Hi JN and dirkydiggler, JN, The V3 has inflation points for each strut and one for the leading edge, same as the V2.
dirkydiggler, The Hydra's have a unique system that has a separate leading edge bridle and trailing edge bridle, which Genetrix call the 'Supported Profile System'. The leading edge bridle has 6 attachment points to the LE and 4 attchment points approx 300mm back from LE on the 4 middle struts. The rear bridle has 8 attachment points, 2 on the tips and 6 approx 150-300mm in from all the strut ends. The rear bridle goes to the outside lines on the bar. Basically the TE bridle supports the flat shape of the TE in relation to the LE without having a bow shape to tighten the TE, and to provide accurate and sufficient changes in angle of attack over the whole projected area of the kite with acceptable bar movements.
The even number of struts is all part of making the 'Supported Profile System' work, and it works very well indeed, allowing very wide power control at the bar with NO PULLEYS anyware. This kite is the most stable and balanced I have used.
This system allowers a kiter to go out in sh!&&y 10-12knts and if the wind picks up over 25+knts, can still safely kite. As well as all the other advatages of a high depower kite
Cheers, the Windhogger
