Hi,

I ride North Dice 9m2 and 12m2 but Dice 12m2 doesn't work below 9-10m/s for me (I'm 97kg) and Dice biggest size is 13m2. Which one would be closer to Dice - Krypto or Nitro? I dont' do any of unhooked stuff, so jumps and loops hooked only. Thanks for advice!

Cheers,
Stan

You think? Krypto is a 5-strut bridled C vs. the 3-strut "open C" of the Nitro. I'd say the Nitro is close to the dice. **don't really know what I'm talking about

Fair enough :) Both are 5-strut. Apparently Krypto loops better.

Hi Stan,

If your not looking to unhooked I don’t recommend going with the krypto. Nitro6 is an awesome kite for big air but not for megaloops. For me your best to go with the Element6, why because it megaloops great and has pleanty of hangtime more then the Nitro6. Hope tis helps you.

Cheers

ElementV6 is not like the Dice, more like the Evo. I happened to ride a 2017 Evo not long after the EV6, felt very similar. Think Krypto would be the better choice in that regard... but the EV6 has better lowend probably.

EV6 similar hangtime as the N6, but no way it's more. It does climb up fast, so I guess it catches you nicely indeed. Didn't try that, I'm not at the overpowered looping in 35kts level yet, probably never will, lol.

But I was under the impression the Krypto is the loop kite from Switch now? ...

I also remember how stoked you were with the looping of the N4 (post on kiteforum)... what happened with the V6 then? Thought that one looped even better?

It all depends on what Stan is looking for most. If he wants to go all in for proper mega loops 100% go for Krypto. Krypto is more of a high wind kite, the more juice you got the better they go. were the element6 works amazingly in both low and high winds. But to me, it seems like he's more after a kite that can boost well with great hang time but also can mega loop easier. That's why I would recommend element6 to him. The Nitro6 or any past nitro's are great kites for big air. But they just don't work for mega loops yet, never have. but good things will be coming in the future for the nitro ;)

Thanks for replies but now I'm confused :)
Before Dice I was riding F-One Bandit and Best Roca so Delta kites and switched to Dice as it's faster and gives more precise feeling through jump. I understand that Element is also a Delta and would expect it behaves more like Roca so very stable, better wind range etc. that makes it perfect all-round free-ride and hangtime machine. But if I'm looking for faster turns and direct feel then would Krypto be the better choice?

Thanks!

Element turns plenty fast, and pretty direct. Comparable to the Bandit. Not sure about the Krypto, but looking at the type of kite and the fixed bridle option my guess is it's fast and direct too. Probably more power delivery in the turn.

Nitro=5strut bridled
Krypto=3strut
The last one can be ridden both bridled and unbridled I think and MJ rides his Nitro's unbridled I heard on here.
Kites: Nitro V6 10m, Element V3 9m & Legacy v2 9m
