Re: Element vs Nitro projected area and bigger booster

Dude, obviously a larger AR means nothing specially when the AR of the NITRO completely changes from being larger than the Element to less than the Element from the perspective of being laid out flat to blown up.

Element vs Nitro projected area and bigger booster

I'm considering a 12m Element/Nitro as others are. I like big air and just enough kiteloop speed to do landing loops, hand drags, etc. The Nitro has less chord length and more flat area when laid out....BUT when pumped up(when it really matters) the ELEMENT wins in every going big category.

The line wore out rather quickly, but has remained as is for a while now, but I think it'...

Controller 2 - worn flagout and slack load lines

Hey All! I've got a couple problems with the Controller 2 I bought 6 months ago. I ride once a week and just mow lawns for now, so the bar hasn't been stressed too much. First, my hole in the single line flagout is so small that it has worn out the flag out line a little. Do you think by the looks o...
