Rainbow Diamond kite
Nice flyer but small size limits it’s wind range compared to bigger Diamonds
- Winds: Medium
- Size: 700mm x 570mm

The Rainbow Diamond kite is a small kite that flys well in medium winds. Being pretty small, it will not fly in as light a wind as other larger diamonds like the Wave or the Unicorn but it’s a nice kite for it’s price. Made with ripstop nylon sailcloth and fiberglass, the same materials we use on our bigger kites, it will last for years.
Suitable for children aged 4 to 10, the Rainbow Diamond kite is very stable in the sky. Kids love to watch it as it wiggles and dances from side to side but it’s also very steady position in the wind. This is exactly what you want a childrens kite to do.

Diamonds are Single String kites suited to kids of all ages that fly best in medium winds. All children , even young kids, will find our Diamonds really, really easy to fly. Just hold ’em to the wind and up they will go.
a very traditional design, diamond kites have been around for thousands of years. We’ve updated and modernised them a fair bit with great materials like ripstop nylon sailcloth and strong fibreglass frames but the joy and pleasure for kids flying them is still the same!
Diamond kites need slightly more wind then, say, delta designs but their shape, and the long tails we put on them, make them really stable in the sky as the wind picks up. Is one shape better then the other? No, not really…they are just ‘different’. Deltas are usually better in light to medium winds while Diamonds are better in medium to fresh winds.
All of our diamond kites are super simple to put together. Just slip 2 sticks (we call them rods or spars) across the back and you’re ready to fly.
