With the Evo SLS when you swing the kite up and let it flow and sheet in the bar, you will realise the lift the kite creates is very stationary, so you are not getting pulled downwind with the wind, you are hovering at one point. The kite has a huge tendency to fly against the wind and in some cases, you can even soar with the kite. If you are on a dune and jumped, you would begin to fly almost like a paraglider. So, when you go for a high jump, you have to adjust your jumping technique in a way that you should let the kite shoot up a bit further over your head, to create the lift that it wants to create. This might sound a little complicated, but you just have to remember the kite wants to fly up and against the wind and this makes jumping different. With the right technique the jumps are insane! With this in strong winds, you go super vertical and in combination with the hang time you have extremely high and long floating jumps. If you use the kite for mega-loops, the turning speed and the way the kite hooks you up as it’s completing its loop, it's really nice and intuitive. I would also say it is punchy, it creates a lot of horizontal pop, but it also catches you really nice. When I listen to the feedback from Lasse or Aaron, I would say it's their preferred kite of the moment together with the Dice when it comes to mega loops. It's worth to keep in mind that the Evo SLS may require some different technique and you may require a few hours to adjust, but the benefits are quite incredible!
Great, thanks for taking the time to take us through everything Ralf, I believe you’re off to Cape Town now for more testing! It's very much, yes, I can't wait to get to Cape Town and jump on the Evo SLS and the other models soon and give them a spin!
