Default Powerhouse Crossbow 16 in the HOUSE!!!

Many of you have been inquiring about the 2009 IDS Crossbow 16 and have wanted to demo this kite.

We just got one today at the shop and is available for demo. Just contact me for a demo appt. and I will hook you up.

I ride the Crossbow 11 most of the time and has amazing range. There is a significant difference in power between the 11m and 13m Crossbow. The 16M should have some serious grunt and be a great kite for the larger rider of 200+ lbs.

As soon as I get a chance to ride this thing, I will post some comments about the kite. I expect it to have the pull of a 17M Contra but be much smoother and use less effort to ride.

Can't wait. Might get it out in the water tomorrow.

Default Out with the old, in with the new!!!!

What a blast yesterday at Sunset. I know I have said it before, but such a great bunch of guys and gals up there.

Everyone took a turn on 16 Crossbow and that thing stayed in the air for 7 hours solid. We launched it at 12:30 and rode it till sundown.

That kite is a blast. Amazing power and speed. For a kite that size, it turns surprisely fast.

For anyone that is 200+ looking for the best performance out there, give this thing a lookover. I would be curious to know what you think.

My Contra 17 has been put to rest and is finally up for sale. Kite is in beautiful condition. Any reasonable offer considered.
