Pansh A15 ultralight in 15m2

Postby Tomlutz » Thu Aug 15, 2019 11:27 am

I have ordered the Pansh A15 ultralight in 15m2 and just received the package. To my surprise it weighs 2700 gr, I expected the ultralight version to weigh 2050 gr. Has someone the ultralight version and can tell me the weight? I have contacted Pansh and they responded within hours: they claim that the standard cloth weighs 4 kg, so 2700 gr for the ultralight would be correct.

Sounds like standard, they stated originally 2.8kg for 15m standard. My standard 18m was 3.56kg new, I think it would be down to about 3.5 or 3.45 now after mods.

2050 is too heavy to the UL version (this is approx the weight of a pulsion, while Aurora is significantly heavier).
Edit: i have recovered the weight i measured for the aurora 15m UL: 2700 gr as well .

I found the standard weight elsewhere 3.05kg. Would be nice if ultralight was less. There is my mod which will save weight and improve the kite else wise.

Well I tested it yesterday in very low winds, 5-8 knots. And I was quite happy. Exactly what I needed between my Souls 12 and 21: develops power in a less explosive way as my Souls, which is very good for a big and slow front wing and my little experience in foiling.

It stays in the air just like the Souls down to 6 knots, which is ok for me at the moment as I am not experienced enough to foil below 6 knots, and anyway on my homespot I have to drift launch and below 6 knots this would be a pain.

Nevertheless I am considering a Concept Air Pulsion that claims to stay in the air below 6 knots, being lighter than the Pansh / Souls.

Yes. I tested Aurora 2 15m UL and owned a pansh a15 UL. Pulsion stays at the zenith in less wind in 32gr and even more in 27, static and also when worked around the zenith.

And from what I saw on the beach, same comparison with the soul.
