If you’ve never flown a power kite before, you’ll want to try one of these! 4 line kites give you absolute control – you can stop dead – spin on the axis – make the kits go backwards – absolute control. This quad offers excellent performance and control. Quads are not easy to learn to fly compared to a 2 line kite but once you’ve got it, it’s very easy to get going in a buggy, on a snowboard or landboard or just flying around at the beach. Quads have great pull per square metre for their size and have got a constant power delivery all along the wind window.
For recreational use:Quads are great for skidding and jumping and it’s a great way to getting used to flying 4-line kites. When steering these in medium winds you will start to feel the pull of the kite. Don’t run forward when the kite starts pulling, just lean back and slide on your feet.
For buggying:Jump into a buggy with a 4 line quad and you will experience what this kite can do. Whether it be for recreational cruising, freestyle or racing for fun – this kite will give you endless hours in a buggy.
For landboarding:Using quads for landboarding is a fantastic choice. With its constant pull with no surprises this kite will get you cruising and sliding along without any trouble whatsoever!
Features:– Constant Power: making it easy for those less experienced to get going on a landboard or in a buggy. After steering the kite down into the wind – you don’t really need to work the kite because it keeps pulling with constant power. – Constant Flying Speed: very predictable flying behaviour. The 2.7 does not suddenly accelerate and the flying speed as well as the turning is predictable which is great for people who are starting off buggying or landboarding.
