Re: Eleveight XS

I don't think that's an issue, since both kite and bar are brand new. Not enough wind on the other hand might be the case.

Re: Eleveight XS

Had another session with this kite. I'm getting pretty used to it. But I found out that feedback on the bar from this kite is insignificant. On Soul I can hold it with my fingertips, I can feel the "sweet spot" where should I keep the bar for appropriate amount of power, plus I know where it is and ...

Re: Eleveight 2021 CS Vary Bar with New Quick Release - Quick-Matic II

To be fair I don't see any difference from the previous bar, unless they had minor changes to quick release.

Get more confident in jumps and actually land them. Start doing first tricks.

Re: Eleveight XS

That is not fine. This used to happen on first SLE kites up to around 2010, when they started making shorter bridles. Either the bridles are super long on this kite or it was underinflated. It might happen from time to time on a super hard crash or in the waves, but not a "couple of times" in a ses...

Re: Eleveight XS

Re: Eleveight XS

I've managed to finally get my XS out of the bag and test it. So I'm gonna write my first impressions, what I did like and what I didn't. Mostly I'm going to compare it to my FS Soul 12m, which was my main kite so far. Kite size: 14m Wind conditions: 10-18 knots Surface: Snow, quite thin layer, but ...
