Re: Foil Kite tuning tips

Very useful links and thanks for posting them.
Being able to recognise when your kite is “out of tune” and the logical steps you need to take in order to “re-tune” it is a good skill to learn.
Making your own bridles is handy as well.

Re: Hangtime kite for 20+ knot hydrofoil? Flysurfer Soul 6m?

FS free repair service in the event you damage your kite is highly commendable. I would suspect the number of kites being returned for repair being minimal. However, seeing repeated returns would presumably trigger an alert to suggest the kite and owner shouldn't have got together in the first place...

Re: Ozone speed system adjustment

Hello - andrzejwodejszo Since I posted that image I have since done the same.(Nice bit of editing :D) Looks to be yet another way of re-tuning the speed system. The "A" line is fixed with the ability to adjust "B" & "C" with reference to "A", just a question of tweaking "Z" as needed. Speed System A...

Re: Peter Lynn introduce the Aero V2

Thanks for the reply and link. That looks to be a simple yet a very effective way in providing the necessary adjustment. I was only asking as I’m in the process of adapting one of my speed systems to an “adjustable” type, but not sure which method to go for as there is a number of ways it can be ach...

Re: Peter Lynn introduce the Aero V2

Does anyone have knowledge of the adjustable speed system that they could share please.
I’ve seen the video of the adjustable speed system being installed, but can’t quite see how the “adjustable” loop Is setup.

Re: Ozone speed system adjustment

Have made a start in adapting the speed system on one of my Chrono V1’s as per the image, it certainly works in aligning A,B,C connection points when PB1/PB2 pulley lines have shrunk. The pulley line on the left is Amsteel with pulley line B being Liros DSL 600 (Sleeved Dyneema) I’m just thinking if...

Re: Ozone speed system adjustment

Hello alfigo and thanks for the reply. I made a jig for the standard speed system to aid my understanding of how it works as well being able to make replacement pulley lines (PB1& PB2) or any part of the speed system for that matter. My version differs slightly with PB1 pulley line has 2 pigtails, o...

Re: Ozone speed system adjustment

I used the system used by Elf on my Chrono V2 13m using some of the original lines, since it allows to trim the mixer and the lines on the pulleys have much more travel so that I can use the kite with bars with greater depower. I have not yet been able to prove how it works. If anyone is interested...

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

@PrfctChaos – I share the same opinion albeit my comparison is with the 12m HL and my 12m Chrono V1. This being the difference between a high AR and a mid-AR foil. Once you get use to a high performance foil kite anything less is immediately noticeable. The HL does what’s it’s designed to do, launch...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I have to say seeing this video and reading the reviews it’s certainly very impressive. The comparisons/differences between the HL and Soul I suppose should be based on their respective designs and as stated in this thread “not even a fair comparison”. Both designs goals presumably have been met so ...
