Flew the Ride back to back with the Park at the naish demo in OBX sound side.

Ride had a little more bar pressure but not heavy, slower of the two turning wise, better low end of the two, but you get the feeling that a lot of that impression is the bar pressure difference. It can flap a little in the loops along the trailing edge. Very easy to jump. Nice clean bar with no swivel.

The Park is the better looper. Crisper response. Also a really easy jumping kite, but had a little less power on the low end.... or at least it felt that way.

Rode 10m in both. Both are really really nice kites and I would consider the ride in a bigger kite but felt the park was a better fit for me in medium to small sizes.

The demo gang were great.

Try em if you can.

I heard that it is the new Light Wind Weapon... the reason for featuring the large TT and Alaïa in the pic :cool2:

This new kite needs its own thread, by the way... :bye:

So I got the 10 Ride. Finally. Super fun kite. I need a little more time on it, but so far it seems like a jumper. Greast upwind. Handles gusts surprisingly well. Used it with strapless skater and a TT.

Very smooth kite.
I'll try to "force" windrider to have a go on it ;-)

Hey taut have you tried the smaller rides... I want a new 6m but don't like the smaller parks, they move too fast for me.

Have not tried the 6, but have been on the 8 quite a bit now. Does not turn as fast as the Park, but a very solid ride (ugh not huge on puns).

I think what has taken me mostly by surprise is how solid the canopy has been. It has a surprisingly solid canopy. I mean I can get it to flutter, but if you throw any kite through the window while depowering I doubt they will not all flutter. I think it has more power than the Park. On the 8 I was lit up in very gusty conditions and the kite seems to handle squalls well. I do think it is important to pump it up hard...to say it this way..i took out the 6 bolt right after.

Would you consider the Bolt? I got that for my 6. I just have not tried the Ride 6.

Definitely I would not hesitate to say go for it. It does seem slower than the park..I have too little time on the 6 park and no time on the 6 ride BUT comparing the 8's it is exactly that. I do think the 8 ride seems a little more powerful than the Park. Very smooth turning, and very good windrange. The for the 8 I am thinking it was about 20-25 mph...with strong gusts.

The windgraph is the closest measure..but not entirely accurate.I'd say it was stronger than it shows.
