Back Line Tuning – (Bandit V12 & Breeze V2 kites)
How to adjust the settings?
SHEETED IN The back line is released and the forces go through the front connector. The bar pressure increases and the maneuverability is less direct. It offers a very progressive bar with a feeling of a sheeted out back connector while we sheet in, therefore the pressure increases progressively.
SHEETED OUT The kite tilts and the back line stiffens. The tensions move to the trailing edge which has several effects: – less flapping – better start – maneuverability with less pressure.
HIGH TENSION TUNING When the kite is sheeted out with the upper knot tuning (Knot 1):
- kite’s maneuverability increases
- bar pressure reduces
LOW TENSION TUNING When the kite is sheeted out with the lower knot tuning (Knot 2):
- kite’s maneuverability reduces
- bar pressure increases
