8m flite is awesome, run it with long lines and you will know why it is called Flite.

BTW: I fly 8&12 Flites with a 10m Razor in the middle for a different experience...very happy so far.

Looping the Razor the other day almost broke a rib. It flagged me out like a rag doll and freaked me out (so I didn’t finish the loop). Love the kite…but it spanks my butt a lot! :-) The FLite has less pull thorugh the loop and that’s fine with me!

I bought one v4 10m some weeks ago ! mainly for hydrofoil application but also TT.
I just tested it today in irregular 12-25 knots on a small TT and 26m lines. I was sometine a bit overpowered with my 62kg, and sometimes hard to stay upwind, just to describe the ride conditions.
Kite is exactly what I like, fit perfectly to my needs , stable and confortable. Bar pressure is rather light which I like. well stable. Loop is powerful, not so tight as my champion Airush One on this exercise , but really sufficient and generate far more pull.during the loop than the One or the Rally.
The kite need some work when speed is very low, but then the kite accelerate really good. Hangtime is excellent . Absolutelly no stange behaviours, loved it, probably my prefered LEI today.
Now I need to test on hydrofoil in 7-14 knots to see how it behaves in lighter wind and the high speed of hydrofoil .

You can even say "love" ; and that is thanks to your reports SparD and your agreement to have put it on a scale and report the measured weight. Thanks for that.

All Flites are sold out in Europe, even second hand they are hard to get. Please expand your dealership in Europe OR.
