Re: About a 5 lines Kite setup.

Five line systems aren’t as complex as everyone likes to make out. North have a really good, safe and well proven system with lots of information available. All you may need to do is get your line lengths right and pigtails.

Cheers,

Re: About a 5 lines Kite setup.

Hey Yuval, You should definitely have a crack at it. Even though they have a high Y (I think) I would probably just get a bar from switch as I think they sell a five line kit for it. A north five line bar would work better, but that would probably cost you more. Sounds like it would be fun, just be ...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

LL2017, I rode my new Pivot for 3 hours yesterday on a North Nugget (strapless) and even though they are different sizes I can say that the Pivot is a lot more wave orientated than the XR5. The Pivot was a very easy to ride kite. I really liked it at first but I need more time on it to give more inf...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

Regarding Harnesses.. I have switched between both over the years and I am using a seat atm. The waist does allow a lot more freedom of movement, but a seat pulls from lower and helps get the power to the board with easier rail engagement... but that is just personal experience, as everyone is diffe...

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

@ 170lbs I think a 15/12 combo would be too close. @ 220lbs I can get going on my 12m XR5 in 15knots on a largish twintip with small jumps. My next biggest kite I a 16m Airush One which gets get going on two knots earlier on the same board. If I use my North Nugget I can going a little bit earlier o...

LL2017,

What do you weigh? This may help with the advice.

Re: Beginner kite- Core XR5 or Naish Pivot

I have had a 12m XR5 for about a year now and at first I was disappointed with it and called it boring, but I came to realize it was refined....It did everything smoother than my last kite and no nasty habits or surprises. I would not call it the fastest kite, or the quickest turning kite, or the mo...

Re: Leading Edge Bulge

I got the grey and teal. The canopy material is awesome and the dacron seems of good quality. The kite feels incredibly lite from what I am used to. Yet to pump it up, however it says that the recommended pressure is 11psi.

The bar is awesome.....a quality piece of gear with good attention to detail.

Re: Leading Edge Bulge

What size are you looking at? I dunno if you like the color scheme on the new Naish kites (I love the look of the teal / red), but apparently they are using a new thread that allows for more PSI in the kite without any deforming. The Slash is pretty epic IMO. Just ordered a 2019 8m Pivot with a BTB...

Re: Leading Edge Bulge

The color scheme? Really that is your deciding factor in a kite? Then what about the name Duotone? Maybe North can sell stickers. What’s wrong with not liking the colour scheme? Why would you spend your hard earned cash on a toy that you don’t like the look of? Especially when you can buy one you d...
