inflatable kite

Postby narlin » Sun Sep 06, 2020 8:43 pm

hej,

I have been kiting (land, snow) for many years with foil kites (flysurfer psycho3 10 mainly) but now Im looking out for a new kite. I'm eager to buy an inflatable kite as a complement to my foil kites. im looking for a stable kite (good gust handling) with lots of depower and good lift. I have been looking at flysurfer Boost 3/stoke 2 and ozone edge v10 but it is hard to make a comparison since my only refernce point is foil kites (FS psycho3 10m). Any suggestions/insights?

Thanks!

How much is your weight and in which wind you like to ride this tubes?
Only on land and snow or also on water?
I love my Flysurfer Boost ‘s!

Sorry I don’t have info on the kites you mention but when I choose a kites for land it’s looping characteristics is important to me. Might be worth a mention if you particularly want pivoty or open and powerful loops.

Also you have kites lightly built with less struts that hang in the air well compared to heavily built 5 or 6 strut machines that are very stable, as well as the obvious choice of high or low aspect ratio.

hej,

Thanks!
I usually kite in 10-20 knots. I intend to use it both on snow and water, freeriding. I'm approx 75 kg.
Are all inflatable kites suitable for colder temperatures (< -10C)? The materials should not become too brittle (like PU coated depower lines).

In my area lots of people ride inflatable kites in winter (snow, ice) -- whatever kites people use in summer on water, the same kites they use in winter. I have not heard of any problems with kites under -10C. I rather have had problems with the chickenloop stick that becomes brittle and sometimes breaks.
