Product Description

Anywhere, any time, the all-new 4-D makes stunt kiting a blast when nothing else will fly. Its 58" wingspan makes small spaces big so you can fly in tight quarters with ease. At barely 2-1/2 ounces, its super-light weight gives it the buoyancy to stay aloft in swirling breezes and even indoors, where walking backwards with short lines provides enough lift for a huge range of graceful aerobatics. The 4-D’s predecessor, the 3-D, set the world endurance record for indoor flying, and the 4-D improves upon it with more pull and stability as well as a much wider wind range that’s truly impressive for such a lightweight kite.

But super light doesn’t have to mean super-fragile. The 4-D’s high-modulus frame is made from solid carbon rather than delicate tubes, super-stiff but tough enough to bend in a circle without breaking. So this is a kite you can fly in regular winds too, up to 15 mph without overpowering or worry about breakage.

The 4-D is meticulously constructed from ultra-light Icarex polyester sailcloth and Mylar laminate for gossamer weight and a sheen like a cut gem as it passes in front of the sun. Its Microcarbon frame folds to just 23” and fits in a beautiful padded case that you can sneak into any pack or suitcase. To make it a cinch to put together, we designed a clever little wingtip fitting that instantly tensions and de-tensions the leading edge with no knots to fumble with. The bridle is clean and simple with limit knots so you’re always within the adjustment range. And the included 50-foot Spectra flying lines are the perfect length for smaller spaces while still allowing a generous wind window. If you like to fly indoors, there’s room in the case for a second, shorter lineset so you can hone your skills on those cold, dark winter days.

In the air, the 4-D has the precision and presence of a much larger kite. The line feel is balanced and responsive without being twitchy like most small kites. Its light weight and buoyancy makes it forgiving in turbulence and gives you time to recover as the gust passes. For freestyle fanatics, it’ll do a huge range of tricks without the heavy feel of many trick kites. While it takes smaller motions to fly, you don’t have to be an expert to have a blast, making it the perfect addition to any kite bag.

  1. great kite

    Posted by Gary Crenshaw on 23rd Aug 2010

    The 4D is a lot of work in a no-wind environment and a lot of wind just don't work. But for all other times this kite is great and a lot of fun. Its packaged nice and easy to store away. I got my moneys worth the first week I owned it so flying it for the next 30 years should be free.
