Introducing the next generation PLKB Gambit V2 – the ultimate all-around kite for every rider. This kite has been redesigned from the ground up to provide a better, more responsive flying experience with a range of new features and improvements.

We’ve made some changes to the plan view, resulting in a lighter and faster steering experience with less bar pressure. The new profile provides better performance, stability and hangtime, allowing for more confidence when riding. Using Teijin materials on the leading edge and canopy, resulting in a more direct feeling with less stretch over the span.

The new Gambit V2 also has a more rounded tip for a better relaunch and is lighter, allowing it to fly in even less wind. We’ve adjusted the LE thickness for a lighter feel with less drag while ensuring stiffness is maintained where it matters. With fewer bridle lines, there’s less drag and a shorter piece of unsheathed Dyneema line to keep the kite in better tune for longer.

But that’s not all – the Gambit V2 also provides more lift, is better at looping, and is more versatile than ever before. This kite truly is an all-around performer, providing endless fun for riders of all skill levels, while larger one-pump valves and tubes make it easy to set up and inflate. Finally, Kevlar reinforcements on spots that get a lot of abrasions ensure that the Gambit V2 is built to last.

Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, the PLKB Gambit V2 has everything you need to take your riding to the next level. With its new features and improvements, this kite is ready to help you tackle any challenge that comes your way.


The balanced Hybrid SLE shape of the Gambit is designed to be stiff, stable and lightweight creating precise- and responsive handling with a consistent power delivery. Its lightweight 3-Strut frame offers maximum stability and improves its wind range. The Open-C shape gives the Gambit a freestyle component with consistent steering while the relative low Aspect Ratio gives the Gambit a super speedy water relaunch.

The Gambit V2 has a single Pulley high depower fork bridle. The Leading Edge is supported by 3 bridle points that come together with a V shape creating more depower ability, lighter steering and better gust handling, ensuring a direct feel and comfortable ride.

Because the canopy is being cut using computer controlled lasers, the profile of the PLKB kites has become super smooth, largely preventing wrinkles from forming in the canopy. This makes the kite more efficient and improves the flight characteristics. The kite becomes more stable, direct and responsive.

Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The entire span of the leading edge has been reinforced along the seam with double stitches to prevent it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding by waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market. All the bridle attachment points are reinforced with Dacron patches that are stitched on the inside of the leading edge so, even if all the power is channelled through one bridle point, the kite will not get damaged.

Most PLKB kites come with adjustable back line settings to adjust the bar feel of the kite. Moving the bridle attachment point back towards the trailing edge will make the steering pressure lighter but will require more movement of the bar. Changing the settings is super easy. Just detach the back bridle line and reattach it to your preferred setting to have more or less bar pressure and steering movement. This is a personal choice based on your riding style and experience.

Our kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze. You won’t have to spend hours and hours looking for a pump with the right connection, and will be out on the water in no time.

Every PLKB kite is reinforced with bullet proof Kevlar bumpers. These bumpers are to create an absorption layer for crashes or when the kite accidentally gets dragged over land. This will increase the durability of your kite so you can play longer.
