Ok. just got my nice shiny new 12m one and went to pump it up for the first time. looks great but have an issue with the one pump.
the connection between the 2nd strut from the centre and the L.E has a leak. this is caused by the fact that the nipple on the LE bladder has collapsed. the nipple obviosuly needs to be squeezed to fit into the black tube, but this one has collapsed to the point where the rubber tube will not seal on to it. this means that the LE continually leaks air, even with the hose clip squeezed right up.
any ideas for a solution? thought of inserting something into the nipple, but this would mean that probally couldnt then squeeze it into the hose. its definately a manufacturing fault so maybe a warrenty claim?
cant use the kite as it is and its sitting there taunting me…..
