|Kite Surfing and Power
Kiting have really taken off in 1999. This
development gave manufacturers the opportunity to come up
with a variety of great new kite related products.
Ockert - Germany is once more ahead when it comes to the development of special kite flying lines. For extreme kite activities like kite surfing, traction and power kiting, the below described kite lines make an excellent choice.
Manufactured from CORAMID, a High-Tech-Fibre with the same characteristics (i.e. melting point, stretch) as SPECTRA or DYNEEMA, Braided Climax Yellow and Climax PROTEC offer additional advantages to the serious kite surfer or flyer.
A special impregnation procedure which
seals the fibres and a new braiding technique result in
an extreme thin and round line cross-section for perfect
aerodynamic behaviour. Forces acting on the line are
evenly distributed. Braided climax yellow has added UV protection
and also an improved resistance against abrasion. Pre-stretched,
this line is the direct link to your kite.
Braided climax yellow is specially imperagnated and polished. This process tightens the fibres, results in a smooth surface, minimum stretch, reduced line drag and UV and abrasion resistance. A sealed surface protects against penetrating sand and water and makes the line resistant to salt and most chemicals. Ideal for water and beach kite flying activities, even if you are not into kite surfing.
Climax Braided Yellow is available in a wide range of strengths (25daN/55lbs to 460daN/1000lbs), ready to fly on climax Multi Winder or on spools to allow you to make your own customised line sets.
On request from a leading UK Kite Surf and Traction Kite specialist, Ockert Germany has introduced 2 additional strengths (130daN/285lbs and 210daN/460lbs) of the already successful climax PROTEC kite line.
The advantages of this High -Tech-Line in lighter weights (55lbs - 220lbs) have already been experienced by many kite flyers, among them top ranking UK individual and team flyers.
technical procedure in line manufacture gives PROTEC
its outstanding qualities. Especially kite activities
where the line is exposed to dangers from abrasion will
gain from the advantages PROTEC has to
offer. 'The climax slippery polish'
(CSP), an innovation already in use with the existing PROTEC
line range, seals and PROTECts
the line. This added protection makes the line much more
abrasion resistant than ordinary Dyneema or Spectra lines.
In addition to added PROTECtion, PROTEC
lines are extremely slippery, have a low cross section
and a long-life quality which is of importance for
extreme kite flying activities where the lines never get
a rest. PROTEC is one tough line.
Manufactured from CORAMID, a similar fibre like Dyneema
or Spectra, characteristics like stretch etc.
are the same. Consequently PROTEC does
not 'cut' Dyneema or Spectra lines. But
PROTEC itself is difficult to 'cut' due
to its additional advantages. In tests even Kevlar
lines had their problems.
now available in a range from 25daN -210daN (50lbs-460lbs)
We believe that these are the power-lines everyone has been waiting for. Why not try them yourself so that you can judge the qualities and advantages this line has to offer.
