Liquid Force Spectrum 12m

I have had the pleasure of putting the 12m thru it's paces in the last few days. I liked it alot. It has a great range and great boost and hang in the right wind. I have come from riding Rhino 2's and a Rhino 4 for a brief stint. These spectrums have answered all my prayers for a grunty kite, awesom...

Took this demo kite out again today in 25-30kts and got some wicked airtime. So much so - I want one! The depower and gust control (as it was pretty gusty) was excellent IMO. I have finally found a kite to upgrade from my Rhino 2 as to date nothing has come close in power, boost and hangtime but wit...

Construction wise - I would have to say that the Liquid Force was better. Similar reinforcements but a bit of extra detail and panel layout. I noticed with the Best 14 that there was a bit of ripple in the canopy on launch and when luffing in the sky a bit in gusty winds. I noticed this yesterday on...

Liquid Force Spectrum 10m

Today we had a nice 17-20kt se breeze and I got to put the 10m spectrum to the test. Fast. This kite is super fast. I had my own bar on the demo kite which is 50cm and after a few hours on the kite would think you would want a 40-45cm bar. I was also hooked up on the inner pigtail points. The only o...

Liquid Force Spectrum 15m

I have spent a few good sessions on the Spectrum 15m and have found the following. I currently have Rhino 2's, ride 130x38 board and intermediate kiter and weigh in at 90kg. First and foremost - this kite is powerful. If you don't like a grunty kite you might find the 15m a bit of a weapon. Me - I l...

Yes, I did a review some time ago. Didn't get to check the top end of the best kite but it definately has more low down grunt and not such a quick fall after a nice big air. Looked similar in the air, turning and bar felt the same but I ride powered up at the stopper aswell.

On the North harness does the spreader bar ride high or low?

Thanks for the reply...

Low on both harnesses I mentioned - hardly any pressure on your back at all - more hips.

North performer and dakine storm are good for movement but poor on quality/lasting. I have gone thru one of each and got a new North performer now but had it reinforced by a repairer from new and is lasting well. low back cut on both for good movement.
