Re: Race Control System - much better depower trim!

I thought all the racers were building themselves custom bars w 2:1 pully depower AND the "Click" bar system?

Re: biggest regret purchase

Buying a full set of new Cabrihna stuff, as my first gear (after trainer kite), on the advise of a friend "just get a 12m". Turns out none of it was right for our local conditions, and I had to buy a bigger used board, and bigger used kite, just to learn. I owned that 2014 Cabrihna Vector 12m for tw...

Re: Going from Short Mast to Long mast Advice

I'm currently riding 24" mast on hoverglide flight school. I've experienced the jump from 17" mast to 24" mast, and surface riding definitely does feel different. Each step longer makes the board behave less like a surfboard when on the water. Each step lowers the roll center of the board/foil combo...

Re: Kitesailing around the world

No, a 12m kite would not be enough to pull a ship. You sail world record for sail circumnavigation. The average speed record for a circumnavigation is nearly 30knots. Kitetender only goes about 20 knots. So even if your boat were the same size (a dinghy) you would need either a bigger kite and/or hy...

Re: Foiling without a kite

Foil pumping doesn't look as cool as it should (the concept is awesome!). Possible invention: a foil that is sprung, and can rotate about its angle of attack (AoA) axis, just like the aquaskipper. So when the main foil feels more downward load, the spring compresses, and the foil rotates and decreas...

Re: One strut kites - which the lightest of them all?

I own a 12m Solo (2.8 kg) and a 12m Ultra (2.4 kg). Those 400 g, structure and shape, make a significant perceivable difference. Since I had the Ultra after the Solo, I almost forgot the frequent swim in sessions that I had with the Solo (in similar <10 knots conditions). It is quite easy for me to...

Re: One strut kites - which the lightest of them all?

So the ideal database would have weight and measured area of each kite? Projected area is tougher to measure, so we just have to take the manufacturers' word for it?

Re: One strut kites - which the lightest of them all?

Back to the original post, can we get weights for all these kites? Maybe add Airush Lithum One kites? Maybe add BRM, Voyager, and Gong strutless? Maybe even add light-wind-specific three strut, like OR Flite? But let's stick to weights instead of arguing about our favorites. I would love a true refe...
