Peter Maternus was integral in the inception of the Badass, as he finetuned the kite into its final form. The Badass is a freestyler, with which both old-school, as well as New school tricks can be performed. It is a slow and easy flier, with great feedback through the lines and it loves those floaty moves. The UL will fly with minimal effort in almost no wind, and the STD has a wonderful balance between 2D and 3D flight.
