as you know Flysurfer Kiteboarding is now on the LEI Tube Kite market with the brand new and first one Tube Kite in the brand : The Cronix.
Few weeks ago we were in Fuerte Ventura (Canary Island) to shoot the promotional video and photos of this new kite, and by the way it was a great opportunity to test all the size (6-8-10-12) in different kind of conditions from 15 knots to 35 knots. (Pix under : me - one foot)
As always the FS quality is here.
The first time i ride the Cronix was the 12m in approximatly 12-15 knots, and i directly knew that this kite is awesome!
Even it was a light wind for a first try i managed to do some cool hooked spins and some nice unhooked tricks, the kite was turning fast and the pop of the kite was very good for a 12-15 knots session! (Pix under : Bram Bast - Low Mobe)
I couldn't wait for more wind to test this kite in other sizes, and my wishes were realised because we had good wind all days after :-)
We did a sick strong wind session in "Sota Vento" on a big blue lagoon, it was a great opportunity to test the 6m and 8m Cronix for big Kite Loops, and the only thing i can say is that I LOVE this kite for big mega loops!! (Pix under : Dylan - Mega Loop)
The Cronix loops fast & furious and go directly over your head to power up, you can easely do 2 or 3 loops in the air with the 6m or 8m in 30 knots or more!
We had some very nice session also on the North-East coast of the island, next to "Cotillo" and "Lajares", we found some EPIC savage blue lagoons there with clear flat area to do some unhooked and big hangtime. (Pix under : me - front roll tail grab)
I used to ride the Cronix 10m from 20 to 25 knots on those spots, if you Like hangtime you will Love the 10m in 20-25 knots, you will fly and loop the kite sooo easely, it was so much fun to do some big Front rolls with a huge downloop!!
The 12m Cronix is very good from 15 knots to 25 knots, you go high and you can still loop the kite and power up before landing, great kite for freeriding and freestyling! (Pix under : Dylan - Railey)
You can settle (adjust) the bar pressure as you want, from the back lines bridles of the kite you can choose to put your bar pressure Light (for unhooked), Middle (unhooked and hooked) or Strong for those who like to feel the kite at his maximum!
The spy is very strong, i crashed many times the kite, on water, sand and Rocks, and the LEI tubes never brokes and the spy was still intact! The quality is here for sure!
For my point of view, the Cronix is a super good Tube kite from beginers to advanced kiters!
It's a very good kite to go BIG on "Hooked mode" and an awesome kite to do some new-school unhooked riding!
Stop speaking and just watch this EPIC promotion video of the Cronix, "A new era begins"!
