It might increase the bar pressure alot.

Look out someone will patent it now off your drawing and you will be doing posts about how you got screwed on your idea.

Pls keep an eye to your local Wipika shop / distributors, they're going to release BMX, the hybrid concept.
Hope you will be liking it.

Hhehehe
tanks 4 all, I talked to my friend Sergio (The guy who invent the bridles system of the waroo), he did the same with a 2004 kite.
The kite wins a lot of speed and depower, so maybe it will work :thumb:
now just I have to take measures and to put it on the kite.
Very soon report :wink:

There's no harm in trying.

If you flatten the overall profile too much with the bridal the LE will flatten while the TE stays regular C kite shaped. This will reduce power overall and slow result in slow turning.
