Crossbow vs Omega

Postby vojtech » Mon Aug 05, 2013 10:42 pm

Hi, I have the opportunity to replace my 15m Omega 2007 with 13m Crossbow 2011. I know Crossbow has very good low end and it is also newer kite but not sure if it has low end as 15m Omega (which is not so good anyway). Can any one of you pros give me a piece of advice? I would really appreciate it.

Big thanks to all who reply.

Ive had the 13m from 2011 and ride a 13m from 2013 now. Great kite tons of power and lift. Buy the kite! Just be sure to keep the bar tuned as the front lines can really stretch from all the power.

Crossbow. I've got the same one and it's probably my favourite kite for free-riding: great range and boosts like a mad thing.

I did the exact thing with the same size's

From the Omega HD to the Crossbow 2011 you will notice a massive difference in the speed in which the kite moves around the window. This is the way forward and once you are used to the speed and the twitichness of the kite, you will love it. :thumb:

No question - get the Crossbow.
