No wind? No problem with this kite. Anywhere, anytime, the 4-D flies when all your other kites are on the ground. It’s light at just 70 grams. Light enough to fly by walking backwards in the barest breeze, or even indoors. The wing is nicely balanced for graceful freestyle flying and remains buoyant in finicky wind. In the air it has precision and presence, with the responsive line feel of a larger kite.
Got wind? It’s not a problem. The 4-D is super light, but not super fragile and its as happy to fly in 10 mph as it is in 0. It has a solid carbon high-modulus frame can seriously bend. The sail is ultralight Icarex polyester and Mylar laminate. Limiters on the bridle prevent over- or under- tuning the kite for the wind so you don’t miss the sweet spot. The frame breaks down and comes in a padded case. Comes with a 50# x 50ft Dyneema lineset, the perfect weight and length for optimal response and limited drag. If you like to fly inside, there’s room in the case for a second, shorter lineset so you can hone your skills on those winter days.
