I must admit now after a month of flying the N6 that it handles quite different to the N5. It takes me a 10 mins to get use to the quicker turning of the N6 and I find myself accidentally sending the kite towards 12 more often when doing tricks as it is more agile.

It's a good problem and i much prefer the n6.

Just food for thought if you have a mixed quiver of N5s and N6s like me and kite in a variety of wind conditions meaning you dont have a commonly used size...

Is it very quick? Let's say like cab fx? I like quick kites but in bought Legacy which are rather slow and I'm thinking to switch to Nitro but I'm bit hesitant to go blind again without demo.

Slower than the FX but better low end and more bar pressure. Quicker than the Legacy.

My N6 has started fraying where the canopy is sewen to the leading edge. I have strands up to 3 inches long hanging off it. Anyone else have this problem?

What's the bar pressure like? I take it it's lower than Legacy v1? A lot lower I hope...
Also, can anyone comment on the wind range of 7m? I'm specifically interested in low end. Im not sure which size should I buy, 7m or 8m. I'm 83kg btw.

thanks I saw the footage, very impressive!
Can you comment on the bar pressure? I have Legacy v1 and I consider it to have heavy bar pressure coming of pulley\bridled kites

The core gts, fx and park have had the lightest bar pressures i have ever tried. Conversley, the NRG, Switchblade and TS have high bar pressure. The N6 is in the middle and is slightly lighter than the N5 and L2.

Your arms wont get pumped out on this kite unless you are a complete weakling...

Just received N6 8m, pretty much next day delivery to UK :shock:
I have to admin the quality is top notch! I love the bag, pocket for the bar, pump straps, board straps! I know I know... it's sad to get excited about a BAG but I hated my Airush duffel. I hope this weekend I get to test N6 in decent wind.
