Flexifoil Sting 2 (II) Power Kite >>
The Flexifoil Sting is ideal for the first
time kiter, with simple to control and exceptionally stable
Good, solid power is delivered with clean,
steady acceleration right across the wind-window.
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).
Four lines are more of a challenge to master
than two lines as the flyer has the added dimension of the
brake lines which can be used to exert maximum control over
the kite. The Flexifoil Sting can achieve advanced manoeuvres
such as reverse launch, spinning the kite on its axis, regulating
the turn rate, positioning and holding the kite anywhere in
The kite is great for the more adventurous beginner or the flyer who is ultimately interested in moving on to traction kiting. These flyers can develop their skills on the Flexifoil Sting before moving onto the Rage or Blade.
The kite comes complete with a wrist strap safety system which allows the flyer to let go of the controls if they get into difficulty, without losing the kite.
Great for improving your flying skills before
you move on to the higher performance kites. Perfect for flyers
who want to get into kite flying with four lines instead of
Flexifoil Four Line Handles
with Wrist Leash Safety System:
Rubber Handles for extra grip and suitable for the whole range of Flexifoil Traction Kites.
Complete with parking loops and integral safety system with wrist strap and safety leash - makes for tangle-free release and means kite is more easily retrievable.
Colour coded with neoprene 'comfi-grips' to prevent chaffing.
Sting 2 (II) Spares:
Good quality first time kite! John Lake
The kite handles the gusts well and the handles
with the neoprene covers on make the flying nice and comfortable.
This kite has loads of pull and is great fun to fly in high winds or gentle wind and is very easy to set up and fly. I was hoping it would have a little more lift but I guess it's a good thing that it doesn't as it has allowed me to get used to the pull, learn how to find the wind window and control the kite properly without worrying too much.
The Flexifoil 3.3m Sting generates enough pull to drag me across the grass and sand in a low / moderate wind.
In summary, an all-round great learner kite with plenty of pull and not too much lift. Great build quality and reasonable price.
Definitely recommend Powerkiteshop too. Great prices and very quick delivery!
A dream to fly! Gary Burnett
I must also congratulate Powerkiteshop for another efficient delivery!
You won't be disappointed with the Sting! Jowie Adkins
Firstly, I couldn't be more impressed with Powerkiteshop. All the information they give is great, prices are unbeatable and the delivery is amazing, even knowing in advance what time your stuff is going to arrive.
I'm brand new to this and I went for the Flexifoil Sting based on Powerkiteshop's recommendations of a kite 3-4m. I went for the 3.3 as it seemed the cheepest, decent way to get started. (elsewhere I've seen for £50 more, I dont think you'll beat the prices here) it hasnt dissapointed me yet.
I've been out in gentle breezes and stronger winds and every time I've been able to get it flying. It handles amazingly well, it feels like your painting across the sky and I love how you can feel every movement through the lines. I'm fairly sure I could fly it blind folded. It only took an hour or two before I knew I had to get a landboard and so far the Sting is doing the job perfectly well, though I get the feeling as I get more daring and better at it, I may want to upgrade to a bigger kite. but yeah, if like me you are looking to get started on landboarding and don't have a lot of money to splash around, dont worry, you won't be dissapointed with the Sting.
The handles are also fine, again, as I get better I expect I'll upgrade to a bar but for now I dont need it. Knee pads though! Lots of knee pads! Enjoy x
