Who is the recent "click-in" Chicken Loop Manufacturer?

I know this was discussed in the past (https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2390182&start=60), but it seems like there are many brands which are using the same bar design and chicken loop system which makes me believe that it's all designed and make by the same contract manufacturer (or at leas...

Re: Has anyone replaced struts with carbon fiber/fiber glass tent poles?

No need To replace the struts at all. I routinely use an 11m fuel with three struts removed on snow for unhooked riding. I think most true C kites can fly great as 2 strut kites. Could never tell from watching mine fly. What they gain on the bottom end they sacrifice at the top .Just throw it up on...

Has anyone replaced struts with carbon fiber/fiber glass tent poles?

I'm looking to ride C kites for snowkiting as I'm working on unhooked tricks/hitting features. I am blessed with some (2005?) Best Yargas, but the old inflate system isn't working well for the struts (where the valve slowly leak). I don't want to have to fix these old valves because pumping them up ...

Coating to reduce the air permeability in old flysurfers

I have a very UV logged FS 19m which doesn't told air, and flaps when you dive it through the power zone. I learnt about the "kiss test" where can see if air permeates through the canopy, and when you suck the kite, you can feel that air passes through, unlike the new Souls that I tried on the beach...

beginner setup for light winds

Hey all, Been kiting for two years now in various places, but mostly kite now on the great lakes and lake Simcoe in Ontario Canada. I twin tip (prefer to wear boots), and jump and land basic tricks such as backrolls and inverts. When it's >10-12 knots I'm happy to be on my 19m Flysurfer on a twin ti...

Re: Pansh kites for snow kiting

This is great! Seems like the best quiver would be a 19m Aurora2, light material strickly for very low end days on the water with a large TT. Final question: What model of pansh kite would you recommend for the 9-11 M range? One which loops well and would work great up the mountains (and still be go...

Re: Pansh kites for snow kiting

I also have a 15M switch helium2 (LEI) for the low end and just ordered a 10M element. I am usually in places with very low wind so getting a foil is for a better low end than the helium, and still get me out.


For snowkites, do people usually get different sizes or how does that work?
