Length of frontleader lines versus backleader lines

forum for kitesurfers


Postby Guest » Tue Nov 26, 2002 9:06 pm

Hi I'm buying a LEI this weekend (CO2).
Still would like to use my bar.
Question: is there any length difference in front lines versus backlines at the start ?
Or are all 4 lines equally long ?
For my ARC I use about 20cm shorter lines at start.
Just wanted to know, before I do something stupid when launching first time.

As a thumbrule, all 4 lines are of equal lenght on LEI's.

At least you can power/depower to get the correct length, the very first time you test the kite - so it can't go all wrong.

Then you can shorten the lines that needs so (if they need any adjustment at all...)

I will make my center line towards the clamcleat a bit longer in order to get even length.

anono, Tune the pigs tails for each kite and leave your tuned bar alone. I think you you understand this,just making sure.
