And the guy that said the edge is a delta kite that is a bow kite....seriously!
What part of that kite is delta! I'd never touch it if it did.
I think the crossbow may be the girl left at the dance on this one. Crossbows have traditionally been the more popular kite here, and I think they could make the velocity with a little more beef and call it the 2014 crossbow, but I don't think so. Sad because the crossbow helped change kiting when it came out.
Now for the quality of the velocity, I don't think there will be as many issues with the light build, as we have had the kite out in some very overpowered conditions, I think it will hold up fine. We even had one slam into the beach, no problems.
I've now ridden the 11m from 10mph to 35mph (145 lbs). Obviously not the best wake style, but just pure I want to ride, this is one of the best kites out there.
