    Product feature
    1. Dyneema lines
      The "high molecular weight" polyethylene composition of the lines offers excellent precision for steering. It is 40% stronger than a standard line and has much less distortion. When flying, the lines won't slacken, which makes them much more responsive for the user.
    2. Carbon frame
      The R 244 is light and rigid thanks to the carbon frame. This improves the kite's responsiveness and precision. The R 244 is the highest-precision kite by Tribord. A kite designed for free style with exceptional flight quality.
    3. Line winder
      The kite comes with a line winder and steering straps. Attach the lines to the kite bridles and completely unwind them

    • excellent value for money

      Used for 1 week or less
      Initial thoughts are its good for ballet/precision as i managed to do combination tuns and fly boxes using my 45m lines. I also managed to perform axles and half axles.

      I would describe the build quality as similar to HQ kites and the kite looks well made and robust (it is framed with 6mm pultruded carbon tubes). The leading edges are made from one carbon tube so the leading edges can't be broken down and it is about 1.6m long when packed away. As an improvment, i would suggest having a ferrule in the leading edges (like all other kites) so it can be folded down to about 90cm or so. This particular kite buzzed alot but i think that's because the leech line needs tightening. If you provided a light wind version framed in 5mm carbon, then this would be a very good set of "team kites" to purchase.
      here is a video of me flying it-

      I have been flying kites for many years and bought this to use as a low cost trainer kite. Flies well in moderate winds and capable of basic tricks with ease. Can't fault it for the money and looks good too.
