Flight bar or handle bars...


Copied from old forum:

February 15 2003 by phil  

Hey, i'm in the market for a new quad kite and i have to choose between either a huge traction kite or a quad revolution or that chinese design quad kite. Right now, owning a 50 inch parafoil and previously owning a flashback that broke,I'm intrested in a parafoil but can't find an answer to my question: Are parafoil kites that come with flight bars, interchangable to quad handlebars... I'm trying to be as specific as possible but it seems to be hard to explain.

Yes, I'm sure that they all are able to be flown on handles. Some tuning of the lines is necessary and some kites require different size handles than others.

Forget the Chinese kite and I would not suggest the Rev for anything more than flatfoot flying.

However don't get yourself overpowered by buying a bigger kite than you need. If you are interested, I have some quad foils for sale. Currently I have a Quadrifoil KiteSurfer XL for $300 and an Aqua 9 for $375. Let me know if you are interested.
