Re: Pansh Aurora III vs A15

Does this mod for the genesis have more or less bar pressure compared to Jackomixer? I’d say the same :) I am afraid it is not true. Jackomixer is not equivalent to standard 1:2:4 mixer, and so not equivalent to a pulley bar. Jackomier is 1:2:3 as far as i remember : it decreases profile camber whe...

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

BTW I checked Sonic Race line plan and it quite a lot seems to me there is a design flaw in it... I leave it to foil kite enthusiasts to find out what suspicious or even wrong there is in Sonic Race.

Re: Pansh Aurora III vs A15

Hi Bille, My idea comes from Flysurfer’s Speed4DLX and F-One’s Diablo1 kites. The Speed4 uses 3 span rows with a single pulley mixer. The Diablo uses a “Turbo” line so mid-sheeting C=Z. This mixer reverses the idea so Z=C mid-sheeting. M4-Flysurfer_Speed4_B-Tuning.jpg My goal was to match the low AR...

Re: Pansh Aurora III vs A15

I made this mod to a 12m Genesis [AR=3.8] inspired by 10m Speed4DLX that only uses A, B & Z Mains [AR=4.8]. Works excellent. Plan to design & tune lengths for this mod on a 12m A15 next [AR=4.2]. Don't think it is a good mod for a higher aspect ratio kite like the Aurora.

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

That setting lowers camber quite a lot. It means kite will fly slower, boosting/upwind is worse and kite sits deeper in the WW. However lower camber means better stability. If you make kite fly further in WW it also means it will be more prone to unstability and even collapses. I've used that kite ...

Re: Flysurfer sonic Race

I was told that the Sonic Race was designed specifically for hydrofoil racing and that it is not much fun with a twintip. Just curious if anyone has tried one with a regular board and what they thought of it? Old thread but I have a question about the upper windrange of the SonicFR. I have flown an...

Re: Kite foiling set to die almost completely out as wing foiling takes hold

Didn't longwhitecloud also start a thread with this same topic a few months ago? Kite Foiling is dying sooo fast https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=1112321#p1112321 Most of these activities are still around...

Re: Neo Bridle Questions

Thanks jespin4845
I agree, think I'll set the Front Bridle A-High Depower Setting and Tip Bridle B-Soft Sheeting Force Setting for lighter bar pressure and tighter turning.

Neo Bridle Questions

New old kite questions from an old but not new kiter. Going over a used 12m 2015 Neo for a 90Kg surfboard rider who likes to ride powered in wind waves. Plan to use the Front Bridle A-High Depower Setting with the Tip Bridle B-Hard Sheeting Force Setting. Any advice from users of 2015, 16, 17... Neo...
