Sure you can buy one, but did you know it's not hard to make a soft sled yourself?
The instructions in my free e-book show you how to make a soft sled kite step-by-step. All is illustrated by high-quality closeup photographs. But first, let me tell you a few things about this kite, which "looks like a bought one" when in flight.
- The kite is 60 cm (24 in.) long.
- These are also known as para-sleds since the inflatable spars are similar to the open cells of a parafoil.
- In flight, the MBK Soft Sled copes with a respectable range of wind speeds, from fairly light to moderate.
- Although big sleds have a reputation for tremendous pulling force, the MBK Soft Sled has a very light pull on the flying line. This is due to its small size.
- Like most soft kites, setup time is essentially zero. Just attach the flying line, and let some breeze into the inlets to inflate.
- The whole kite and bridle roll up into a compact bundle. It would fit in many jacket pockets and some jeans pockets too.
