What bar to use with Gin 12m spirit?

Postby windywave » Thu Sep 21, 2023 2:13 am

Hi I'm new to kiting. I have a 12m spirit from gin. Love the kite. I'm wondering what bar is good to use with it? I want a 55 cm bar with 17m lines if possible.

That sounds like an excellent choice. I have an Flysurfer Sonic 12m (similar kite) on a 56cm bar with 17m lines and it feels perfect.

You can find any possible combination of bar and lines at KiteAttitude.

for TT i use 22m lines and 55cm bar for 10,12m. for foiling 17m is fine. must say got me the Kiteattitude bars also but need to make the backlines about 10cm longer for perfect behaviour, got me an new Instinct HB 10m and needed to lengten the lines also. nevertheless, kites are awesome.
