Just received my 1st OR-kite a Diablo Venturi, and yes I’m stoked tongue rolleye !!!!! Just one question; how hard do you guys inflate the LE & struts? I thought I’ve read 8-9 PSI somewhere (Rise-manual).

Pump up the LE until it has a nice high pitch “ping” when you flick it with your finger. Don’t rely on gauges. They break sooner then later.

Thanx, thought so too. I’m really good at over-inflating kites, wrecked 3 kites that way… Hopefully not with OR-gear, cause it looks and feels really tough.
