Re: The new Spleene Q

Yes, you are missing something here. He is trying to provoke the kite to invert and to loop through itself. In the commentary he says that the kite sits nicely on its back without trying to flutter upwards or showing signs to invert. From this, belly up position you normally just pull one of the two...

Re: Delta-ish Comparisons

Here is a website that made short video clips of the main functions of the various kites. http://www.kiteonlinetest.de/wp/materialtests-2009/spleene-q/ This link is to the Spleene "Q" 12m test but at the top right hand corner you can choose other kites. Unfortunately it is all in German but the vide...

Re: New Spleene Kite "Q" - tested in 12m - first impressions

Here is a link to a German Website which tests kites and makes little video clips of the safety features and the handling of the kites. The Spleene kite that was used in the test was the 12m "Q". Even though it is all in German I believe it shows the safety release function and the re-assembly of th...

In the new Issue of Kite-boarding.de Magazin from Germany they tested a lot of the current Deltas. They tested F-One Bandit Dos and Revolt2, Core Combat GT, Spleene "Q", Nobile N62, Best Kahoona, North Evo '09. Unfortunately for you it is all written in German but it is the first pretty comprehensiv...

Re: Mako 140 + Session 141x43 HT

The new 2009 Spleene Sessions (both HT and FT) have more rocker than the Sessions of previous years. Thanks to the channel Jet Bottom on the HT-Sessions there is no difference in terms of early planing compared to previous models but they handle the chop and waves a lot better now. However they stil...

Re: Well Designed Release Systems?

You go for a handlepass and let go of the bar. The secondary release on the chickenloop is at the other end of your handlepass leash. You are right, in this scenario you will have to use the release which is hopefully on the handlepass leash. What I meant is that most people ride a suicide type set...

Re: Well Designed Release Systems?

I think that there are quite a few good working Quick Release Solutions and Safety Systems on the market right now. The problem is that nowadays you need systems that work well for unhooked riders and hooked-in riders. At Spleene we took a good look at the various aspects of safety systems and came ...
