Fabric:- Alpha kites are made with 3/4ozs. Rip-Stop Nylon fabric Silicon coated both sides. Bridles are sheathed Spectra fiber.
Flying Lines:- Each kite comes complete with colored Spectra fiber flying lines suitable for its' size and Quad-Line Control Handles. Line length is approximately 65ft for all three sizes.


As with all sports equipment exposed to natural elements such as wind, sea water, dust, sand and sunlight, life expectancy varies. With heavy use in these conditions, Alpha kites can be expected to remain operationally effective for a minimum of 2 years. Of course, with moderate use and care, this time period can be lengthened considerably. To optimize performance, it is suggested that equipment be updated and/or replaced routinely.

Under the Alpha 2.5 Each Alpha kite comes in a sturdy shoulder bag with Instructions, Control Handles with "Kite Killers", Flying Line and Ground Stake.
The Alpha is a great value-for-money choice for beginners and experienced pilots alike. Its' medium aspect ratio and 16 cell layout make it an easy kite to control for all kinds of kite power fun. Great build quality and attention to detail as is usual from Germany based makers HQ Invento.
Though the smaller sizes are intended for strong winds and the larger sizes for light wind conditions, the operating range of each Alpha will largely depend on the flyers skill level with this type of kite.
 
Alpha lift Getting started:-The Alpha is a great recreational kite for the entry level flyer. It's also a good training kite for beginners looking to progress to more higher powered traction kites. No matter what type of kite you use for Kite Traction, there are a number of things to remember when selecting the best size to start with. The Alpha to use will depend on the Surface; (Skis on snow or ice, Kite Buggy on soft or hard sand, grass or hard ground, or Kite Board on water), the Wind Speed; flyer Skill and Experience and flyer Weight. Whether the flyer is a novice or has a lot of Traction Kiting experience, the best choice is the smallest kite that will produce enough power to move. It is essential not to be overpowered, not just because it's obviously safer, but upwind travel will be easier and less power is easier to manage. Any size of Alpha is ideal to get familiar with control on solid ground in modest steady wind. Once you are confident that you can control the kite, then progress to larger kites or Kite Buggy, Skis or Kite Landboard.

Quad Handles or Bar:- We believe that Quad Handles give the most control over the kite. Handles give maximum maneuverability and can be used with a line between the top connection points for use with a harness. A Control Bar offers a simpler control system and for some fliers, an easier approach to Traction Kite flying. Handles can be used for all kite traction activities, whereas we would not recommend using a control bar for Kite Buggying.




These kites produce considerable pull and are not suitable for inexperienced flyers under age 12. Always learn to control the kites before attempting kite traction activities. Sensible saftey precautions should be followed when flying these kites and protective clothing, especially sturdy shoes and a helmet should always be worn when using them for traction. Read instructions and safety warnings in with every kite.
