Re: wings from switchkite

Nice review. Wanted to buy but shipment costs are beyond 200 euro ... Ouaou, what a pitty it kills the deal. Plus a risk of custom fees... No no no.
Shame ...

wings from switchkite

Hi all, Have some of you tested the wings manufactured by switchkite ? they have two models ("Vision" with transparetn panels or "Drift" without), have one compared both ? I am thinking of them to replace my aging F-one Swing; I am a beginner in wing, but well experienced in kitefoil. 1750 cm2 foil,...

Re: Any OR Crave reviews yet?

My 10m regular flite also need a bit more wind than my 9m monostrut airush one 2012 (which is exceptional on this relaunch despite its 15 years old design, but only 2.3 kg). Regular flite 10m is approx the same low wind relaunch as a classic 3 stutt. What it a bit frustrating is that "i can feel" th...

Re: Any OR Crave reviews yet?

Nice video ! I feel quite close to his riding style, so his opinion on crave vs his 2 reference ( flite and above all the roam) , would be very interesting if can ask him. In particular if roam and crave have the same low end and relaunch on a foil. To come back to my question: agree with you, first...

Re: Any OR Crave reviews yet?

How would you compare the low end of the 12m crave hl compared to roam 12m Aluula and flite 12m alulla ? On a hydrofoil ? On a TT board ? And relaunch in very low wind ? Which can relaunch from water with lowest wind ? With my roam 12m aluula (which i love on many many aspect and progressed a lot in...

Re: don't paint your entire foil kiteboarding kite do this instead

If you do not want or have time to treat all seams, i would bet that the area to treat in priority regarding the pressure losses , thus the pressure inside kite, are: The extrado before intrado As seams closed to the air entry. This is were the pressure differential is the highest, from "physics and...

Re: test of Hysper v2 from Sky Country, relaunchable single skin

Excellent review, thanks. During riding i suspect hysper has a better perforlance by looking at slightly higher aspect ratio. About stability when line tension is lost, this is another advantage of closed leading edge (on top of water relaunch): years ago with my peaks in very light wind in mountain...

Re: test of Hysper v2 from Sky Country, relaunchable single skin

Your back to back comparison with peak will have a great value for everybody.
In your opinion, which is the one you can keep in the air with le lightest wind at zenith ? And by looping it ?
