impressions of the 12er Rival:

better than Tribal, but different!

-Lift:perfekt!
-Hangtime: WOW!
-Turningspeed:not as good as 11m Tribal but really good enough
-really grunty!
-very good depower, like on the Tribal
-Bar feeling is perfekt!
haven't flown a kite with this direct steering, yet!
-Steering forces are low
-Stability: superb, even in the hardest gusts!!!
-Safety: perfect, hardly any pull after release, even 10knts above the normal windrange!

This Kite kicks ass, before you buy a bow, try this kite!!!!

Best regards from Germany, Martin

right, i get f-one stuff cheaper.
but i ride f-one because i like the stuff and the quality of the products.
i have been riding f-one kites since i'm a beginner, and when i was asked if i want the kites cheaper i said yes :D
Martin
ps:no problem to get north or slingshot or flysurfer cheaper, perhabs even cheaper than f-one kites.
but i stay with what i like!

Looks cooll.
For me, F-one was the revelation last year. Previous kites sucked really bad and this year seems really nice for my likings, specially the SL edition!

M1 9m was nice!
M3 wasn't that good, the first really good kite from f-one was the M5.
i cannot tell u how it performs unhooked because of the terrible Wind conditions.
but i think it could be great, because it is really stable, hardly any twist in the kite, and the steering is so precise.
cheers Martin
