Best kites for racing ?

Postby orwell » Fri Apr 01, 2011 4:15 pm

Hello guys, the ones who have tested some kites.
Which ones do you think it will be the top 3 of kites for racing?
I have to change mines and i think to ask you before i test some and decide which one i like.

as a big Naish fan..I'd say try out the new Naish Charger 2011...I'm I'll be sleeping outside the shop when it comes out ;-) It is pretty much made for racing and beginners, which actually works well now.

High aspect++, stable, good windrange, and powerfull pull, easy and fast relaunch.

The best way is to look at the last few racing competitions and see who is winning or at least who is on the top 10!
See at PKRA Mexico..

If you are not going to compite there are more options, look for a 5 strut kite. In my expirience the kite dosent make the big gap between win or loose, if you are gonna be a freeride racers ( obiusly on a kite raceboard) You can buy most of the 5struts kites on the market.

but if you want some of the top performance kites, look at the top podiums and decide your self, Choose anything you see beetween 1 and 5 positios, It is full of Ozone´s Edges and North Dino´s

When You have a kite already in your mind, let me know i can tell in detail how its rides !! i try almost all the kites here in Colombia, I sell most all the brands
