I fly my X2 20 first time. The bar setup is different of I m used to and the riding style too.
The depower is short and the trim range is short to (too short for my taste). I found the most confortable setting having a good power setting at max depower (resting on the upper knot) and riding mostly with the bar ar this position. For jumping or on a lull take the bar back to full power.
Anyone tries this kites with shorter lines?
They turn great, but if they were a little faster at the top when jumping, who knows?

Hi Hernan,
Most of the guys around here with X2's ride them on full depower too.

Hi, Fokiten
Not really because I get only the X2 20 and keep my 11,8 and 8,4.
The X2 are new here in Argentina because our season just begin. What is impressive is the hangtime this kites gives you. In its upper range they really dont get down for a long time!!
