hey, dude!

if u mean the bladder:

it's not that important that it fits 100% exactly.
so, just try an ARX - bladder instead, it should work!

Hi Ryan,

can't you repair your bladder?
What happened?

Cheers

Well to start off with a pam tree in sengal,
Which put loads and loads of little holes in it ,Which i spent hours fixing ,
Then my pump broke out there so, i sort of fixed it ,but in fixing the pump ,i was left with a nosel that was big then before ,which then strecthed the plug hole so now the air sipes out after about 1 half hours.

Hey. Any shop that sold or sells them should be able to sell or order for you the leading edge bladder on its own. Try looking at the shops on the internet. The cost of the bladder only should be about 170 US dollars. I personally sugest trying some of the new types of kite on the market. I promise it will lower your frustration levels, the big kites I fly are faster and easier to relaunch than my old Naish kites even when they are twice the size.

sorry to hear that.

I think it will be very hard to get a bladder for the AR5.
I would try Murdoc's suggestion and get a bladder from the ARX. IMO it should work.

I'm pretty sure that Naish Hawaii has them. Try phoning them at 1-800-767-6068. They are open 9-5:30 Hawaii time. This time of year Hawaii time is two hours behind Pacific Standard time. They also have an online store but no exact details on what bladders are in stock. Same with Kiteworld. Call toll free at 866-548-3967. They're on the west coast. If you order from either, be very careful with what method of shipping they use. Very much worth paying extra for Fed Ex or UPS 2nd Day Air. Good luck!
