WHY KITES

Built to break boundaries

Crafted for performance, precision and speed, our kites are a product of many years of groundbreaking research, advanced technology and relentless testing. A display of exceptional performance and streamline design, we bring you the complete package of sail, foil and board.

Leading specialists in their fields employ cutting edge technology and computer simulation at every stage of kites’ planning and build. Each product can take up to three months in the making from concept to completion, perfectly engineered to complement the other.

WHAT WE DO

KITES KITES

Successfully introduced at the HydroFoil Pro Tour 2013, ENATA’s sails have been extensively tested and use calculated material and structural techniques for increased durability, stability and aerodynamic flight behaviour. It is one of the most competitive wings in the sport.

FOILS FOILS

Brainchild of the team behind the Hydroptère and America’s Cup vessels, our kites’ foils are built to provide control, low drag and high performance. The mast and single-piece constructed wing, fuselage and stabiliser are build in high modulus prepreg carbon and cooked at high temperature for maximum rigidity.

BOARDS BOARDS

Built by athletes for athletes, ENATA’s race boards have been optimised and upgraded from years of competition testing at the Foil Gold cup and World Championship. Fabricated from high-density carbon fibre, our boards are designed for stability, greater aerodynamic and maximum VMG.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Our kites’ product line is deeply rooted in its R&D. Our handpicked team is a rare breed of international talent comprising of accomplished engineers and technical advisors who are also world champions in their nautical fields. With an innate understanding of scientific know how and love of the sport, our kites are the product of many years of combined expertise.

Our every product is meticulously designed, engineered and optimised from a technical perspective before being tested by athletes to guarantee performance and structural integrity.

A microcosm of ambition and energy, Dubai welcomes diversity shared by a myriad of cultures, culinary choices, sport, fashion, music and art.

OUR TEAM

Designed to compete, our kites are rigorously tested by world-class athletes for performance and efficiency on the wave and in the air. Weight and feel of the kit, precision carving, improved control, enhanced speed and power in light and strong winds and being championship-worthy are just some criteria our kites are tested for.
