... and if you look at all these "I can't launch my R1" topics also many would profit also in normal winds / sizes from lower aspect kites with easier handling.
That has nothing to do with high-AR foilkites but more with Ozone's design/manufacturing that let the kites deflate pretty quickly and suck up water like a sponge. At least until the R1 V1/Chrono V2, don't know if the R1 v2/v3 holds their air better on the ground or water.
With my R1's you could just roll them up without opening the zipper and forcing the air through the seams/vents, good luck trying that on a Peter Lynn Aero for example.
Hey man! Have you tried the Peter Lynn Aero?

Hi Gunnar, any idea what the wind speed was in your video please.
It looked like it was fully inflated within seconds of launching.

The Hyperlink looks good. Shame Flysurfer didn't bother developing a worthy successor to IMHO their best allrounder, the Speed4 DLX.

Is the weight of the kite given somewhere for each size? This info should be of great concern to foilers. :thanx:

Looks like it turns well. Can you make a comparison to 9m race foil and perhaps 9m Edge?
