I bought the 7 and 9 with the 52 Pinxto bar because what I’ve read fits exactly in my picture, wave and foil and minimalistic symplicity!
These kites are fast indeed, instead of taken my 9 Neo I take the 7 Kaup
It’s not really a sheet and go kite but this is a wild Stallion that wants to work, It generates a lot of speed if you trow it once or twice in a sinus, I love it!
In the waves: it turns on a dime real quick and agile with constant power but with the large depower you can easily trow all the power away an then it drifts like a feather in the wind.
This kite is quick and for the 7 I needed a 45 cm bar instead of my usual 52, I made a lot of timing mistakes with the 52 bar but I solved it with the more controllable 45 bar.
For Foil: yessss....constant power in the turn is what I noticed immediately, so easy and smooth, no sinus in the turn or after but just ride and glide
because of the lightness it drifts perfectly and smooth waiting for your next move, you can easily take a size smaller then you are used too.
For me (100kg) kiting since 2003 I love this powerfull kite, this is what I looked for, Foil and Wave and as a bonus it works for free-ride too! (Exactly as described on the website)
I don’t recommend this kite for an absolute beginner because of it’s liveliness and the generated speed.
The Pinxto: OMG was the first thing I thought, sooooo light
, indeed after some sessions with this Bar you only want light lighter lightst, the simplicity of the bar blows my mind, I have to say that you have to use the way you power and depower but with the large depower throw you hardly use the knotted power rope.
Thanks Rainer for this excellent product you create!
