Gaastra (GA) One single-strut opinions?

Postby PPZ » Sun May 05, 2019 3:26 pm

Gaastra's single-strut kite is in the second generation now, but I can't seem to find any reviews of the kite.
Seems to be even lighter than the Airush Ultra.
Could anyone share reviews, experiences and general opinions?

Hi, I am about to buy the 2019 model in the 14m variant 👍 I have been looking for reviews but nothing to be seen. I use all Gaastra gear at the moment. Their customer service is great if that helps and very happy with them.

I managed to find one article in german on a german magazine (https://www.kitemagazin.de/)

Link to the article: https://wetransfer.com/downloads/90c229 ... 157/2bc176

Not sure about reliability/bias though

Any review on the One from gaastra?. How it it in the hi end. ? I thinking about getting a 14 also but I'm afraid that i has poor depower and overpower quickly as in the spark.

Just seeing this now....

I have the GA One 2 years now.... Build quality is great as is every Gaastra Kite. Low end is superb. It will stay in the air at 7 knots and has plenty of grunt. High-end isn't great although it does have decent depower compared to my old Gaastra Pures 👎 it is a lot to handle.

I rarely use it nowadays because I foil mainly..... From 10knots I am on my 9m but I wouldn't sell it as it is a session saver.
