Naish Pivot 7/9 or 8/10

Postby KiterNF » Sun Feb 10, 2019 1:06 pm

Hi,

I‘m going to add two more Pivots to my quiver. Currently I’m round about 200lbs.

In lighter winds <20 mph I‘m using my Directional with a 12m Pivot. Above I‘m driving a Twintip und like to do Jumping and Looping. Therefore I‘m thinking if it would be better to buy 10/8 or 9/7 for Wind between 20 and 40 mph.

Thanks for your Input and Feedback

As you already have the 12m I would go for 9/7 to have a nice coverage for all winds and good gaps between the sizes. I am 73 kg and I ride 11m/8m Pivot. Below that 7/5 Slash, because it is a little less powerful. If it was for a Pivot to add another smaller kite I would go for 6m, which I had before the Slash came out.

I'm around 190 lbs and ride 7 and 9m Pivots, and just got a 11m, but yet to ride it as I am currently in Cape Town and it would be useless most of the time here. I love my 7m Pivot, which can handle ridiculous wind strengths, like today, see graph.
