Has anyone tried the varial race 2013 in the 17m size? Or maybe the last years 17m?
I`m looking for a LW kite and a hangtime/boost kite. I`m a heavy guy(97kg).
I will demo the 15m this week but there`s no way I can find a 17m to demo.
The only other kite close to this that I have tried was the 18m and 17m dyno`s,
I really like the dyno but the price here in Brazil is crazy and also it`s very hard to find one.
If anyone can compare the speed and bar pressure of the varial race vs dyno,
it would help me a lot.
Hmattar I'm looking for someone who can bring the USA a dyno or blade fat lady.
Dyno's are over in the brazilian distributor. Will just arrive when the 2013 is released.
Since a 12m rebel is now 2300US dollars, i can't imagine the price on the dyno!
There are no blade kites rep in Brazil.
I'm looking for a freeride kite for light winds and not race. I'll have a chance to demo the 2013 15m this weekend. Lets see how it goes.
Weekend demo with Alex Pastor!!! Too bad they won't have the 17m :/
In which case you may like it - that 15 2013 model is quite quick around the window and a pretty good freeride kite. I use the 15 as my biggest and enjoy it a lot - very progressive depower too.
you ride a freerace board or a race board?
for me, the biggest % boost to your light wind ability at a fraction of the cost of new kites is a good freerace board. They need 1/2 to 1/3 the power of a trad twin tip, and are a LOT more interactive to ride in these winds.
Hey Mike! How much you weight and whats the minimum windspeed you get going in the 15m in a twintip?
I have a twintip and a surf board that is very wide custom made for light winds.
