    Product Description

    ITW Dan Leigh Little Bear Delta Kite
    The most passionate and accomplished delta designer in the world, Dan Leigh’s high-aspect ratio deltas fly at amazingly high angles. Unsurpassed for all-around flying ability, they’re so good that people have been willing to wait up to a year to get one. Dan has been making them all himself and says: “If you can’t wait, please don’t order!” After 20 years of waiting for his kites, we’re working together and making his kites in China. We’ve upgraded the sails to ½-oz. Icarex polyester and updated the graphics, to make them look as good as they fly. An amazing kite, it literally leaps from your hand into the sky. Very popular with falconers, the Little Bear flies like an eagle and pulls like a bear. Its clipped wings develop more lift and its balloon keel prevents stalling during lulls. 6’-4” x 3’-11”. 6.9-oz. 47” case. Please note: all of Dan's kites have shipping lengths over 42" and can't be shipped to most international addresses. 2 to 12 mph winds. Use 75-lb. Dacron line.

    A LOT of kite for the money
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This kite goes up without fuss or hesitation in the lightest breeze and just keeps on going. It flies almost directly overhead and just sticks there. It's a great looking kite as well against blue sky or white clouds, and when they say it pulls like a mule, believe it! Using 75# line with winds that grew to 8-10 mph above the trees, my Little Bear really tugged. I am very impressed with this kite design by Dan Leigh, and will enjoy flying this well into summer here in Tampa when the Spring winds disappear and my larger kites may be grounded largely unless I go to the beaches.

    OWNED MY LITTLE BEAR SINCE 2000
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have owned my Little Bear since 2000. Luckily, I only had to wait a month for mine to come and it is signed by Dan! I fly this kite all the time and it has over 400 hours on it ~ an extremely well designed instrument and awesome fun to watch! All I have ever had to replace is the wood dowel in the back. The plastic end pieces have never broken and remain intact. I have had to do minor sewing on the ends, as it has come down hard a few times in 17 years! I could not recommend this kite enough ~ best design is the Delta and Dan is by far the master of this design! EXCELLENT COMPANY ~ INTO THE WIND SOLD ME STRING, STILL HAVE IT ALONG WITH MY KILLER WOODEN REEL!

    Hola a todos
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Hola a todos........... \ Este Delta es fabuloso. \ Los amigos de Into the Wind se quedaron cortos. \ Se despliega como Águila Real y jala como un oso peleador, lo hemos levantado con un carrete de 500' \ Sus colores resplandecen contra el sol, y se ven muy diferentes cuando lo tienes en la mano. Es un gran juguete para los mayores. \ C. Granados.
