Re: Firewire EVo versus Vader

I disagree with some points on the above statement. As I wrote, my current board is 14 liters! And I would not want a bigger board. It's more about the outline than thickness. Transitions and low end is really not a problem at all with the board I have. And I ride in low winds too, a lot. I do 360 g...

Re: Firewire EVo versus Vader

In kiting, where do you exactly need the volume that much? 3 liters less is not the end of the world. I currently ride a board with 14 liters and it's the best freestyle strapless board I have ever ridden; 5' x 18,8" and obviously quite thin with nice fatter rails than the middle of the board. I am ...

Re: Groove Skate

that's a bit of bummer, if the board weighs now 2,9kgs without straps and on the webpage it says 2,5 incl. straps. That is a huge difference! Have they beefed up the construction hence the weight increase?

I have 9m and 12m 2018 PIVOTS, will weigh them tomorrow, and post numbers, I'm guessing manufacturers weigh kites without attached bridles, the same as boards weighed without fins.
super, thanks very much! :bye:

Re: Pivot 2018 10-12m kite weight, please?

Totally depends on what your using it for. For anything over 14 knots it aint no big thing, but you can't assume that these days. Weight makes a huge difference these days. 10m is a lot of peoples light wind kite and they are using em right down to the critical point they fall from the sky. +1! I u...

thanks, I can do the math, but would like to hear how's it real life... Sometimes things don't add up if you know what I mean.
