Re: Any Pulsion 18M Flyers Who Can Help Me With Mine?

Thought it should have a bit more power and it does when it comes to lift but not a lot more consistent pull when it is the riding position. I also get a lot of wing folding. ... I have also the Pulsion 18. It is not a high AR kite so I think it is normal that it doesn't have the same pull like Son...

Re: Gin Kiteboarding Spirit

Version 2 is available here in Switzerland. Has anybody had a chance to compare with Chrono? Maybe the 15m? Thanks - Tom

Current design fails at 220kg.
Would have imagined much higher breaking load, as all the metals parts are at least 3 mm I assume. And the plastic part doesn't take the whole load and should only be marginally be stressed. - Tom

Also designed a new stronger leash with click-in mechanism

Interesting. You could use this as a normal quick release, but would need one for each bar (to preserve the push for release direction). Would be even lighter and more minimalitic thane the big Infexion quick release. - Tom

Re: foil kite problem

You can swim to the kite to position it manually and untangle the lines / untwist the tips. I already did this successfully without even winding up the lines on the bar by swimming a large circle around the kite and approach it from behind. However, the other day it was a terrible mess, so it is alw...

Re: Gin Kiteboarding Spirit

Hi Derek, as you are familiar wth this kite: Does the Gin Spirit have a possibility to trim the bridles like Soul? Is there a bridle line plan available? -Tom

Re: Kaupter XT Falcon

Someone has any experience on it with a twin tip ? Also , for those who tried on a foil , can you please mention appropriate wind ranges for the sizes tested ? I was riding a Falcon 11 in 7 - 28 knots wind. First with a Moses Onda foil, but from 20 knots I felt overpowered (85 kg). I could still ta...

Re: Kaupter XT Falcon

I had a chance to fly the new Falcon 11. No, I am not a tester, not an influencer, just an ordinary kiter who paid the normal price for the gear. 85 kg, big foil with 1200 ccm. I would still consider myself a beginner on foil and wanted to have a replacement for my Soul 12, that I consider as diffic...

Re: Gin Kiteboarding Spirit

any 1st hand experiences? ..reviews? I have flown the 15m today with foil. Stable, no wing folding. Drifts good. Predictable, very easy. I liike it much better than the Soul 12: good turning, smooth and constant power delivery, not like Soul where power comes with a delay and then all of a suddun t...

Re: Gin Kiteboarding Spirit

Tomlutz, would love if you could share some more comparisons to the Soul, particularly how the power/jumping compares between the two? Sorry, I am beginner on foil and only jumped max. 1 m with the Spirit (don't take risks with gear that is not mine). Did not ride it on TT and can't really compare,...
