Does anyone know the lengths of the upper spreaders for an MEFM? I know there are two different spreaders depending on how you configure the kite.

+1.. can measure mine later. One of mine actually came with 2 of the shorter US's accidentally. Been meaning to cut a new longer one unless someone has one they'd swap. I believe they're within 2-3 cm of each other.

Thank you very much. I have one spreader, I just didn't know which one I had.

Just flew BE MEFM today. My long top spreader is exactly 56.2 cm
and shorter one is 53 cm on the button.
Glad to join this forum and ask if anyone knows where I can go for MEFM
parts, specifically the leading edge upper spar.
Disassembling the kite I stepped on it. I didn't get mad. No, no.
Took a deep breath and just threw up.
HELP !

The MEFM's upper Leading Edge is Avia G-Force UL but hard to find today...  Sad

Ask Goodwinds perhaps.

Yes, standard MEFM from Big Easy.
Thanks for the Avia heads up. I'll call Goodwinds today.
