regis, what do you think your low end will be with the 9m and freeride foil setup?

Something around 8 knots I would guess with my 60kg; but below 9-10 knots I use another kite. Power and planning limit is equivalent to a LEI of same size (maybe slightly better) , but it stays in the air and relaunches with less wind

I just tried my new Pansh a15 in small size (9m) on a hydrofoil:

Nice video Regis.

Would you were to compare Pulsion to the A15. In particular A15 seems to be very low bar pressure and sheeting the bar brings the kite back in the window without an increase in power. Sheeting out speeds the kite up and kite power comes from speed. How does Pulsion compare when you sheet on the bar?

Thank you.
Overall you are right.
The pulsion I have is 12m while my a15 is 9m . But if i try to extrapolate to same size :

-Bar pressure of Pulsion is similar maybe slightly higher if I had to bet

- as you say a15 is more sensitive to backstall (=go deeper in window) when you sheet in

- boost when sheeting in seems lower on a15.

- a15 turns slower and a bit wider

- pulsion generates more power by higher kite acceleration crossing the window.
