I tried a 2-Liner, Cabrinha C 111, from 2002, 8.5 qm. The lines (green and red) weren`t equal. It wasn`t possible to stear that kite to the right side. If you don`t know that, you can get into dangerous situations. Who got the same kite? Please, let me know. I would like to know, if you got the same problems and
take care

how did you set it up. If you use a safety leash, it will make one side shorter and you need to compensate.

could be something else but just my 2c

The steering lines were checked. But in the manual instructions is not mentioned to control the bridle (2-Line mode) too. Why not? Either they shouldn`t sell it that way or they should mention it in the instructions. What do you think?

After prooving the length of steering lines and bridle (2-Line mode) I found out, that the bridles weren`t equal. Moving the kite to the left was no problem, moving it to the right side was a big problem. Do you have an 2-Liner too? Do we have to control the bridle too? What do you think?

I guess the bridle line fron the one side is above or under the steering line. You have to check out which position ist correct, nut it is surely this problem
