Re: Nitro on shorter lines?

Good tips. Im not very good at kite looping, still learning. Send the video please. Im sure my technique needs improvement!. I guess my point is that on the Nitro I hurt myself and on at least 5 other brands I nail it (using the same technique). So my conclusion is that I either need to adapt and im...

Nitro on shorter lines?

Hey, has anyone flown the Nitro 5 and 6 on 22m or 20m lines? I have the 10m N5 and 12m N6 and Im finding the kiteloops are really slow and dont catch me even when I fishpoll the bar. I have to initiate the loop 1-2 seconds earlier than normal. I flew the Dice, Fx, Bandit and Vegas all back to back w...

Re: Foil Kite - R1/Chrono/Diablo/Elite/Sonic/Elf/Paravis/Ace

I have a foil board and 18m H2. At 5 knots im cruising. At 12 knots im fully depowered and heading for shore. I have no need for a foil kite when i can already go at 5 knots... Threshold winds are dodgy and ive had to park the H2 for a while in the ocean whilst waiting for the wind to return. Cant d...

Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

Thanks for the response. I think we are saying similar things. I can mow grass in as low as 12 knots too on the 14m but I need 14 knots minimum to start doing tricks and 15-16 knots if i want to loop it.

Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

Macster, I have the v5 Nitro 14m too and I love it.

Challenging light end of it's range but still pulling my 100KG around no problem. Wh...

Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

Had the chance to fly the 14m N5 and N6 back to back last weekend. N6 definitely loops and turns better and has lighter bar pressure. The N6 has slightly less low end and grunt but this is deceptive and feels worse than it really is cause of the lighter bar pressure. I also found the N6 wanted to si...
