Would you mind explaining what is better with the XS and how the handling compares? I am considering both Orbit 21 and XS will hopefully get a chance to try both.Saltyman wrote: ↑Tue Oct 06, 2020 8:52 amI've ridden the orbit which is pimped to death on this forum by sponsored riders retailers etc.
The XS kicks it's ass for hooked in big air without a doubt. Has way better wind range.
And is not pimped it's performance speaks for itself.
Orbit is better at unhooking but just get a specific freestyle kite if that's your thing.
That's my opinion.
Flame away north rep riders etc.

15-25knt 12m RS
20-35knt 9m RS
30knt+ 7m Best GP
I have a 9m GP also. I dont really ride it anymore.
Which eleveight kite to replace my 7m GP? 7m XS, 6m or 7m RS or an FS? I want the biggest wind range for when my 9m is too much (it's rare here tbh, 90% of my sessions are on the 9m). What would you want to be on in 40-50knt?
The 7m GP seems to have unlimited range. I had it out in 55-65knt last year comfortably (I dont think I will kite above 40knt base anymore though). The trouble is the kites are getting old, the 9m already had valve issues and the 7m will start misbehaving. The new RS kites are an absolute dream- I dont want to be beaten up by hybrid Cs anymore.
