Durability Of The New 2003 Kites

forum for kitesurfers


Postby Guest » Sun Nov 24, 2002 10:18 pm

Durability with any of the new 2003 kites, no matter what brand they are, is going to play a major role in kite sales for 2003. As all the manufacturers continue to increase the performance levels in their kites, the competition will get tighter, and people are going to look towards durability as a real determining factor in which brand they decide to buy. I do hope all of the manufacturers are doing their home work on building stronger more durable kites while maintaining and/or increasing the performance level of their kites. I do think it is a huge mistake to increase performance at the cost of durability. People will love the increase in performance initially, and then as the months pass by they will end up hating the kites because they have self destructed under normal use and are worth nothing. It can be very hard to overcome a “poor qualityâ€
