Re: Best Kite for Downwinders- Recomendations.

I do 200 km downwinders in my summers each time i go . I use freestyle kites (trigger) that they fly fast to the wind window (zenith) and i would like them to sit more back, because that i prefer to be well powered for downwinders. I should have a better feeling with a pure wave kite ? is that corre...

Re: RRD obsession 2015 compatible with global V7 bar?

Don't know about the lines, but it will be just fine with that bar. The religions don't stall easily, but like their freedom, so make sure your setup is four lines at the same length, when bar is at full power. The religion has the option to adjust the back lines at the kite. Might come in handy, w...

Re: RRD obsession 2015 compatible with global V7 bar?

their latest bar have a low V design, and the previous ones had a higher split point (around 4-5m), which makes the whole kite feel a bit more direct (low V) and a bit more slack on the back lines (better for freestyle) but you might want to shorten the front pigtails (or put an extra few cm on the...

Just loop a small stainless steel ring onto the non flag line and run the flag line through the ring.
This one sounds good and simple :thumb:

Re: RRD bar with Airush kite

I have an RRD 4 line bar from, I think 2012 or 2013. I'm thinking of buying an Airush Ultra, and would like to know if i will be able to use it, instead of buying a new bar. I just bought RRD religion and want to try it with airush bar or blade uni bar! (opposite of you). The thing is that the RRD ...

Re: How to make a high Y bar ?

Check the video of the new F-One bar, they have a removable "Y" configuration - you could probably do the same. Split one of the front lines right where you want your Y to be, add a ring the the connection and pass the other front line through it. That being said - why bother at all? Kites designed...

Re: How to make a high Y bar ?

https://www.glassandstainlessuk.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/MODEL-6020-EYE-BOLT-image-450x338.jpg It shouldn't hurt the line's strength to put a bolt through the middle of the line. That will turn your V system into a Y while retaining single line flagging. as far as I know, nobody makes a par...

Re: Testing Hard shell harnesses. Any Questions?
