R07 7m2 5th line bridle lenght

Postby scepter » Sat May 05, 2007 7:28 pm

Tried my brand new R07 7m2 today, but the bridle from the kite to the 5th line was way to short. Someone have the right lengt for this bridle? Can`t find any data for this lengt on North site.

Are you sure? It should be very short and the 5th line under HIGH tension. It is what makes the kite FLAT.

Yes I`m shure! When I was rigging the kite I notice that the nose line looked very short. All lines was equal and i had kiting with my V07 12m2 just before trying the R07 7m2 with the same bar. So there is no bar error. In the air the frontlines had no tension (very slack) at all, and the kite was indirect and powerless because of the kite was just flying on the 5th line. I had no spare line/rope, so I was not able to fix it at the beach. I think I have to add 15-20 cm to the noseline. I will measure the noseline later and post it. Also the single noseline from the split to the 5th line was another type of rope (thick and white), not the white/blue as I have seen on other North kites. Maybee they have mixed up the noseline from a Rebel 3 or 5 m2?

Measured the noseline and it`s 97 x 47,5 cm without disable it from the kite. So it would be more like 100 x 48-49 cm if taken of i think.

Tried the kite today again after adding 15 cm to the noseline, and the kite was flying super nice :thumb:

Wind was between 20 - 24 knots, and I was so suprised how good the R07 7m2 performed together with my Sky Pro 07. Plenty of power and the speed I got was just amazing. Tried some unhooked tricks, and it feels direct with realy good pop!

Most other was out with 10-12 m2 bows/flat-kites.

I think this will be my favourite kite this summer :D

hey dwight,

while you are at it, do you mind finding the nose line lengths for all the rhino sizes.

personally I'm interested in the size 12 rhino. But I think that everyone else would appreciate the info on the other sizes too...

aahi

scepter, I know how you feel, my rebel 9 had the nose line of the 7 on it... who ever is inspecting at the factory, needs get with it...

I fully agree. I happens too often to be a coincidence. My Rebel7m came with a too short noseline too :(
I wonder how many Jo average ride their North kite with a wrong noseline without knowing :-?
