Cool, I’ll check it on the Rise.
I really want to get the line mount, one question about it:
If the kite inverts and the outside lines are inside the inside lines, will the GoPro line mount cause any issues? I dont think it would, since the few times I have done this the outside lines are inside the inside lines further up from the swivel.
That is a good question.
First of all, when I use the kite line mount, I understand that when I introduce anything foreign to my kite lines, I could potentially put myself at risk. this means I may change up my riding style slightly to avoid potentially risky situations. I also recommend that you secure your kite mount to your lines. When the kite lines are tensioned, the mount is secure and cannot work free. If you happen to lose tension in your lines, it could work itself off from your lines. Some options to securing it in the event you lose tension would be to wrap the line managers with some tape or a hair bungee or even a rubber band.
That way it is still secure even with loose lines. Do use caution when you have loose lines because like anything else around loose lines, the kite mount can become snagged and your mount can become entangled in loose lines.
As for your question on when a kite inverts or rolls. When this happens your lines can become twisted inside of the steering lines. usually this happens farther up the lines and can still be flown. the kite mount was designed to be secured and mounted just at the vertex of your front lines (just above either a 1 to 2 split or above your pulley connection point) It can still fly, but best to go back in to the beach to resolve any line twists.
