I had a flysufer go down in the surf on a holiday and had 8 LCL break and I had my spare part kit with me and I was up and riding the kite the next day . If I ever had to do any bridle work I would put on lcl on a kite that doesn't have them as I have lots of them from old flysurfers kites ive owned .

It is nice manufacturers like Flysurfer include adjustments. But it is actually quite easy to just add a few pigtails which you can adjust. A lone adjustment for Z is I find far superior to the Flysurfer method anyway.

Exactly.

The concept of the LCL as a fuse is very good. Having a simple tiny part break vs a bridle or worse, is much better. Flysurfer learnt this early on when kites literally exploded. Attachments would rip out and shred the kite into pieces. Failures could cascade into many bridles breaking.

I have found LCLs breaking in waves then saving kites from damage to the fabric many times. It is easy enough to carry spares to the beach, on you or even on the kite.

I will add that when Flysurfer switched to the stronger Pink LCLs they would tend to allow more damage to the kite or bridle. And as bridles get older they can get a lot weaker and will break before the LCL.

They are a great invention and it is stupid other brands don't use them.

Speed : f*** ! this kite is Fast (unexpected !!) ... I reach speed over 38 knot on reaching, and made it several time !!
Here one of the track : http://www.sportstracklive.com/track/de ... pe/2540618
That is disappointing. While I understand most want a fast kite, IMO this style kite should be slow. I'd like a small kite for high wind, nice and slow on the foil.

Kitech is coming along with a 6 and 4m kites that have been redesigned to not be very fast.

Don't confuse straight line speed with an uncontrollable kite.

I found the 4m very playful and predictable with good feedback on the bar. Extremely fun to carve, loop and freeride with. Can't wait to ride it again!

Compared to a tube kite the smoothness is a pure joy as tubes wobble all over the place, feel very on-off and direct every gust and wobble into the bar and rider where the nova just hangs there and only moves and delivers power when you want.

Wow ! Don't expected all this answers ..

Yes there is not LCL ... But like a lot of brand isn't it ?

Gonna send you the speed system picture to avoid lot of missunderstanding ...

And last.. yes i reach 38knot, but i'm Fast by the way... on Chubanga.. don't think you can reach this kind of speed with other foil lol... but kite has a lot of depower... i just ride it full speed in the highwindrange to get that speed...

Is it just me or does that look like a blatant copy of a Hyperlink??
Ha ha you could say the same about most kites/products targeting the same market.
Consider the Hyperlink against the HQ Matrixx which came out in the first edition in, I think 2011 - maybe even 2010. Long before the Hyperlink. The below is version 3 from 2017 but HQ pretty much had that marked to themselves for 6-7 years after Flysurfer pulled the Psycho. For 2019 it has been discontinued and replaced by a new model complete with removable air intakes :lol:

If comparisons are done with the Hyperlink ,it really should be with the v2 as HL v1 no longer in production

On all the Sonics I've had, never had an LCL break, just bridle lines, but usually those lines that did break were cut by ice shards so LCLs wouldn't help there. Looks like a fun kite but they need a 15 / 18 size.

Hey ! Kite is adjustable !! it's not a "Splice speed system" like VMG or sonic race, but adjustable by knots that you can remove and made it again up and down
