I've look at a post yesterday about having three riser, i was wondering what were the advantage-disadvantage of having that feature.
Thanx!

Form follows function! Wink

A new thought by a die-hard triple riser user: After seeing many of my contemporaries doing amazing rear-riser approaches and watching slow motion video replay of standard risers vs. triples, I may just switch back. While you really do have more "feel" with trips, and your tail does flatten out giving you a tad more aerodynamic advantage, the added friction of your control lines going back through standard guide rings distorts your rear risers, thus giving you rear riser input without even touching them! Previously, I would have thought this a distinct disadvantage. I now know that this actually assists in getting you around the corner.
