Hi guys, Last night we had a bit of wind - rarity down here at this time of the year!

It was the first chance I had had to see a big x2 flown by a non sponsored rider. The rider is definatly competant though. The conditions were gusty but compared to the other kites in the air the X2 seamed to be all voer the place! Other kites up were, 17.5 arx, 19 RRD super type, 12.2 Lift, 16 Rhino, 12 Aero

Has anybody else sceen this? it seams very strange considering these kites are supposed to be so far advanced!

Hi,

Pump it up! The X2 looses performance as any other kite if not pumped real hard.

Also make sure the set-up is correct and that the rider is not flying the kite oversheeted in stall.

A proper set up 18 is solid as a rock in the sky. We have had no such problems here and we use them a lot.

Thanks,

Bengan

I am using the X2 18. No similar problem. It is rigid. Try to pump the LE more.

Regards,
Mo
