I need a replacement bridal and control line leaders for my 07 14m Rise. I can’t find them anywhere! I’m near Panama City Beach. I’m heading to the keys for a kiting trip in 7days. Need this ASAP…

If they are no longer available… ok but does anyone have the exact lengths of all the lines that make up the SLE system for the 07 14m Rise?

Thanks for the information but it seems off to me… correct me if I’m wrong, but according to the chart and the diagram, the rear attach point or control line leaders should each be 165.5 inches or 13.8 feet long. That seems way LONGER than the leader lines I had on there before. I remember them being only about a 3-4 foot extension of the rear control line. Am I missing something? I also don’t see the line associated with ‘G’ on the chart according to the diagram.

Sounds like you have an 07 kite that has the 08 bridle mod. The 07 bridle had the a pulley attached to the wingtip , the 08 bridle mod has the pulley on the E bridle. If that`s the case then your rear bridles should be 50.3” long. I`ll make a couple and have them sent out to you today.

That looks better…

Name and address PM’ed.

Thank you very much. I bought the kite used and didn’t realize the bridle had been modded. You guys rock and I love my Rise… can’t wait to have enough saved up to buy a new one!
