Ozone Edge V9 vibration

Postby Kitemanmuc » Sat Jul 08, 2017 3:29 am

Had my first go on the Edge V9 today properly. First the 11m then the 9m. Yes, this thing goes to the moon. Also surprised at how fast the 9 is.
I had one issue with both of them. Lots of vibration in the bar. It came from fluttering in the canopy between the tip of the leading and the first batten on the trailing edge. It flutters so hard when i send the kite forward it really vibrates the lines so much it runs all the way down to the bar. Once the kite is parked again, its smooth like button. Has any one else experience this? New to the Edge, so im not sure if thats normal.

I used only ones my 13m and I noticed that when depowered the closer batten to the tip move a lot. First think passed thru my mind is: nice wear and tear.... maybe I will have to patch it up one day.
But I do not care since the edge is a really great kite and I will enjoy it even with a patch
In general no vibration what so ever on the bar, however it was a light wind session.

It might help to know where you're coming from? What were you using before getting the Edges? Maybe you are simply not used to having that much of bar feedback?

I rode the 7m V9 Edge for the fist time 2 days ago very overpowered and had no bar vibrations at all. But really high long jumps!
