Re: North Rhino 8 - more pics ...

So, so so so many problems with instability on the North 5th system can be related to a very very simple issue; the length of the 5th line. The other line stretch during high loads whilst the 5th don´t. Ride the setup for 50 times and you can have a serious 10-15 cm difference in line lengths... ha...

Mig, the Vegas get´s in return no problems with the T-pieces. People buy kites due to certain properties and performance, I don´t think the one, two or three pump system has any meaning whatsoever on this one. As the Vegas is designed for all that slam-donking in freestyle practice a...

No, the production 2008 Rebels and Vegases are absolutely not going to have the two-pump system. They made a pre-production series of Vegases with it, but the production series is not going to have the two pump, only the Rhino stays with it. We have sets of both Vegas-08 and Rebel-08 kites, really n...

....old story. They just made the first series ( 1/6 ) with wrong material in the T-connectors. This should have been communicated to all having problems with them. Quite simply, the plastics company about everyone is subcontracting to make plastic parts for their gear just used a wrong material for...

Ah, sorry... yes yes, you´re abs. right. Over here we don´t have afford with extra steps in the chain and so the importers/distributors sell solely to the end users. Customers of brands with dealers etc guys in between are just plain and simply paying too much for their stuff. Anyway...

In low winds, I think the Rebel 12m2 needs to ridden with a reeeeaallly gentle hand in order to work. There is not much pull, the 12m2 low end is like a 13 m2 Rhino6 and the bar is not giving at low end feedback of what the trim is. The Rhino6 feels to pull more and you get faster a solid feedback o...

The have been aiming for certain properties for tail flex vs. center stiffness... and the resulting board was really good. Doing this, they created a hard-to-soft transformation area which unfortunately is too short with the originally selected set of materials in the laminate. Too much movement in ...

Bullshit. Come on over guys, I´ll measure you 6 kts over here and you go and give it a try. We have measured 0 kts on the surface in conditions where a 20m2 is getting big... proving that the R2 20 can go in 0 kts upwind!!!

Nice hyping anyway, will impress the stupid end of the population.

60 kts = 31 m/s.
Get real.
6m2 is a really tough play for a 80 kg guy at an honest 40 kts.

Spot on dazza! And getting that symptom on your morning session, try going out in the afternoon.... no way. Your eyes may feel all normal on land, maybe a little "salted", but the first splash of water on the 2nd session of the day will just make you close your eyes and that´s it, nothing to do, ...
