The Ronstan Orbit Block kite pulley is perfect for anyone tired of going through pulleys or the danger of failing pulleys. Though very similar in size to standard pulleys, substantially stronger with a 550 lb maximum working load and a 12l0 lb breaking load rating, and fully ball bearing which will keep it freely spinning much longer than a standard plastic wheel and axle pulleys that jam up easily, causing wear on your bridle lines. These pulleys come standard with our custom-stitched line going through the pulley. The loop is dual purpose providing a connection to a kite line and if there is a failure you can still maintain control of the kite and there will be no wear on your bridle!
The Ronstan Orbit Block kite pulley is a big improvement over the standard Ronstan or many of the other pulleys that come stock with kites. Fully ball bearing so they are way more durable. These pulleys are just about the same size and weight as the standard Ronstan so they will work perfectly with any kite. Several customers who have had repeated pulley failures replaced their pulleys with the Orbit Block and we have not had one fail yet. This is a worthwhile upgrade for anyone who has had problems with pulleys or just to prevent a future problem.
*Pro Tip - Always check pulleys for wear and tear and replace when needed. A broken or jammed pulley can ruin a kite bridle.
