Re: Development Never Stops - Eleveight 2020

Tell me more about the WS please. Especially curious about the new 13m size. How does it cross over to other than surf style riding?

Re: Eleveight FS Review

I don't see why it wouldn't work for heavier riders? I am not heavy but I see no reason why not. When this kite is loaded, it is extremely exciting. Explosive jumps and loops like a dream. My personal best is 62ft on the 10m. Just try one if you get a chance.

Re: Review Eleveight RS 2019

Funny, I feel the kite has great hang time and floats you down slowly. Easy to do soft landings. Tried the FS as well and that one comes down faster. Sure you tried an RS??

Re: Best bankrupt?

Let's see what they come up with for 2019? With the kite designer gone, are they hiring a new designer and start new kite designs from scratch? Or just keep changing colors and print?

Re: Eleveight FS reviews?

The PS is strictly for schools. I don't think you want this kite past the initial schooling days. Go RS rather.

Re: Eleveight kites

I'm not sure why some folks question 12-15kn on a 12m? I am 165 lbs and 12m serves me well as a light wind kite. Sure, I take a flat light wind board on super light days and switch to my 135x40cm twin tip once it picks up a bit. 12m kites with good low end do the trick for lighter folks. For me it i...

Re: Eleveight RS review

Just rode the 12m RS today. Looks about right to size I would say. Less grunt than my 12m XR5 but lighter bar pressure and quicker turning. As a pretty light guy at 165 lbs I actually like the lighter less grunty feel of the 12m. I had a harder time to feel where the kite is in the sky then on an XR...

Re: Core Nexus and Nexus LW

No reviews yet? I know there are demos around the US now but I did not have a chance to fly one. Happy with my XR5's but in my largest size (12m) I would be glad to entertain a quicker more agile kite. I could do with a little less grunt. At 165lbs the 12m is lately my light wind kite. Wonder how mu...

Re: Core XR5 high bar pressure?

My impression initially was higher bar pressure as well. But there is the setting on the wing tip. I've put it on lightest on my XR4's so I had to do it as well on the 12m XR5 but decided to leave it in the medium (factory default) on the 9m. I think the XR5's just simply pull more and that might ad...
