What exactly are these types of kites, and how do they differ fromeach other? Without further ado, lets clarify this issue.A traction kite is any kite that provides a lot of pull for the user, regardless of size. A small kiteused in high winds can be a traction kite, provided that it fulfills the former requirement; a large kitein low winds is also a traction kite, because it certainly generates a lot of pulling force. A kite canvary anywhere between 2 m2 and 100 m2 and be considered a traction kite as long as it providesenough pulling force - its size does not matter.A trainer kite is a small kite that varies between 1 m2 and 3.6 m2, and is used to teach kitehandling basics. A key requirement with this type of kite is to not be so powerful that it overwhelmsthe user - it needs to be small enough to be safe for an inexperienced flyer. Any kite that is toopowerful, usually anything larger than 3.6 m2, is not considered a trainer kite.So, what is a traction-trainer? A traction-trainer is any kite that is small enough to be a trainer kite,yet is large enough to generate large amounts of pulling force; trainer kites that range between 1m2 and 2 m2 are too small to do this in most conditions. However, trainer kites between 2 m2 and3.6 m2 can easily produce massive amounts of power and can be classified as traction-trainerkites - kites in this size range are commonly used to pull snowboards, skis, rollerblades, andlandboards.It is easy to see how traction kites, trainer kites, and traction-trainer kites can be confusing. Eachterm describes a kite that fulfills different requirements, and these requirements only overlap in avery narrow range - the size range between 2 m2 and 3.6 m2 that defines traction-trainer kites.Outside of these sizes, traction kites and trainer kites are very different things. With that, weunderstand the difference between these types of kites!A comprehensive guide trainer kites including information, exercises, and reviews can be found athttp://www.kiteboardingevolution.com/trainer-kites.htmlMy name is Robert Murray, and I am the founder of http://www.kiteboardingevolution.com, awebsite designed to answer the many questions that people new to kiteboarding have.
