Wait What... are you the man behind the Notorious XX Mash Up? If so - huge props to you my man. Great album.
To answer your question, we designed all of our 2012 kites to be the "best" at what we built them for, the Cypher was designed from the start to be an unhooked, ultra stable kite for the park, wake style riding or unhooked wave riding. As such, it was designed to fly extremely well off the back lines and not need the Venturi to help prevent stalls. Equally, the FST wing tips are designed to improve overall depower and turning speeds of the kites it is featured on. The Cypher
was designed to be an ultra predictable, stable kite - perfect for handle passes and unhooked riding, both of which do not call for the benefits offered by FST Technology.
If you are interested in the Venturi and FST Technologies I suggest you take a look at the other kites in the line up:
- Freestyle / Hooked in Wave - Razor
- Freeride / Big Air - Rise
- Light Wind - Flite
