Re: Helium 3

I have the H3 12m and finding it tricky to handle gusts and upper wind range. Winds were 17/21kn. 82Kg. Strapless. 23m likes calibrated. Kite pumped to 8psi. Standard bridle attachments. When I would get a gust I would feel the bars quite heavy. A couple of inches throw and the kite canopy flutters ...

Re: Helium 3

Hey Felix, I thought the H3 10m was your go-to kite and that that size has the best range ?

Think I'll be keen on a 9 + 12m combo of H3 for SB & foil if that's not too much of a gap.

Re: Helium 3

I'm leaning towards the 12m.

Felix, how does the 12m turn compared to E3 11m please ? Is it more responsive ?

Re: Helium 3

I can't decide either, I'd like to have a go on a 12m to see how fast it is and how well it depowers. The Airush foil I am riding will not foil until I reach a critical speed, which is probably around 10 knots. I suspect the answer for me is going to be 12m will be easier to get on to the foil but ...

Re: Helium 3

Thanks for the extensive reviews SimonP !

Now you're making it even harder for me to choose between 10m / 12m :lol:

Re: Helium 3

At 80kg I am hesitating between 10m and 12m H3 as my wave & foil kite. Currently my biggest kite is the E5 11m which is too heavy for lightwind foiling under 15kn but it's my go to kite for powered up wave sessions below 21kn (Firewire Vader 5"1 & Nugget). Felix mentioned the 10m would suit best if ...

Re: Helium 3

8 knots is a myth.... You need at least 10 even on a door with an 18m.

Re: Switch Element V6

Thanks - I use my E5 11m as my light wind kite for strapless & foil. However the kite is a tad too heavy once the wind is below 15kn and drops out.

Undecided on whether to get an E612m, wait for the Helium 3 12m, Ozone REO 12m or BRM Cloud D 12m... The E6 may still be too heavy ?
