T5 Taipan Light/UL-SUL

We developed the Taipan Light for extremely good low wind behaviour, but retaining the trickability of the standard kite. Available with UL or SUL framing.

Compared with the standard kite, we've used tape for the leading edge instead of Dacron - this saves about 40 gm and we've found the tape is plenty strong enough.

We make this in 2 versions; in UL form the frame is SkyShark 3PT Black Diamond leading edge and spreaders, with P90 spine; as an SUL we use SkyShark 2PT for the leading edge and other weight savings like tube ferrules in place of solid carbon.

Optimised for 2.5-8mph wind for the SUL or 3-10 for the UL. Both versions will perform comfortably for the STACK minimum wind for competition and are strong enough to cope with gusts well over the rated range. You can use this kite as part of a 2-kite set (with the V1). We can supply an additional stiffer P300 spine which will improve handling in the upper wind range.

Price is £200 Email to order or for more information
