Kite line is designed to handle dynamic loads in unpredictable wind while keeping a small cross-sectional profile to minimize drag. Kite line comes different lengths, usually around seven and thirty three meters. Kite line attaches the control bar to the kite using attachment cords on edges, also called the bridle. Most power kites use a configuration of three, four or five lines. The 5th line is used to aid in water re-launching or adjusting the kite's angle of attack.
At Kite-Line, we only offer the best in industry, so it should not come to any surprise that we only sell Q-Powerline. 39*Q-Powerline is the product of over five years of research and development focusing on creating a line specifically for the sports associated with traction kiting sports. The line is constructed with a unique core of high tenacity Spectra 2000 fiber, sheathed with and extremely tight braid of more Spectra 2000 fiber. We find that the line is the what traction kiting sports would find optimal. With virtually no stretch, there is very little time wasted making line adjustments. No sleeving is needed, making it easy to create sets to your personal preferences. Round cross sections minimize wind sucking drag, keeping the kite's forward speed at a maximum and response time to a minimum. With the tight external braid, dirt abrasion is minimized and made slightly stiffer than traditional lines, the lines are less prone to tangling.
