Andy Preston bridle for Matrix

Wed Aug 26, 2020 3:03 pm

I had a realisation while tidying away some kites, that I have no experience of the original "really long turbo" bridle that came as an option with Matrixes - only ever flew with Carl's 3 point bridle.

Does anyone have dimensions for it ? Might even try a 3/4 version on a dot matrix !

Thanks - Tony

Hi Tony hope this helps from my notes :- for 3 point bridle upper 57.5,lower 57 and centre 62 cm (Flexifoil/Evolver/Kitestudio)
Andy Preston Turbo Bridle upper 79,lower 82.5 + 31.5 (+ point upper bridle line meets lower ) and centre 99.5 cm.
Airkraft bridle option upper 60 ,lower 59 and centre 64 cm.

Looking back thought Matrix to big and Dot to small?
