the 2001 ltr is similar to the 2000 free air / classic (i think
it's classic untlil 6.5m² and the bigger sizes are the free
air shape) but they used a different material to make it more stable -
but they got heavier. very cheap kites ...

like all other '2000 kites, the LTR does not provide as much
lift as the brand spanking new 2002 high-performers, but
you'll be able to ride with them and fly in acceptable heights :wink:

It is a good kite to start with, but you won't use it for long.
IMO it is wasted money, if you don't get it very cheap somewhere.

hi,
ltr doesn´t work. material is very heavy but it even torn if you blow up the tubes.

by a used free air/ar 3.5 or something else

I have to agree faceplant, with a used AR 3.5 or FreeAir you will have more fun and don't waste money
