The Sunrise Delta kite is a large kite for children that flys really well in light and medium winds. It’s designed with a beautiful ‘stained glass’ effect of brightly coloured panels on a black background. The Sunrise kite is also very, very efficient because of it’s large sail area. This means it will fly in light winds but still stay up in medium and fresh winds also.
Made using high quality triple stitched ripstop cloth and 4mm fiberglass frame, the Sunrise Delta kite is an excellent flyer and it’s light weight makes it able to do it’s job as a light wind kite even better.
Here is a short video of a Sunrise Delta kite in the sky.
Delta kites are single string kites for children and they are very well suited to light winds. This light wind ability comes from a big sail area which generates lots of ‘lift’ to get the kite up nice and high. It is also important to keep deltas nice and steady in the air as the wind picks up. To make this happen we added long tails on them. These tails give the deltas ‘drag’ which keeps them stable in stronger winds.
A fairly modern design, deltas have only been around for about 80 years, no where near as long as diamond shapes that go back thousands of years. Kids love flying deltas because they are easy to fly, they fly in light winds and stat up nice and steady in medium winds.
It’s very easy to assemble, super easy to fly and look great in the sky.
Because deltas are mainly suited to light winds, we’ve extended the wind range of the Junior Delta kite by adding it’s wingtip tails giving it more stability. But you can get even more stability in stronger winds by adding even more tail.
