OK, so you may have heard that "JoJo" translates nicely from german as "luff-luff".
Well I'm not about to deny that they have a tendancy for turning themselves inside out in gusty winds, but give this kite a little practice and a steady breeze and you will be thrilled. This is a kite that begs to be flown hard, and the power that you throw in on fast turns is hurled back at you fourfold.
In the smaller range the kites turn like stunt kites, easy to brake, turn and spin but with a scary ability to generate traction when you want it. As the kites get larger they hold onto their agility, and the power becomes stupid!
A buggy kite through and through, with little overhead lift and amazing downwind performance - you can see why a JoJo RM holds the current world buggy speed record.
Fly one today!
