Wait What... are you the man behind the Notorious XX Mash Up? If so - huge props to you my man. Great album.WaitWhat wrote:7m to 10m should be fine if the 10 is fast enough. question though; if the venturi and the "steering bumps" on the leading edge are so great why does the "best" kite they make not have them?
Thanks for the review, EAG. Could you (and Evan and JZ?) comment a little more about the depower? The smoothness and power through turns sound perfect for me, (after riding rises since 2008, I feel like I have to have something that has a more positive feel through turns, but my one test on a razor found it a little to spiky and explosive for a geezer like me), but for our wave conditions having enough depower on the bar to allow the kite to stop pulling on the wave would be nice -- and I am in my first dozen sessions or so of riding strapless, so depower is good there too. Were you using an OR long-throw bar and were still not able to depower in the gusts?eag wrote:2012 Cypher 9m review.
It handled being overpowered like the Razor. I had to drive hard against the kite and couldn't just sheet out to let off power. Beginners and those in super gusty spots will still want the Rise. I crashed it and relaunch is super easy and automatically goes to the edge of the window.
I like to ride waves, I like to do old school tricks and kiteloop tricks and I like to play on my strapless board. For me this is the best kite in their lineup. Smooth and predictable while still being fast and powerful.
