Orange strut valve

Postby BreezeSleaze » Sat Nov 08, 2014 5:11 pm

Will a "orange" kite valve work on a regular kite bladder? Or does it have to go with an orange bladder?

If you clean the bladder very thouroughly the orange valves will work 8 out of 10 times depending on the material used to produce the old bladder. That being said there is a reason there are 2 different valves with different adhesives available and the Fix Kit valve will adhere better than the orange one.
We however know many people with success on with the Orange valve on a PU bladder so it's well worth a shot!
