FEATURES

The 52 g/m2 canopy is sewn in a Fusion Frame to make the kite more durable.

  • 142 g/m2 Code155p dacron (red in illustration) is used in the wingtips and TE.
  • 95 g/m2 Fusion canopy (gray in illustration) is used at LE and as intermediate layer in the TE.
  • Battens in the wingtips prevent canopy flutter in loops.

At LE side the canopy is sewn to the Fusion frame which is further reinforced with an insignia tape before the canopy is sewn to the LE. 

At TE side the canopy is sewn to the Fusion frame which is then sewn to dacron which is at the end reinforced with (first) single layer insignia and final 8mm with double layer insignia. 

The Ventum Smart (closing) Seam is unique. Using M18 thread (thicker than standard), each segment of the closing seam is seperately closed with 3cm overlap on both sides using the same holes. This method is more work but the result is that the main seam is double strength where the LE segments join, without adding more holes in the material.

The industry standard method is to use M20 thread and sew tip to tip. On segment joints the thread is known to breaks sometimes and therefore a double seam is sewn behind the main seam. This does however not prevent the main thread from breaking, it just acts as a backup seam when the main seam breaks. 

The leading edge, struts and part of the fusion frame are made with Code155P Dacron
