These Liquid Force Solo V3 17.5 are brand new in plastic, and ready for the light winds.
When Liquid Force released the Solo, they broke the mold of traditional bridles kiteboarding kites. Everyone asked, "What is the point of a one strut kite and why would I want that thing?" Now almost every brand has a copy cat kite, but there is only one Solo. LF has refined the single strut design to be the most user-friendly kite they have ever made.
•Responsiveness Medium to slow turning speed. Very predictable.
•Turn Radius Medium turn radius
•Window Position Forward in the window gives you great upwind performance.
•Wind Range Big wind range - 170 lbs riders expect optimal power on a 12m in the 8-22mph wind.(Foilboarding with the Solo a 170 lbs person is using the 12m in 8-15mph.)
•Relaunch Great relaunch with the once small exception explained in Tomahawk Test.
•Bar Pressure Medium Bar Pressure.
•Power Per Size Rides big for the size and has gotten a lot more controllable on the top end giving this kite a monster wind range.
