|Freestyle:||The ratio of a kites width (span) to height (chord). Kites generally have a high aspect ratio or a low aspect ratio. Low aspect ratio kites usually fly slower, are easier to relaunch, and have a more grunty downwind pull. High AR kites travel faster and fly further to the front of the window. This gives you better upwind ability, higher jumps and bigger wind range.|
