CORE Speed Valve 2 Replacement

IMPORTANT


Work only on clean and dry area. If you can't cut out the old valve near the weld, then make sure that you cover the exposed bladder area so that the valve won't stick to the other side of the bladder. Lay bladder flat, but do not tension the it upon new valve installation. Be careful on the new valve orientation. Use glue only if you can't remove air bubbles or you have wrinkles under the adhesive valve base. Optionally you can heat the repair with hair dryer. Using hair drier on too big temperature, too close or too long may damage your kite's bladder!

Get help when changing inflatable bladders. Check the bladder orientation prior usage. Twisted or improperly inserted bladder can cause decreased performance or damage to the kite!
