ty all. SMJ why do u use B setting?
For small kites, I like the B setting to slow the kite down a bit and get more depower sooner with shorter bar throw. When you're on small kites, you're typically in high / gusty wind, so that fast depower comes in handy. For big kites, the B setting is too much bar pressure, but you hardly notice the bar pressure on small kites. Give the B setting a try on your smaller kites.
Here are some general guidelines for the A/B setting on Cab kites:
A setting kite turns quicker and creates less bar pressure
A setting kite will relaunch easier
B setting kite turns slower and creates more bar pressure
B setting more depower sooner, throw between power and depower is shorter
Most power, best boosting, and best hang time then set it on the B setting.
Fastest turning and lightest bar pressure then set in on the A setting.
A setting for surfboard and twintip. B setting can be hard at the bar on the mid-upper wind range and tires hands.
B setting for foiling for faster depower so don’t have to be fully sheeted out.
