Extending the front lines

forum for kitesurfers

Hi all,
Recently I start to use the chicken loop on a Naish ARX 11.5 and I realize that I have less power due to that. My question is if it will be a good idea to extend the middle line that connects to the front lines. If the answer is yes, how much should I extend it and how.

I have run into the same situation with my Fuel 120. If I ride in the static line, i have enough power, but if I hook into the chicken loop, I have less. I think the answer is that we are using the kite in at the bottom of its wind range. I think if the wind is a bit higher, then the amount of power while in the chicken loop will be adequate.

you can also shorten your outside leaderlines. It think you should change your leaders lines and not your steering(dynema) lines. Thats a lot easier...

I think you always has a little bit less power because if you get power you automaticly let go of the bar a little bit and you loose some power. If you're good powerd up this is not a problem but at the bottom wind range it can be a problem.
