Re: 21m Race Kites

I get the impression that you guys are talking about draggy and slow lower ar foilkites instead of recent 21m race kites. Those are agile and have a huge windrange, although the gap between the 21 and 18 is minimal. True, they are surprisingly agile. Gunnar posted a video recently of him jibing (wi...

Massive difference in low end between 21 and 15m foil kites.

And massive difference in speed, range ... fun.
Are you talking race kites and hydrofoils though?

Re: 21m Race Kites

According to my race mates it does not really give you better low end no. But a hell of a lot better VMG both up and down on the course, in light winds :thumb: Thanks Peter. My gains in low end from 15m to 18m seem fairly small, but I'm going much faster on the 18m when it's light. Makes sense that...

Re: 21m Race Kites

You could also argue that the same trend happened with inflatables (up to 25 m?) Where are they now ? You definitely get to a point of diminishing returns. Flysurfer has had 21m foil kites forever, so I don't think this is a fad. 18m-19m seems to have been the biggest size for inflatables since tho...

21m Race Kites

Most race kites are available in 21m size now. Does it give you noticeably better low end than an 18m race kite? Or does it just allow you to go faster on shorter lines in the same wind? Asking specifically for riding race hydrofoils. From what I've seen, the best absolute low end is on a big surf w...

Re: Cabrinha AV8 Full Carbon Race Hydrofoil

I love the idea of lower cost one design, but I don't really see how this is the answer. Race kites and foils have kept changing and it costs a lot to keep up. What makes this a better "one design" than a Moses Comet and Ozone Edges for example? Most people who race want foil kites. Racing on a 14m ...

Re: Cabrinha AV8 Full Carbon Race Hydrofoil

> new kite as well I'm interested in that. Any more info? I saw the NP FRX kites and hydrofoils at the Fort 2 Battery race in Charleston last year. The NP FRX hydrofoil became this Cabrinha foil. The NP FRX kite was closely based on the old Cabrinha Velocity, not the newer Apollo, so I would guess ...
