Hello,

I have a leaking valve on my 2009 Rise. I tried to fix it with a standard PU glue but it did not stick very well. Are the bladders and valves used on these kites different than what other companies use? I know that orange bladders are made from a different material… any suggestions on fixing the valve?

Thank you for your help!

fix my kite dot com sells stick on valves that are less expensive than the ones that Airtime sells. If the valve is still sealing and it just is leaking cause it’s delaminating from the bladder (extremely common) you can take it off and glue it back on with AquaSeal or 3M 5200 sealant.
