contra comes in 15 + 17 but requires a different bar to the other kites =/

love the new colors on the 2014 cab's though.

I guess the Switchblade is officially dead as well. 2013 sucked with no low end and felt like flying a wet noodle. Looks like it's been bumped from wake style to mowing the lawn style. "performance" freeride? I hope the kite isn't a let down like the 2013.

It is not a real Bow-kite anymore. If you like that you can best buy the 2012 Switchblade allthough the 2014 will have the same low-end as the 2012 and really faster turning because of the elimination of the pulley's in the main bridle.

we will see about that, whats the point of having a switchblade if it has no power like the old ones, rather have something quicker...i still have my 2012, and find myself looking for other bow kites when it blows up in the waves, obsession/xr3 maybe? want that grunt and hangtime package, only thing the 2012 sucks at is looping

That will be nice if the 2014 has the same low end as the 2012. I just don't get it Cabrinha, why fuck up something that works? I never had any problems with looping a SB or any other kite for that matter.
