Hi, about bar sys,

I'm riding basically the same design for quite a long time and I must say that it works best for me with SLE kites!


It can be built quite easy, if you got the right skills...

I just tried the new furia in 13m². I had e-Nova 12 and 7. The kite is plenty of power, turn super fast for such a size (faster than Nova 2 12 which is good for turning). The kite is really dedicated for unhooked in 15knots (wind I tried) when the back bridle is located at the "trickest" attachment (this is a tuning on the kite, which is really easy to change). The quality is better than Nova 2 with new bumpers, thin struts, good reinforcement on the elbow.
What change a lot is the kite is really grunty, the kite is really more agressive and rigid in the air and is perfect for tricks, due to turning speed and reactivity.
One good thing is the reactivity, the kite reacts immediately without any delay. My friend riding usually a vegas was impressed about this feature for a flat kite.

Concerning the bar, the system change a lot:
- new clam cleat, smaller one, which is really easy to use (easier than Nova 2 bar).
- the safety system is totally different because now you can connect the safety leash close to the chicken loop with the safety line connected to only one front flying line. A swivel is on the chicken loop like that you can rotate for the eternity:
- The bar is a total new system for a 4 lines kite because you have only one line for many meters instead of 3 front lines,after this line is divided per 2 to have the 2 front lines, this is difficult to explain but the bar is far away the best of the market concerning technology (integrated leash, one line) and the finish with a new grip, winders which with you can tune the bar size: 55cm and 47cm.
A lot of trimming is available on the kite for tricks or waves?

What is the gain compare to other kites:
-depower same as takoon reference
- turning ability: more than a vegas
- grunty kite: perfect for good jumps
- reactivity: no delay on bar movement

The only thing I would like to change is the NTS box which is a little big, but during riding I don't care, only for the looking.
This kite is from my test the first 08 kite, and it is absolutely perfect. A huge step for performance :thumb:
I just received the 11 and I'll let you know first comments on this size.
