Review for WiND-X Cyclonez Bow 2007 12.0

Times tested: 11+
Range: 15kn to 21kn



Review: Hi there, reviewing my own kites again.

This time the 12m. When the kite was up, you can feel that the feedback on your hands from the kite was great. The turnings were tight and fast. In the part of riding, it gives good power but I would have preferred riding the Cyclonez 16 under that condition. There was little bar pressure and we were just crusing away.

The 7 strut system gives it a rigid and more structured flight. It handles gusts very well. The relaunch was easy, the briddles or the lines didnt effect the relaunch.

How can this kite be improved? Maybe a single point inflation will help.

As the part on construction, the kite is designed to take the punishment you give them. Windnovation (WiND-x R&D division) has tested on all kinds of stitching and materials. We crashed a few and it looks like its gonna last. You can read more about Windnovation and http://www.wind-x.com

As for the price, I think its a good bargain. Retail at 837.00, and to come complete with a bar/lines/pump; it'll cost about 940.00.
