Sounds interesting. Thanks BWD! For now gonna get the Razors and see how light I can go with the 12. Gotta drop a few (lot) of lbs (kilos). Hurt my back this summer pumping up a kite- can you bele dat?  I was in California, didn’t bring my BST electric with me cause of the weight- BAD decision! Bought the electric cause I’ve had two spinal fusions over the years and was a great investment. Was on the couch eating and drinking away the pain for 6 weeks, gained about 20 lbs! Hope the 12 Razor will do it for me, if not I’ll look into the hybrid! What would be th comparison between a ‘10 Rise 14m and they new 15m hybrid? 12m Razor compared to ‘10 14m Rise and to 15m hybrid? Wave riding is my main focus. Let’s hear what the Crew has to say.
Thanks again

This crew member thinks the razor will be a better kite for waves.
On the fast turning setting it is very easy to flick around one handed and the traction comes on much faster
which is what you need to get your butt out of trouble in the waves.

Lemme know how you like it when it arrives Chrys. How many pounds do your kites pull around?

Finally got out on the 10 m Razor yesterday.

Wind was very light prob 14-16 knots with a bit current taking some of the punch out.  Would not normally have ridden were it not for a brand new kite.

Was easily able to ride and stay upwind on my regular twin tip (138x42) at 195 lbs/88kgs (a lighter rider was pulled downwind on his 12m Thruster).  Was definitely impressed with low end - power felt very immediate, and as though there was a little a more kite to pull/edge against than had I been on my 10 Rise.  Noticed more power through turns, nice pull on some back roll kite loops (more than the Rise), climbed nicely back to the top of window too.

Wind was a little to light to gauge the boosting ability.  Also a little to light to really unhook to much but a couple of raillies felt good.

I learned on C’s but have ridden Rises since 2007.  Found my 12m Rise gets almost no use as my 10 would get me going in about 14 knots and anything less is not worth the effort.  Am planning to have the 10m Razor and my “big kite” - at least for now.

Will post more after a few more sessions.  Overall very impressed and very pleased.
Thank you Ross!

So far it all sounds pretty good.

Will give the 10m a go.  At 180 sounds like it’ll fit nicely.  Pretty interested to see what king of range I can get with a surf/wake combo and how it compares to my beloved diablos.

Anyone on the new bar yet?  Porcelain insert? for real?  Looks sweet.  Just don’t send me the big one!

Lol i think he means polished, porcelain is a bit fragile.

I guess I did not hear about changes in the SLE freeride bar at all.
Thought that one was pretty much done for now, and the work went into the wake style bar with mini 5th and above bar sheeting.
And as usual, I stray off topic again, just call me ADD man….....hey let’s ride bikes! cheese

Off topic

Sorry, ceramic bushing.

Mentioned way back on KF, stuck in my head as something new.  Same post had people thinking the Razor came in 7’s and 9’s.

Yes sure Barry i’m very curious on how the Razor fly’s, eventhough i’m riding an other brand kite now.
I think OR has made the missing link in their kite segment, they can satisfy more people now within the brand and also newcomers of course.

We only need wind Barry, last year windconditions were way better this year just makes me sad hmmm
