Anyone has seen or tried these kites? Good price, low weight, almost single strut, nice clean bar.

Hey,
Yep, I testet the 7m two days ago include the carbon bar, I can tell you that's are awesome kites!
Great drift, great stability, and awesome depower, if you let the bar go the kite is completely dead and you can ride the wave! I tested the kite with my Moses Onda and it is an amazing kite for riding waves with a foil. Can't tell you something about the performance with a surfboard so far but with a foil it's perfect. The 7m maverick is 650g lighter than my 7m drifter. I mean it's nothing for race for sure, but if you looking for a freeride freestyle foiling kite you need to tested?
The prices from Kauper-XT are really interesting too

^ Hmm just registered and you tell us it is an awesome kite .. :D

The bar looks good, simple and light. Swivel is missing?
We will see how durable the kite is in real life use.

The bar is interesting. I don't like all the extensions. Messy. Would like some longer single line options.

Hi guys,

this is Rainer from Kauper XT.
You know me as founder of Spleene and inventor of the Door and Zone board.
Since last summer I am not with Spleene anymore and have now setup my new brand Kauper XT.
All info to Kauper XT you can see on my new website.
If you have any questions or suggestions I would be happy to get in touch with you.
Please do not be angry with me if my reply takes a while as I am also writing all posts at the German Forum oase.com myself.
But I am going to try to serve all wanted info asap.

I hope you like my new brand as well as the Maverick kite and the Pintxo bar.

Thanks

Ciao

Rainer Kauper

I inquired today and was told that, unfortunately, they are not shipping to the US (the bar looks fabulous to me). Rainer, please change your mind and ship across the Atlantic!

If you buy it with the Wichard release - then it has a swivel.

Hi,

we are currently checking the possibility to ship to the US. I will let you know soon.

Regarding safety at the Pintxo bar system you can be sure that I put my focus 100% on that.
For me safety is really important as I do NOT want to hurt myself, but the system is different to most other bars on the market.
You do not need a safety-leash any more. It´s integrated in the QR.
Please read my explanations on the Kauper XT website and you will understand how it works and discover the advantages.
Only checking pictures might not be enough to understand it.
The same with the integrated adjuster. Please check also the video on the website.

Ciao
