I have used the 12 hyperlink and owned the 13 and 15mtr ozone chronos ultra lights V3sArcher77 wrote: ↑Wed May 06, 2020 2:46 pmHey guys!
Someone has had the possibility to try both these kites?
I ride on twintip, 80 Kg, I have a Zephyr V5 but under 12 kn to 8 with a 141*44 twintip I can't go upwind, in the best situations I can take the position without loose water
(Now I have bought a Bronq XL 148/47 and still have to use it, probably the situation will be slightly better I imagine)
The point is:
With the Hyperlink will I get better upwind angles than the Zephyr(cause the fact that foil kite have more forward position in the wind window)? will be noticeable or slightly better angles, I mean will worth the change?
In this case, the Hyperlink V2 11m will be enough or I should for sure go for the 13m ?
Generally speaking, the change will be worth it(from LEI to (easy) Foil)?
thank you all!
He already *has* the 17m Zephyr, which he's not happy and he's considering going for foilkite 11/13m hyperlink if it works better for him at maintaining ground and ride, did you read the OP? Or other alternative is to upgrade Zephyr from V5 to V6?
Thats a load of BS my friend, try modern foil kite again. In low wind getting 17m LEI kite from water is a challenge in itselfkitexpert wrote: ↑Thu May 07, 2020 11:40 amOn TT 15m usual foil kite is not that much better if at all better compared to 17m LEI. I've tested back to back with 15m Speed/17m LEI. Race kites are of course more efficient, and on ice/snow for example 15m Speed will go higher upwind than most 17m LEI's. Some very efficient high AR LEI's (Airush VXR, RRD Addiction, Ozone Edge) can get close to equal though. However 17m LEI is faster and more reactive than 15m Speed so ride itself is better. Keeping LEI flying is an issue only in so light winds using TT is not reasonable (8kn or below).
Hyperlink 11/13 is certainly not giving any power advantage to 17m LEI (even though Zephyr is one of the weakest big LEI's). With a bit bigger board I've had good sessions with 17m LEI without white caps, but not always. If you don't see any white caps TT riding is usually a challenge (for normal weight rider).
No BS there
