never saw or ride an Infinity but by the look of it and the comments people writte here in the forum seems to be a similar kite. Just think all the marketing stuff Dimitri puts together is pointing to the wrong crowd...
Once again the INFINITY V3
was designed to have fun in light wind conditions. And when I say "fun" I am not talking about going back and forth and shoot up wind, but jumping, wave riding, kitelooping, toes side transition with down looping the kite, handle passing, going blind while kite looping, and so on.... (just check all the INFINITY V2 & V3 videos I have put out
). And when I say light wind, I mean (7 to 12 knots) if you are 160 to 190 lbs and (9 to 14 knots) if you are 200 to 300++ lbs. And of course you will need a light wind board to be able to perform in these light wind conditions and the OXYGEN board is a perfect match with the INFINITY V3. Also, I have tested the INFINITY V3 kite in different wind conditions, all the way up to (19 knots) but was on a very small board, and also all the way down to (3 to 5 knots) but this time on a huge SUP board.
Any way, kiters need to know the INFINITY model was designed to create power while moving it. And this is the reason why we made this kite to move that fast so it can create the power you need to plane in (7 to 12 knots). If it's blowing above (10 knots) then no need to move the kite to generate power. And above (10 knots) I can use the RENEGADE 13 or SCREAMER 14. So in few words the INFINITY will require some rider's input and this is the reason why you need to test drive this kite to see if its the right kite for you.
