Re: Switch Element V6

it depends on what you want to do. At 65kg I ride my 10m until 33-34 knots, quite a workout holding it down though.
Ride whatever that fits your riding styles and makes you comfortable

Re: Switch Element V6

This Element v6 kite is like not even on the same platform and shares no DNA with Element V5, might as well call it something else.

Re: Kite Confusion: 13m Element vs 12m Nitro vs. 15.5m Heliu

Haven't ridden the Element but both Nitro and Legacy you can hold an unreal amount of wind by edging hard or toeside charging toward the kite - they are not good drifters so it dumps all the power. They work extremely well in super gusty conditions when you want to rig towards the big lulls and ride...

Re: The Legacy is Amazing.

looking for legacy 10m

V1 or V2, please let me know the condition and how much you want, shipped to Oregon USA. Don't need the bar but a bag is nice.
Also have a Nitro V4 10m or 14m to trade + some cash if needed.

Thanks!

Re: Nitro 5 (14 m2) how to avoid hindenburging?

my v4 does this quite a bit when i'm not careful. You gotta keep kite moving at all times, and never keep it above you at 12 in threshold winds. Don't shorten back line too much otherwise you may backstall the kite.
