There is also Swiss brand Switch kites. They have direct sales and really very good prices. Their Nitro, elements kites are very well known. Also there is RRD or TEN kites which are also in low prices.
They are a New Zealand brand.

Re: Seat Harness Manufacturers

I wouldnt buy Prolimit. I went through 2 seat harnesses in 1 year. Both times i had to fight to get replacement. After the 2nd one broke i got a refund.

Go with the brand that has the new magic fabric. Which is any brand announcing their new model year kites. Sorry, just kidding, I couldn’t resist. I’ve never had any durability issues with Cabrihna or Ozone kites. It depends on how u use them. Lots of people kiting are just going up and down the be...

Id disagree with that. Ive been flying V9 ozone edges. Fantastic kites but my 9 and 11 both have had leading edge repairs from stress rips in exactly the same place after only 15 months( All i do is boost and only in one direction) It all becomes very anecdotal though. Considering the number of Edg...

Re: most durable kite brands/models

I really don’t think there is a lot of difference between the kite brands regards durability. You’d be better choosing a kite that suits your needs and is from a local store that will support you. Id disagree with that. Ive been flying V9 ozone edges. Fantastic kites but my 9 and 11 both have had l...
