Anyone flown it? Seen it at Paris?
Is it 7 or 5 inflatable strut?
Does it have trendy carbon struts in the tips?
Anyone seen a bar yet?

Fanx.

Cheers fella, I got the same and it's hard to tell what's going on at the wing tips from the photos. I do know that they are using Dacron like the Aero/Cab/North wings which is a good call. Also the sizes are 'surface area' so the 14.3, pictured, is like a 10.5 Wipi AB. a very sweet size and could be an awesome kite if it is any improvement on the 10m AB... ie: Massive wind range, very stable and much more floaty than the old AB. Just hope it don't jellyfish as much as my 10m AB : roll:

I should know more soon and hope to get a couple to test next week or so. :grin:

yeh, keep us posted ...

when you look @ the second photo, it looks like there are 5 ribs and no struts in the tips.

i'm curious about the bar, too....

I beleive there are no spars in the tips. it looks like Bruno has also reduced the depowering ability of this kite over the original air blast range. I'm not sure of the asymetric panel cut and how the material will behave after stretching, but its good to see a design which breaks from the normal run of the mill stuff thats out there at the moment.
