How About Throwing in the Mania C to the equation. The fuel possibly one of the best ever C kites ever developed and two newcomers to the market.

What could be expected when at least one (could be more than one, there are so many new riders :lol: ) of their new team riders looks like a "reincarnated" Ruben Lenten.

It has a similar shape, but its leading edge is twice as small. It also has attachment points moved a bit more forward. The Wainmann looks like a Fuel as well. Seems like there are limited options to make a 4 line C kite with rear line relaunch.

@Kiteus polius

Good point, nice to see people push something different

@Nikalaitzian

Haha I expected them do come up with a new kite

I have a feeling that this extract is just an excuse to put a famous riders name on a kite and sell kit. Bit of a slap in the face to make a megaloop kite in a 11 and 13 size

@jedi 1

I guess the thin leading edge is due to the new quben fibre. Have you flown the extract? Any comments on it?

The Fuel is a much better kite. The Extract's thin leading edge means it backstalls when turned up quickly and feels very unstable. The Wainman jellyfishes like a mofo and is not even in the same league. Fuel hands down.. no affiliation.
