Conclusion

Performance kite with good light wind foiling & big air characteristics.

Tested the Fury with a hydrofoil in light wind and a twintip above 16 knots. For the hydrofoil. We liked user range of the Fury. In light wind conditions the Peter Lynn Fury 13m performed pretty stable with a soft power control. In it's high end range, above 16 knots, we took a twintip board and the Fury became a big air kite with an explosive lift and sheet / go power.

Rider profile?

We believe the Fury 13m is suitable for riders who like to combine foiling in light winds and high performance jumping if the wind picks up.

Basics

Safety system

Difficult Easy

Hard to release without kite pressure, try the safety set up before you go out!

Kite stability

Unstable Stable

The Fury like to seek the edge of the windwindow, makes upwind tacking easy, but needs more flying experience in gusty winds

Total depower

Still pressure Total depower

The Fury has a large range, with the hydrofoil in low winds and twintip above 16 knots a great big air kite

Kite re-launch

Difficult Easy

Easy relaunch, backward relaunch possible (pulling steering lines with light winds)

Windrange

Limited Wide

Oldskool

High-end

Small range Large range

long depower stroke, sheet & go control above 16 knots

Glide phase

Short Long

Above 16 knots, make sure you pump the leading edge real hard!

Lift

Gradual Explosive

pretty explosive in the high end wind conditions

Low-end

Small range Large range

Used the kite in 8 knots and a hydrofoil Tip: add 3m adjustment lines

Wave

Turning circle

Large radius Small radius

The Fury is best in locked position and ride. Turning takes a bit time than a low aspect ratio kite

Feedback at edge of wind window

Minimal Great

On the edge light barfeel in low end conditions, high end stronger feedback on the bar

Reaction to steering action

Slow Fast

The Fury likes to be locked in one position and control through sheet & go power. A bit delay in the steering action

Steering with low line tension

Not so good Good

Drift

Poor Good

Good drift and the Fury likes to widen its wind window. This combination makes the Fury stable in gusty winds, big gusts need a bit experience of the rider

Race

Kiteposition in wind-window

Middle Edge

Acceleration

Slow Fast

Likes to accelerate to the wind window, nice sheet and go power if locked in one position

Going upwind

Hard Easy

Widens its window
