It is assumed that the Japanese kitemaker Takeshi Nishibayashi  is the designer of this particular type Sled kite.  He made numerous visits to England, bringing with him many new and simple ideas for kites.  This Tube Sled is very similar to the original early development of Ed Grauel's Bullet (Sled).   Takeshi  made the main sail shape like the Hornbeam with a large round vent then attached a single canopy to the rear to form a air channel.
