Re: The Center Line Swivel; Got one? Love it or Hate it?

I fly Airush and have tendency to loop my kite way more in one direction than another. Airush uses very simple below the bar Manual swivel that you simply untwist with your fingers. I believe North uses something very simillar and few other brands. From my simple observation and the pics of the abov...

Re: Any more thoughts on the North Juice?

Rode the 15m Juice yesterday 8-15knts wind, did not really like it, I rode it back to back with my 12 varialx and by far preffered my old kite. Juice had higher bar pressure, less upwind drive, and much less smooth in gusts and we have very gusty winds, it also felt like it had same power as my 12. ...

Re: Airush vantage 17m review

Defnietly take a look at the 18, seems like a much more general purpose LW kite . I tried the 17 once, but could not get going on it, it was really light, though it did not fall out of the sky. I suspect that 17m Edge would do a little better, but only speculating. The 17 vantage, felt torquless , b...

Re: 2014 Airush Sector V5 vs 2014 Cabrinha

Shawn, thanks for updating! Did you have a chance to try V2 60? If yes, how it would compare to the V5 60 ? I've been riding 52v2 for few years and rode v2 60 for one season and did not really like it, could not carve and jybe it like I would the 52 anytime, so was wandering if the big v5 is more pl...

Re: Can't get upwind on an...Ozone Edge!

Thanks everyone who replied, lot's of helpfull adive there, I appreciate. Funny thing is, the technique of "siting in a chair" explained by Okinawa Kiter is something I practice riding my small Sector with the 17 when it's light, and it definetly helps, but I never thought of trying the same thing w...

Can't get upwind on an...Ozone Edge!

Ok guys, I really need help on this one. Some background on me, 175lb, intermediate, rode mostly directional in light stuff but love to go out on a TT when conditions are right. Got myself a 17M Edge 2013 after demoing it for few times, chose between Turbine, Flight and Zephyr, had in mind to ride i...

Re: 2014 Zephyr vs Flite?

I dont know about the Flite but I had the Zephir and sold it 3 months later as it was pulling less than my old 16m C kite I use as low wind kite. For me it failed its purpose Lthough it had more area than my old kite. I am still searching. G From what I've gathered, Zephyr 17m equals to 15m Edge (w...

Re: 2014 Zephyr vs Flite?

I had a chance to try almost back to back the Flite, Zephyr, Edge and Turbine, all from 2014, the one I liked the most was the Flite, it felt light and willing to stay up there in almost no wind . It seemed like one of the most relaunchable from those four. I do like fancy bars, but the OR bar seeme...

Re: I like my kite to be hard, when it will explode?

I often pump my VarialX to 11psi. It's a higher aspect ratio kite that needs a lot of pressure to keep it from deforming when it get's to the limit of it's range.

Just get a Gauge!
