Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

I agree that my issues with the Nitro are largely user error. I will say that my primary kite spot is Lake Champlain, VT, and it is extremely gusty. I've been kiting for 4+ years and am used to dealing with squirley winds. I've mainly been flying Elements this whole time, so perhaps this is a differ...

Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

I'm flying on the "light bar pressure" setting the way it came from the factory- with the bridal attached the furthest back. I've tried all three knots- the closest in knot slightly reduces the bad behavior but doesn't eliminate it entirely. I've never had anything like it happen with my elements, a...

Re: Upgrading from E3 to E6?

Thanks Faxie. So you don't think the new Element doesn't depower as well? Also, re: Nitro-- I have an N6 in a 12m and the problem I'm having with it is that it flies too high up in the window when it gets up near 12. I have had it hindenburg many times after a failed jump where I end up flying under...

Adding some photos. $550 with free shipping to the USA takes it! I made a video walkaround too, pm for a link.

Re: Nitro 6 Reviews !

Has anyone had issues with the Nitro flying too high in the window and hindenburging? 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 flukey unstable wind, keeping the kite moving, etc. It usually...

Upgrading from E3 to E6?

I'm headed down to OBX at the end of April, which will be the start of my kiteboarding season. Current quiver is Element4:5m, 7m, Element3: 9m, Nitro6: 12m. 9M is my most frequently used kite, and it's also my oldest. There's NOTHING wrong with my E3, no leaks, no repairs, nothing. But I'm so tempte...

Re: Nitro 12m V6 Blue/Yellow

Hi, it is still available! Sadly, the cheapest quote I could find for shipping to Lithuania was $255USD via FedEx. If you have any other suggestions I'd be happy to look into them!
