Sky Shark Tubes

Sky Shark P Series Tubes are lightweight wrapped carbon tubes with a brushed, matte finish. Sky Shark P Series Tubes are non-tapered and can be cut anywhere along the straight carbon tube and ferruled. P-Series wrapped carbon tubes are designed to be joined with PT Series tapered tubes using an internal carbon ferrule. Sky Shark P Series Tubes are commonly used as framing for high-end sport kites.

Sky Shark PT Series Tubes are tapered wrapped carbon tubes –one end of the tube is larger in diameter than the other. Designed to be ferruled with other Sky Shark Tubes, the PT Series wrapped carbon tubes all have an inner diameter of .244 inches at the large end. These tapered carbon tubes are primarily used for sport kites, RC gliders, and helicopters.

Sky Shark P-Series Tubes (with the exception of the 2P and the P90) are designed to use a solid .240 carbon rod ferrule. The 2P uses a .196 carbon rod or tube ferrule and the P90 does best with a .240 carbon tube ferrule.

All of the Sky Shark PT Series tubes are made on the same mandrels, so they all have an inner diameter of .244 inches (except the tapered end). This means that they can be cut and ferruled at any point along the length of the tube.

What is the difference between P Series tubes and PT Series tubes? Weight verses stiffness. For example, the 3PT, at 12.5 grams, has the stiffness of the P200 at 14.5 grams. The P200 is more durable and rated for winds up to 20 MPH in kites. The 3PT is an ultra light performance tube designed for kites in winds from 2 MPH to 12 MPH.  However, the P200 would lack the performance of a stiffer tube.
