Re: Airush Innovation - Load Frame Technology

:thumb: A friend has a 2 year old Union that has stretched between the frame, looks like a golf ball with all the dimples ... Question is what's worse: stretching between the frame and a kite that holds is original shape or an evenly stretched smooth canopy that completely changes the shape and pro...

Re: 2019 Duotone Click Bar

Check the lines inside the bar! Specially at the point of the small hole into the floaters. You can see the wear-points at the click intervals and the setting you ride the most will have to most fraying. The only way to spot this is to unscrew bot endcaps, one including the entire click mechanism. N...

Re: 2019 Duotone Click Bar

Apart from the fast fraying lines the click bar has some wear points on the thin lines inside the bar that are only visible when you unscrew the barends. Also check the loaded red flagout line that runs through the depower line and chickenloop that wears inside the chickenloop. The click mechanism w...

Re: how important is pre-inflation?

Pre inflation? Never, ever! With the proper side launch technique I never need it, but that is more of a feeling you must master than something you can explain. Most important things are properly securing the kite so it doesn't flap around, correct position in the window and always keep the bar clos...

Re: flying a foil kite- tips needed

Better focus on the proper bar setup instead of the trim system. For freeriding and twintip boosting a 60cm travel without any trim is enough for me with the bottom 5cm to stall the kite.

I only use trim when racing changing from up- to Downwind and the other way around.

Re: Moses/Slingshot masts and foils like razor blades!

Before they sharpened the the trailing edges they got complaints about the foil whistling because that's what you get with a rounded trailing edge. You can't please everyone as making them blunt in the factory makes it impossible for the foilers that want a sharp edge for maximum performance. If you...

Re: Upgrading my Double Agent

Racing foils jump higher than any freeride orientated ones ;)

Latest models are not that hard to ride and any other foil will feel completely different compared to the slow unstable and draggy double agent. Don't know about the hole spacing, but the standard is 165*90mm

Re: Bungee Breaking

Bungees break because of a design flaw. The outside rope the bungee is spliced into needs to stretch less than the bungee inside so it takes all the load. The problem is that when you make it so that the bungee doesn't take any load, the stretchy part of the flagout line will be longer than the leng...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

PU hoses need to fit very tightly over the inner rope, I even prefer to force it over the spliced on the end to prevent sand and dirt creeping inside the tube. This way the PU wears down with the rope inside untouched. All the problems with PU comes from lazy design and manufacturing where they fit ...

I wish you all the good luck with getting any warranty, seems like Xensr is no more.
