Re: Moses 2018

This is the official stance from the IKA on freezing the current (2017) Equipment list: The plan is unchanged to freeze equipment for 3 years in the Formula Class (next new equipment eligibility for after the Olympics 2020). A lot of riders are sick of buying new stuff every year, and waiting half ...

Re: Moses 2018

Have not reached 25 knots (46km/HR) yet. I'm usually up to 38 km hr, cruising at 30-35km/HR. What a difference between racers and freeriders! We do 20-23kn upwind with spikes up to 27kn (50km/h). But instead of more top-speed you can also look at a race finish from another perspective: less drag = ...

Re: According to Google Trends, kiteboarding is declining in popularity

Re: Moses 2018

Well, making your foil noise-free with a clean surface so you won't ventilate at higher speeds makes your foil-exprerience a lot more enjoyable. Even when you are not racing. But if you never exceed speeds over 25kn you are not going to notice these imperfections that much, if at all. Unless your fo...

Re: DIY bar strength?

Like many things in kiting, lighter weight gear is usually better, but is this really true with the control bar? Anyone have experience comparing heavy vs light bars and have an opinion? Now that I think about it, I do really like the feel of my tiny ultra light no frills Flysurfer Peak 1 bar for l...

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

Total line length incl Bar/trim/leaders or only the lines themself? I am now on 14m total length on the 17-20m and 11m on the smaller sizes. Even 18m lines feels really slow and draggy now :) Total line length. I use 1.2m leaders, so lines are actually 10.8m and 8.8m. -- Gunnar Ah, I should try eve...

Re: Moses 2018

The problem is, that it looks likle Moses will not be allowed to register it for Formula Kite events. -- Gunnar If possible, could you please elaborate on this if you know more?

Re: Anyone know any details on the new upcoming foil from Flysurfer?

That see-through effect has nothing to do with the cloth types but everything with the lighting and used colours (white inside, colour outside). If they used black on the outside like the standard Sonic2 you wouldn't had this effect. AR and cell-count seems in the Chrono2/Speed5 range instead of the...

Re: Moses 2018

Curious to hear your opinion on the 2018 Comet (ML inspired?) foil Gunnar, compared to the 2017 levitaz Bionic. Also have a Comet incoming soon to see wich is faster, if only we could get some hints of spring....
