69891Re: Bow kite or classic lei kite?
- Mar 22, 2006Our experience here proves the opposite, the majority of kiters prefer bow
style kites and once they have tried one, they buy one and then buy more.
Because of the huge advantage of being able to push the bar away and depower
95%, they can control both power and speed which gives a huge boost to
confidence and lets them focus on learning more. There is nothing better for
the average rider in both waves and flat water.
We also sell North, Flexifoil, Naish, Slingshot, Globerider, Peter Lynn,
Liquid Force, Airush and Cabrinha.
We let people choose, we never push them towards any particular kite, we
have a huge demo kite and board range, people buy what they like, bows
outsell C's 20 to 1, there has to be a reason eh??

The Hybrids like Vegas06, Tribal (and JN wild Thing and more or less Matrix
and Impact) are worth their money.
Wait for next generation bows untill things have sorted out. A.o.
there will be no more pulleys.(prone to wear/failure) Finally the way to go
will be a mix of C-kite and Bow.
IMO The Hybrids are at the moment THE type of kites to go for.
