could someone give a list e.g. what size of foil kite you need when you use a 10 meter LEI?
thanks in advance
Hi man, if you use 10m LEI, the Speed 4 8m, would be a great choice, would will get better wind range and the turning it's the same.
PMU is still 10 years behind with his claims, it's 2013 and the kite industry is moving everyday ...
the Speed 4 is insane ... stabile,strong, safe ....
It's hard to compare foil and LEI in general. too many brands, types of kites, conditions ...
if you want some advice, specify for what do you want to use the kite??
In some cases is foil better then LEI in some is LEI useless.
For the foil
- easier to carry, specially when you do backcountry, much more lighter and smaller backpack
- faster and easier to repair
- could ride in low temperatures
- faster set up and packing
- safer is High mountains
For the LEI
- more stable is gust (maybe)
where do you live or where do you plan to ride ... check the local riders what they ride and what they would recommend to you.
Have a friend who ride LEI on water and foil on land and snow, some friends ride LEI everywhere and some foil ..... what ever you feel more comfortable for you...
