I have a 10m 2012 Rally that needs a new leading edge bladder as all the valves are coming off.

Anyone know where I can buy one please ?

Just strip them off and remove the double sided tape and get storm sure glue and glue them. All the struts will do the same. 1 $17 tube will do 1 kite completely.. Or just send it to be done.. $30 each valve most charge I think!

Just a basic guide for valve gluing. You'll see in the 3rd picture the double sided tape being removed. If you don't remove this and clean with acetone your repair will FAIL! Soak in a bucket of hot water then remove valve then return to hot water for a minute then remove tape! Easy peasy...
