Glad to hear you enjoyed it, I'm starting to think I'm going to reboot my quiver with this kite for the second half of the race season if my back injuries subside in time to go racing.Horst Sergio wrote: ↑Wed May 24, 2017 2:43 pmTried it around 10 weeks ago and had a short look, before FS started its flight to foil cup in Mexico with it.
Just the 13 m² on 15 m lines for around half an hour. It is really an impressive piece of technology, showing what is possible. With all the good behavior of sonic 1 & 2 combined, but even an significant step forward in technology. Talking about weight, 3 level bridle and stability and performance. Tacking felt like being pult always hardly and directly vs. windward. And bar feeling is very nice and intuitive, think my first or second flying tack, with at this time unknown short lines, has already been successful. After 10 minutes I navigated to Benni Bölli to ask him if we just can put a price on it and I keep it but they needed it for Mexico.
On the other hand the price of the Flysurfer Sonic Race ended where Ozone R1 and Fone Diablo has already been and that's just too much for me, as a normal not racing kiter. If you calculate that all these kites with super light fabric also doesn't last as long as for example a already very light Sonic 2 will. You can count around the dopple price they will cost you per session. But if money doesn't matter or you have to win in races and you're sure to be good enough, that the kite makes the difference, go for it. The kite is for sure also stable enough also for advanced kiters, but if you're not a professional kiter it might be that you have more or the same fun on a even easier Speed Lotus or so.
I guess that means it has different ratio mixers for different sections of the kite?But the new mixer is a perfect match for the 3-Level Bridle Design, and changes the ratio evenly from the middle of the kite down to the tips while braking / depowering. The system transfers power to the kite by means of three deflection pulleys – A1 with 8:1, B1 with 4:1 and B2 with 2:1 – creating a steady pathway that provides uncompromised maximum performance.
I am not 100% sure as I just had a short look on the beach but from experience and what I remember it's constructed like this:
