Hi Kitesurfing friends there!

I need your help.
I have an F-One Mach1 12.1.
The problem is that when I want the kite to be fully powered, and pull down the bar, after a certain point I can "over-power" my kite which means that after that point power goes out of the kite, just like when I push the bar away from me...
Has anybody encountered such behaviour? What should I do? Where should I re-adjust my kite?
Now I have factory settings on..
I would like to achieve to have full power, when the bar is totally pulled in.

PLease help me...

Thanx, From Hungary

if you want this, you gotta make the backlines longer.

tubekites get slower when sheeted in.
slower kite - less power.

if you gotta fly the ite up & down to keep on riding try to sheet out while flying upwards and sheet in when flying downwards.

Thanx Murdoc!

I will make those backlines longer. Hope it won't affect other behaviours of the kite. It does worth a try

Thank You... the weekend we will have wind for it thanx :smile:

This problem is normal with many kites. Just move the knots on your leader lines to correct the kite trim. Most of us move the knots to get the kite trim we like. Some people like their kite trimmed the way yours is now.
