INTRODUCING THE 2008 LINE-UP!
Caution is pleased to present the all new innovative 2008 kite line-up. To understand this year’s products you should know that this last year Caution lead designer Peter Schiebel probably logged the most water hours in the industry. After knocking out an army of prototypes, we created two kite lines that handle any combination of conditions and riding styles.

For those kitesurfers able to see through all the hype out there, Caution is the answer, with the true intersection of durability, stability and high performance characteristics that entry level to the advanced wave kitsurfer demand.

On behalf of one of the hardest working kite design teams in the industry, we proudly present the 2008 line-up:

The Mayhem is the latest in Caution's lineup with the ultimate in depower and high performance turning characteristics. The Mayhem incorporates the best safety release mechanism in the industry,and is designed for all levels of riders and Caution's renown bullet proof construction with improved stability for fly-over protection. The all new MAYHEM design boasts one of the most responsive bar control dynamics in the industry with optimized bar throw and precision ballanced bar pressure.

The goal we set out to achieve with the MAYHEM was to create an incredibly stable wing while maintaining the turning speed and performance of the ANSWER pedigree of SLE Designs. The MAYHEM is a performance oriented kite, made by kitesurfers for kitesurfers The 2008 design achieves a tight-pivoting turn radius and solid speed while both steering and crossing the window. We continue to utilize a short length bridal system for easy and straightforward rigging, and tangle free relaunch in the waves. The MAYHEM continues Caution’s SLE design with exceptionally quick relaunch characteristics, making it easy for riders to get their kite out of the water before the next set wave rolls through. We are proud that none of Caution’s SLE designs have ever required pulleys on the control bar to compensate for poor kite performance, and as a result the MAYHEM’s control bar gives the rider the precise connection to the kite that all kiters demand. With direct and precise feedback about the status of the kite, our bar system makes it easy to place the kite where you need it when you need it.

In addition, our team riders rave about the MAYHEM’s characteristics for freestyle riding. The new profile delivers explosive boosting power and provides plenty of hang time for old school freestyle moves. The MAYHEM’s optimized sheeting angle makes unhooked riding easy compared to other SLE kites. On the west coast we have been watching some of our local groms as they charge both sent/unsent handle passes and unhooked kite loops, confirming that the MAYHEM has solid unhooked performance approaching that normally attributed to C-Kites.
