Hi,

due to my shoulder injury I am wondering if the XR3 has (in 12m2 and smaller sizes) lighter bar pressure and less force needed to steer the kite than my current Bandit 2014?

I can only consider XR3 due to strings attached deal, so please give only feedback on XR3.

Feedback highly appreciated!

Thank you!

No, the XR3 have more bar pressure then your Bandit. The GTS2 might be closer to your Bandit in term of bar pressure and how the kite feel. However at the lighter bar pressure it is not too high in the small sizes. I was riding last year the Bandit6 and now I ride the XR3. I also tried the B7 recently.

Bandit is one of the lightest bar pressure on ghe market and its much more fun than the xr3, bandit is super fast and works good for unhooking but its really powerfull, for kiteloops it also works ive try xr3 and is basically a bow the kites feels slow and i personnally didnt like it for unhooking

I set up my 12 year old sons XR3 9 on the lightest and fastest setting, and we put it back to the medium setting, so I think yes it will be light enough for you.
