My new 15m LF Hifi


This is my latest kite into my ever growing collection of kites. A friend of mine had originally thought she was going to take up kite surfing and bought all the gear, took a couple of lessons and used this kite maybe twice. It's been sitting behind her couch since it was new. I asked her if she was ever going to use it. She told me NOPE and that kiting was not her thing apparently. (didn't like getting lifted) LOL!. I asked her if she wanted to sell it to me, and 100 bucks later.. MINE! Kite and bars. I have not had a chance to fly it yet and wanted to see if anyone on here has flown these before. It's a 2008 15m LF Hifi. I like high floaty jumps. Hoping this kite is like my 16m Vegas and Waroo in that regard.

yep, its the cut down version of the assault II,

think has the Y 5th line thing , think they considered it a bridle component.

first c-kite /bow hybrid that worked. powerful , 15m is gonna be a bit slow.

definitely more bow kite behavior, the loaded 5th line thing, i never liked it.

Yeah, It got a loaded 5th line. It y's out to 4 attachment points along the leading edge. I'm glad it still had the bars. I didn't want to mod any of my other bars. If anything it will be another kite I can go to when I get bored of some of my others or a good backup. It's funny that none of my other large kites turn as fast as my 19m Fuel or my 14m Vegas. The 19 is surprisingly quick!
