Re: Best TT for Big Air?

Where can I see board sizes of riders from king of air? I started doing it here from what I could remember on the day: https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2405489&p=1084926#p1084926 As edt said, it is just personal preference. I would guess most of the riders are in the 70-80kg range and most...

Re: new reviews on 2021 North Orbits?

The reviews will depend on who is riding it. The Orbit is purpose built for big air / megalooping in overpowered conditions. It does this extremely well - better than any kite I've used. However, if you aren't doing this, then the Orbit isn't going to do well in your review. It is not an all-around ...

What about auto-untwist on the bar? does it untwist itself or do you have to do it by hand under the bar?
Manual untwist. If you're worried, it's much easier to spin than other bars I've used.

Re: Foreigners going to Brasil please read

I'm no fan of Matteo V's rhetoric, but I don't see anything wrong with that statement. I want people to actually look up things before saying very strong statements without solid factual support. I suspect he got it off Ben Shapiro and thought it sounded smart. I myself am guilty of it at times. Ev...

Re: Foreigners going to Brasil please read

You have dodged nearly every challenge I have made to you. The underlying psychology of this is what I am interested in understanding. Can you help me with that. Or do you truly believe that "go write a paper" is a genuine response to a challenge. You haven't made any challenges. You said something...

Re: Foreigners going to Brasil please read

The flu and covid-19 are in no way shape or form calculated or counted in the same manner. The attention, let alone the scrutiny, is on no way comparable with covid 19 to the way flu deaths were tallied pre 2020. That is blatantly obvious to any sane person. Oh my dear Matteo, you are a bit lost. T...

When do you pull your head out of your...?!? It’s not all about the death rates (seems like some people here are trying to fix the numbers for better), it’s the possibility of other long term symptoms as well! No ordinary flu will f*** up your brains, lungs etc. the way covid19 does, happens to you...

Re: Foreigners going to Brasil please read

Sigh. That is what I was illustrating. Even assuming the 187k number was calculated and comparing it to the over-inflated flu 67k... nevermind. Covid19 bad. Directly or indirectly kills lots. How can you repeat that it is "overinflated" if you admit they weren't counted the same???? And the lack of...

Re: Does duck stance on TT wreck knees?

I doubt there's a one size fits all approach on this (a bit like squatting). When your knees bend you want them to track over your toes, not inside or outside the line of your toes. If you have a lot of hip abduction flexibility you'll likely ride with more duck. Find the most comfortable position ...
