Highly recommended – excellent value

  • Size: 1.6 metre wingspan

The Backdraft is a high performance dual control stunt kite well suited to teenagers and adults both beginners or experienced flyers. This dual control will keep you on the beach for hours doing tricks you never thought you were capable of!

The Backdraft offers excellent performance and excellent value….we think this is one of the best value high performance kites available in Australia! It’s built-in quality is impressive and, aligned with it’s great performance, gives the Backdraft excellent Value for Money.

At 1600mm wingspan, it is big enough to give good pull in a wide wind range yet not so big as to be uncontrolable as the wind picks up. Like it’s bigger cousin the Offshore, and it’s Australian made counterpart the Wind Dancer, it is fast, it’s accurate, it’s got good power and, at the price, is a great pathway into true performance kiting.

High performance dual control kites need rigidity in their frame to get their, well, high performance. The Backdraft get this from it’s high quality 5mm carbon graphite rods. they are light and stiff…exactly what a stunt kite needs.

This is a serious dual control stunt kite for not-so-serious flyers. Great graphics – 3/4 oz ripstop nylon sail – 5.0mm tubular carbon frame. …Well Recommended… A great Freestyler

  1. adam

    Awesome Kite, even in the strongest winds performs amazing. Is very sturdy have crashed it hard multiple times and hasn’t broken. Only advice is order some extra carbon fibre rods so if you do break it you can fix it and keep doing some sick moves. Also the owners are great to deal with and have previously repaired my kite after not long having it and gave me a spare rod for free.
