I am still pretty new to foil kites and recently noticed my Hyperlink V2 wasn't behaving quite as well as it should in very light wind, I checked the Speed System and the C line was approximately 6cm shorter than the A & B. As Ozone don't have an adjustable system as standard is there anything to stop me from adding an extra bit of kite line to make them all equal again?
Sorry if this has been covered already, I did look but couldn't find this exact question answered.
You mean the backlines have considerable shrinkage. Lines do not stretch in the long run. If your backlines have shrunk that is more likely to be causing your backstall. Also if your C is really 6cm shorter than A the kite would be collapsing the tips like crazy and would barely fly.Richard81 wrote: ↑Wed May 06, 2020 10:25 amThanks for the replies, I will re-check them later. The front lines from the bar also had some serious stretch, could that contribute to the kite bridal stretching?
We have had a lot of southerlies recently which are very up and down, have resorted to leaving different boards on the beach and swapping them rather than changing kite. This has meant that I have been out on the 13m in winds gusting well over 20 knots... I am also 95kg which probably doesn't help.
