  1. Need leaders for your Rev?

    For anyone who needs them, we have Pro Leaders available in the KiteLife shop! These are tied to my specifications, each one precisely made by my wife @TAKAKO using only the best quality cored bridle line. These are complete sets, including two longer top leaders and two shorter bottom leaders (4 pieces total). Tuning tips: After installing, set lines on the very end knot of each leader and try to launch - if launching is too difficult, shorten the top knot by one and try again, repeat until the kite feels "full" and gives you a good launch. The bottom knots are for quick equalization of your bottom lines (very important) which can vary every time you swap kites or lines due to the small variances in stretch for both lines and bridle, if one bottom left line feels a little longer, shorten accordingly. == Grab yours now - http://kitelife.com/forum/store/category/5-accessories/ And if you already have yours, we'd LOVE to hear about your experience with them via a reply here.
  2. Hello, I 've been flying my B series revs the last the three months using the knots suggested in the video that came with the kite. I can manage all the slides and hovers. Recently, someone suggested that I should fly with a longer pigtails because that's is how Team Iquad fly. Being a newbie, I took the suggestion and made some longer pigtails and fly at the most outer knots at possible. The problem is I am not sure why I am doing so. Can someone explain the principal behind this? Thanks!

    Another in the ongoing series of Kitelife Magazine tutorials for using Revolution quad line kites, this one detailing how to equalize your lines, ensuring equal length between right and left.All types of line stretch or "settle in" over time and will eventually end up uneven by varying amounts which effects the accuracy of your inputs accordingly... You'll be amazed at how the kite responds more accurately, and how easy it actually is to balance out your line lengths. NOTE: A reliable (and free) cross-platform video player is VLC, which should work with any file format including MKV.
