Re: Nitro or Element?

I'm using Nitro 6 12m for lighter winds to get higher jumps and go up wind easily. I decided to give another shot to the Element (had the E4 11m which wasn't great for advanced riders) and got the E6 at 9m for stronger winds, hoping to get easier landings in such conditions :) I had one light wind s...

Re: Controller 4

I received my C4X a few days ago and it feels very nice and light. I wish I have read this thread before ordering, as just when I took it out of the box I got disappointed with the overall length of the bar. DSC_9435.JPG I understand that the measurement is between the line attachment points, but th...

Re: Strange strings holding the one pump system

It's not really necessary to put it back... you can use the silicone inclune in the repair kit. It's not possible to put back anyway :) The question stays as to why Switch are using it at first place. Just as an example - when you repair something in your car, all the parts should fit to their orig...

Re: Strange strings holding the one pump system

You just pull the end of this small rope, and it unties easily. Switch doesn't include this as part of their instructions nor as a replacement part, i know that this is a bit silly, but there is a huge difference in the force that you need to put on the hose when it has this tie and when it only use...

Strange strings holding the one pump system

I have to replace the main bladder on my Nintro4, and saw those strange strings holding the one pump system. Clearly, you can't really put it back after removing it, so why does switch add it during manufacturing? The 2 plastic bushings doesn't hold so well, with a bit of force the hose can pop out....

Re: element vs nitro wind range

Compared to light bar pressure kites - bandits (from the past ~4 years) / naish park 2013 that I owned for a few weeks. I don't think that the Nitro (V4) can be called as a light bar pressure kite. Although I usually ride it well powered as the wind range is just sick! Way more wind range compared t...

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE FROM SWITCH IN THE FUTURE

I would like to see Switch develop and offer a better front line swivel for contoller 2 bar. The existing one for the most part doesn't function correctly... even after drill/spin, silicone lubricant and being supplied a replacement swivel it seems the inherent design is lacking. A ceramic bearing ...
