U-Turn Butane
 
The Butane paraglider from U-Turns sits in between the Nitro all out race kite and the Oxigen intermediate. Many people will remember that U-Turn’s head designer, Ernst Stroble, was responsible for the much-loved Airea Raptor (I & II) well, the Butane is the Raptor III by any other name.
 
The kite is supplied in a simple stuff sack as per U-Turn’s other kites but it’s a posher one with a mesh insert to let the sand out and promote drying.
 
The U-Turn Claw design is on both sides of the kite.
 
Construction is up to the usual standard, with multiple internal bracing on its 28 cells. The leading edge vents are reinforced with mylar and extend to the majority of the cells.
 
It doesn’t have power rings or turn-assist brake eyelets like the Oxigen but this doesn’t make any difference to the Butane. This kite turns fast.
 
Upwind performance is usually one of the key performance criteria in a race kite and the Butane doesn’t disappoint.
