Kite #1: Zero-G (Cerulean color)

Imagine a kite that glides magically on the lightest air currents, defying gravity with the lift of a high-performance sailplane and weighing less than 2 ounces. Toss it as a glider with no string attached, or soar through the sky with precise control just by pulling and releasing the line. The Zero G is a true canard-style aircraft, with the smaller wings facing forward in tethered and gliding flight.

Kite #2: 4-D Indoor (Cobalt color)

Anywhere, any time, the all-new 4-D makes stunt kiting a blast when nothing else will fly. Its 58″ wingspan makes small spaces big so you can fly in tight quarters with ease. At barely 2-1/2 ounces, its super-light weight gives it the buoyancy to stay aloft in swirling breezes and even indoors, where walking backwards with short lines provides enough lift for a huge range of graceful aerobatics.

Kite #3: Zephyr (Orca color)

The Zephyr is your dream machine if you appreciate the finesse of light wind flying and the subtler finger and wrist control you´ll develop after you master the basics. While not a fragile ultralight for zero-wind flying, it’s designed for those lighter, sweeter winds you’ll crave as you learn to stall, slide, and control the kite gracefully at the edges of the envelope.
