F-One markets the Halo as an all surface kite (snow/land/water) not just foil but you are right I would have preferred also a 6m rather than a 19m as I see no sense in such large kites for freeriding.Adventure Logs wrote: ↑Tue Apr 02, 2019 10:39 pmInteresting, always good to have more competition. I personally think that having ozone in the foil industry lit a fire under Flysurfers ass which resulted in some awesome performance foils. I kinda always thought that FS played it too safe before that.
For the Halo, would really love to try it. It’s hard for me to grasp though that for a foil kite that Fone claims is 100% foil, why not make anything smaller than a 8m? The trend seems like bigger foil wings with smaller kites, why not at least a 6m if not smaller like the Nova doesn’t make sense to me. I hope the next gen kite from FS, we will see something smaller than a 6m.
It is really strange to dare list such an overall ordered list with so few information , not having tested all competitors on your side ... and are you talking about wind range, or stability, or boost, or hangtime, or drift, or plug&Play, or low end ? Come-on, one kite is not above other for all riders ; it would be more useful for readers to segregate your opinion on pro and cons of each ones. And this definitelly cannot be done by looking just at the cells number and briddle architecture, even if you have a long-lasting interest in deep analyses the briddle system. What about the weight, the arch, the camber, the wing local AoA, reflex profile, ect ?
