Interesting to know they are made from nylon. I would think foil kites are made from polyester since poly doesn't absorb water, stretch and has better UV resistance than nylon.jakemoore wrote: Mostly polyurethane coated nylon, depends on brand.
Ripstop tape is fine, often without sewing.
It may not stick to some silnylons.
I might make a video of a repair on a trainer kite and post itJyoder wrote: Since the word “foil” has swamped search results toward hydrofoil and not foil kites, it’s getting harder to find info on foil kites. Any good links on how to approach sewing repairs, ripped seams, bridle anchors?
#69 Polyester would probably be overkill but it would work if you have nothing else. If you are using quality bonded #69 poly, then you can can size down to a 100/16 or even a 90/14 needle to reduce the hole size.Jyoder wrote: I have some #69 poly thread and 110/18 needles. Is that overkill for the lighter foil kite material?
