I need your help. I am going to replace my 2007 North Vegas... i loved this kite but i just destroyed it.
I am a 67 KG advanced Kitesurfer.
I am looking for a kite with the following specification:
Great jumping performance
Light in the bar
Very large wind range (i prefer to have only one kite in my quiver)
Would you advice me a such a kite, from North / Naish or any other brand.
I had a look at the Naish Cult / North Evo, but not sure it's gonna make it as i never tried them...
I would appreciate your feedback !
Thanks for your answer.
You've gotta give people some parameters otherwise you'll get advice about as many kites as there are kites..
so more info about what you like...how you ride..
Unless you go for another vegas...
If you like jumping and since you are used to using your board try the helix...it has a gut wrenching vertical pull...good low end. The kite will have a super good range, but not as good range as the cult. Cult is more stable in extreme wind conditions...but I don't really know how the wind is where you are...both the cult and helix can be very light on the bar, but that is adjustable. Helix jumps a little better than the cult...IMO.
In regards to Delta kites: some people like them, but I would definitely recommend you try them first.
Most of the Delta shapes seems to be coming back to what the SLE are already doing...a little less on the low end but more range...
