Chupa Chups, forever an icon of fun, positivity and self-irony, a devotee of the brilliant "Life Less Serious" philosophy that invites everyone to take things easier and smile more often. Advance Kites, a company made up of engineers, kiters and designers, focusing on research, testing of new materials and aerodynamic profiles, resulting in a series of new performance barriers breached every year when it comes to Kitesurfing. These realities are now one: the result is a new philosophy for kite surfers who want to be more relaxed and enjoy life! A Chupa kiter, in fact, no longer has to show how technically flawless he is or able to perform the most extreme tricks: instead he just has to concentrate purely on the fun aspects while doing this amazing sport. No more tough-guy staring on the beach, it’s time to smile with the Kite Less Serious philosophy! These special editions of the Advance Kites Ikarus S have the mission to bring a colorful flavor to all the best kite spots in the world. With the help of fine-tuning, the result is a very simple and intuitive way of flying the kite, matching the spirit of Chupa Chups. Chupa Chups philosophy is to drive people towards kiting just for fun, without having to demonstrate anything to anybody, in a Life Less Serious way that is now going to be even easier to achieve with the new Advance Kites Ikarus S Chupa! Ikarus S Chupa is an extremely light kite, thanks to its innovative materials and its special assembly process. It flies well in very low wind and it’s far from rear or front stalling. The low weight of this kite will show its benefits also in medium strength wind, in particular in retaking flight after a kite loop, or the neutral “fluttering” attitude while wave surfing. Less inertia: even in a straight and simple change of direction, the kite will react immediately, and if in rotation, the movement can be easily interrupted once the command is given. This characteristic can be easily understood by comparing the turning of a big heavy boat and the fast turn of a small speedboat: the same applies to aerodynamics. Ikarus S Chupa is a short bridle kite, making its line set-up, even under sustained strong wind, very easy to handle. Eleven attachment points along the leading edge support the Ikarus S Chupa short bridles, this allows the kite to be used in “over” conditions, or kite looping, with no canopy deformation besides the one induced by the overload
