Armin Harich has video online where peak4 13m is connected directly to the bar. Though not a high wind on the video.
This is how I ride my Peak 4s, but in lighter winds and with with small windswell not really waves. I can't really speak to the Peak 5 or Hybrid, just my Peak 4 5m+6m. Here's a video I posted earlier in this thread:Regis-de-giens wrote: ↑Tue Sep 26, 2023 4:02 pmsimili sup-foil downwind (special but you could give your best guess):
- size 2.5 or 3 or 4m max , use on a wingfoil board , 60kg
- in about 20 knots , for freefly, so pure downwind
- kite as neutral as possible , and trying to reach a kind of auto-zenith : kite stable around the zenith without hands on the bar, but only punctual and minimum inputs of the pilot
in your opinion what are the pro and cos of those three kites on those special features ?
You wont get any auto zenith type behaviour but as long as the Peak 4 is seeing 3-4 knots of wind it will just hang out in the sky with minimal input.Slappysan wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2023 12:55 amIn this clip at 4:39 I'm riding straight downwind in around 9 knots of wind pumping the foil. Not sure how fast I'm going downwind but probably around 7 knots. You can see my hand isn't even on the bar and the kite is just hanging out chillin'. I am holding the top steering line in order to help make sure the kite stays in the air as well as ensure that bar is sheeted out so I get as little power from the kite as possible:
Peak5 2.5 is most stable in the zenith. Peak4 is almost as stable.
