Re: Ozone Chrono V3

Total line length incl Bar/trim/leaders or only the lines themself? I am now on 14m total length on the 17-20m and 11m on the smaller sizes. Even 18m lines feels really slow and draggy now :) Total line length. I use 1.2m leaders, so lines are actually 10.8m and 8.8m. -- Gunnar Ah, I should try eve...

Re: Moses 2018

The problem is, that it looks likle Moses will not be allowed to register it for Formula Kite events. -- Gunnar If possible, could you please elaborate on this if you know more? I thought the release was just too late for the registration last year, and that it would be included for this season. Th...

Re: Anyone know any details on the new upcoming foil from Flysurfer?

That see-through effect has nothing to do with the cloth types but everything with the lighting and used colours (white inside, colour outside). If they used black on the outside like the standard Sonic2 you wouldn't had this effect. AR and cell-count seems in the Chrono2/Speed5 range instead of the...

Re: Moses 2018

Curious to hear your opinion on the 2018 Comet (ML inspired?) foil Gunnar, compared to the 2017 levitaz Bionic. Also have a Comet incoming soon to see wich is faster, if only we could get some hints of spring....

Re: Post your polar and VMG

Been focussing on getting more control on high speeds upwind last months instead on trying to get the best upwind angle and increasing the speed by small steps. The angle is shit, around 60-70deg, but being able to push the foil up to 27kn gives me much more control to push the better angles consist...

Re: Click Bar Highlights

Yes, I fully agree on the (NKB) theory, but in reality there is a difference how the kite feels when the 5th line is loaded just above the Y and when its loaded through the whole lenght. Thats why Rebel and Vegas fly perfectly with a new (out of the bag) 5th el. bar, but after some time (when the l...
