Nice video. A friend has one and the click in reload is nice. Like the tool less inter loop.

I noticed the lines are two pieces. Now I know why.

High quality equal length lines. Easy to replace. Are you listening duotone?

I think the left float should be red, and the outside lines are both green? Why not red on the left?

yes, would be a good orientation, while looking at the lines, swimming.

But sometimes just a thing of availiability (by suplier), for example liros which maybe it (at least pigtails are dpro I would think). Sometimes they run just short in high volumen of colors since years...

Possibly, but I ve only seen red and blue as stock colors so green was likely a special order. My guess is the large companies place their order well in advance and aren’t buying off the shelf stock. Otherwise you. Would have a variety of colors.

I believe it was a design decision.

I’ve had bars with all lines the same color.

Personally i prefer left and right rear lines different colors both on land, in the air, and in the water.

Anyone tried a North Carve for a jumping session?
I am getting more into strapless riding but would still like a kite with good boost
Although I understand the physics and how a wave kite sits further back in the window and thus doesn’t have the same lift
Just would like rider feedback if anyone has tried
Has anything to compare it to
Thanks

Carve jumps really good too.
