Do you feel that the Cronix has a noticeably bigger range than the current LEI kites due to the trailing edge bridle?haiku wrote:Hi. Plummett, in small waves and gusty wind I love riding "strap in" and doing old style tricks. For this reason I still own three mutant/hybrid boards: the Naish Mutant 4,10 (still my favourite...). the RRD Toxic wave and the Advance Omega. Also the Naish Global 5,5 2011 (four fins setup) and the custom Kazuma Shibi 5,4 are very good in this way but both, obviously, can't cruise in reverse. Said that, I tried a couple of times the Ozone C4 2012 wich is totally different from the Flysurfer Cronix. Think about this: put into a blender an old Cabrinha Crossbow 2006, a Naish Park (that I really love), a Flysurfer Speed 3 (..simply amazing) and....voilà you have now a Flysurfer Cronix. Until today I've collected three sessions with the 12 and one with the 10 reporting the same impressions. First of all, jumping and hang time are very impressive. Being an high aspect kite cruising upwind is something special. The Cronix, even the 12, is very fast in the flight window and during a turn on a wave backstalling is not an issue. As I said the trim options are huge and not complicated at all. The hard settings, in sinergy with more arc, makes the Cronix very, very powerful. But what impresses me most is the bar feeling quite close to a foil kite especially in the soft bar setting. Overall I really love the Cronix for its range, versatility and special feeling .
PS: I'm currently testing the Cronix for the website www.standuppaddling.it
