Alexander Pearson, known as Alick, developed this kite in the early '70s as a simplified version of the ROLOPLAN. In the original version, this kite had square proportions and no nose keel, and a simplified two-legged bridle. The Pearson Roller in its original form is likewise a relatively small kite and because of this it must be constructed with due precision. Naturally, it can be scaled up.


ORIGINAL PEARSON ROLLER Measurements (in cm)

Seen from the nose, the bridle points of the kite are on the upper cross-spar (w1), and on the forward edge of the keel fin (w2).
