Switch Kiteboarding has announced the launch of the new Element 4 All-Terrain kite.

The brand developed the Element 4 All-Terrain for an all-round performance in any terrain. The kite is designed for water, land and snow. And Switch vehemently insists this is not marketing talk.

"We welcome anyone to prove us wrong. This mid-aspect ratio 3 strut open C design, supported rock solid by a pulley free compact bridle, features a tight pivotal turn, smooth power delivery and incredible wind range," notes Switch Kiteboarding.

The Element 4 All-Terrain is ready for the barrel hunting in Hawaii, free riding your local lake or exploring the snow-covered backcountry in the Alps.

"Riders from first lesson beginners to hardcore wave riders will find it equally up to the task. Wave riders instantly notice quick turns with remarkable drift for riding in all conditions," adds the kite company.

Switch has revised wingtips to improve rigidity and stability, allowing a crisp, direct feel with slightly faster turning speeds. The Element 4 All-Terrain is constructed of several new fabrics.

The new kite by Switch is available in the following sizes: 15, 13, 11, 9, 7 and 5 meters.
