What will be the effect? Tuning? Should I expect back stalling?Ozone kites don’t require them and I eventually want to have 3 bars with different line lengths for different wind strengths. Can I put the pigtails on my 2 razors and thereby make all 4 kites compatible with the same bar/ines? I know I’ll have to play around with this to get it right but I’m hoping somebody has already figured some of it out and can let me know what they found out. Anybody else fly Ozone bars with OR kites?…….Gary &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Alberta</p> 2014-11-09T18:24:17+00:00 14.5 Flite V3 First Session https://www.oceanrodeo.com/forums/viewthread/4594/ https://www.oceanrodeo.com/forums/viewthread/4594/#When:01:49:50Z <p>Ok, a bit of disclosure, I’m a tech rider for OR, and have been riding OR kites for 4 years now going from the Rise to my current quiver of 10/8m Razors, 12m Cypher. I’m not a fan of lightwind riding, I’d rather surf or just not go out in light air. Light wind to me being anything below 12 knots. My main reason for getting this kite was to squeeze better sessions out of those 12 - 15 knot days that we get a lot, and it will a replacement for my 12m Cypher. I’m 6’0, 180 lbs, and ride roughly 50/50 twintip (134 Nobile 2HD/surfboard (5’9” quad) now. </p> <p>So, with all of that said, we had a pretty typical fall teaser wind, where we have pre-frontal SW winds which bring in warm air as well as the ubiquitous marine layer limiting it to 10 knots roughly. The kite arrived on my doorstep today, so I figured oh well, I’ll go down to the beach, pump it up, maybe take a few pictures, and possibly put it up for a bit. </p> <p>First thoughts out of the bag, the kite feels lightweight for it’s size, and the leading edge feels skinnier than typical. Everything else looks typical OR construction. Windalert showed basically 9 - 13 knots, mostly in the 10 to 12 range. I launch and was fully powered to the point I had to depower the kite for most of the session. I honestly am amazed at the power the kite had. I was expecting at best to mow the grass, instead I had absolutely no issue staying upwind, jumping, and doing whatever. It felt like what 15 - 17 knots would feel like on my 12m Cypher. </p> <p>Turning speed is probably a touch slower than the 12m Cypher, but not by much, all in all, downloops, etc. were plenty quick and responsive. The kite drifted well while riding a surfboard, and was very stable with no fluffing. Absolutely no stalling. I loved it. </p> <p>On the downside, I think it’s going to take some time to nail down jumping, I’m used to the snappy pull from the Razor, and my timing was definitely off with this kite. However, I think it’s more my issue than anything else, as there were a few times where my timing was lined up right and had really nice lofty jumps with decent hangtime. Again, I’m amazed I was able to jump. </p> <p>All in all, this is the best product OR has released since i’ve been riding the kites. I love the Razor kites and their responsiveness, but I am honestly shocked at how well this kite preformed. Keep in mind of course, I’ve never flown any other lightwind kite (including either of the first two generations of Flite) and this was only one session. I’ll update and do a complete review once I get a few more sessions in. </p> <p>PS - Just for s’s and g’s, I weighed myself with the Flite and my 12m Cypher to see the delta on the weight. The Flite came out to 7.8 lbs, the 12m Cypher 8.4. OR maybe able to confirm if that sounds correct or not. </p> 2014-11-07T01:49:50+00:00 No crotch relief in the Heat? https://www.oceanrodeo.com/forums/viewthread/4592/ https://www.oceanrodeo.com/forums/viewthread/4592/#When:16:03:38Z <p>I can’t believe the Heat doesn’t come with a crotch relief zip.&nbsp; </p> <p>Can one be added as an option?
