Re: Nexus 2 seems to be doing everything it says on the tin

I’m not sure I agree on the top end bit yet. The bandits were awesome for top end. You can take a 9m out in mental conditions. May not on the lynx bar but switch to a low v ozone and it increases the low end loads. Tried the ozone bar on the xr today switched to the s2pro carbon half way through to ...

Re: Nexus 2 seems to be doing everything it says on the tin

Bought a 9m was blowing 23-25 knots. Most people in Portland riding xr6 that are on core. Not the nexus sadly. Hence joining the club. Got the s2pro bar with it. It was ok and did what i wanted just didn’t feel that sporty or as much of a hooligan kite like my old bandits did. Better hang time and b...

Re: Nexus 2 seems to be doing everything it says on the tin

Difficult to get a demo on anything in dorset especially core at least for long enough to take it somewhere decent to try it anyway. I just had to buy an xr6 in order to try it. Think the nexus2 would be more my type of kite to be fair. Xr6 is a little slow and possibly a bit boring but I have only ...

Re: Nexus 2 seems to be doing everything it says on the tin

What about the kite reviews. Talk of tax and bars is very boring. What’s the kite like guys?

Re: Nexus 2 seems to be doing everything it says on the tin

Well I don’t have the nexus 2 but have the xr6 and I don’t like the s2pro bar I have so will be doing some testing with my ozone bars as soon as we have some higher winds to test it in. Will report back. I still suspect putting a high v on the bar is to limit range to sell more kites and ensure ther...

Re: Decathlon Orao Kite Surfboard anyone tried it?

More importantly and it could make a huge difference to the industry is what is the bar like and what does that cost? I think it’s great a big company is bringing prices back down to what a kite is worth rather than hugely inflated over value prices. Good stuff. :-) Kite actually looks quite nice to...

can you use the new quick release on a Sensor 2 bar?
Yes will they do an upgradable release?
I think core also keep the high y simply to make extra bar sales when most brands done away with that.

Re: What are your thoughts on this Vantage Kites kite/wing?

I think it shows that the potential for a kite-powered yacht is now possible. Kind of funny that companies working on this 15 years ago never came up with the concept of a super stable wing. Reel it out on one line (maybe with a bridle) and get steering and sheeting control once you have it up. Who...

Re: High Y bar on a 2020 pivot

Hi y can reduce range, increase power and make It more fidgety in the air and at the bar. Especially in gusty conditions. Have experience flying high y kites on low v bar as flew my bandits on an ozone bar loads and they flew way better especially in the smaller sizes. Up to 2018 kites anyway As swi...

Re: Core nexus or xr6

Pulled the trigger in an xr6 in the end. What setting in the cit bridle in the kite and wing tips is best for old school tricks and long slide tricks?
