Hi All,

My main valve failed on my Nitro 3 where the plastic is bonded to the underlying patch. Can anyone who has replaced the new style valve on a switch kite before give me some tips. It doesn't look like I can un-glue the valve easily from the bladder as it seems to be bonded from both sides? It seems a shame to trash the entire bladder and get a new one simply to replace a valve.

Can submit some pics if you need more detail on where the failure happened.

Cheers,

Danny
