[quote="MikeBirt"]They joys of reviews..
The zero is unlike any other big kite I have tested, that's for sure, and being unique does bring problems if you compare it to the way everything else works.
80kg, with a tiny board, in full power conditions, you are asking for pain...
I'm 84kg and I cannot physically ride the thing after 8-9 knots.
Mike I clearly stated I was in 10-12kns This is not over powered at all.
The other two riders had 134 and 138 boards and where also blown away with the poor flying characteristics of this kite. lol 2-5kns you will not fly this kite nor any other kite for that matter. Just from that statement I can see I'm wasting my time here.
Anyway I posted this thread for an unbiased review from three guys that tried the Air rush zero. Ironically we all had the same view and conclusion. My point is if your looking to buy one of these test fly it first. It may be for you and it may not.
One more item regrading this kite it does not handle gusty conditions at all I would not recommend this kite in a gusty location.
If you look through the forums you will see I'm not alone in my review. Its the kites first year maybe next year Air Rush will fix these bugs and make the kite more enjoyable and able to travel upwind without constantly fighting the kite.
