The Fat Lady being tested at Pismo Beach, CA stop.

After focusing on the European market for the past 6 years, Blade Kites now has representation in the USA.  Led by Mark Miller, Blade is launching into the USA on the shoulders of its new light wind kite, the Fat Lady, which has specifically been designed to change 9-15kt kiting.

The Fat Lady’s lightweight 3-strut design makes it one of the if not the lightest and fastest turning 17m on the market, and directly challenges the notion that light wind kiting isn’t fun.  To help welcome the Fat Lady into the USA, BladekitesUS is offering customers and shops a free 5m Trigger with the purchase of a complete Fat Lady.

Check out  for more information on the Fat Lady and the free kite promotion, the performance freeride kite with easy handling and brisk turning, the Trigger, or the kitelooping unhooked freestyle C/SLE hybrid, the Prime.
