Hey,

Anybody know if the 2012 universal control system will have some form of "safe suicide" connection. Connecting leash to chicken loop and 5th line? (similar to north's setup).

It does have the ability to hook to the chicken loop and the safety release. Just hook into the yellow depower leash first then hook into the chicken loop. The hooks are bigger allowing you to hook to both. This allows you to hit the release when in suicide and it will flag the kite out.

Hey Nick,

Must have a look at the 2012 bar, the 2011 leash clip looks quite narrow and could catch on the chicken loop when released (perhaps this is why Naish did not advertise this as a connection option for 2011.)

Have you tried this approach yourself?

The one I used did not. However the easy fix is to just get a metal ring on the CL... A buddy of mine use that, and it works great. I'll ask him what diameter it is




Anybody else done this?


I've fitted s North suicide ring to my 2010 bar, haven't used it in anger yet but looks like it should work. I used to clip my leash to CL and 5th line but Naish leashes are crap so I use a North one now which won't fit over both.

about 1 meter ;-)


..but seriously this is the information I got about that..the 9 was modeled after the 8 profile, and obviously edited.

It definitely has more pull. I've ridden the 8 quite a lot, and a 9 a few times. There is definitely significantly more pull in the 9. Still turns fast :-)

Did you put the yellow depower around the "big ring" and attach the leash to the smaller ring?

Cheers

I moved the red ball up, untied the knot. I got rid of the plastic sheath. I tied the North ring straight onto the end of the yellow line - I tied it onto the bigger part of the ring. I then pushed the red ball back down over the knot. I attach my leash to teh smaller part of teh suicide ring, the CL goes through the larger part.

Only thing I worry about is the metal buckel on the end of the CL getting caught in the ring if it was to pull through in some weird angle - but to be honest I only use suicide it when it's unhooking weather and my Torches have loads of depower, it it's blowing hard I use it normally.

Yes I have. The 2012 leash is new and will allow you to hook to both.

I had a look at the 14 Torch at the beach here...unfortunately no test for me..on the Torch yet. Can you include a little note about how it differs from last years? If you got to ride the 11..I'd be interested in hearing how it was :-)

I see there is a plastic coating on the depower line.
How does this affect steering (Friction)?
Is it the standart 5mm dynema that is used for the depower rope?
Great that we are back to above the bar trim, but why not use a cleat system for trim, straps are crap in my opinion......?
Is the issue with fatige on the LE fixed (between the 1st and 2nd strutt)
Is it possible to get the kite as multi pump?
