The ultimate kite solution!

Postby Pier » Fri Dec 23, 2011 4:37 pm

If you are wondering if an inflatable LE is better than a foil, if 3 struts are better than 5 and which is the best aspect ratio for your needs here you have the solution:

I couldn't keep this as a secret to you guys, I sold my kite quiver and switched right away.

Happy Holidays!

The best advantage is the low bar pressure, perfect for long downwinders...

not to mention that 100% instant depower can be invoked by simply releasing one of the control sticks, too bad it is on backorder!

Your joking right! In the video the kid is chasing the guy who stole his, what looks like a garbage bag with sticks

Jimbo, the "garbage bag" look is on purpose because you don't want to stick out too much with a new technology...especially when it's so revolutionary...

Very impressive. You know it's high tech when you can only get it on skymall. Not to mention how great he looks riding that beautifully crafted piece.

Minor issue though....no steering, oh well, makes it more fun especially when you can SEE what you might hit with the transparent layer
