Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

I guess we see what we wanna see... Then I see what looks like a foilkite going to 5th line safety with instant powerloss. Ram airs are DANGEROUS!! Even if what we're seeing here is a deliberate flag-out on the 5th line (rather than a completely uncontrolled ram air collapse), it begs the question:...

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSmG9xK_8Vs Back in 2009 with Psycho4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSmG9xK_8Vs What a disastrous advertisement for ram airs!! Check out the ram air kite collapsing and deforming between 28s -> 34s. This could've easily ended in tears, injuring the rider and/or the...

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

What a nonsense all of the above, where did you get this bullshit from :lol: :lol: :lol: Foil kites are super efficient wings that are designed to fly. At the Dutch NK big air competion the guys that came on the first and second podium place had foil kites. The average level of the dutch big air ri...

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

Btw, where is PMU these days? Has anybody heard from "pump me up" on this one? I am starting to get worried Pumpy got hurt and/or is in a coma or something. Careful what you wish for. :wink: PMU is alive and well..... Ram airs are HOPELESS/inferior in BIG AIR events. Big air events, possibly moreso...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Phew. Think I just saved a lot of money by reading this thread. Enough to stop me in my tracks and make me question whether I need a foil kite. All that bridle fussing. I saw a video on adjusting the bridle to counter stretching, yuck. I don’t go enough and was just shopping as a proxy for kitesurf...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

the cost (of ram airs is) almost twice the price in many cases for same sized kite… Ram air kites promote elitism, classism, snobbery, the sports fragmentation/ dilution, unaffordability, reduced youth involvement,reduced number of under 40s, planned obsolescence ( bridle stretch / tuning), an unba...

Ram airs crash in 2018

Well, the end of 2018 is nigh. Time for a wrap-up and analysis of the failures of ram air kites this year. Despite a multitude of ridiculous over-the-top CLAIMS from ram lovers, ram airs cRaSHeD. On top of that, one of the world’s most respected kite designers and erstwhile designer for FLYSURFER ,...

Re: Switching from Flysurfer to Lei

This is what Ralf Groesel, a respected kite designer from Flysurfer, said about switching from Flysurfer (ram airs) to LEI. http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2400039. Note that he STRONGLY favours inflatables. Ignore the lies. Ignore the propaganda. Ram airs are aerodynamically inferior vs. i...
