Re: Pulsion 18m

I can't sleep because I maybe have identified a way to better optimize the 18m in marginal wind :jump: : extending further my already long lines :roll: . Indeed I was probably disturbed because it worked well in same conditions with the same bar and lines on the 15m, and 30m is already SO long :!: ....

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Which kite you compare the soul weight to ? Seems to flight well but not so light . Peter, To fit your initial question, maybe we could try to start from your list and testers could put a kind of order/rating to their minimum wind ability (Without mentiong wind values , I agree, it is non sense at t...

Re: Foil Kite advice Chrono,Hyperlink, Soul

To me it depends on wind speed. Because below 8 knots LEI are a pain. Ok foilkite are much articulated at first sight but the reward is on water vs LEI which are not relaunchable under 11, not compfortable under 9 and not feasible under 8 (Or barely). Foilkite can be a bit trickier vs LEI in 8-10 kn...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

During the lowest ride I did with my former Pulsion15m, I was limit at the waterstart AND at planning at 90 degree of the wind,: - I needed a 15m2 to slowly get me out of the water, using the powerfull loop of moderate aspect ratio - I had to work the kite a minimum (but gently to keep a good flight...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Yes Concept'air can send them to Europe with some shipment and tax fee, say 200 Euro overall (I am in France). Wind range is "as usual" to me for most kites (i.e. about a factor 2 between low end and high end) ; High end is lower than a race kite of same size, but Aspect ratio increases with size (e...

Re: Marginal wind kites ?

Peter I cannot refrain to participate ! :D If the (Interesting) topic is on the ultimate marginal lower end ability, i.e. being able to launch , go out of coast in the water, waterstart and stay upwind. Then to me the Conceptair Pulsion is the winner and i think that most testers will confirm. In 15...

Re: concept air pulsion

A new opus from the Pulsion is coming in addition to the current one ! The designer of the Pulsion Benoit Tremblay made a trip in France last week, so Steph (from Lesfoilz french forum) proposed a meeting/ kite session with him last week-end; very nice day, first time we met him face-to-face, he's s...

Re: Short lines on big kites

I would add just one point : shorter line is more comfortable in gusty winds specially with orientation changes. Indeed the kite needs shorter time to get at its new position in the window. This is secially noticable on a foilkite which has less instant depower until the kite reaches the end of wind...

Re: Pulsion 18m

4 wholes between the cells for air circulation at the trailingedge. Ok I see. My 12m and 15m have none : I have a grid mesh instead. Maybe an evolution like the 2x double velcro purge at the TE. Maybe a 18m specificity I do not know. Anyway this remains a stressless zone compared to vents in the mi...
