cabrinha 2003 friction problem !!!

Postby trozen » Tue May 27, 2003 5:58 am

a friend of mine bought the bt12 & 17. after using it for 4-5 times the kites (both) got abrasions where the leading edge meets the carbon tips on the edges. it looks like there is a terrible friction that could get the le to tear and blow up finally...
does anyone encounter that problem ? check your kites ?
doesn't cabrinha know about it ? i'll mail them now....
