Hi guys, I know you have been waiting a lot to know more about the new 2009 diablo, here it is ....
For this new kite we really improved the performances of last year kite .
The kite a a real C kite with everything you want it to do for all wakestyle riders or anyone missing a true C kite.
Why C kite ?
C kite are made for riders who need to do all wakestyle tricks, unhooked or anything new school. The kite react better and allow to get a slack in the line while poping to pass the bar.
We kept all the good from the 2008 diablo and added some great things to make it your freestyle weapon.
The kite fly best with the 5th line. we are working on a small bridle mod on the kite to ride it 4 lines with the peformances of the 5th line setting.
The Leading edge and struts diameter have been reduced, the construction is still bombproof and the new graphic design we are working on are very nice and freestyle oriented.
The kite has less bar pressure than last years kite and it feels good, the bar pressure is just perfect to feel where exactly your kite is without having tenis elbow or getting tired.
The turning of the kite have been improved, the smaller diameter and new profile allow a better penetration in the air, the kite react very fast and turns very good.
The good thing is that the kite climbs very fast after looping it . It doesn’t turn on itself but generate a big arc and very fast while looping ... all kiteloop adept will love it.
While kiting and moving the kite you feel a very different sensation due to the lower bar pressure and the fast turning, the kite turns very smoothly and feel great to fly
The lift is better than last year ( which was already good), you will go high and stay long in the air while jumping.
For unhooking and handle passes, the kite react perfectly, it stays very stable.
After a pop jump you will get the great slack in the line to be able to pass the bar easily.
The relaunching is good.
The kite benefit of a very good depower, compare to last year diablo you will be able to handle the kite in much more wind than you were use to.
The kite is a little less powerfull than last year which was already very power ( to much for some people) than average so it shouldn’t be a problem.
Most of the C kite adept out there will like the new diablo C kite.
The 10m sample is available for anyone that want to test it .
