INCREDIBLE FUN 'STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BAG' FOR EVERYONE AGED 15+
Whether you are brand new to power kiting or a seasoned power kiter, the Sting kite is an easy-to-fly 'all-rounder kite' for everyone aged 15 years and up. Measuring 2.4m² with a wingspan of 2.6m, this is the most popular 4-Line Flexifoil kite. At the time of publishing, 14978 Sting kites have brought big smiles to faces across all continents.
4-LINES VS. 2-LINES
The main two lines on any power kite are used for steering. If you pull the left line, the power kite goes left. If you pull the right line, the power kite goes right.
On four-line power kites like this Sting, there are two additional lines that are attached to the trailing edge (rear) of the kite. These are the brake lines. The brake lines are used for reducing the amount of kite power. You tend to find brake lines on larger power kites where the power sometimes needs to be controlled in stronger winds.
As a side note, the lines won't tangle easily so please don't be put off by the number of lines.
LIFETIME MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE
A kite with such a long history, we know how reliable it is and thus it comes to you with a Lifetime Money-Back Guarantee. Rest assured, you can return this kite to us at ANY point in the future for a refund. That is how certain we are you will love it. Flexifoil is the only kite brand in the world to offer such a guarantee.
FOOLPROOF SAFETY SYSTEM
You attach comfy padded wrist straps (also called 'kite killers') to your wrists which are connected to the kite's brake lines via bungee cords. When you let go of the control handles, the bungees release the power lines and pull on the brake lines which immediately brings the power kite down to the ground. Everything is already set up so super simple to get started and you can fly with confidence knowing if you need to stop the kite quickly, you are able to in an instant.
SUPER EASY TO SET UP, LAUNCH AND FLY
The kite arrives with you 'ready to fly' with 'easy-to-understand' instructions. It can be launched by a friend or family member or you can self-launch. It gets its shape and rigidity by harnessing the power of the wind. The kite gets rammed with air through the front of the kite from take-off through full flight and holds its shape until you land it.
5-7 MINUTES TO LEARN
Power kiting with this kite takes on average 5-7 minutes to learn and within 15 minutes you will be on your way to mastering the kite.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND TAKES MINIMAL STORAGE
Easily stored under the front seat or in the boot/trunk of your car. Packs down surprisingly small and will fit neatly into your suitcase for holidays and can be easily stored in the top of your wardrobe or under the bed.
This kite is extremely strong and can withstand incredible forces (as can all Flexifoil kites). The latest design pictured here includes no rods, poles or fixed-parts so breaking it is almost out of the question! During testing, these kites are slammed into the ground at high speed over and over again. Each time the kite hits the ground, the air inside the kite expels and cushions the impact. Within seconds or a minute, you'll be flying again.
FAMILY FUN OR FLY SOLO
The ultimate kite for family fun times and holidays or even for a lunchtime flight during the working day!
Power kiting is a fantastic way to keep fit while having fun. Great for the upper body and particularly for your arms.
