Hi Dimitry,
Thanks. Can you tell me if the aspect ratio is higher on the V3 over the V2 Infinity? Also it would be great to know the aspect ratios of all your kites, to have a figure to go on. I miss the days when everyone stated AR. Sure other design elements are important, but gives us an idea of where that kite fits.

The auto relaunch on the kite is ridiculously good. Just Wow! And the new bar seems spot on. I look forward to seeing you make better and better kites. I would give them a try again, but just have too many kites now. Will you take a trade in on a SB 14m and 10m? ;)

3 separate AR would be great to know when shopping for any kites

Flat AR kite on the ground...projected AR in flight fully powered .....projected AR fully depowered

Just my 3 cents :beer: :beer: :beer:

Maybe these are trade secrets, and they would have to shoot us if they told us? After all no one knows the real size of the Infinity. Hahaha Soon all kites won't have a number on them and they will be called "light wind", "medium wind", "high wind" kite better yet S,M,L XL. Just not to confuse us anymore with numbers. The Movie Idiocracy comes to mind. :thumb:

Talking about size...did you know that if a kite true measurement is 17.8m2 it can be sold as a 17

Gives the feeling of powerful for it's size :wink:

Hello Okinawa Kiter,
Yes the AR of the INFINITY V3 is a little higher then the INFINITY V2. But the AR of the RACER 17 is even higher then the INFINITY V3. The reason we don't talk about the Aspect Ratio on the kites is because most people don't know what to do with it and it's not really important in my opinion. You can see the difference by just looking at a kite.
From the pictures bellow you can see a big difference of the AR between the RACER and the INFINITY models.
