Liquid Force, Tension Kite

Postby chimo007 » Sun Apr 06, 2003 2:35 pm


I would want to know something about these kites.

Any user review, or magazine review in the web?

In special, sizes 12 and 14

They only come in sizes 12.5 and 16.5. They are awesome kites. Very stable and very well constructed. The caution 2003 kites are the same kites. You can read many reviews about the Caution Kites. I would recommend buying a Caution as Liquid Force is out of business. Caution's come in 12 and 15m sizes. :D

Liquid Force is not out of business. They were not shipping for one month, due to an ownership change. But if you want something closer to a 14, Caution has the 15. Other than offering a few different sizes, the kites are the same.

Liquid Force may be selling existing product, but I hear they are not making any new product for 2004.

The tensions are awsome, will fly on front or rear lines. Caution designed the kite and LF made them so yes 2003 LF and cautions are the same other than size. LF's parent company went out of business I hear they may be picked up by body glove but will not have kites. not sure on this.

Actually they come in more sizes than the 16.5 and the 12.5, they have a whole range of kites. I have the 16.5m and love it, I got to ride it today and love the way it handles, its super responsive on both my 18in pulley bar and my 24in chicken loop bar. The construction is bomb proof and has a lot of low end power for a high aspect kite (only the 16.5 and the 20.5m are high aspect, others are medium). I'll be ordering a 12.5m Tension soon and have heard alot of great things about that size too. The sizes are 6.0m, 8.0m, 10.0m, 12.5m, 16.5m, and 20.5m.

If you want more info go to to find out all the info you'll need.


By the way they have been sold to Motion watersports and their kiting division is still there. Talked to the guys by e-mail this week and they are shipping product.

I too heard they are still selling 2003 products, but are not planning on designing or making any new products for 2004.
