Water re-launch in 7 knots doesn't look very promissing, but pretty much all LEI kites wont relaunch in 7 knots either.

Question for Armin,

Hi Armin,
me and my family very enjoy Peaks 4 right now on snow and hope soon also on Fuerte hydrofoiling. We are very pleased with kite. It has all Peaks forgiveness + much more performance.
I think turning speed is comparable with LEIs. Peak 5 is now quicker turning than 7m wave LEI - and power is comparable. So :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

Question is - Im using my custom carbon bar with open V on front lines. Your new peak bar uses Y front line setup. With LEIs this is usually problem when kite is designed for Y it doesnt fly well on V.
Before I experiment - should I expect behavior change V vs Y front lines. I suspect that it doesnt matter because shape is mostly given by bridle but im asking anyway. :D

many thanks!

Tomas

tomtom, did you get 11m? It would be great to hear the feedback on the 11m for foiling.

No I get 5 - and 4 - I was about get 5 and 3 but after trying 4 against my wave LEI 7 - i was afraid of too much gap for HF - 4 is already very small kite. I was buying after reading Horst mini review and than i realized that im much heavier than him at 90 kg. Im going to Fuerte at the end of february. So far i have couple of snowkiting session and they are very good. They are so different from previous peaks - in good way... About 11 in LW - i think that is closed cell territory. I have very good closed cell which relaunch in 6 knots - but who knows... I think single skin are best ridden so you never exceed wind speed in downwind direction - so in mid to stronger wind.
