Dan Leigh Delta Kites

Kites listed by wind range
Kites for strong breezes
kites for medium or fresh breezes
kites for light breezes

A good way to judge the wind range of a kite is to check its towing point position on the chart. Light wind towing points are over around 48%. Fresh wind towing points are significantly less than (about) 47%.

Strong Breeze Deltas

There is really only the one:

Medium-to-Fresh Breezes

Medium Breeze Deltas

Good for up to fresh breezes:

Light-to-Medium Wind Deltas

The smaller sizes of a given design have the widest wind range

Strictly Light Wind Deltas

Flying these in the wrong winds has been known to permanently damage them (if not by direct structural failure, then in a more subtle way by unevenly stretching the fabric, which may never recover. These kites are designed for maximum efficiency in light winds - not to withstand abuse.
