Bar pressure seems to be fairly relative.
If you are used to (for example) a SS T2 kite, or an old Cabrinha 2:1 bow, then everything else feels light.
If you are used to the kites that have really light pressure, like an Ocean Rodeo Rise (for example) and then you try a kite that is normal, it will feel medium heavy at the bar.
I find the Epic kites to be more than the really light bar pressure kites, but less than medium, for sure.
I like T-Shirts with the back printing just in the upper center and nothing down below.
But the first version above is better than the square logo in the second.

My vote goes also for the upper t-shirt with the original "e" design. Nice design by the way!

I use to ride a Screamer 12 and Alex is right that I said on a review that it was on the heavy side (for me) but I always ride that kite in his upper range so that is normal to have higher bar pressure. But i prefer lower bar pressure. However on the Renegade 11m that I still fly frequently I found the bar pressure to be light/medium even if I ride it overpowered.

@Alex : glad you enjoy the Screamer ltd :thumb: Have fun man :bye:

With all due respect Mr.SupaEZ but please keep this thread clean with valuable information about the EPIC product. If you want to say something that has nothing to do with the EPIC product go to the BS thread. Merci d'avance et bonne journée. Ευχαριστώ παρα πολύ και καλή σου μέρα μαλακα".

P.S. On another note. This is how we test the SCREAMER (4G) prototypes.

Hey D,

I'm heading down to the OBX and will be arriving on Thursday of this week. I'm hoping the weather prediction will change but there may be a day or two where the Infinity V3 could be needed. I'd like to give it a try. Ill get ahold of ya when we get down there. Looking forward to an epic weekend :thumb:

Hello Dj A-Ron.
Will be here until June. Doing lots of demos and testing the new prototypes. Email me at: dimitri@epickites.com once you are on the Outer Banks so you can demo anything you want.

These pictures where taken yesterday in Avon (NC) during an Epic demo. These pictures are from different riders that ride other brand of kites but were interested in testing the EPIC kites to see what's all the hype about.
Like I said before, it's not the rider but the equipment that makes the rider perform so well. Look at the pictures of this Canadian kiter. His friends on the beach never saw him jump so high on his personal kites.

Dimitri-
Are you working on something really different? ....because one of these kites has NO STRUTS
....is this the new SURF KITE?
I found these pics on the "Epic Demos in OBX" thread.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Great detective work Mr.Oldnbroken. This is one of the many prototypes Momi and I have been working on. I can't tell you more until we know what direction will be taking. But if any one is interested in demoing all these new toys please come to the Outer Banks (NC-USA) so you can get your hands on one of these prototypes and let us know what you think. We had lots of people demoing these kites today and was a great success. Will be doing demos until end of June.
