Indeed it is mainly due to aspect ratio lower on the matrixx vs chrono. You should also get a similar feeling with FRS, Pulsion or hyperlink (aldo but moderate on Soul);
On the extreme opposite of very high ratios (race kites), you recover again and "strangely" a tight turn as well but due to a different turn mode which stalls the inner wing: loop is short but unpowered and needs a bit of lapse time to recover its powered crossing the window, which is why I prefer modefate ratios in very light wind (on top of better stability and relaunch of moderate ratios)
