Re: Duotone Project TETA

This is really great :thumb: Eventually, a first manufacturer starts to collect tangible, meaningful operational data to actively steer development based on facts and not on feelings! Congrats! Hopefully, other brands will copy this. However... they might lack the critical German Dr.-Ing. guys :bye...

Re: switch kite alternatives

Wouldn't bet on Zian anymore...

Never ridden a Gong, but they seem like good stuff mostly.

Fluid Kites is an option, Storm Kites (Switch rebranded their 2 models into the new Helium and Nitro, ex F-One designer), Ten, KSP, Odo... those come to mind.

Re: Core just released: XR6 and XR6 LW

Someone should ask Ruben about bars with new systems... I can't see Core coming out with anything unless it's been really tried and tested thoroughly and isn't the whole industry's bars being reviewed at the moment for ISO testing, didn't I read that somewhere? Yeah, or that other guy that somehow ...

Re: easily reset chickenloops

I completely agree. Over a year riding, couple times week, with the new system haven't had a single accidental release. I only surfkite in big swell though, I dont mega loop. Still nice to know that if you need to quick release for whatever reason, you can easily reset with one hand very quickly. M...

Re: easily reset chickenloops

People dont seem to realize this. To reset the ozone release you just insert the buckle in, like a seat belt. No pushing up on the release to lock it in. Very fast and cant imagine something any easier. In a few years this type of system will probably be standard for all kite makers. https://www.fa...

Re: New Flysurfer STOKE and new BAR

Iron heart lives on! https://flysurfer.com/files/2019/05/FORCE-Control-Bar_QuickRelease4.jpg Very good, solid QR and a safe choice to use. One-click resets are so overrated. New bar looks decent, but nothing special. But it doesn't have to be. Never really see any Stokes on the water, only Boosts. ...

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

Hmmm ... 12 pages of messages if a pro athlete gets injured but if somebody dies because he/she couldn't release the threads are typically much shorter. I feel sorry for Ruben but the 0.1% that throw 50 foot mega loops and turn the bar by 90 degrees (!!!) and touch/move the quick release need a dif...

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

I did. So if you don’t believe Rubens explanation, and the video which shows it happening, plus the later one where he explains it further, then refer to the above. Which do you think - misguided or lying? If it’s the latter then you presumably think he is content to put the lives of other kitesurf...
