Kite flying in the country Ajaccio ©®

it must be remembered that a "classic" line size of around 25m offers a good compromise between kite responsiveness.

By opting for shorter lines, we reduce the window of use but we gain in maneuverability and control.

Conversely, with longer lines, the kite will tend to respond less well to the orders of the pilot but we will benefit from a larger window while fetching the wind higher (and therefore certainly stronger) and stable).

The resistance of a set of lines corresponds to the resistance to the power of traction generated by the kite that they are able to cash without breaking.

Most small kites generate almost no traction, 50 or 75kg resistance lines are often enough to evolve under normal conditions.

Normally, this kind of information is specified on the card. If this is not the case, be aware that true speed kites may require lines of resistance up to 140kg.

Whether connecting the lines to the kite's bridle or handles, only one knot is needed, the "lark's head".
