No pulley delta kites

Postby TooMuchEpoxy » Sat Apr 19, 2014 10:05 pm

Shopping for a no-pulley delta kite. Preferable 3 strut. I'm more concerned with simplicity and ease of maintenance than "performance". I'd also love to find a kite that doesn't have one pump. Tired of worrying if my bridle is worn out or not.

List as i know it

Slingshot Z
Mutiny F
Ozone Reo

Mostly concerned with price so i'm leaning towards the mutiny. Let me know if there's others I should add to the list.

i heard the 2014 envy removed the pulleys from the bridle, haven't tried it yet, stoked to see how the kite performs now.

Ozone Catayst also fits the bill more all around kite. The REO is spedidic to surf style.
