15m High Boosting Hangtime Kite

Postby fernmanus » Sun Jun 10, 2012 5:03 am

I am in the market for a high aspect kite with good boosting and Hangtime characteristics. I already own a 9 & 11m Edge. These kites are ideal - low-bar pressure, great jumps. So, I am considering another Edge. However, I am wondering if there are other kites that I should consider, perhaps the Dyno. I don't need the kite for lightwind riding as I have a Speed 3 21m already. Your thoughts, advice would be appreciated.

Try the Core 15m XR2 LW...I'm loving this kite. Really nice lift and glide, fast turning, very good top end. Inflate system works a treat too.

I've got kites in MI if you want to demo.

try to test as many as you can !!!

If you have time, travel to Germany to the worldcup in June...there will be like 15 companies demoing their gear...you can test all, and then you will know which is the best for you.

But there should be also more demo events around the globe during summer if you live further away.

15m speed?!

I had the 15m speed 3 and 13m edge and used to have a couple of 11m edges.


I find i can go higher on the edge but if i want insane glide i reach fo me 15m speed...

15m Best TS - hi AR - and lots of hangtime, glide and lift. A flying machine! But also a great lightwind kite.

14m Epic Screamer 3G. made for big air hangtime. And its a beast has a power that rivals and beats many of those 15ms.

But why not an Edge ?

A fellow from Moncton New Brunswick, Paul MacFayden passed thru here on his way home from two weeks in HAT in May. If I remember correctly, he is a former Speed flyer.

He was raving about his new, 15M WindWing BAT .. including the best jump of his life, and its wide range.
