Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

The next session I tried to not use the trim and didn't work for me at all! I definitely need some trim to go upwind with a powered kite (e.g. 15m in 15+ knots). I guess you were on long lines, correct? I have stopped using the depower once I've started to use short lines. Soul 15m on 9-12m lines w...

Foil kites - lost of center lines?

Wonder to know your experiences in a case of breaking TWO center lines of a foil kite?

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

Looking forward to seeing it. My wife is a patent attorney in Australia if you have some decent innovations you want to protect. Be warned, it's not cheap though... $10k just for Australian protection... Thank you but there is nothing special in the design I am testing. I believe that a dozen of de...

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

Do you still have a Y connection above the bar stopper or do you run both front lines through the bar? Yes, Y lines over the stopper. One line goes through a bar. If you have the trim system on the harness then I suppose you would need a full harness release to release the kite? something like a pa...

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

everything is done from de depower sistem and I can get a huge range from my kites. You would have physically 1m range of trim with the system i am testing. I believe that it is 2-3 times more than on your present race bar correct? and all achieved without any rollers, swivels, trimming line, cleat...

Re: trimless bar setup for racing?

I am testing a trimless system with no steel parts on lines but with even 1m range of trimming. I am serious.
The control bar has only lines, bar and stopper. Nothing more.
There is a kind of flag out too.
