Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

slightly off original topic but you can watch any BRM video and notice each user will pull the center lines and they can easily reach the bar. maybe some people just dont know how to make full use their equipment and consider that a downfall of the brand... its pretty simply just a kite connected t...

Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

Not sure which one is best bar but my wife toolessonson cabrinha bar and she was able to release walkback upwind and reset bar easily with no mishap. It didn't work on fone Bandit at all, you can't walkbackupwind when you release, kite stays a bit powered.
New liquid force bar looks pretty nice too.

Re: Cabrinha FX 2018 vs F-One Bandit 2018.. Need help ;)

I have a last question. My Girl is riding our Kites too. The bandit is handling gusts with ease and is having a very good depower Management. Is the fx nearly good too? Didnt try depower and my buddy at his level doesn't have much feedback either on this. I know a few kiteschool that use SB for les...

Re: Looping technique, XR 5

Your explanations aren't super clear, radius of loop should be a bit tighter on 7m but also a lot more play of where the kite is looping in window... it's so fast that a bit of different timing and you might be pulling loop a lot earlier so it loops deeper than if you loop it a bit before or after 1...

Re: Cabrinha FX 2018 vs F-One Bandit 2018.. Need help ;)

Anyone can help me with the choice buying the FX or the Bandit 2018. The Bandit ist good in everything. Like it. After flying bandits for 6 years looking for something new. I like the character of the FX 2018. What do you think is the better kite? I like boosting high, doing landing loops, kiteloop...

Re: Hand drags getting yanked

Thanks for the tip as I’m also learning slides and drags, but I need to sort out a truly basic fact as I’m not into loops.. I’m not yet clear on how the two major actions affect power and speed of the loop: 1) little steering vs fishpooling , and 2) how much you pull the bar (not talking about stee...

Re: Hand drags getting yanked

I like the slow loop trick on 9m, with plenty of speed you can drag for a while. Like mkNY said I just drag for longer and pull loop late when kite is further to side of window. I don't really pop hard for those kind of just bring leg up and go for drag. But yes I agree a lot of tricks are easy in s...

Re: video: my worst wipeout of the year on backroll kiteloop,

while trying out backroll kiteloop more powered I over rotated and landed flat on ribs. no injuries but knocked the wind out of me. I have had more impressive wipeout but landing flat even at low speed isn't fun. I guess it's a good harness fit test ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csOJaqHSKRY I ...

Re: Hello from Dallas, TX

A kiting buddy is moving to Dallas from New York, he told me that locals kite on some lake over there, wind is very gusty but pretty consistent.

Good luck.
