SS Machine 20.5 packing size

Postby rust » Wed Jul 23, 2008 10:33 am

The question is - could this kite be packed less than 1 meter long? And less than 1 meter girth?

Thank you in advance,

Yes but you need to fully deflate the kite and fold it longwise , first the tail , then the LE towards the centre ( be careful with the cam battens ) and roll it very , very , veryyyy tight .

It will fit in most 12m kite bags cause the original bag is a pain in the &%$(=* ( worst designed bag ever )

Saludos

PS. take your time .... to squeeze all the air out of the struts is indeed a very relaxing job. :rollgrin:

make the battens removable. Mine folds in half now!
