Equipment

Airheads Equipment

T5/Taipan

Our standard team kite is the Airdynamics T5 Taipan, designed by Peter for the Airheads. We also use the Airdynamics Insider as a freestyle/polyvalent kite, and the XE is our preferred choice for multi-kite flying. More information on the Airdynamics website

Chinese Dragon Kites

Traditional Chinese Dragon Kites imported from Weifang by Airdynamics. We have probably the largest collection of Dragon Kites in Europe; for most events we use our 3 30m dragons; we also have 50m and 80m kites; the 80m is only suitable for large events - it needs a very large arena to fly.

Tails

The 100ft tails are an important part of the Airheads display; each tail is individually designed by Valerie as a unique art piece. If we aren't flying them with sport kites, we fly them from lifter kites.

Fighter kites

Preferred fighters are classic tissue by Babu Khan, Macs and more recently the intruiging Bai designed by Stephen Hoath and pterodactyl by Karl Longbottom..

Rokkaku

We have a stack of rokkaku kites which were made specifically for the public to join in.

Airheads Rev

We occasionally fly 4-Line kites - we use the Airheads redesigned rev; based on the classic Revolution kite but with different proportions, an active bridle and magic stick system proposed to us by the French Team Crazy Drivers (thanks!) and refined by Paul.

Climax lines

We normally use the excellent Climax lines for sport and single line kites. See the Climax lines website for details.
