Question for anyone? Does anyone actually use the XTEND capability on the bar? I fly the small sizes all the way to the Infinity on the stock setting?


I change the width of my bar to narrow from 9m and down and to wide from 10m and up

SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves.
Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

Came across this on the Kiteboarder Magazine. Might have been shared before, but, it's the same view that I've experienced with riding this kite.

The XTEND BAR from EPIC kites comes only in one size but you can transform it from 55cm to 45cm in few seconds.
Some kiters like to use the XTEND BAR on the 55cm set up for the INFINITY, SCREAMER 14, RENEGADE 13, SCREAMER 12, RENEGADE 11, SCREAMER 10. And then switch to the 45cm set up for the SCREAMER 9, RENEGADE 9, SCREAMER 7, RENEGADE 7, RENEGADE 6.5, JUDGE 8, JUDGE 6.

Other kiters like myself like to use the XTEND BAR on 55cm for all the sizes out there.

But again few other kiters like to use the XTEND BAR on the 45cm set up for all the kite sizes because they want a slower kite so they can perform their wake style moves. And don't want the kite to respond fast.

So in few words it all depends what you are comfortable with. For the average kiters I would recommend to use the 55cm from the INFINITY kite to a 9 meter kite and then use the 45cm set up from an 8 meter all the way down to the JUNIOR PRO 4 meter.

I use the 55cm setting for all my Epic kites (8m Judge right up to the Infinity). I haven't noticed any issues and actually prefer the larger bar setting to the smaller setting. It is nice to have the option to be able to change the bar lengths and not own multiple bars.

These are the prototype RENEGADE & SCREAMER kites made in Greece for the Greeks.
I am so proud to be Greek.

Getting ready for a GREEK epic demo in the island of Paros "Greece" as we speak. And that includes the JUDGE 9 "V3" prototype.

I would just like to give a quick thank you to Dimitri for the after sales care that he has been providing and his customer service is top notch! I couldn't ask for any more and they have went above and beyond to make sure I was well cared for. I absolutely believe that they represent the best of what kiting is about as a company :thumb:

James

Love the kites!

No wind, No problem. This is the reason why we created the INFINITY V3 kite.
But again you need to know what you are doing, because kiting in this type of conditions is not for every body.
