Hi, I had the same experience with the peak4 11m.... Not convinced with this kite (but happy with my 3m&5m) so, I sold it and bought a pulsion 12m. The wind range is wider, but the better advantage is the easy handling, power spike and not lossing shape on slack lines.
And to keep the speed, and make perfect transitions but at all it's really exciting (for me at least).
Absolutely. Took me years of training and a lot of experiments with gear and trim to get down to beeing able to ride at 5 knots.
No, not true. At least not in low wind conditions, and that is what we talk about here. I switch from my 10m LEI (single strut) to 12m foil kite at ~7 knots, when it get more and more difficult to relauch the LEI. I can still ride the LEI, but cannot relaunch quickly but needs a lot of work. The 12m foil kite (Using Pansh Hawk) will relaunch much easier.IWantToFly wrote: Sure, the LEI will relaunch better than a foil kite in most conditions,
relaunch in low wind of a freeride foilkite, whatever the brand, is far better in low wind than any model of aluula or single strut or strut less ; by far ; in 5-8 knots , foilkite relaunch systematically in most configuration while pumped kite will never relaunch...
