The Liquid Force P1 brings new blood to Liquid Force's gene pool with a performance profile bred for ease of use, quick relaunch, predictable response, and on-demand power and depower.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
This an interesting kite to be sure. We've found that this kite is everything it's billed to be, but it's not a good choice for a beginner. The P1 is very high aspect, which means it's fast. It doesn't like to go slow and absolutely needs to be on the go. Unless you have solid kite skills, the P1 is too fast for most riders as it's easy to overshoot the window. That said, in the right hands, the P1 is a boosting machine and loves to ride fast particularly with a speed-oriented foil.
