Airtime "Orange" Leading Edge Bladders
Ask a question
Lighter, stronger, faster. ORANGE is an AIRTIME kite innovation. Let kite designers build the kites, let the bladder experts improve the bladders.
All bladders used with the U-STICK bladder system are provided without valves. You choose the bladder by length and then choose the valves to match your kite's set up. You then attach the valves you want where you want by simply "peeling and sticking".
Airtime ORANGE bladders are between 35%-50% lighter than stock bladders. Reduce the weight of the average 14m, 7 strut bow kite, by almost an entire pound (454 grams).
The leading edge bladder blanks are made of a single piece of high quality american made poly folded in half and welded on one side only. All bladders are oversized in diameter so that they never fully expand inside the sewn sleeve of the kite. This eliminates any need for the bladder to stretch allowing for longer life.
All bladder blanks are pre-talced on the inside to aid in installation and simplify their use.
Airtime ORANGE bladders were designed to be strong. Airtime redesigned the very material that bladders are made from to make them resistant to damage from twists, improper installs, and unsupported bladder ends. ORANGE bladders are stronger than any other bladder ever offered for kites. If you've ever had a blown bladder tip ruin a good session you'll love ORANGE.
Take weight off your kite and your bound to feel a difference. The material is not only about half the weight of traditional bladder material, but is much stiffer. Installing these bladders into your existing kite, not only makes it become much lighter, but the tubes also become much stiffer and no longer require as much air pressure to achieve the rigidity required by most modern kites. Put in simply - it makes your kite faster through the air!
Carry them with every ride.
