Re: Slingshot Ghost

Ok slingshot. A new lightweight kite, without listing the weight of the kites?

Looks like it would be fun to try,

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

Moving parts, sand, unseen wear, maintenance, heavier, way more expensive RRP, filding around on one side of the bar in gusty situations - one steering side, harder to release under load, the dodgy china stainless trust equation "we promise its 316", potential shear forces too - unlikely but possib...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

So what is inside of a click bar. F365733B-70A5-4918-8C83-5F2E874DD5E8.jpeg There are no worm gears There is a split spool, the winder, and a push button with a spring 4EE217EE-64EB-4037-9DAC-51E12AC3410C.jpeg The spool has pawls on top and bottom and when the button is pushed, it disengages the top...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

I doubt other duotone riders will use them in kota, I really hope they are free to choose.. otherwise that would be insane. The risks are so high with such bull$hit rewards. I don’t think you understand that the mega loop challenge is a step up in extreme from the Kota. Again the design is solid, t...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

Lines suck either way. Throughout the years I’ve noticed north lines deteriorate pretty quickly. It sucks, because their kites are great and last a very long time. Honestly, I would not buy duatone kites again,due to the shitty lines. Mucho sucko Yes, I agree, the lines don’t last very long. Defini...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

(Team riders use it) I suspect that is because it does work and is reliable and offers a performance advantage. And kind of required to as part of being a team rider? Plus, part of their sponsorship is pimping/testing the sponsors gear? Not to mention all of their gear is pretty much brand spanking...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

None of them are pics of kota, and like said.. part of the contract for sure. Kota though.. high winds, huge risk for very small reward$.. no one is going ride kota forced to use a click bar if they don't want to as part of their contract.. common sense. From the Kota all the video seems to be too ...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

Overall yes, but there is no difference between the max line tension in front and back lines when a kite has the depower at max and kite is for example in a turn/loop. I have snapped plenty of steering lines over the years. That is what matters. The best example of this is when a kite loops and the...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar...

But.................Having a single highly loaded cleat on the front lines vs a complicated internal system to adjust each back line evenly? For the same price - yeah that would work. But how much more money is it worth? I'd say trading a simple high load cleat for backline adjustment is worth an e...
