Re: North Neo as freeride kite

Re: The Perfect Quiver

Hi I weigh 74 kg and cover from 9 knots all the way up to 50 knots with: 11m North Neo / 8m North Neo / 5.3, 4.7 and smaller windsurfing sails. In smaller sizes the steps between the windsurfing sails become smaller. I would be surprised if in kiting this is not the case, say 2m steps from 8 to 6 fo...

Re: Influence of line attachment points on kite characteristics

Thanks Matteo V and sflinux

Re: Influence of line attachment points on kite characteristics

Thanks for all of the answers!
I really like the accelerator analogy. I think is it right on.

Anyone who dares to comment on the front lines?

Re: Influence of line attachment points on kite characteristics

Thanks Dylan, I just would like to confirm my understanding on how the rear line settings work. Simplifying, I view the front line attachment as a hinge point. Consequently, the further backwards (further away from the front line attachment points) the rear line attachment points are placed the more...

Re: Settings North Neo 2017

Hi, is this a correct summary of what effect the different front line and rear line positioning have? Front Lines Forward Position: more depower, more range. Backward Position: less sensitive on bar, more power on harness, more hangtime. More Separation: arch turn, more grunt. Less Separation: pivot...
