Questions on parts

Haven’t been on the site for a while. Noticed spare parts for bar is now limited to depower rope and leash. Are there any plans to make just chickenloop and just bar available?

Re: Helium 3

More video footage of kite in sky and water please. How is relaunch in super light wind? The one thing I love about the H2 was how great it relaunched in very light winds.

Re: Helium 3

The Helium 3 looks a lot like the latest Nitro with less struts and less aggressive tipped ends. I'm currently flying a 14 and 18m Cabrinha Velocity for light wind kiting, but the bar pressure has gotten old over the years. I have been contemplating a switch to the Cabrinha Contra, but this kite is...

Re: Helium 3

Topmick, jackoblondal is just reporting what he has, if you look at the Instagram post switch says 8kts. By the looks of the location (channel leading to open water)I wouldn’t doubt there is a little tide help. Having said that it would be awesome if switch made a 8kt kite.

Re: Nitro 6 with manufacturing mistake

GTalpo, sorry to hear this. Did you get the kites new? I had an issue with that took some time to resolve with Switch but ultimately they lived up to the terms. It took some back and forth but if you have all the evidence the customer service team will listen. Having said this photo1 and 3 make me s...

Re: Controller 4

Hi guys, What do you think about the Peter Lynn bar http://www.peterlynn.com/accessories/depower-control-gear/navigator-control-bar/ :roll: It’s basically BWS bar. They even use the same center line distributor. I think kite companies have come to the same conclusion there is only so much technolog...

Re: 7m for foilboard, Nitro or Element

Element. Yes the drift is better especially on foil if u wana go down wind. Being 3 struts vs 5 struts you save a little on weight, if in lighter winds it helps with launch and relaunch. I find with the nitro u almost have to hot launch in low wind conditions, but once in the air it's ok. I know u a...

Re: I hated the Nitro V2. How is the V5?

Wow GTC you had the opposite experience I had with the nitro V2. That was the kite that got me hooked to the nitro series. The bar pressure is definitely lighter on the V5, relaunch is better, high end is better, and the loop is a little tighter generates a little less power through the loop then V2.

Re: Bar availability?

I'm hoping the 15% still applies when stock becomes available again. I waited a week to see if the pro version would be out but then every version was out of stock.
