Re: 2 questions for controller v1

Thanks for the answers! As the bar is a backup solution and as I have the V2 bar, I won´t change the safety. It works. A few days ago I did a handlepass, I let go of the totally depowered bar. Then I got pulled by an unstoppable looping kite. That was a nightmare. After that I couldn´t figure out wh...

2 questions for controller v1

Hi, just two questions: How do I change the mini 5. line system to a single front line safety? I remember there was a video but I didn´t find it... Is there a safe way to store the adjuster line when fully depowered the bar? I realised it´s quite dangerous to let it dangle around. The small velcro d...

How much extra lift can one expect from nitro3 vs. element2?

Has anyone ridden both kites? As the nitro2 is a special big air kite: How much boost can one expect compared to the element2?

Re: remove the strut connectors?

Re: which trim for unhooking the element2?

More bar pressure vs More Turning speed - this is to make your kite less responsive and unintentionally shoot up in the sky or down in the water while throwing the bar around This sounds sensible. But is it the only effect, or has "more bar pressure" influence on the pop and slack? More direct driv...

Re: remove the strut connectors?

What are these strut connectors you speak of?? Please attach pic if possible. I mean the clips to close the airflow between the struts and the main strut.

remove the strut connectors?

which trim for unhooking the element2?

Hi,
I really like my element2. What trimming do you suggest for wakestyle? Just the factory settings?

Direct bar feel or more bar feedback?
More depower or more turning speed?

thx!
