Basic principle of leverage . Maybe the guys at DT should try flying a kite on a 20cm bar to see if the kite turns at allfoilholio wrote: ↑Tue Aug 28, 2018 4:47 amIs Ralf the idiot or are you? It is getting hard to tell at this point.
Let me state a few simple FACTs.
Turn speed relates to the AMOUNT of a rear line pulled, the more a rear line is pulled the faster a kite turns.
A larger bar pulls more of a rear line.
Therefore a larger bar makes a kite turn faster.
Now there is some conditions I could throw in there, but I am trying to expand it and also keep it simple so your brain can digest it. Or maybe like Ken or Ralph I just need to write pages and pages littered with rubbish and you will swallow it whole? Somewhere someone is laughing about this, hopefully it's not Ken or Ralph, because that would be quite sick. I tend to think of them as a bit stupid rather than evil.
Then why do they argue against foil kites so much? Your statement is in contradiction of the facts. If they really care about performance they would have foil kites. They don't so they either don't care for performance or don't understand it (stupid).Dan-at-Duotone wrote: Both Ralf and Ken have strong feelings about how to get the utmost performance from a kite
And what is this story about bars being compatible back to 2005? So are 95% of the bars on the market.
