Hotter speed and turning than competition kites. Higher-quality exercise and livelier pull than power kites.
WindDances are "airgear," a new concept. They fly better and feel more exciting than typical stunt kites.
Our other advancements: Ergo T-handles that boost feel, control, exercise. Natural active FLY-a-kite skill.
Are WindDances for real?
Yes, very much so. But, as we begin to explain in What's New, many kite experts and kite shops don't want you to think so. Why? Because the REALITY of WindDancing clashes with the kite-culture BELIEFS that drive organized kiting.
Here's what's happening in regard to just one of those beliefs: Organized kiting believes that delta kites are far superior to parafoil kites. So strongly that when they see WindDance parafoils flying better than deltas they cannot accept that reality . . . nor can they allow anybody else to know how good our parafoils are.
Some think we are "waging war" against organized kiting. They are mistaken. We are merely functioning as a war correspondent, reporting organized kiting's unwitting war against "the essence of kite FLYING": 1) Against highly versatile kites (especially parafoils) that are aeronautical-engineered to FLY wonderfully in the three essential ways. 2) Against the easy basic skill needed for the hottest-possible performance and the best-possible exercise. 3) Against the new hand-friendly T-handles that enhance performance and exercise. They can't help it: their beliefs make them do it.
Some think we are being "negative." They are mistaken, too. What's negative are the many casualties of that war . . . including organized kiting itself. Learn more . . . including how you might be a victim.
So. How good are WindDances? Look at our video clips and see for yourself. It's all there: Hotter speed & turning than 'performance' kites. Wonderful performance in near-zero winds. Sharp turns, tail-down spin landings, and relaunches like delta sport kites. Hairpins and side-edge down-turns better than deltas. Flying them as exercise machines: the "WindDancing Workout." And more.
They are easy to fly, too.
Our customers certainly think WindDances are for real. Here are years of customer feedback . . . including how WindDances are everything we claim them to be.
How did we develop parafoils this good? By continuing to innovate and engineer the 'impossible' as we've done with other products for years. This time we used our specialty, our deep understanding of aeronautical engineering. And a decade of refining.
