The HQ Apex IV was a great improvement to its 2013 model. This year HQ has improved the Apex even further by releasing the HQ Apex V. The Apex V has been developed for beginners and intermediate riders to excel at power kiting and snowkiting. New improvements include a better control system, making handling easier in critical situations, and a new color of kite to every size. The Apex V flies with stability and ease, and since the pre-attached lines and bar are included you’re ready to fly!

We love HQ kites super clean control bar with loads of safety built in. The color kite-line sets are optimum for snowkiting.

We highly recommend a harness to get the most out of your Apex snow kite. A power kite waist harness is generally recommended for most riders for ease of use and movement.

Our Review of the HQ Apex V

Our initial impression is that this kite feels like a much more expensive kite. quality of the lines, backpack are really superb. The bar has an easy to reach strap for the depower adjustment.The kite itself is sturdy and well stitched.

The Apex V launches effortlessly in light winds by just tugging the center line. We also had no trouble with the reverse launch in both light and moderate winds (we didn’t have a high wind day to try it but assume it would be the same or easier).

In the air the kite feels grunty and confident. The kite feels a bit smaller than it’s respective size whether 3.5 or 13 meter as it turns quick and steers true with the bar. The depower works as it should, just slide it away from you and the power drops down fast. A very responsive kite and has become our

go-to kite for skiing the backcountry, piloting a buggy or landboarding.

What we really like about this kite is that it is stable. No unpredictable lifts or sketchy behavior. It’s direct, solid and does what it should. Though we were able to get some nice lofty airs in +20knots. It sits back in the window and a bit better behaved than the HQ Montana (which is superb for those needing more advanced performance and lift in their jumps). We also found the HQ Apex forgiving on landings as it floated us slowly back to the ground.

  • New shape for more performance and depower
  • Very stable and easy to handle
  • Good turning speed
  • Wide usable wind range
  • High quality contruction
  • Stitched dyneema bridle for strength
  • 270kg (595 lb) coloured Dyneema flying lines
  • Includes depower control bar, backpack and guide book

To sum up, we found the Apex to be an excellent value for the money. Coming close to the performance off the more expensive kites with an added stability factor we liked. One of the best reviews we’ve done. We highly recommend this kite to all put competition level kiters.
