Relaunch Chaos 2016, 2017 6. Line

Hi all

Can anyone help me out, with how good The Cabrinha Chaos water relaunch?
Hard to find info, besides from the Cabrinha website.

I like to hear from true testers!👍

Many Thanks kehler.

I have been told, that the chaos in light wind can waterstart the same way as the Vegas or Torch?

Like when you pull the 5. Line on the Vegas, the kite will lay flat on the back, and you can just pull one Of the backlines. The same way with the chaos, you pull one of the frontlines and the chaos will lay on the back, and you can pull the backline

Is that true? Thanks

My friends have them and yes, in low-wind you grab one front line and then when it lifts out of the water the opposing back line and it relaunches quite easily.

Thanks for the answer, had heard from a few places on web, that it was as difficult to waterstart as a The Fuel with 4 lines.

@Frank82 do know how the low end is on the Chaos?

What you can expect from a C kite, bit better than my Best GP's.

I know. Just got the idea, that the Chaos is one of the “softer” C kites, not as tough and crazy as the Torch?

It's a kite with great depower that rushes to the front of the window when you edge hard, just like the best gp, north vegas and airush razor. Haven't tried a torch or fuel really so can't comment on those. I did have a 14m torch 2013 for a few weeks but I didn't like that kite at all.

They are very very similar. I have an 8m torch and 7m chaos. Both boost like crazy, turn super quick and drop you like a bag of shit out of the sky. Landings are sooooo heavy.

The chaos looks thinner in the sky, maybe higher aspect ratio, but the torch is pretty easy to depower by edging. The chaos you can dump the bar or edge.

Hi kjon
What do you Think of the waterrelaunch, Is it as easy as the Torch when the Wind is light?
