Re: High Pressure kite by Bruno Legaignoux

That means the bending moment goes up with the cube of the radius, but only linearly with the pressure. Lots of stiffness with radius or diameter, but less for pressure. supports my feeling that 5 cm diameter is not enough. But as I said before: A 6 m HP-Rally with 10 cm diameter would make me tota...

OK, thanks spritrig for your calculations. Personally I'm not so fond of any high pressure possible exploding things near me even if they wouldn't be risk for health.
I pump my bike with 60 PSI. No explosions so far 8)

Several brands contacted me ...
Of course - as there is a big market for kites that are easy to handle.
With a thin front tube you don´t have to depower in gusts anymore. You just hold the bar and go ... :thumb:
