NPW 21 Artic
NPW 21 8sqm used in Fram Havn on Ellesmere Island on the sea ice - this was at latitude 79 degrees - about 1000 km from the North Pole. It flew very well and easily pulled Chris and his sled (about 150kg in total) in a light wind of about 9knots. The kite was easy to fly and moved well in the sky. The kite is wonderfully light to pack and carry around and easy to set up. Another experienced kiter who had brought much heavier kites was quite jealous. He said that mine was the ideal expedition kite. .
