Hi guys,
I have just bougth a new quiver of rpm 2012. I had the chance to try the 8 m twice and I am really happy formthe performance.THe only strange thing is when I jumped high and pulled hardly the bar ,the tip seemed to loose its shape,assuming for a moment an y form.
Anyone else with the same problem?
I am quite sure to have pump enough the kite.

Thank you for your answers.
Good wind.
Simone

Hi, I got a 12 and 9 RPM 2012 for about 8 months. I've notice the same thing, but it gives me no problems, does it to you Simone?? maybe it looks strange to see.
I think that the kites are great, easy handling and high performing "weapons" for wave to freestyle.
I have been the owner of a lot of brands of kites in the past years (started with wipika freeair in year 2000).

Keep kiting!

Cheers!

Ciao allilaria,till now in term of security no issue. I would like to understand if I can avoid this one in some way because when the kite does this, it seems to be going to invert. But if you have ridden for 8 months I think that I can be quite regarding my concern.

Easy fix for ya. Pump your kite up! Easy as that. If your wing tips are flaring out you don't have enough air. This happens more on smaller kites as they need a higher pressure than big kites. I had this problem on my Rabbits when I was learning. Once I started pumping them up hard it stopped.

8m should be 9-10psi.

Rode RPMs a lot. Only reason for this could be:
— opened valve (hit too much)
— leak in bladder (again hit)
— underpumped

Pump your kite until you can't bend leading edge easily with one hand. When its stiff so kite holds its shape, you can ride. :thumb:
