This is from Kite Hydrofoil Miami : "first impressions on the new Kitech Universal Ram Air Kites Free RS (Ride and Style)
Just received my new 12m and took it out for a spin. The first look is impressive as the visual points on the kite had been significantly improved. The graphics looks cool, the fabric and the lines are high quality and the colors are vivid.
Setting up of the kite was easy. I only slightly pre-inflated it to see how the tips are filling up. The air nicely and quickly rams into the cells, the valves close and the kite becomes rigid, so even in low winds does not show a tendency to fold the tips (pls check on videos). This is very impressive especially in the conditions I was riding as during turns wing tip folding most of the time difficult to correct on the go and the rider needs to get into the water to refill and correct it. Today the conditions were very light: on shore 4-6knots, deep in the ocean about 11knots maximum flow. I was jibing left and right to be able to keep the momentum. During downturns the kite kept its shape helping to power out of the turns.
Bar pressure is lighter compared to the predecessor Fly4! The turning speed is faster and kiteloops are a lot of fun. The turning speed of the kite also comes handy as it generates tremendous amount of power, which at the same time is under control by pushing out the bar. So, water starting in light winds, roll tacks, 180s, 360s are coming very easy and the kite challenges you to do more and to push it harder. I can see that powered up the kite will be great for floaty transitions, board offs.
The aspect ratio of the kite is higher and it looks more slender in the sky. At the same time the it travels very fast, very much like race kites. I was able to attain the fastest speed on my Levitaz Cruizer (43.8km/h) so far despite of the light wind speeds. The slack line stability: drifting is also excellent and cannot wait to check the new 6, and 9m for riding the waves. Did not jump today, but expect to be lofty and exciting. Hope to ride it in the next couple of days and will keep you posted on jumps, relaunch and maneuvers. "
