I think only people who have not tried the octopus have something against it. It is quit smart. And to open/close the strut valves takes only a few seconds. The new big valve on the Pivot is a nice feature too. Why reinvent the wheel ?
Like Taut I expected the Pivot to have less grunt (it have less than Park though). Really nice in the waves. Gonna be a tough choice between Ride and Pivot for strapless riding

I would consider to buy one if not for the octupus inflation system, each time you inflate or deflate the kite you have to close or open 4 valves, isn't it like that?

Eloico.

Yeah, real hassle.
I wouldn't bother for anything w/o self inflation and autorigging system. Even walking to the beach is pita.

Soo the Pivot....I think kite is an upset. The jumping is just a bonus. The wave performance ahh...

Does anybody know, if there is a new park in 2015 or does the pivot replace the park... I hope not...
Last year there were many pictures of parks/torches before the official announcment... Same with the pivot this year... At the moment there is nothing about a new park... So I´m wondering...
I prefer a kite which is good in all disciplins and the park seems perfect for me... wave, wakestyle, freestyle!

No the park is still in production as far as I know. Apparently it's moved more along the freestyle/ wakestyle spectrum with the pivot coming in with its surf capabilities.

Thanks Westozzy! I hope the park will be still great for waveriding. I like all disciplines and don´t want a specific kite for each... And hopefully they keep the static bridle, but a bit shorter :)

yeah it'll be a tough choice :-) The park this year was so good.
