We have a user that created a nick on the forum on the 28th ... the only post he ever made is to "inform" us about spleen allegedly financial wreck. Doesn't that sound a bit weird...

Even if it was true; what is the main purpose of your post Mr Yesindeed.... you seem like a frustrated person that wants revenge.

And honestly if it is none of your problem, why do you post this in the first place;

No - ram airs are aerodynamically inferior compared to inflatables. This is a verifiable fact. If anyone wants to know the reasons, I'm happy to post them...


Please do! More people need to know, and this thread needs an upside or it's just going to be a waste of bandwidth.

Doesn't Spleene have a RAM air kite hype? Certainly one must have crashed somewhere in 2012. Must have been 40 kg of air in the kite dragging it down to the bottom of the sea.

to be honest: I just wanted to post it under this thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2377796 (health of the kite-industry). Bad mistake to open a new thread, but that shit happened. I'm new to this forum and maybe not used to some techniques. But funny to see how people react. The spleen guy sent out his friends.
Nevertheless, I don't want to add fuel to the fire. Things gonna go their way without this forum.
Écoute bien, spleen

@yesindeed - Welcome to the Forum! :thumb:
There is a right bunch of opinionated passionate kiters here.
As you will quickly realise the brand love riders have for one brand over another is fascinating.
It makes no sense to new or non kiters, but it is very real. Almost tribal but it's non localised.
It is in itself a measure of a brands success.

I have brands I love & hate, some I will jump to defend without reason and some I wish the success of 1000 staff ;)

It is not just limited to brands, all media is owned including this forum.
This is still the best forum out there I have found and it survived the rise of the evil FaceBook.

The message you delivered is welcome, you might just have saved some importers many thousands of dollars. Importers take the lions share of the risk in this sport.

Welcome aboard :D

If you own the company you should try put forward positive stuff on forums and we will listen as you position is the one we are interested in.


Hi,

good idea. Our importers advised me to this thread, because we have no time at the moment to check forums etc. We are so busy with setting up the new products for next season that we even forgot to update the company info at our facebook fan page, but now it´s done. :D

Right now were are working together with our production places to get the new boards within this year and we are confident that it will come true. We have spent the whole summer to bring our ideas into the new shapes. Our focus was to increase the grip and gliding performance of the jet bottom (channel at bottom side). After some very different prototypes we found a really good balance between performance and comfort. Another target was to reduce the weight and optimize the flex in all directions. Here we analysed the 3D-shape and modified the profile in total.

The new website is also in progress and will be updated soon.

Our new kites are nearly finished too and ready for serial production.

We are sure you will like the new Spleene products etc. and our importers can´t wait to get the new stuff. :wink:

Please check Facebook & our website to stay updated for the launch.

Thanks

Ciao

Rainer Kauper
