gliding and floating in slow motion
the minimalist approach at the developement of the de tomaso series becomes manifest in reduced light construction and balanced flight characteristic.
less radical than the original urban ninja, this compact kite is much smoother: agreable light pull in the hand, long airtimes, a lot of time to prepare the next move, easy to control. assembling and handling are simple.
for experts in flying our ul single line kites, the de tomaso superleggera will also be quite an agreable experience. though it requires a sensible and accurate setup of the moves to complete them (low mass and a bit increased aspect ratio compared to the dt volante), it will reward your precise, crisp inputs with slow and floaty glides.
so, the de tomaso superleggera is easy to fly for everyone, but a bit more demanding for the connoisseur, flying the elegant slo-mo style, especially with the film version of the kite.
flights in stronger winds
the optional stabilizer extends the wind range of the kite towards stronger winds. flights with the superleggera will be calmed or stable, depending on the smoothness of the wind. without wind, the kite behaves a bit more agile with the stabilizer. thus, the superleggera is able to fly in a huge wind spectrum, high up in the sky or playful on a short line.
