thomas horvath is researching, developing and producing the single line zerowind kites, which he invented. they are distributed directly and only by the kite lab.
the flight concept
minimal synergetic zerowind kites are lightest flying objects. because you are giving subtle impulses, they float and glide in still air. calm.
our kites are highly optimized for this concept. each model celebrates its own refined flight caracteristic.
wing and delta design
wing designs feature a high aspect ratio for efficient soaring in broader space. compact delta shape low aspect ratio kites are agile and float in urban environment.
with a bit of wind you can enjoy static single line flights too.
minimal, swiss made
