Re: Best introduces the 2009 Nemesis HP

Don't get me wrong. I'm not against progress and development but it should be based on measurement and fact, not marketing. Where is there any sign of measurement or fact in the Best material?

Re: Best introduces the 2009 Nemesis HP

This looks like more of the same bullshit marketing that Best are famous for. A new gimmick to help pump sales of the new season kites. What point is leading edge twist if the canopy is still hanging in one piece off the back of it? without a split in the canopy how is the leading edge going to rota...

Re: Zig-Zag LE's Reason please?

It's just marketing, something to differentiate a Naish kite from every other kite on the beach. In practice I think the negative effects of a longer LE and a discontinuous airfoil and the positive effects from a relocated center of effort are all completely surpassed by other design aspects (that a...

Will you buy fabric from cubic tech, buy cloth from a competitor or will there be a "design breakthrough" which supplants cuben just in time?

Is that black strip past the vent dacron?
Any more reviews?
It looks like a bit of mesh so that the air can pass through. I'm guessing its required to make sure the canopy maintains is overall shape.

I think the problem with the MTB style of clip-ins is that you don't have anything solid to push against to clip in. On a bike its simple - put the pedal at the lowest point and it will push back against the foot. On a board on the water it wouldn't be so easy.
