlem kite. Packing the kite was never that easy.  Harlem kites give you also the option to use the deflate kite from the kitecenter or from the wingtip, or use both 😉



Strategic Dacron canopy reinforcements to eliminate canopy wear and tear including pin holes caused by the valves.

You gotta love this s##t

  • For a novice kiter, it is sometimes difficult to estimate which kite and gear best suits your level. I traded my North kite for a Harlem. What a difference! Just as fast, but much more stable. The nice thing is that with these kites I can go for years, because even for the advanced kiter Harlem is a top kite!

  • I just got my new Harlem 7 and 9 meter and really love this kite! It flys very constant and has a direct steering performance. Jumping is easy and looking forward to learn more tricks with it with every epic session I have on the Harlem! 🙂
