Re: 2016 switchblade and overdrive 1x trim lite bar

Just so everyone knows, we are onto 2018 now, so talking about 2016 as if it's new is a little far fetched. The internals of the control system with regards to the security line were re-engineered in 2017 to ensure a smooth deployment and reset, and an easier reset when not under load. Well you men...

Re: Much difference between 10 and 12?

What is the usage of the 13m size drifter then? I was offered a good deal for 2016 drifter in size of 13m. Am 95kg weight, since 2016 this kite has setting for a freeride ride, mainly bought it to to get on water at slower winds then 8ms. Currently with switchblade 10m and twintip riding on 8m - 12...

Re: Much difference between 10 and 12?

Or 11? :lol: Tried a Drifter 10 and other wave kites in 10m recently and liked them, but with our wind I wondered about a 12m for more bottom end. Not interested in chasing low wind riding, as the water is too flat on the lake, but when it gets to about 18 knots I want to ride a directional :D Do t...

Re: 2016 switchblade and overdrive 1x trim lite bar

Just a second here, firstly I am a Cabrinha Fan-Boy, so what I say is for the good of the brand, I'm not here to slag it.

Re: 2016 switchblade and overdrive 1x trim lite bar

The 2016 1X 52cm is on sale here in UK at $280 equiv. (£199 incl shipping) You get the feeling they are maybe built to a price and not the Rolls Royce we were led to believe! Still a good bar. Have checked mine and some need a tug but they all worked well enough to flag out. Not sure they'd re-set ...

Re: Fastest turning wave/boost kite

Seems like a good jumper as well. I have only tried it once and was in crazy storm so was more in survival mode than getting t...
