* Why Is the 10m Screamer LTD not In the regular Screamer line up?

 - We used the same plan but the profile on the 10m is totally different than the other Screamers. Actually, we use the Screamer 10 LTD as our test pilot for our next generation of kites. So the 2011 Screamer 10 LTD is actually a preview of what could come in 2012.

* You promote this kite as being as powerful as any 12-meter kite on the market. Why would you recommend a rider get the 10 meter LTD versus the 12-meter Screamer?

 - If your weight is between 145 to 180 lbs. and you are looking for a one kite quiver, then the Screamer 10 LTD is perfect for you. It’s as powerful as any other 12m kite on the market - in 15 knots you will be able to have a blast on the Screamer 10 LTD. Now you are probably wondering why not get the 12m Screamer instead. Well, the answer is very easy. The 12 is very powerful and feels like a 14-meter kite but moves like an 11.5-meter kite. So In 25 knots, you will be way overpowered. The 12 Screamer is very good from 13 to 25 knots but then after that, it is too much. The Screamer 10 LTD is very good from 15 to 30 knots, but the fun will start at 18 knots and get better the higher the wind gets. If you are over 200 lbs., then the 12m wf* be the kite to get as a one kite quiver from 17 to 32 knots or go with the Screamer 10 and 14.

* Some changes were made to the canopy profile and struts. Please explain what changed and why the changes were made.

 - We made a few changes on the canopy to make it even better than 2010. We also made the tips of the struts more cone-shaped in order to increase the stability of the trailing edge and give a more direct feeling from the kite. Just give it a try and you will see what we are talking about.

* What level of rider and style of riding is best suited for the Screamer LTD?

 - It is more for an advanced rider that is into the big air. freestyle, and powered moves. 8y changing the knots on the corners of the wing tips on the leading edge, it will bring the kite more towards the window or lower and will increase/decrease bar pressure. The Screamer LTD is also excellent for racing because it shoots way upwind.

* For 2010 Screamer LTD fans, what will be the most noticeable changes on the 2011 LTD?

 - The 2011 version has more reinforcements than 2010. Also, the power is more direct so you feel one with the kite, especially when you unhook. Riders that have tried the 2011 10m Screamer have told us that it has more hang time. The wind range is unchanged.

* How about turning, relaunch, and unhooked ability?

 - If you thought the relaunch on 2010 was easy, then 2011 is even better! Unhooked performance is also something we really worked on - the kite just feels perfectly trimmed and ready for your input. The speed/turning is the same as last year.

* Were any changes made to the bar?

 - The bar is now white and the center hole in the bar is more oval to minimize the wear and tear on your lines. AJso. the depower on the kill switch was increased 20 cm so now when you release the chicken loop, the kite will depower 85% instead of 75% like the 2010 model.

* What is your warranty policy on the kites?

 - If something happens to the kite, riders just need to get in touch with us. We were created for riders and will see how we can help you best.

* Anything else you'd like to add or highlight about the Screamer LTD?

 - Yes. do not underestimate its power!

  • Twi kiters having fun testing for the first time the new FEATHER 6.5 m kite on there foil boards.  They could not believe how amazing this kite was. Actually one of the Kiters told me I don’t need to say anything, let the kiters demo the kite and they will buy it once  they try it 🤔😏👍. #epickites #feather #kitefoiling
  • This is our new model coming out this summer.  The  FEATHER kite was designed specifically for kiters that love to use their Foil Boards.  The FEATHER comes in 3 sizes (6.5m/9.5m/11.5m) and only in one color.  You don't need bigger then 11.5m because the 11.5m is so powerful.  We were actually able to foil in (6 to 10 knots max) using a big wing under our foil board (see photos of that day)
Not only that but wait until you see the pricing on these kites 😲👍 .
So if you are looking for a kite to use with your Foil Board make sure to get your hands on the FEATHER kites.  Will have a small production run coming out this summer so if you are interested you can always get in touch with us vial email or FaceBook so you can preorder your FEATHER kite.  Will have more info very soon on our EPICKITES.COM web page. #epickites #kitesuring #foilboarding
