Much better handling than I expected..and the performance and feeling is just amazing. I can´t compare much with other RAM airs though as I have not been ram´airing much since my buggy days :-)

That kite is the best foil I ever flown! 15 years of kiting and really that kite blow me away! No bar pressure, upwind like crazy, NO wrap in any circomstance, take shitty wind and don't move... Not a racing kite but for shure a real hydrofoil friendly kite! Just tried it you will see for yourself!

Have a good ride!

Many new and unknown posters praising this kite :

"I am so lucky to have one", "The best ever", " Get one quickly before they sell out".

Relax guys, if the kite is so good it will advertise itself, praising a product based on affiliation, preferences and no direct comparison, is worthless.

Engineering analysis shows a lot of bridle (and bridle drag) in the kite. On A-row center of kite every cell has bridle attachments when high performance competitors have every 3rd cell.

for sure the Chrono 1-2, R1, FR or any foil kite in the word will be "NO wrap in any circomstance, take shitty wind and don't move" if they have a bride per cell. :lol:

It's every cell in the center then every 2nd towards the tips. Is there really much benefit to reducing bridles? You use less they then become thicker, the kite may become thicker too and the internal structure definitely becomes more complicated, i.e. a nightmare to repair.

i doubt that the bridle shown in the sketch represents the real bridle setup?!?!

however, the things i noticed from the data is, that the 15 has 10 cells less than the joker6, the ar is even a wee bit more and it is lighter. i assume that the reduced cell count (compared to the joker6) leads to less weight and a thicker profile.

i looking forward to checking it out back to back to my joker6 as soon as it gets warmer around here...

Via screenshot at Issuu - stored as PNG for keeping details as much as possible

- Bridle - hard to separate the rows
