very windy day at one of our favourite beaches we managed
to take a flight test with the new Peter Lynn Vortex!
Lynn Vortex - 14m >
This kite is really good even in the gusty conditions I
had today. It turned really quick and as with all other
Peter Lynn ARC style kites it doesn't want to overfly! Good
de-power range with this kite - even with the wind reaching
25knots I was still able to stay upwind on my board.
Good jumping but the surprise was the amount of hangtime.
Quite a large amount of carry downwind but as mentioned
its not a problem to get back upwind with this kite.
Build Quality >
Improvements include a foolproof inflate/deflate zippers
enabling for quick setup and pack-down and personalised
bar pressure can be obtained by using the different attachment
points on the wingtips.
3-part wingtip lightwight alloy spars allow
for a smaller kitebag rucksack allowing for easy transportation
or alternatively if you wish to leave the spars assembled
- the bag is improved and now comes with a zip-up section
to enclose the kite as opposed to last year's drawstring.
There is also a steering adjuster inside
the kite to personalise a more tighter/looser turn rate
as well as lighter/heavier bar pressure. Launch assistant
tags also included for easy solo-launching.
This is a confidence inspiring kite for new-comers to the
sport or those more experienced kitesurfers who want a more
forgiving and less technical kite to fly.
