Re: Why you shouldn't buy a switch kite anymore

I bring it up because the mentioning of price. You outsource and buy designs to save money. You cut down on warehousing and tax handling to save money. You get rid of a lot of the staff to save money. And somehow the kites got more expensive, almost to the point where you can just walk into a shop ...

Re: Helium 3

Thanks Jakob,
I'm 175lbs I can kite with the Nitro 5 16m in 10mph -20 mph wind on a TT and Skim no problem, only problem is with the lulls below 10 the kite tends drop out of the air. Was thinking I might get some better light wind sessions on the Helium. Do you fly Nitros?

Re: Helium 3

For all you Helium 3 riders, I'm thinking about switching out my Nitro N5-16 for a Helium 3 16, I still ride N6 10M & 12M which I really enjoy, looking to replace the the low end wind 10-15mph on TT-SB and Skim, I do like the old school big air qualities of the Nitro. Do you think I will he happy wi...

Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

Has anyone had issues with the Nitro flying too high in the window and Hindenburg? I have a 12m Nitro 6 and I think this has happened at least once per session, never been an issue on my Elements, and I'm used to riding in places with fluky unstable wind, keeping the kite moving, etc. It usually ha...

Re: Controller 4

I personally like a smaller bar, always have.
Right now I'm using the 46" bar with the 10 and 12 Nitro's for me its perfect, I don't feel the need for anything bigger with these kites, that being said its all what you get used to.

Re: Nitro 7

I was pretty happy with the Nitro 5- 10M,12M,&16M, The 5 was a major improvement from the 4. I just got the Nitro 6 12M, delivered I'm looking forward to a session on it and comparing it to the 5. My only issue now is I'm nursing bruised ribs from a fantastic session on Saturday. Should be back on t...
