Switch Combat V2

Postby Twitch » Wed Mar 27, 2013 1:28 am

When will it be out? I'm looking forward to getting it and dont want to pull the trigger on some v1's if they will be out soon. Considering they're going to no battens in the new ones, any other adjustments to the v2's?

Method V2 in 3 weeks, and the Combat V2 in production in about 4 weeks, as I was just on a chat with SWITCH.

What? method V2 has been out for a while. I have one.

They haven't released a date yet on combat v2, but I'd say within the next 2 months it should be out. If you want to see pics of it look on marc Jacobs facebook.

@Twitch1: Combat V2 is in production. Changes include inflato tip replacing battens, two front line attachment locations to adjust slack and de-power. Higher aspect ratio for 13 & 15sqm. Some other small spanwise AOA adjustments to place the kite in the optimal position to suit Marc's riding style.

@hurdstur1: Lots of rider feedback here on Kiteforum and in many regional forums around the globe + Switch website forum which is fairly active and Switch Facebook page.

@hurdstur2: Additional sizes of Method V2 now in production. 3-4 weeks for most Combat sizes to reach warehouses.

@Nectar: :thumb: :thumb:

@Twitch2: Marc has been testing CV2's for quite some time with a very good result in the last PKRA contest. We believe them to be very capable state-of-the-art contest-ready 'C' kites.
Cheers!

Thanks Bill... always great to hear from the designer.. .love the kites. have 2 methods and 2 nitros. keep up the great work. btw, since you are answering production questions, when will the new bar be out? parts warehouse seems to be out of certain bar parts for a while which makes me think the new bar is close. thanks.
