This is the 116% version of the 90Three which makes it a fullsize 260cm wingspan kite and the overall weight is 349 gr. Similiar compared to the 90Three but much slower in tricks and performs very well in lower windspeeds, probably due to it’s size. Not recommended for use in higher windspeeds. I used c-grade Skyshark Nitro Strong (23 gram each) for the LE and LS. This (temporary) is available at Drachenmarkt (Ryll).

Super Ultralight

Krijn experimented by building a lighter sail (Spinnaker LE tunnels and light mylar reinforcements) and framing with lighter rods. Since the kite is big we call this the SUL. It flies and tricks in the lightest of breezes. Making it even lighter woudn’t make sense.
