Re: Helium 3

After owning a quiver of Heliums since they came out I have to say they are holding up quite well. I was skeptical that the lighter construction would cause failure issues but they are still 100% in tact. Treating them the same as any other kite I've owned,

Re: just got my new nitro 5

Check the bar dude. Mine turned great depowered. Also might be a muscle memory thing from your old kite. 10M should turn fast...

Re: Controller 4 - how to calibrate lines

There is also the old school way. Connect all 4 lines to a anchor point. I use a tree with a rope around it and connect lines to a little strong carabeaner. If one line is shorter that the rest than pull super hard on it till its the same lenth. If one is shorter than all than yank pther lines until...

Re: Best Helium 3 size for light wind relaunch?

I' ve got a simular quiver with 10m instead of 9m. For sure the 7M will launch the easiest for reasons you described. Although no kite will relaunch if the wind is too light. Here are some tips I use when riding in marginal wind. Always keep tension in your lines and save the kite at all costs. If t...

Re: 12m low end - differences between Helium and Element (and Nitro)

Yeah GTC My 12 M Element v6 was awesome. Fastest 12 Ive ever had(besides the Helium). Went upwind great and was butter smooth. Try flying it way depowered. I always add another knot on the trailing edge pigtail to get more depower. Def check your bar.

Re: 12m low end - differences between Helium and Element (and Nitro)

I have a 12 Helium and had a 12 Element. It really comes down to what you want to do. If you twin tip than Element for sure. Surf and foil than Helium. They both have great low end. The helium is def lighter. The Element has a smoother powerband than the Helium. hence it being a beginner -expert kit...
