Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

And about Speed 3 and Speed 4 Lotus, well, Lotus cloth was a huge improvement in weight and relaunchability. A friend of mine has 2 SP3 21 m and 1 SP 3 19m, and now has one sp 4 Lotus 18 m that it was mine. Parking Zenit un 5 kn, tighter turns, more windrange. The first SP 4, previous to Lotus, was ...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Make yourself a favour, Grigorib.

First ride the Soul and then come back later. And then we will talk properly.

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Hahahahaha, you are comparing apples with bananas. I own a speed 4 Lotus and theres a huge improvement in Souls. Anyway, i was talking of first class inflatables kites, wich prices around 2000 dollars. Lets talk about it in 3-5 years. Time will tell the truth. It takes time square minded people beco...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Have you ever gone in 57.97 kn of speed on water with a kiteboard? in 30 kn? No, not anywhere near. Of course current record on the water is very respectable. AFAIK wind was then more like 50kn than 30kn. How much higher speeds on hard surfaces do you refer? Not much higher but much more accessible...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

... And i think the new Flysurfer Soul is a real game changer for freeriders :thumb: And that's perfectly fine, but it's not a game changer. Did you consider the price? All that features of a foil Kite and the handling and relaunchability of an inflatable at the price of an inflatable... For me, al...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Sorry if I messed windspeeds and places. Anyway, 50kn is not very high speed for kite traction, except on the water it is. Like I wrote much higher speeds have been reached on hard surfaces with low AR LEI's which are the most "inefficient" kites there is. I agree. In lower winds race foil kites ar...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

I'm not against foil kites but what the f*** does this mean? If you want to truly advocate foil kites don't write about them! You sound bat shit crazy. I am talking in general about characteristics of the kites and particularly criticising the intentional note written by Groesel. I guess he is not ...

Re: 24 hr epoxy cured in 1 hr

I agree with BWD. The heat can accelerate the cure exponentially. Large mass of epoxy generates heat. And this heat increases the chemical reaction, which generates more heat. It happened to me once. I always prepare 100 gr of epoxy, not much more than that every time. And if I need more (I always n...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Ralf Groesel WAS designer of Flysurfer more than 15 years ago. Those ram air can't be compared to actual foils. Beyond that, Groesel is the designer of North Duotone Vegas, one of the most selling kites worldwide for freestyle. The conclusion of Groesel is more marketing than scientific facts. I hav...
