Feedback from a Friend who owned the v1 first ; he tested static on the beach , in very light wind :
- line length is ok out of the bag for standard bar ( previous one needed long pigtails on front lines)
- kite is stable
- turns slowly (light wind has certainly not helped ...)
- deflating zips still located in strange and quite non-logical locations

Out of the bag, testing 6 m 2019 model in about 20 knots:
-I found it turned fast enough
-Stable with the bar fully out (4-line equal length bar). (Still pulled very strongly, not de-powered at all. All 4 bridles were still visibly taught)

It would stall when pulling in the bar just a little (100 mm for example).

I added about 150 mm pigtails to the rear lines. It helped with the stalling.

Extended Z bridle by about 50 mm and C by 25 mm (by experimentation) to give a bit more de-power range. After this it flew and behaved very well in lightish wind (15 knots)

I found the problem with the front edge deforming only really happens in strong wind (20-25 knots). Haven't tested it with the new leading edge battens yet.

Great news! It seems Pansh have listened to the feedback and there is now 3m 4m 5m available also. I need to make a decision, what should I use for High wind Foiling?

Im 105kg on an Alpine foil access v2 with the xlp wing. I Find the 6m good to around 23 knots too much power then, maybe a 4m?

So how are your Genesis 2019 guys!? I recently kited in 17knots (12m version), and I was pleasantly surprised. I was most impressed with how stable it was, and better - how fast it spun for loops. My only gripe it doesn't go up wind quickly enough. It gets there but there is a fair bit of down-wind action before the apparent wind kicks in and then she rolls with the punches.

:?: :?: :?: 2017 12m Genesis I tuned for a friend was one of the slowest kites I've ever experienced. Very slow and soft kite. Is there some changes for 2019, I don't know but it looks same.
