Razors are just getting to the riders so it may be a bit before more user reviews show up.

Diablo is a true 5 line kite but some people ride it braced like the Hadlow pro from the front lines instead of a 5th. Probably a little more skill to the relaunch that way. Would not say they are renowned for their low end, but they are a really nice modern C kite with well balanced characteristics. Decent power, very good depower, turn quick, great top end, can handle a lot of oversheeting, drift and unhook as well as any kite out there. I'm gonna try the razor in hopes it has a lot of the same qualities but gets me on a smaller kite. Most reports so far are of pretty mad low end grunt. Ross had the Diablo pretty dialed in, so to outright replace it with an SLE it must be something special. Will let you know.

Razor is a 4 liner. You must be talking bout Diablos. Both are great. Having gone from Diablos to Razors I'd never go back. You put up with stuff like 5 lines and less grunt per meter to get the great flying characteristics of C kites. The Razor is a replacement for the Diablo and for good reason. Flight, drift, turning and unhooked are all there in spades with all the pluses of a simple small and powerfull bridled kite.

Total winner.

Hey Starsky,

I think he was referring to the Airush Razor: http://airush.com/2011/products/razor/ which is a 5 line kite but they released option to use 6 line for those who choose to do so.

All the best,
Schmidy

Bet your right. Easy mistake. Pretty sure Alex the OP is talking about OR's Razor not the Airush. I bet the Airush C is pretty sweet too. They have been at it a long time and you just cant go that far wrong with a modern C. It has taken a while to get bridled kites that can really do what C's have done for years. Not a lot of hype on OR's new kite but it will sell itself soon enough. Major step forward. Sounds crazy but the 10m razor (OR) has damn near the grunt my 14m diablo had with lightyears more speed and workability. Took all of one underpowered flick of the kite to feel there was no going back. The future is not only friendlier, its smaller, faster and way more powerful.
