We are constantly testing our gear in different ways, pushing the limits, experimenting, and generally having fun. Here is a quick video of one of our Kite testing sessions using some short kite lines. In the video we use 8m and 10 lines.
We have just opened a new Dragonfly Kite demo center in Vietnam. Located on the
Wind conditions in Mui Ne are super consistent during the peak winter season, December to March and get somewhat lighter in the shoulder seasons.

The right choice of kite line is essential if you want to get the maximum performance from your kite.
Our kite Lines are made from hi-grade uhmwpe fiber using the most modern construction techniques. This is combined with a sophisticated extreme pre-stretching process to give you the best performance and lowest stretch. In addition a highly UV-resistant coating helps to reduce friction and prolong life and aids to lower water absorption. The optimized construction of our kite Lines ensures the best strength-to-weight ratio with minimum aerodynamic drag. Each kite line set is color coded for safety and ease of use.
- Color coded line for easy left/right and brake line identification
- Extra long sewn sleeved end loops for easy line attachment
- Strand: 8×1
- End looped
- Line Strength: 400kg
- Line Length(s): available in 20m and 25m
Dragonfly Kites use the Single Point Inflation System (SPI). The Struts are connected to the leading edge via hoses, so that the kite can always be rapidly inflated and deflated from one single point. Continue reading “SPI Inflation System”
