In Topic: Power Blast 2-4?

04 March 2015 - 06:02 AM

http://www.revkites....power-blast-2-4

 

You can follow the link on the upper left of the forum screen that will take you to the Rev main page. Look on the left column for products and search for the item. There is a tab for specs on the product page.

 

BTW, it's not specified on the 2-4 details but the name derives from the power of a 4m foil on a 2m sail. It specifies it on the 4-8 product description.


In Topic: insignia tape on the NYM

I still think it's not necessary for the average flyer. For the amount of time spent on the lines and in conditions representative of the proper sail, it's more of a personal preference. No problem with those who want to do it, but I don't think it's necessary unless the condition of your equipment dictates it. I bought a used Rev with the tape on it and it's fine, but it's black and hides the tape anyway.


In Topic: Can you change the sail on a EXP?

25 February 2015 - 04:32 PM

The EXP is the type of kite. You don't change the sail per se. The sail is the kite. You can change the rods (3 wrap, 2 wrap, race rod, green race rods) for conditions, but sails are different fabrics, different sewing patterns(i.e. different panel layout) when we're talking about modifying our kites we're usually talking about changing the rods used in the leading edge and upright, changing the bridle, changing the bungees used to hold the rods on, etc.

 

Sometimes people will take an old sail and make it into a vented by cutting holes in the ripstop or modify it some other way, but the sails usually stay the same. When the conditions permit, we'll change kites from a standard sail to a mid-vent, full vent, 

 

The types of kites/models are EXP (entry level), B series, B pro, New York Minute, etc. Just look at the products section of the Revolution main page to explain the differences.

The sail is the main factor. The EXP uses a different fabric than the higher level kites and is a simpler design to sew. It comes in stock colors. Also, affected is the bridle. If you're looking to change, buy a higher level model. It will have more options for sail layout and colors, better bridle, better fabric, etc.
