  1. Hi all I'm aware the go-to material for quads like revs are the 3/4oz icarex ripstop nylon. But anyone can help with determining the thread count and density of such .75oz ripstop rev sails use? Assuming 1sqm or sqf. Thanks much!
  2. hello, i try to find a Revolution indoor. i will consider if it is a stack to. Thank you
  3. Hi all - putting up another fun raffle item as part of our fund raising efforts for the coming off season... It's almost extra special, seeing as there are no more B-Series being made and there are only 225 tickets available! (NOTE: prize is STD in lime combo, as pictured) NO subscription required to enter, you just need raffle tickets... We'll be drawing ONE winning ticket as soon as all tickets are sold for this brand new, never flown Revolution B-Series STD directly from the KiteLife prize basket - what's included? B-Series STD sail in lime / combo (hand-signed by JB, can personalize) OPTIONAL upgrades ($): LE tabs, Wear Strips and/or 2nd Stitch 13" handles w/ Pro leaders 2 wrap frame 3 wrap frame Kite sleeve DVD I have personally opened this package, swapped TK's pro leaders onto the handles and made sure everything is properly configured to fly well... This package is almost ready to fly - just add your even length quad lines, drive your stake into the ground, put the handles over it and walk downwind. Note, this is not a B-Series PRO, it's a pure factory model in custom colors but it becomes fairly "Pro-esque" if all the upgrades are done. Tickets are $5 each (via PayPal/Visa/MC/Discover/AmEx), 225 tickets are available, we'll use a numbered spreadsheet and ticket numbers will be issued accordingly, drawing shortly after the last ticket (#225) is sold using the same random method as our regular subscriber drawings - and we will ship anywhere in the world, all entries are welcome! -- Click here to buy your tickets! -- (link does not work on TapaTalk - use web browser) As always, TK and I extend our deepest thanks for your support, past and current - we wouldn't be able to do what we do without you.
  4. Everything needed to go out, and fly, this kite is in excellent condition, the sail is still crisp. Condition scale of this kite is a solid 8 out of 10 Revolution Supersonic RTF Agility With A Little Less Pull! The lighter, more forgiving of the Speed Series, the Supersonic is on par with the Shockwave in speed, agility, precision, and all around outstanding performance. With somewhat reduced pull and easier maneuverability, the Supersonic can readily contend with all wind conditions. The 90" wingspan (7 1/2 feet) and overall weight of only 10 ounces the SuperSonic can perform in a wind range of 4 to 20 mph. The speed is awesome, the Supersonic has been clocked flying over 70 mph maintaining total controllability and flies in reverse as fast as the 1.5 SLE flies forwards! If you are a speed enthusiast with great wind conditions and the ultimate thirst for speed, the Supersonic will quench your thirst and give you back some change! The Revolution Supersonic comes complete with kite, Bag, extra rods, Laser Pro Gold lines 150# x 100', Stainless Steel Ultra Light 11" handles. RTF Skill: Intermediate To Expert Wind: 4 - 20 mph Leading edge length: 90" Height: 22" Weight: 10 oz. Structure: Advantage graphite SLE Ultra-light $200.00 Free shipping in the US when you use PayPal friends & family option I'm getting out of kiting, so there will be more kites, and goodies to come, need funds for a recumbent tadpole trike. Better photos available upon request!

  8. I'm well-experienced with dual-line stunt kites, and am going to buy a Revolution quad. In doing research, I'd like a better understanding of the differences I would experience between the Revolution EXP on the low-end, and the B-Series on the high-end. I'm not really worried about the price difference, and I'd like to own a kite that can keep up as my skills continue to improve. But I also don't want to waste money on a more expensive kite like the B-series or New York Minute if the flight characteristics are only marginally different than the EXP. So in short, what makes the B-series a better kite than the EXP? Also, does the mid-vent have the widest wind range?
  9. I've been doing a fair bit of urban/street kiting on my Revs recently and I thought I might be able to share some tips. Feel free to chime in with what works for you. Pick your area. Clean air isn't important, in fact it adds an element of excitement. Cars and people MUST be considered, law suits can eat up future kite purchases. Consider street lights if going out at night. Obstacles like trees, shrubs can be detrimental but signs, bike racks and playground equipment are a plus! It never hurts to have a look around before you pull any gear out. Pick your equipment. Buildings can both cause a wind shadow and a wind funnel. Distances of free space will affect your line length. Pick your time. Watch out for midnight watering schedules. Or even early morning deliveries. Most importantly is to be safe about it.
