Standard Spars - standard Peter Powell Kite spars are hollow fibre-glass tubes for lightness and strength. However they can get broken, especially if kites are crashed directly into hard ground. This doesn’t mean you have to scrap the whole kite, replacement spars (spine and side-spars) can be purchased from Peter Powell Kites.
High Performance Spars – Peter Powell kites can be fitted with carbon-fibre cross-spars, these are solid, but lighter and stiffer than the standard fibre-glass spars. This makes the kite more responsive, because there is less flex when the kite is manoeuvred.
