Great Wilson - that explains, and people (we) can forget about the idea of "an okay gap you got now" - as you need a kite in between, definitely :thumb:

Got too little experience with the foils - compared to other kitesurfers, so sorry, can not comment.

Have flown a lot with the Psycho4 in 12m2 years ago, and a few times with a 10m2, and then the 19m2 Silverarrow - but thats it...

Understand fully now, that you want a kite in between - as you dont use these in the same "lightish" wind like lighter riders, so a 14-15m2 will be the awesome "go to kite" that works for you a lot of the time, and dont feel big and slow at all 8)

:D Peter

Time to ask more questions:

Did anyone tried to fly a Core Riot XR2LW15M with the north bar?


I did not try that combo....and here's why...

Our 2 LW kites 19 & 17 are complete with Core Sensor bars

Our 5 other kites (Rebels) also are complete w/North loaded 5 line bars

To try to adapt that North bar with the high position "Y" on a Core Riot XR2LW 15 will surely fail

The bar (mini 5th safety) that comes with the Core kites we use has a low position "Y"

Position for split (Y) on Core is about 4 meters from the bar (we use 24+3=27m lines)

Position for split (Y) on North is about triple that at about 12 meters from bar ( for 25m line set)

There's someone selling a new 2012 15m dyno on our local forum:
