What is it the "inner setting" ?DIALS wrote: ↑Thu Oct 31, 2019 10:04 amI like to fly my 12m on the wider bar with 24m lines in lighter winds and anything under 10m I like to use the smaller bar with 22m lines...If you could get the wider bar in 24m lines and use the outer setting for the 12m and the inner setting for the 9 then that will work...The smaller bar in 22m lines will work too but the 12m will be slower to turn with that but been 22m lines it kinda makes up for the turn speed loss...so both bars will work..Trust bars that is..The click is way too expensive IMO..
No. A kite does not turn slower or faster when you extend or shorten lines. Why do people keep saying that? And also, why are you talking about turning speed when SaarM clearly wrote that he is into freeride and big jumps?

The shorter the lines, the smaller the window, which equates to less potential power generation, less jumping ability, faster steering (but not faster turning!!), tighter kiteloops and more responsive handling. The longer your lines, the larger your wind window, which equates to more potential power generation, higher possible airs and slower, less responsive handling.
That's why you want to go with 24m lines if you want to do freeride and jumping. I also have an EVO in 12 and a Neo in 9 and for TT, I always use 24M on the clickbar. It does make a difference, especially on the 12M. When I am going into the waves with a surfboard with the NEO, I am switching to 22M.
