Toby, how would you describe the sizes of the X2?

I would need an Airblast like quiver 11.8 - 8.4 - 6.3 or like the AR5s 15.5 - 11.5 - 7.5...

What would be the 11.5? The X2-10 or X2-12?

Thanks,
Robin

One more question. Guys from other countries say that the X2 gets delivered with the Aero bar and old safety system.

I asked Lonasport and they say that their stocked X2s already have the new bar. What do YOU know about that for Germany?

Thanks,
Robin

Hi Robin,

As far as I know the X2's available on the market are all pre-releases (only sizes 8/10/12). They all come with the Aero Carbon bar.
I only saw the new bar at the worldcup at Lake Neusiedl, since the Naish teamriders were using it. I don't think Loona belongs to the Naish team. :lol:

You should order an X2 from Loona and see, if it is the X2 bar!
If not, let us know so we will never order from Loona, because then it is prooved BS.
And this is what an online shop should never do: BS an online customer :roll:
So please let us know...

Sizes:

The 12.0 is pretty powerfull. You can fly it at lower winds as the 11.5 and fly it in stronger winds.
But still the 8-12-16 setup is the best to cover all winds. I saw the 16.0 and it is very fast and powerful.
Available approx. mid of June

Enjoy
Toby

I asked the German Distr. And they said they only deliver with the Aero bar. I do not blame Lonasport, because they have a banner on my site :wink: and because the guy was in a hurry and did not have the time...
And from my experience it is the most professional online shop I know of (order handling, speed, etc.) which I know from the time before. I do not put banners on my site of bad shops. Why should he lie to me anyway?

Anyway, the X2s are probably to late in the year for me and I'll get one of the other excellent kites.

Thanks,
Robin

but how can you tell a customer it comes with the X2 bar because you are in a hurry?
not good enough for me, even if they would have a banner on my site...

Toby, Lonasport now send me pictures of the X2 control bar.

I am not sure if this is the new bar, but at least it shows the new safety system on the bar.

Do you know if this is the Aero bar with the new safety features? I never saw an Aero bar, so I don't know.

Btw, which Aero would you choose for a X2-16/12 combo instead of the X2-8 who might be too fast?
