Cab drifter vs moto

Postby richieski » Fri Sep 23, 2022 8:23 am

Really would like indépendant reviews on the 2021 kites
60 foil 40 strapless freestyle

V1 reviews of Moto not good.
How do they compare to the Neo which I'm currently using.

Many thanks .

Drifter: very little pull at 12, drifts a bit more than moto.

Moto: almost same handling as the drifter, a bit more nimble, way more pull at 12, has way more hangtime and boosting.

Neo: have tried and did not like it. Too heavy bar pressure for wave imo. Grunt as hell. Good drift.

I only have a 2020 Drifter but I find it's pull to be weak for it's size, I actually consider it a size lower than it is. I also find the bar pressure on it on the heavy side, especially in the wave setting. It loops very well though and while it's heavy compared to 1-strut kites the balance of the kite is really well done such that you can keep it in the air below what most 3-strut kites can handle.

I would look to the Contra 1-strut personally.

I went from the 8M Drifter to an 8M Contra 1-Strut for foiling and it was a game changer for me - Lighter, more agile, better drift, more power, and just an all around better feel in the air.
