Bums soft kites are designed to be carried anywhere as they can all fold
down into stuff sacks. The pocket kites are small light pulling kites that
you can slip into your pocket and are ideal for all ages. The powerpack is
a larger kite based on the original 6pack. The difference, apart from
being larger, is the fact it has very light spars at the root of each fin.
It iis designed as a lifter. The paraforms
are totally soft but don't pull as much as you would think for their size. The
parafoils, on the other hand, are designed to lift loads into the sky.
These have been supplied to archeologists for aerial photography and to
the British Antarctic Survey for lifting weather surveying equipment. We
have even built man-lifters. The Spirit is designed for traction in a
variety of wind conditions. Paul has been up to 69mph in a buggy with a 2m
Spirit. Many items we carry in stock as standard or you can choose your
own colours. Special one off designs can be built or found on our specials
