Re: north rebel pigtails

Don't need to disassemble or any measurements for a bridle symmetry check.

Just hold every section against their counter part under the same tension and note if there is any difference greater than 10mm. Could also be the stretching canopy or twisted bladders causing the kite to pull to one side.

Re: Warmest wetsuit ever

Billabong furnace 7/6 also exists ;)

My go to wetsuit for anything below 12deg C. Can go without gloves until 6deg because it is too hot otherwise.

Re: Race Bar Lines

Don't go too thin, top riders are pushing so much power that they ride 400-500DaN lines just to keep them from snapping as losing multiple races due to gear failure is more costly than a tiny bit of drag.

Re: Repurposing kite pump for bike or car?

I am not good enough in physics to understand the basic details, but how much pressure would you have to apply to get a normal kite pump to reach 40psi+? Considering the volume you would have to push through wouldn't that be hard? Assuming the seals would hold. Assuming a piston of 10cm diameter (4...

Re: PU covered depower line check?

Do you have any examples of tight fit designs that never failed (until visible wear on the plastic)? I presume core sensor2s is tight fit.. I snapped PU line in the first 6months with no noticeable wear on the white plastic shell. my guess is that salty water still gets in and perhaps helps to crea...

Re: Clickbar red safety line end cap removal

In the original hack of the powerlines (thanks Foil) he sanded down the hole where the line enters the PU as otherwise the connections would not pass through the PU. Your fix does pass the PU tube in case you need to pull your safety? No modifications needed, a loop-loop connection in sk99 500 line...

Re: Mach flott den Schrott: Good ideas for self made bars

I copied Evan’s front line attachment and single line safety. I had the knot pull thru twice so added the stopper ball. Works like a champ! I used clear PU tube cover on the safety line. Keeps it from wrapping in or around the cleat. It’s a tight fit where it’s spliced so I don’t worry about sand a...

Re: Clickbar red safety line end cap removal

That is awesome! Thanks for doing that. What lines would you recommend for foiling? Edit Looks like you buy front upper lines, front lower lines, rear lines, and replaceable red line to make a set. Four items in total Option for 300 or 500 daN lines Could I get 200 daN rear lines? 300 Front and bac...

Re: PU covered depower line check?

There are two methods to cover a line with pu: - tight fit, sand can't get inside the tube and the line inside will last longer than the outer tube. - loose fit, sand gets into the tube and wears down the line. These will fail with no visible clue on the outside. Sadly the majority of the industry c...

Re: Clickbar red safety line end cap removal

Haters gonna hate. The Click bar itself is great, only downside are the lines (even in the 2021 model in my view) and the wear on the red front line! Foil just fixed this! I think it's awesome and Duotone should adapt this or Evan from Infexion should take it up in the assortment! Finally got time ...
