    LE tabs (service available for Revs)

    UPDATE: We are no longer offering these upgrade services, but hopefully this topic will serve to assist folks who do their own upgrades in the future. 🙏🏻 == Extend the durability, lifespan and performance of your 1.5 sized Revolution kite (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, B-Pro, printed sails, etc) with tab reinforcements along the length of your leading edge mesh - the exact same mods I make to my own own equipment, they are now available to other fliers upon request. Over 30 sails worked on so far! These mods will not prevent mesh tears entirely, but will make the kite more stable, reduce damage and ensure that your kite maintains it's important flight shape for much longer than normal. Ordering notes: All sails should be folded and sent without frames. Return shipping is included during check out, we pack and mail the sails via USPS Priority Mail flat rate box (US customers only), $13.45 covers shipping for up to 1-4 sails, $18.45 for 5-8 sails. All apparent dirt and sand should be cleaned out of the kites before sending (not good for our sewing machine) and a $10 cleaning fee will apply to each sail that we need to clean ourselves.

    Now in the final week of our UK / Denmark / France tour, just catching up by posting some pics and video here... You may need to view this topic in a web browser (mobile or desktop) for the links to appear, Tapatalk and the KiteLife app don’t always show them.

    That is a fact, however it’s also possible to force select companies to a new standard, and to raise pilots to a standard where they are using their equipment more thoroughly and aggressively, thereby balancing out somewhat... I know, I know, but I only work forward, not backward. 🤘

    Someone asked for this information, reposting for all you DIY folks who may want to do aftermarket mods to your kites that did not already include wear (stretch) strips and LE tabs. Honestly, every quad brand should include some version of these solutions right from the factory and I expect we’ll see more and more of it - they do significantly extend the life and performance of the kites, which is why they’re stock features on the Djinn.

    Thanks also to everyone who let me know about the problem so quickly - took us a minute to go back and forth between the forum software people and my server techs to identify the exact problem.
