Curious about ALL WHITE kites

Pages: (1/5) > >>


I have noticed numerous UL kites being either all white or mostly white with a dash of color. Since we just discussed all black kites I was wondering why so many White ULís? Are they easier to see when flying? Being in Seattle with a lot of overcast days it would seem they would get lost in the sky here.


My old eyes have no problem.

Simple... clouds are light as air and clouds are white. What more is there to say.


Being from seattle myself I am ordering a 7l with bright yellow and gold, with a hint of black and silver... better safe than sorry... :-) I will be ordering the JoE Talon... once my car finally sells... :(   ... with that said, i'd stay away from all white kite anywhere in the north west... but then again... that's just my opinion.   :-)


I am going to guess that people like the ethereal idea of the all white UL kite....flying in a breath of wind....

Indoor kites: white is a great color for them since they will pick up lighting very well in a performance type setting....You will rarely see a non-white Great Deca flown in doors in a performance for that reason...

I will admit that in my eye certain shapes call for certain colors....
an Oiseau by Ramlal Tien or a Spirit Man by Martin Lester look phenomenal in white...any other color loses a bit of my lust for that kite....
