The sled kite is the fourth most popular kite flown in the world. The shape of the sled kite is a vertical rectangle with two keels. One keel is on each side of the rectangular piece. A keel is the shape of a triangle. The wind pushes it into the center, and then pushes the rectangular piece up into the sky. You control the kite with your two side panels, and then the line or the bridle that it attaches to. Both of these triangular side panels are tied together. So, it is a single line kite.
