Detox Manufacturing Insights

What it takes to build a competition machine

There is a lot more to our kites than what is apparent. They are designed and manufactured with competition and competitors in mind and today we would like to give you some insights into the process of bringing one of these pieces of (in our opinion) art, to life.

In these videos, we share with you our almost 30 years of expertise in making and developing kites and techniques to make them better. Its been a taught decision to publish this content, its taken literally decades of work to arrive at these techniques we are showing here, but we believe that it is important to share them.

As a competitor using our top-level kites, you must be able to, not only service your kite but fully understand the nitty-gritty on it. The downside is that we are releasing a lot of information that can be copied and misused, well life is like that and we trust in the honesty of people, yeap, quite naif but is how we are.

By no means we pretend that these techniques are the best or better than anybody else, it is just the way we do things and what works for us. We sincerely hope you’ll grab some tricks you can use or at least have a good time watching it. Now enjoy the videos!
