Re: Triple & quad ripstop

To be 100% objectif some kite manufacturers (don't know about the new Naish) are using thicker ( not stronger ) threads on their leading edge which is theoretically less likely to cut through the cloth. Roughly speaking the strength of a thread is determined by the square of its thickness so for th...

Re: Triple & quad ripstop

Another marketing gimmick I heard of lately is Naish advertising the "new" super strong thread used to stitch the leading edge or their kites.

Hydrofoil manufacturers come in 3 categories:
