Hn,

Due to broken shoulders i was wondering what wave kite 2014 or newer has the lightest bar pressure and force needed to turn the kite?

Thanks!

Try a Best Cabo. Not much bar pressure, turns quick. Drifts well. Not much low end.

I think I tired every single wave kite in the mkt.
rrd religion, ozone Reo, naish park, north neo, bws and cab drifters.
If you want a super light bar pressure and the ability to ride with one hand the best kite is Naish Park. Hands down. Nothing come close. It's not the best drifter but in terms of quick turning and light bar pressure is amazing.

Bar pressure in my "2012" reo gets heavier as the windier it gets.

Consider the Epic Surf kite. Wave dedicated and has received some great nods.

I'll take your word for that...I have not tried the new GT3 yet, but I know the older GT had a bit of bar pressure, And yes, I have heard lots of good things about the GTS3. I would like a 7m and 10m!!

Hi OMG,

You should give our Peter Lynn Swell kites a try.

Low Bar pressure and super tight and quick turning.
