    Wind was so crap even the 17m didnt perform. The leader was on a 16m vapor 2 followed by a 15m diablo. Its great to see new kites and constant development but performance difference is so so marginal now. I truely belive a good kite can make a faster kiter. But a great kiter can make almost any kite faster. When there is wind the pl team are always up front, but they are brilliant kiters....im sure they would be there no matter what kite they flew.

    Your proably right that its not a game changer, we raced against the proto kites all last year and they were very quick. The now production kites are not exactly the same and in the very short blast we had at our last race weekend due to crap light winds the 14m Aero was no quicker than the Diablo's out there.
    We wait to see if the PL team pilots will again be tweeking their kites between every race to stay ahead of the competition or if the production kites are a bit closer in performance to the rest of the race foils out there.
    From all the racing we have done last year with these new kites we know the difference between the likes of the R1,Diablo,sonic and Aero are very minimal.

    The little devil! superb kite. 
    Last Friday I went to Brean for the weekend. on arriving at the beach the wind was very light.....about 10mph. I didn't want to dirty my 11m and hadn't flown the 8m yet so it was my weapon of choice for the day. 
    It was bloody brilliant. sine the kite to get moving and after 50m or so the apparent wind kicked in and off we went. 
    There were 3 of us there. 6.4m 8m and 15m diablo's (15 came down to 8m also) . it looked so good.

    On 28th January we went to the Rangsdorfer lake just south of Berlin. We ha a couple of weeks temperatures below 0 degree Celsius. The ice was not perfect flat and black but still good enough for us 😂. Around 13cm thick ice. The wind was very low at 3-5 knots. Alfred used a 11m Vapor and 14m Yakuza, I used my 12m Diablo and 8m Diablo.
    Icebuggy is so nice ... love it !
    Are there any frozen lakes in AU or NZ?
    Warm regards from Germany

    The Vapor had over 3 square meters more surface. Considering it was my first time out with the Diablo. There is one huge advantage within the depower, you can depower... the vapor keeps on pulling 😋.
    Thanks for the feedback!

    Started with 11m. Just bought an 8m too. Then I'm still after a 15m....more saving needed but might be out priced now so may go to another brand for the 15m.

    Sonic fr v1 and F-one diabolo v1 are similar in performance,  however the F-one has slightly better upwind performance.   @socommk233 and I have raced an approx 2 mile distance and the diabolo beat the sonic by approx 30 meters.  I am heavier than Russ so not sure if pilot weight matters once on the roll 🤔.  The diabolo has better bar pressure and handling than the sonic.   I found that the sonic sometimes jellyfishes in strong winds,  not sure if this takes away from the performance,  it's just someting you need to get use to,but I have not witnessed this effect with the diabolo (and am keen to see if it still happens with the sonic v2).
    At the moment, it's down to price....v2 diabolo is plenty more money to fork out to own compared to the sonic v2!
    I would personally go the sonic route if using with a buggy.  Our races do not have as long reaches as foilboard races, so there is less opportunity to see the true performance advantages of a kite with a very expensive price tag.
    F-one have simply priced themselves out of the compitition.... 🤓

    The new Flysurfer Sonic2 Depower Foil Race Kite has been released, with new sizes, an updated profile and improved materials.
    The new sizes introduced are 6M and 13M Sonic2 kites.  Aspect ratios have also changed across the range with the 9M moving from 6.75 to 7.1 and the 11M, 15M and 18M also increasing in ratio from 6.75 to 7.25.  The depth across the board of the profile reducing up to 5cm.  Cell counts remain identical.  
    Flysurfer has moved to using the Lotus cloth on the top skin to improve efficiency.  There's now also more valves in the very middle of the kite, to increase the airflow, improve internal pressure and increase acceleration from slow turns by increasing the rate at which the kite fills.
    Super Charger add-on is an optional extra which uses part of the brake level of the bridle to over-sheet the kite effectively increasing your ability on a downwind run.  It involves additional bridle modification, and increases the bar pressure when powered up.  It's an optional add-on and recommended for competition use.
