HQ-Kites Apex IV 5.5 2014 Depowering kite

The HQ-Kites Apex IV 2014 5.5 Depowering kite is a great size kite for most new traction kiters. This is the most usable kite size in the range. This kite size is also our top recommendation. An Average rider is about 170 lbs. If you are more than 170 lbs, we would recommend the 8.0 size. The Apex 4 is an exceptional entry level kite. It is a lower aspect ratio kite and that means that it's very stable, predictable, and forgiving. These features are a must when you are first getting into the sport and are hoping to progress quickly. If you are an avid kiter but are looking for stability for long backcountry trips, then this would be the kite for you. Stability and comfort was HQ's goal for the Apex and they have exceeded their goal once again with the Apex IV. 

This kite also is available in a 3.5, 8.0, and 11.0 meter.
