Leading Edge Replacement Bladders (OEM)
These are universal leading edge bladders you use with our U-STICK valves to assemble replacements for almost any kite ever made. Yeah....we invented 'em and we publish a handy dandy sizing chart for the most common kites. Click here to access our chart. Made right here in our own factory in the USA. The bladders are measured from end to end in feet. If you have your bladder out measure end to endl and choose whatever size is equal to or longer than your original (don't you fudge on the measurement or you'll get yourself in trouble). Or just check the sizing chart, we probably list your kite. You may also want to know what the difference is between our "Long Life PU (original spec)" and "ORANGE multi-layer poly". Here's the difference. The PU is what comes in your kite from the factory. It's super stretchy, can handle abrasion, and moves easy when installing. It's weakness is that when it's installed incorrectly it can swell and burst (remember, I said it's super stretchy...yeah, you won't even notice it's in wrong until you hear the dreaded "POP"). The ORANGE is really stiff and it takes a whole lot more to get it to stretch. If you put it in wrong your kite will look all wonky but it won't pop. It's also about 30% lighter than the originals and the stiffness does add some rigidity to your kite. The downside of the ORANGE is that it's not as resistant to abuse. If you're the type that has a dirty kite and bladders full of sand and sea salt you'll probably want to go with the PU bladder.
