Level One has developed two new stunt kites this year.
1. The BADASS – Old school meets new school
Peter Maternus (screen name: PAW) was involved with the design and set-up of this beauty. The Badass is a clear freestyler, which manages old tricks as well as the new trick repertoire.
A slow and easy kite to fly, very responsive on the lines, very good precision and a perfect floater for peaceful flying.
2. The MAXXX
Level One aka Jens Frank developed the MAXXX in collaboration with Grischa Koenig, who came 2nd with the MAXXX in the International Sportkite Freestyle Challenge in Bintulu, Malaysia, 25-30. Sept. 2018.
Both new Level One kites will only be available from Level One directly.
But if you need assistance ordering, just ask us and we will be glad to help.
The new Revolution EXP kite with Reflex sports an 11 panel design, reminiscent of the former 1.5 models.
The new design of the Revolution EXP kite with Reflex replaces the long-standing, almost traditional, colour scheme of the 7 panel EXP design.
The new EXP Reflex RTF package comes with 65ft / 90 lb Laser Pro Gold lines instead of the 80ft lines from previous models.

If you are searching for a stunt kite for a beginner, you will find as much information as different kites. – So we’d like to mention a couple of useful pointers from our long time experience to consider:
- Most beginners don’t like to spend a lot money on their first kite, even if it would be sensible to do so, because quality has its price.
- Size matters, but bigger is not necessarily better.
- Beginners like to fly kites in high winds. When tree branches are swaying or the waves are high, is considered “great kite weather”. For that reason a beginners kite has to be robust.
- Starters will push kites to their limits. Best to chose strong materials, like ripstop nylon for the sail and a solid carbon frame.
- Stunt Kites for beginners have to be easy to fly, be capable of all basic moves and they shouldn’t be too sensitive to control and steer either.
- A beginner kite should fly consistently in all areas of the wind’s power zone.
- Most beginners are far away from tricks and freestyle flying, for that reason a pure freestyle stunt kite is not recommended as a very first kite.
- Always have a look at the whole package and its contents. It is important that stunt kites for beginners come with a good set of braided flying lines, two hand straps (not reels) and a decent kite bag to store your lines and kite.

Looking for a lifter kite suitable for KAP (Kite Aerial Photography)?
The Box Delta is a combination of a Delta and a classic box kite.
The Box Delta combines the advantages of both kites: a large sail area and several surfaces for stabilisation. This kite is suitable for KAP because of its stable flying properties. It will lift small cameras, smart phones, GoPro cameras or line laundry.
The Box Delta is stabilised by the large sail areas and the box element. The special construction offers a very good lift and a wide wind range. The kite withstands even bumpy coastal winds.
Tails are removable. – More info …
