Changes from 2013Riders wanted more wind range, faster turning, agility,boost, height and response while keeping the stability and relaunch and ease of use of the 2012 Argo. I have removed the 123 ABC settings, and added a simple bridle to the center of the kite which gives a massive improvement to top end wind range and much more agile feel and makes the kite rock solid in strong gusts. There are only 2 settings on the argo and both work excellently.
Turning Settings: Fast Medium Slow
Ideal for:Schools, beginners, intermediate and pro, free ride, freestyle, wave riding, big boosts and float, kite loops, un hooked, Out performs dedicated wave kites with the advantage of being able to boost kiteloop and floaty jumps ease of relaunch and gust handeling ability. For riders wanting a grunty responsive kite with excellent depower.
Reccomended Settings:Fast turning on wing tips.Sholder setting closer to the back of the kite
The designers aim for the 2013 V7 TRX Pro kite was to design the fastest turning, most responsive and agile kite that was also super stable, light and fun to ride with a massive wind range for intermediate to advanced riders.
This was achieved with a thin three strut design, no pulleys and a open C high-medium aspect shape. This kite is a high aspect design with the wing tips cut off to make it look and perform like a fast turning medium aspect kite.
This kite has the speed, upwind and boost of a high aspect design with the grunt, turning, float, drift, stability and ease or relaunch of a medium aspect design.
The upwind ability is fantastic. The turning speeds and response is truly unbelievable.
The TRX V.7 Pro makes other kites look like they are going in slow motion. With bullet fast kite looping, tricks have never been easier to master. This kite will also pivot on its wingtip allowing for fast directional changes without being ripped off your board. It will keep you in the pocket of a wave with phenomenal drift, or can be looped down the line to generate more speed to zip over to the next section of a wave.
The light bar pressure allows for quick changing of hands when cutting back on a wave giving instant feedback and power when needed, or will be happy to just drift along the wave with you.
Ideal for: Pros and intermediate wave riders, free riding cruisers, and freestyle handle passing gurus. This kite is for riders who can handle a fast turning responsive kite.
Power from this kite is generated by fast turning and finding apparent wind. Advanced riders prefer the TRX because they know how to get the power out of the kite and love the amazing turning speed and drift and performance on waves and flat water.
If you are an experienced kiter you will prefer the TRX for wave riding, tricks, kite loops and free ride. Ideal for riders after a super agile responsive kite with less pull you off your surfboard grunt.
