They have said upper wind range does not exist for some odd reason. Apparently one of the pro's has been out on the 15.5 in 27 knots. Thats ust plain sick! I hate guys like that :grin:

My knowledge of german is about as valuable as a bowling ball in a life raft, However I used an interpretation program to get the following translation (thanks erik)...

main: http://babelfish.altavista.com/urltrurl?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.flysurfer.de%2Fpsycho.htm&lp=de_en&tt=url

tech: http://babelfish.altavista.com/urltrurl?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.flysurfer.de%2Fdaten.htm&lp=de_en&tt=url

or here is the translation...hope this helps...

PSYCHO (high performance kite):

The goal of the development of the PSYCHOS was it to build for the experienced Kiter an optimal Highperformance Kite. After some prototypes up to doubleskin the Tubekite (Tubekite with echtem profile.) became again clear us: If we want on the market products present toppen, then Kite with optimally projezierter surface anything does not pass one doubleskin.

With the conception of the PSYCHOS the development of a new Depowersystems, which takes the maximum out of a Kite, in the foreground stood. It became fast clear that we had to combine the simple angle-of-incidence change, which a 4-Leiner Tubekite uses with the Flapsystem., how airplanes in the approach flight and we use it by FlySurfer already longer. The combination of these Landeklappen. with the angle of incidence increase increases the maximum lift substantially!!

In addition it was to be arranged thereby possible the Depowereffekt as directly as with a 4-Leiner Tubekite, without having to accept however the disadvantages of the tube system. In the course of the development we could integrate still another purposeful Flex into the profile. Straight one in the jump achievement gets the PSYCHO a special Kick. with the Anpowern by the curvable high speed profile. With the Depowern against it the maximally entwoelbte profile can develop practically no more elevator.

The Depowersystem becomes thereby the slope time Regulator.. To the Fliegen. the Kite must be only steered into the zenith and angepowert there. Jumping is simplified thereby clearly and permits substantially more simply new cheats to learn.

That the PSYCHO is direct during the jump with enormous projezierter surface over the Kiter parkt. one of the reasons, why the PSYCHO makes so extreme slope time values possible, combined with soft landings.
Who observed the FlySurfer driver with the Contest in Fehmarn, the immense differences of the PSYCHO to conventional Foils to confirm will be able.

Also compared with current tube concepts the advantages of the PSYCHOS are particularly in the slope time and the soft landing obvious.

The new FlySurfer WAC Depowersystem (wind Attack control) has now like a 4-Leiner Tubekite course on that bar and made possible at any time a precise, intuitive Erfuehlen of the kit position.

Owing to the new Gust of absorber is the PSYCHO the first Kite on the market, which converts a driving in series " on " the stop knot with automatic gust absorption. Also the tax ways could be drastically reduced owing to the WAC system. Thus the momentarily largest PSYCHO gets along in the best way 15,5 with 65 cm bar.

The enormous wind area of application of the PSYCHO, (for the first time no upper end of wind rank is indicated!) and, FlySurfer with a thought out carries material-mixes, as well as special reinforcement calculation for the strong load exerted by it of the Kites.

Also the EasyRestartSafetysystem, which used FlySurfer already from the outset with their Kites, was revised. Beside various successful tests with simple emergency stop systems with a 4-Leine to the Auswehenlassen of the Kites could be improved finally the remainder course of the EasyRestartSafety in the same measure as the Depowereffekt won in addition.

FlySurfer introduces a further highlight with the PSYCHO into the Kiteszene:
the Rotor Leash. (RL) could be developed at the PSYCHO to production stage.
Turning the Safety off after rotation jumps happens even with normal trapezoids now from alone.

The PSYCHO is thereby the first Serienkite with a rotary Leash, which provides for maximum security with wildesten maneuvers.

All in all the PSYCHO added properly also over 1000 optimized individual parts opposite the Warrior. as well as aufwaendig profiles with diagonal ribs technology strengthened 42 cells, with ever up to 6 individually together-sewn upper and Untersegelteilen, and the patented AirInletValves provides for a perfect shape of the PSYCHO.

With the first standard, aluminum-free Full Carbonbar shows FlySurfer likewise that they want to build world-wide the best Kitesurfequipment.

And FlySurfer still stands at the point in things Safety. Like that are all connections to the Kite at any time surely and simple to separate: Quick release at Safety Leash, Trim loop. and so far singularly. at the Trapeztampen make the PSYCHO at the same time the power-fullest and safest Kite world-wide.

I heard, 4-1 depower, does that mean if the kite could be powered up in 10 knots it could still be fully depowered and underpowered in 30-40, same size kite?
Or you could use the same kite 15.5? in 30 knots on full depower then power up for a jump and WOW.......

Wind force doesn't rise propotionally, it raises exponentionally (??)..so 30 knots ias much more than 3 times the force of 10knots..

The example they used is if you are max depowered and the kite is pulling you up on tip-toes, and you suddenly max power it, it should pull you up in the air with 3G's of force...i don't know if I wanna try that experiment :razz:

I think this kite has the potential to have a significant impact on the market, much more than many market players are anticipating now.

There is a consensus that it is the kite of choice for low wind conditions. At first the (ex-)foil kiters will buy it, tubies (like me) could follow.

They will be impressed by the performance of the kite (lift, air time) and - they will notice that they can fly it into medium and high wind conditions... And then???
