TEST: KOTA-KITES – BATTLE FOR AIR SUPREME

Which flies higher and which loops better? The test clarifies that.
DENMARK – LONELY KITING ON THE BALTIC COAST

KITE presents five spots in a short check.

BRANDS – CRAZYFLY
KITE was allowed to take a look behind the scenes of the kite and board production at the Slovakian family company Crazyfly. “Made in EU” – Crazyfly takes that really seriously. From the injection-moulded plastic part for the bindings to the carbon bar and self-welded bladders for the kites, Crazyfly produces almost every part in its own factory.
