Trim Ozone Hyperlink

Hi folks,

I've just been riding and still have the issue that I have to steer way more up if I go to right compare to the left.
For foil tack it feels the same way.

If I center the Kite there is no tendency to one side also double check the lines from the bar.

I've also downloaded the bridle chart but there isn't anything big as far I can tell.

Does anyone have this issue? The Soul got a trim option does the Hyperlink have at least a little option to adjust?

The Kite isn't actually old :-?

Does it fly true with the bar sheeted in and also depowered?

If you fly in light winds on the beach, does it turn the same right and left? Both powered and depowered?

If you look at the leading edge of the kite in the sky, is it symmetric, or does one side dimple more?


Are you stronger on one side?


I like to anchor all 4 bridle ends even at one point. Then under equal tension test the right and left side of the bridle at the kite for each pair of lines.

Are your line lengths equal?

Unstraight flight can be fixed. What you describe is a bit strange because it should have a tendency to go to one side at 12. Maybe it is the rear lines? I have described the process to straighten a kite out before, try search. The process is basically locate and eliminate asymmetry in the order of front lines then mixer end points in order A B C then Z, then even bridles left to right in same order. If all that doesn't work sew camber into a side of the kite.

Check the lines again at the 12m and 9m. Also when I pulled the bar. And the tendency to one side was even more. Therefore I check the length again and there was indeed a cm difference. Will fly again next weekend and keep you updated.

Thanks folks

Are both kites doing this? If not, swap bars/lines and see if the same thing occurs on the other non-affected kite.
