The MEGA valve option actually refers to the PATCH SIZE as being Mega. It’s a 4” diameter as opposed to the standard valve which has a 3” diameter. This extra inch means 77% more adhesive base surface area than the standard valve, though, being a circle, so it’s a big difference. The Main purpose for a MEGA-patch valve is for when the valve must but cut from the bladder leaving a larger hole than if the old valve just peeled off. It’s also useful if there are tears or warping in the bladder material next to the hole where the valve should be placed.
The 9mm Self-Stick-Valve is the industry standard for all inflation valves and will work on 99.9% of all kites in production. This can be used to repair or replace an inflation valve or strut valves on a multi-pump system. One way valve lets air enter while pumping but stops air from coming out. Simply squeeze valve to let air out. 1-way flap can be cut out to create a 2-way valve.
