  7. Rev Tutorial - Sail Loading

    Another in the ongoing series of Kitelife Magazine tutorials for using Revolution quad line kites, this one detailing the dynamic of Sail Loading wherein the pilot is able to compress and decompress wind in the sail at will, using that pressure and added control to flex and unflex the frame, creating a far greater range of movement in varying wind conditions.
    One of the greatest uses for Sail Loading is that it also serves to minimize the amount of input required, instead relying on increased or decreased pressure to enhance smaller inputs.

  12. Rev Tutorial - Line Management

    Full tutorial detailing the line winding and unwinding methods developed by John Barresi and Team iQuad out on the field, over the course of over one hundred festivals worldwide since 2006.

    One of the recurring issues we've heard from Rev fliers, especially newer pilots, is the frequency of twists and tangles when folks set up their kite to fly but using this method correctly, any flier can set up in 3-5 minutes without fail and roughly the same to pack up at the end of the day.
