BlackHawk Kestrel Elite PRO Paramotor Cage
$425.00 – $2,495.00
DESCRIPTION: The all new BlackHawk Kestrel ELITE PRO is Here! After decades of innovation and engineering, BlackHawk brings you the finest Paramotor frame the sport has seen. The all-new BlackHawk Kestrel Elite Pro is an astounding 5 lbs lighter than our original Kestrel V3. In a sport where every pound counts, this new frame & cage will change the game. After several months of testing prototypes and feedback from our Team Pilots, we’ve managed to create the lightest, most rigid single-hoop Paramotor Frame we’ve ever produced (with the exception of the V3). The Kestrel Elite Pro features a carbon fiber seat board and rods. This lightweight next-generation Kestrel is extremely durable, loaded with new features, and we’re confident that it will be an instant “classic” in our expansive product lineup. BlackHawk’s revolutionary Kestrel line of products have been quoted as “the closest feeling to free-flight paragliding you can experience with a motor!”
SAFETY FIRST: Safety has always been paramount to BlackHawk. Like the Kestrel V3, the prop only sticks out 3 1/2 inches from the back of the hoop. This is HALF the distance compared to our competitor’s products and equates to less glider line exposure & enhanced Pilot safety. We’ve adjusted the thrust line of the motor placement in relation to where the glider hooks in – achieving “the most balanced thrust line of any Paramotor Manufacturer today.” This is especially great for beginners or Instructors looking for the best passive safety and also enhances the Paramotor’s weight-shift capability. The balance we’ve achieved with this new configuration is simply perfect. The New Kestrel Elite Pro also incorporates a dual-cord net tightening system instead of the classic single-cord system. This increases the rigidity and overall strength of the entire cage diaphragm. The tough net string itself features 1 ¾” openings – knotted on all 4 corners to increase overall Pilot safety. We have a great “Tips and Tricks” video that showcases how to properly tighten and install the dual-cord net system. CLICK HERE to watch the video.
COMPATIBLE WITH: Vittorazi Atom 80 – Vittorazi Moster 185 – CorsAir Black Devil – CorsAir Black Bee 125
ALL NEW HOOP: BlackHawk’s Kestrel series all feature our new “teardrop shape” outer hoop instead of the classic circular design. Aside from the WOW factor, this further increases the strength of the cage while also increasing its aerodynamic potential. All connection points have been carefully Tig Welded and the Cage features a two-tone metallic powder-coated finish for a long-lasting beautiful look. The connection joint where the main hoop assembles has been relocated to the side instead of the very top. For Pilots who are concerned about “cage-flex” on those power-forward launches, this ensures extra strength where Pilots need it the most. Even beginner Pilots will now have a frame in the “ultralight” range that is strong enough and forgiving enough to easily handle the demands of those new to the sport.
IMPROVED CENTER OF GRAVITY (CG): BlackHawk has engineered a new engine mounting plate which will come standard with The Kestrel V3 and the Elite Pro frames. This makes the same Kestrel main frame compatible with several different BlackHawk engines. This new design has allowed us to eliminate the previously used spacers and banana brackets! This saves weight while moving the motor even closer to the Pilot’s back – creating a lighter feel and more efficient center-of-gravity.
LET’S TALK WEIGHT: Even with all of these new features, The Kestrel Elite Pro is 5 lbs lighter than the original Kestrel V3! Instead of eliminating certain safety features or compromising the incredible strength of this cage, we’ve found the perfect balance of both safety and strength.
PROPRIETARY ISOLATION MOUNTS: The new Kestrel Elite Pro shares the same isolation mounting plate that the Kestrel V3 is known for. The engine is mounted on rubber mounts to this plate. The plate is mounted on rubber isolators to the main frame – further reducing vibration through the frame and felt by the pilot. No other Manufacturer has this system.
YOU’VE GOT COLOR OPTIONS: As a “finishing” touch, BlackHawk offers the highest-quality powder & clear coat in the industry. The Kestrel Elite Pro is available in 5 DIFFERENT COLORS (orange, red, blue, black, and green.. Just let us know which one YOU like when ordering.
