Re: Controller 4

I received my C4X a few days ago and it feels very nice and light. I wish I have read this thread before ordering, as just when I took it out of the box I got disappointed with the overall length of the bar. I understand that the measurement is between the line attachment points, but the overall fe...

Anyone else using this kite a lot? Is it really as stable so it appears to be? Sounds like just what I need as a beginner.
I would go for the Element6, if you are a beginner.

Re: Switch Krypto ??

Re: Element 6 Canopy Ripples Near Left Wingtip Normal?

Haven´t noticed it, nothing to be afraid about, think about how much wind is traveling across the canopy. :)

Just to compare and come you even more down :D I used 2 seconds on google to find a picture of the 2018 rally.

Re: Switch Element V6

Need a little help deciding which kites to purchase. I am currently riding an 8m Nitro 4, 11m Element v2, and 14m Nitro 4. I am 220lbs and I mostly freeride and boost with twintips. I am looking to replace the Element with 10m and 12m kites, but can’t decide whether to get the Nitro 6 or Element 6....

I removed the stopperball. On my lightwindbar I even removed the adjuster 8-)

Maybe I should try another frontline adjustment at the kite (the attachment point closer to the Tips)?
Maybe that´s why it front stall, the lines have become to much from same length, when "depowering" on the bar.

Re: Nitro 7 - The one that got away

I think the same. I don't care about who designs what if they deliver good products. I realy like the approach of the new element to go back to it's roots to be a "one fits all" kite. What i really like to see is a more accurate description by switch of their products. I was realy interested in the...
