Flysurfer kite foils are very special type of kites for the same fact of being a foil. Flysurfer kite foils possible profile trimming changes.
For not having any hard/rigid part on its profile, we will be able to alter this profile and therefore, the behaviour of our kite can be adapted to our riding preferences.
In the following diagrames we will see the different trim possibilities, how can be achieved and which will be the results of our choice.
When your Flysurfer kite it is trimmed on the figure under this lines, the kite is set in its highest angle of attack to the wind, which means the kite becomes more powerful but slower. This setting is the most adequate for lower winds.
This is the standar trim, the kite fly fast and pulls enough, For this setting we should trim the 4 knots on the same level.
On the next figure the kite flies the fastest possible but pulls the less, therefore if we want to achieve the maximum power we should steer the kite the fastest through the wind window.
This configuration means B knot is a little longer than A knot and C knot it a little longer than B knot, same thing with Z knot, just a little longer than C.
This setting is the most adequate for higher winds.
