Low V bar on 2018 and Newer Kites from North/Duotone

Postby Papiloko » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:28 am

I read in another forum that from 2018 you can fly North and now Duotone kites with low V Bar.

Is this true?

It was always possible, but it had a negative effect on the kite.
But maybe they meant that it's now possible to convert the duotone bar to a low V?

Interesting, I would also like to hear the outcomming. i just send an email to Duotone with the question.
I love a lower v, easier for self-land and more beautiful gopro shots from a line mount!

Answer from Duotone;

This is possible. Please note; the Rebel is developed for the high V so according to our specifications you have to leave it.
Of course it is always possible that you personally think that the Rebel is sailing better with a low V, so just try it.
