Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

I have both 2015 and 2016 GP bars for my GP kites. I have only tested the 4line setup the 2015 bar. The knot should pass through QR on both the 2015 and 2016 GP bars. I know this because when I flagged of my Ckites on the 5th line the connecting knot almost always ended up past the QR. The GP's line...

Re: Convert 2016 Best GP bar to four lines possible?

Yes you can. The front lines are 19m and back lines are 22m so the front line split is 3m up which still makes it a relatively low Y split bar. It's fairly straightforward: 1) Remove the metal leash ring off the red safety line at the QR. 2) Pull out the red safety line from the QR and bar. 3)Discon...

Re: Piq, Xensr or Woo?

And you're thinking to 'measure' your jumps? I'm not being a 'downer' but for ~$300 invest in more time on kiting, and not 'gadgeting'. The reason being is that I rarely check my height any more, it's like 'yeah whatever it says' after the sesh. The added value is actually low, once you pass the in...

Re: Poll! who is going to win King of the Air 2018?

Based off the first day of heats I would put Aaron Hadlow as the prime contender. The guy is a beast and he has a big bag of tricks from unhooked to powered loops. Changing from boots to straps and throwing an incredible frontroll kiteloop board off just showed how versatile he is. Apparently he was...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!

I love air style, foiling, strapless and wakestyle. The appeal of which is that to learn certain tricks and to land them consistently one must crash hundreds of times. The challenge of learning a difficult handle pass trick and then mastering it gives great reward. Learning a strapless back roll mi...

Re: How often do you break bars? How's warranty?

Slingshot bars are definitely very durable and I like how solid they feel compared to lighter bars (like core's) which feel a bit flimsy. The only thing i have broken on a SS bar is the rear lines as they are thinner/weaker than the front lines. Weight savings is great but it needs to carefully acco...
