A snap to assemble, launch and fly, our Diamond kites make it easy to decorate a room or the sky. The most iconic and recognizable kite style in North America, they’re popular because of their relative ease of construction and simplicity in flight. Typical diamond-shaped kites need a tail to help with stability. But some Diamond kites, like the Malay, with its two acute and two obtuse angles, which result in the elongated sail shape, are stable enough not to require a tail, although they still look great with one attached. Modern Diamond kites, sometimes referred to as Eddy Kites, after the designer who added a bow in the cross spar, are typically made with a dihedral that helps the kite to maintain its shape providing maximum sail area to catch the wind and consequently, increased lift.
