Foil kites


When it was first introduced as a high-end fabric, Chikara was particularly targeted towards the paraglider and high end kite markets, industries that require high quality fabrics which are wear and tear resistant, have extreme airtightness, and are low stretch. Chikara is therefore especially suited for the creation of foil kites.

The top buggy kite, the Peter Lynn Vapor, is made of Chikara.
