This entry-level kite is noted primarily for its sturdy design. It is sewn from light and strong ripstop nylon and the rods are made of almost unbreakable fiberglass. The setup is simple and the flying properties are extremely docile. It can be flown reliably even by beginners in a wide wind range. The drag forces are moderate, but solid - the flying speed doesn't overpower the pilot. It can be further reduced by adding on a tube tail. With a little practice, the Quickstep II can master simple tricks.
