It is worth noting that a bar and lines are included with those prices. Are they advocating leaving the bar on all the time, like with their foils, and unlike most other LEI riders?

Fuck nothing like an entry level price! That's totally cost prohibitive for us down under after conversion. Well above the other kites. it better perform well above them. That's without shipping and I know flysurfer are fuckin terrible subsidising this cost..hence why no-one rides them here...some...but I can look up and down the metro coast and count 200 plus kites and not see one!

So pull in the bar and you get static grunt by working that trailing edge, build speed then let out to boost...got some potential.

Fuck that's expensive, oh already said that.

Man that depth in the wing stays all the way through. Weird.

2325 plus 15% cad taxes... 2673.00$ for a 12m.... i dont think I will ever see one in my quiver. I doubt that it will be a big seller at that price.

No shit. With the foils, they are at the top of the game and can get away with a high price.

But, the LEI market is very well saturated. If the North American prices are to come in that high, it is going to be a tough sell, even if the kite is the bomb.

Hello Doctor :D
Interesting find on Flysurfer website technical data of those new tube kites
Did you notice that the sizes 12-10-8-6m2 are the projected areas :idea:

That would mean that their flat sizes are quite a bit larger

http://www.flysurfer.com/produkte/kites/cronix/

What do you think Doctor :?:

I'm already excited to see your take on this :dance: :pump: :sun: :surf: :party1: :cheers: :mosh:

Since you were asking,
so far what I think the Cronix is creating an impression of an Old Gutless Typewriter :lol:

Because the Colon & Characters are missing :naughty: :smash: :jump:
