Race foils are great to freeride with. The problem is they are heinously expensicve and have temporary life cycle.
Yes you can. But almost non existent in the second hand market now.... My point is that these real high performance kites lifes cycles are a couple of years or and repeated tuning. They don't really suit long term free riding which is a shame.Mossy 757 wrote: ↑Mon Mar 13, 2017 2:32 pm
You can still get good life out of a foil, even when freeriding. (just don't crash 'em..)plummet wrote: ↑Sun Mar 12, 2017 7:16 pmRace foils are great to freeride with. The problem is they are heinously expensicve and have temporary life cycle.
It used to be that you could by a race kite (ozone edge) and get a good life out of it without stupid ridiculous constant tuning.
Honestly, I think the problems are way over exaggerated. With most foils these days you just tweak one or two little lines a centimeter or two and you're back in business. Every year or two you take a look at a couple of high wear parts in the speed system, but all in all I've been very happy since I switched to a quiver of foil kites.
Messed when a gust hits, what do you mean by that?
