Yeah... Sailkote is a dry lube (Dries Dry) so it's doesn't attacked sand...

I've been using my SA2 19m for 120-150hrs, snow & water. Only just replaced tip line that go through small ring that wears when turning allot). I left of Med steering, no adjustments yet. Still flies great. But do check out. No canopy rips or holes standing up very well.

Sailkote -

Fred and PBK - Do you spray Sailkote on just the harness lines, or the lines and the canopy fabric?

Just the lines with friction... for me... extended life...Great for pulleys too... with my eye on the next 6-10mph day... when I used to ride my bike...or standing waiting on a beautiful day... Basically many Summer wind days here.

Here is the Hangtime Competition Link if interested...

Hey guys, have a look at this lightwind video that I uploaded a couple of hours ago.
Actually we are riding Speed2 15 and Speed2 15 Silverarrow... but as far as we could tell no inflato could go in the light stuff we rode in the first part of the movie (several tried though... and all major brands were present at the demo-event with some very good teamriders).

And yes, we had a *blast*! :thumb:

Zipper, tip line that goes through the ring, pullys and yellow/green pully lines.

The large silver line that goes through the bar I protect with candle wax.
