Re: Nitro v5 14m opinions

the nitro is very heavily constructed making it very difficult to fly in threshold winds. You have to keep the kite moving at all times in those winds once you stop the kite will drop with a lull. Can be frustrating sometimes when you see ppl with 3 struters or strutless kites parking their kites st...

Re: Nitro v5 14m opinions

sounds like you are choking the kite, i did the same when i first flew the nitro. sheet in downstroke then let the bar go when you bring the kite up then sheet in again..if you keep the bar sheeted in the whole time the kite will try to backstall and slows down its speed. Also you really have to cra...

Re: Nitro jumping technique

i'm still working on my techniques/timing with the nitro v4..it definitely feels different compared to the TS You have to either ride it very lit or send the kite hard while maintaining a very good edge. This is very difficult for me because it generates tons of hook pull and when I ride it extremel...

Re: Controller 3 Swivel

if you are scared like me..you can use any 4 line bar with low V swivel.

2015 Best RP bar works perfectly with all my nitros. I use 47cm even on my 14m which still turns fast enough when depowered half way.

switch nitro 4 5-line configuration

interested in testing out the 5 line configuration to improve light wind relaunch - does anyone have a guide how to do that?

also for anyone who has done it, how does it affect depower, stability etc?

thanks!

Re: Controller 3 Swivel

agree with the rest that the next bar- eliminate the upper swivel completely and keep it clean. The manual below bar swivel is awesome. No need to be fancy even a metal ring or reinforced plastic one works just fine and super safe. You can use the money saved to make the bar a bit more comfy or redu...

Re: V4 controller

i hope for the next version you guys would just get rid of that above the bar swivel all together...replace with best or cabrinha style with no resistance easy flagout. Removing the swivel also makes the bar lighter so it is more likely to float. The below bar swivel is good enough to get around any...
