Question for xr5-6 users. I’m going to buy a 12m for tt riding but was curious how it does on the foil? How light of wind have you been able to foil on the 12m xr5-6? I’m 215lbs. Thanks

Its bad for foiling because 5 ribs dont hold well in lulls and drift is bad on it. In 5m/s its not very responsive and may fall. Look for something with 3 or less struts.

I just got off of the XR's for the new North Reach. XR's set to far forward so they don't drift and that makes it harder to go down wind. They are heavy and do like to fall out of the sky in the lightest of winds. Can you foil with them yes is it the most ideal kite to use no.

Pulled the trigger in an xr6 in the end. What setting in the cit bridle in the kite and wing tips is best for old school tricks and long slide tricks?
Recently purchased XRs 9 & 12m with Sensor 2S pro bar for TT kiting only. Had 4 sessions on the 9m changed the factory freeride settings to wave (closer to ctr of kite) & to Super easy (fastest turning speed) closer to tip for steering lines. Tried it on 22m but preferred 24m more recovery time in transitions. Overall the kite felt smoother less grunty. Very impressed with the stability of the kite through gusts, great top end, jumping & hang time. Although the kite does not drift as well as a wave kite however due to the large depower range it's okay to wave ride on our choppy waves.

I tried the freestyle setting on the XR6 12m. I cound't feel any improvement vs freeride one. The only thing I apreciated is that it seem that the kite was more easly "choked" ( it was on the low wind range)
