Adjust the fixed stopper down a bit so you cannot sheet out too much.

Undersheeted and the nose liked to drop on the old kites.

Just ride with a light pressure on the steering lines and they will be fine.

I rode my 2009 6.5 gypsy and 2009 9m smoke every now and then and they are a great kite.

2010 or 2011, no difference as of now.

In early 2011 an updated rabbit kite range will come with new graphics and a 10.5m.

My guess is design won't change other than an alternate bar design.

The original bar is my favorite.

This thread reminded me an old one :


I am amazed to see that people said 2 years ago that the Rabbits were perfect with no tendency to Hindenberg at all, it was rider fault :o .... and it is now recognized that it was a design issue at this time :angryfire:
Pimping side effect at its best :nono: or incompetence :(

Have Fun & Ride Safe
