The Salida Sled

The latest version of the pocket - Salida - Sled of Andreas Ågren. What a design!! (special are; Easiness to make- once you have the plan, reinforcements for the bridle incorporated in the single layer of fabric etc...) I am looking forward to better wind to test it out.

New Project


The kite is almost 4,5m wide and 1 meter deep (see plan).  The 2 spreaders in the length or only 6mm.  The rest is supported by 18 bridles of 10 long.

Second test flight of my new kite. We replaced the 9 spreaders with 4mm carbon fibre.  When the wind is picking up the bridle isworking well.   Once the wind is dropping down, the kite is becoming flat and uncontrollable... I have to add a bowline.
