can you please say us the windrange of the new kites, because the SLE manual isn´t updated. In detail it would be nice if you could say us the windrange of the intermediate sizes (13m to 12m and 11m to 10m and 9m to 8m)

2010 Rise Kites:

Update in performance -

Our winds are still cranking here in the Gorge, which is great for testing the new Rise kites. So far I’ve flown the 9m, 8m and 6m. I flew the (2010) 9m with the 09 OR bar at the AWIShow “it flew flawlessly” light to the feel yet powerful” yeah!

Being a shop rider I ride a few other brand of kites as well, although the Rise has been my favorite this past year. So I know how the 2008 & 2009 kites should fly. My session on the 2010 8m was interesting using a X-brand bar. I have used X-brand bars on the 09 Rises at times when the Demo kites in our shop had the (uh) bar missing, but not a big deal.

The interesting observation with the 2010 kites is that X-brand bars may be out of calibration; as in my case the front lines way too long and the throw (sheet line) minimal. With this scenario you may experience some “back flying” with the new kites. I have found that the OR bar tuned correctly is the best bar for these kites. The extra long throw will come in handy on the high end/range of the kite. A bar with less throw will leave you overpowered.

Anyway I flew the 2010 6m Rise today in nuking winds approaching 40mph, and it flew flawlessly. The difference from the 09 to the 10 was that the kite felt solid the whole time where the 09 was a bit softer. When the super gusts blew by, the kite projected forward and the canopy stayed solid. Jumping was great tho at a 155lb I was lit the whole time.

Looking forward to the new bars; I like the simple, safe approach especially when it gets crazy windy out there.

Stoked OR rider,
John

The 2010 look even more solid…
The extra strut must make it great for kiteloops I’ll bet… sure would be nice to be on some small kites like the 8-9….
Good to see how fast the bar came together too… From CAD to real life…!

Lots of interest in the Predator too..

These are 2009 Rise…. but couldn’t pass up watching this Rush of a RIDE on a Rise!

I’ve been out on the new Rise’s and I am very impressed with how well they fly and the range they have. I was out the other day on the ‘09 6m with a friend on the new ‘10 6m and it was very windy (average 35 with gusts to 48 according to iWindsurf). Both kites handled it with ease and never did anything unexpected. The ‘10 seemed to go upwind a little better. I have to agree totally with John (Kitesail) about the bar and lines. You need the extra throw the OR setup has to fully take advantage of the kites range. As far as low end improvement the jury is still out. Most days here have been pretty radical so far and low end hasn’t been the issue. They definitely have improved jumping characteristics with almost a second lift when you think you’re at your apex of the jump. Very good “float” and nice soft landings! I am going with the new 9m and 12m to replace my 8 and 10 Rise’s (2009’s) and stay with my ‘09 6m. I was totally happy with my ‘09’s but OR has just made them even better!! Thanks OR!!

yes they are!!! Just tried the 11m and that canopy is now rock solid. Totally bananas when you see it. Flew the 11m against the 2009 12m and it’s a huge step forward. The 2009 deformed in the loop while the 11m didn’t. Yum. They also seem to be very stable too.

Quite powerful as well, I was completely lit in 25mph on the 11m with 8-10 inches of trim pulled in. I’m 75kgs and completely lost on which kite size will suit me. 10m or 11m for the 20mph slot.

I also tried the 6m and that’s pretty amazing too but felt a little too small for me. 30 - 35mph and I was no where near the top end of this baby. This thing must rock with a surfboard.

Heh, ask Ben about the 6m and the King.

For the 20mph slot you surely want to be looking at the 8/9m.  Well, that’s what I’m doing anyway.  The 8m Rise will replace my 9m One which I use if it’s 20+mph.  I use the 12m if it’s getting upto but not much more over that… although sometimes I do, like Saturday afternoon.

I’m very impressed with the 2010 6m Rise and how stable yet quick it was… but first I want to see what the upper end of that 8 will be.

I’m really not sure Vpas. The 11m was perfect in Fridays wind which probably peaked around 18mph I think. Clenched butt cheeks on Saturday in 25mph with 8 inches of trim line pulled through the cleat. I’m thinking the 10m may be the one. My 9m ONE only really comes out in 25mph plus although having played with the bridles I need to revisit that. In truth my quiver is completely out of cink at the moment.

Fair enough - I guess I’m more like Andy’s lightweight frame than you, as I would get the 9m out from 20mph+. wink  I was suprised that you had that 11m out in the early afternoon.  My only minor regret from the weekend was not trying it back to back with my ‘09 12m.  Thankfully Richard is local, so I might yet get to do that.

I’ve been following the bridle mod with avid interest.  I may yet repair the 9 and then have a play with it.

PS It’s OK to call me Dave on the forum.

Cool…. I was thinking of going 11m 2010… wondering how much faster it would be or maybe the 12m 2010 will be faster than my 09 12.

Man would be fun to kite the gorge on a 6m…

I was always happily surprised how the 09 12m could actually turn fast enough for some decent kiteloops… so 11m would be even better maybe? but also want the 12 power…

I wasn’t sure on the 12m 2009. Felt OK but just not switched on if that makes sense. 11m different story and definately faster. Looks like you have a similar predicament to me now

I can tell you all that this season I am going from carrying a 6, 8, 10, 12 quiver to a 7, 9, 11. The 11 is a juiced kite, the 9 a beauty and the 7 has a massive range, I had it out in conditions I would normally have been on a 6 and lit on but had a great session.

We are all super sorry for the delays on getting this season’s kites out. We decided though that we were better to wait to ship the kites complete with the new bar than to ship them early in anticipation of the bar to come.

The bars are finished. They’re real and they’re spectacular. We anticipate having them here as of next week and to begin shipping Wednesday to all shops and customers with open orders.

Cheers!

John

Sweeet news John!
Getting the new kite along with this sexy new bar is worth the wait IMO.
Can’t wait to rub my sweaty paws all over them!
