Has anyone got any feedback from using one? Thinking about getting a 15m.

Be carreful with Aeolus since the high fabrication tolerances of pansh (Irregular production overall) has more impact on stability on a high AR like Aeolus. If you are not prepared to briddle setting you better go to an Aurora or a15.

Befor you buy a Pansh you should ask yourself if you are an expert to trim your kite.

If you don't want to buy a used Flysurfer or Ozone have a look at Conceptair Pulsion or HQ Matrixx!

Oh that doesn't sound to positive. So stay clear unless you are a foil kite bridle ninja which I am not! Thanks for the heads up.

or kitech free rs
Recently tried one. Way nicer than the Pansh A15 I owned (both 12m).

My review of Aurora 2 in 15m.


I bought the Aurora II in 15m since my last posting.

Got it because of price, thought it could be lower wind kite, and because wind has been too pitiful to fly the 10m.

Finally had opportunity to go out in about 10-16mph. Ocean but inside breakwater so not much wave action. Almost straight on shore wind.

For those considering the 15m, be happy, don't worry! I had completely over read and over thought this kite and foil kites! It was awesome!!

I used kite right out of bag. I had changed the Pansh bar to 20m lines ( Pansh 25m are equal lengths too). I also removed the 2 pigtails on depower line just below the connection for front lines. This made lines about even when bar powered and pulled to CL. I still pulled some depower prior to launching and on water(bar flew about 3" from CL).

Did slow downwind launch. Perfect! Used my larger 145cm TT, I weigh 165lbs (75kg?). Started at about 12mph and building to about 16mph. Just a very easy kite to use! Never over or under powered! Turns a bit slower but didn't spread hands apart. Didn't try looping kite. The drift is incredible! Did S-turns on some runs into beach, almost downwind, and kite just sits above waiting for input to go other direction! Also, kite seems to point higher than my higher aspect LEIs!

When I came in younger friends said it looked like I was riding any of my regular LEIs. Rider for another foil brand also stated that he is familiar with the Aurora and thinks it's a good first foil kite.

Anyway, I'm obviously very happy with the purchases and looking forward to more use and higher winds for the 10m.

As I said I agree with you on the Aurora. Only limited risk to be disapointed even new to foilkites. But i would not say the same for aeolus. Only one example in France and the guy had to tune bridles. That is "normal" : high aspect ratio are more sensitive and need an accurate setting out of factory.

Kitech frs, very good kite as well wrt the price. Pulsion unbeatable in really low wind... but they are not in the same "Segment" (freeride) as Aeolus (Race).

Hi,

get yourself an Aurora². Flies out of the bag. If you use 5th line, read what Pansh is stating about the line lenght of the 5th line.

tks

Forgot to also stated that I changed Pansh bar to single front line safety release! And changed CL to one with swivel. Thanks.
