Framed Power Kites

(video from YouTube – by KiteMoonraker)

While as ideal for traction use (buggy, board, etc) due to less predictability and handling on the edge of the window, the rigidity of Framed Power Kites can sometimes provide power in lighter wind ranges when others cannot. These are specially designed power kites with spars, but traditional framed sport kites can also be stacked to multiply the amount of power.

WARNING : These kites can produce tremendous power and should be used with extreme caution.
