Re: Changing Mixer Line Length

The A15 Pansh kites I got flew fine and when I did some bridle/mixer adjustments the trade-off did not outweigh the benefits. What adjustments did you try? I have used the A15 18m unmodified on a 55cm 2:1 pulley bar and 30m lines. It is good 12-20mph on a twin tip but more fun on my 5’4” Naish Skat...

Re: Changing Mixer Line Length

Flying flysurfers I have not had to tweek much, ...

Changing Mixer Line Length

Sketched out what I think happens if A, B, C or Z line lengths are changed (one at a time) :think: After tuning some kites, I wanted a reference graphic so I could easily pick which line might be the best to lengthen or shorten. I only drew one modification per line but, for example if I were to len...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 8 Meter Line Plans

The A2 pansh bridals lines are sheathed and should shrink less than exposed braided lines. Slightly heavier, slightly more drag, but better abrasion resistance and less shinkage . Not sure of the bridal line materials , they may stretch, time will tell. I assume you measured these new before the kit...

Re: What is hot right now in kiteboarding!

What’s hot right now is what’s next…DGEK! Kite GEVs will use dynamic soaring to leverage momentum differences:
- Displacement Hull <10kts
- Planing Hull <20kts
- Hydrofoil 10-30kts
- DGEK (Dynamic Ground Effect Kiting) >30kts

Re: Recoating kite fabric

Anyone know if the ozone chrono v1 fabric was nylon or polyester or a blend, or? I’m thinking about giving the old chrono v1 a fresh outside coating of styrene butadiene rubber (marine goop) thinned with xylene and toluene. Nylon should be ok but extended exposure of polyester to these thinners may ...

Re: Pansh - what to check on arrival?

Back stalls when sheeting and needing to depower all the way, then I’d suggest lengthen your steering lines with longer pigtails so depowering is not needed. After that, another test could be to fly it on very short lines to see what is happening with the mixer and kite in flight and what characteri...
