I'm surprised such large kites don't have a big dump valve. Those sticks are a pain. And is it a good idea to roll up a kite ? I would think that would be hard on the stitching.

Riot Core XR2LW 19m2 ( and all others) in and out valve is same
It is plenty big to get air out quick and has a well designed stick that is no pain whatsoever to use
I personally fold up wingtips to center the kite nice and neat and do not roll

Tip : when doing the "first wingtip to center folding" push at same time all the air out of both struts
......when you get to the center strut..... get also all the air out of it then "clip down the intake tube"

.......that way when folding the other wingtip to center while getting air out of struts....
...... the trapped air goes out of dump valve quick and the "center strut does not get re-filled again"

When "most air is out" remove stick and put in it's storage pouch and "unclip the center strut tube"
It is easy at this point to even get more air of kite without using the stick

You are ready for your next session :D

I have had about 80 sessions on my 19m2 in the past 11 months....and it still almost look new
