Sting

Flexifoil Sting

Flexifoil are proud to release the all new Sting for 2007.  This 4-line kite has been designed with power kiting in mind and builds upon the hugely successful 2005/6 Sting series.

> Completely new design and canopy shape for 2007
The canopy of the Sting has been completely redesigned using the latest Flexifoil R & D design processes.  This has enabled Flexifoil to develop a kite with amazing flying characteristics.

The Sting is easy to fly, with simple direct control that really makes you feel that you are connected. Good, solid power is delivered with clean, steady acceleration right across the wind-window.

The new ‘leading edge’ mesh provides the kite with exceptional stability meaning that you do not need to worry about it folding or falling even in gusty wind conditions. This has also led to the easy re-launch facility. The Sting is one of the easiest kites ever to re-launch.  Just moving one handle allows the kite to roll on its leading edge. They flip and go back up smoothly and easily inspiring confidence in all levels of flyers.

The Sting redefines the power kite. It is a simple, patient and stable kite to fly which helps new kiters develop their kiting skills in a safe and comfortable way.

> Size range extends
The Sting also has an addition to the size range for 2007.  The new 3.3m really packs a punch and bridges the gap between power kite and traction kite. Whilst the full size flyer will find it a gutsy and fun recreational kite, smaller flyers will find it the ultimate in introductory traction kites. With controllable power and swift turning response it is up to both jobs.

> High wind, ultra stable, safe traction
The Sting also has a place in the kit bag for advanced kite buggy pilots as an ultra stable, high-wind traction engine. During testing in North Wales the Sting was used in winds exceeding 50mph! As this kite is so unbelievably stable, non aggressive and super strong, kiting in conditions that would otherwise be classed as unsuitable is now possible due to the Sting's gust absorbing properties (Flexifoil do recommend that you upgrade the flying lines if you are planning to use this kite for this purpose).

> What you get in the bag
The Sting is incredible value and is sold with everything you need to get flying. The package includes: kite, control gear (with Flexifoil safety system), flying lines, full comprehensive instructions, storage bag and some Flexifoil stickers. There’s even a one month no-quibble free repair just in case.

It is available either with 4-line control (handles) or 2-line control (bar). Both options are backed up by the Flexifoil safety system.

Available in: 1.2m, 1.7m, 2.4m, 3.3m.

Kite buggying and other traction kite activities can be classified as extreme sports. Wind is the only power source and is often very unpredictable. An attitude of caution and respect towards the wind is essential, for the novice just as well as the advanced pilot.

Guides to kiting

From un-packing your kite to getting it up in the air. The guides to kiting will help you understand everything there is to know about kite flying. MORE....

 

Safety

Common advice is to start with a relatively small kite in relatively low wind conditions(e.g. 2 to 3 m² kites in winds of no more than 10 mph) and progress to bigger kites or higher wind conditions as ability improves. MORE....

 

Buggying

It is single-seated and has one steerable front wheel and two fixed rear wheels. The driver sits in the seat located in the middle of the vehicle and accelerates and slows down by applying steering manoeuvres in coordination with flying manoeuvres of the kite. MORE....
