Anyone know why Sam Light uses both the RPM and Fuel? Is it purely for marketing purposes (asked by slingy to ride both) or does Sam actually see a particular use for each kite?


Check this video out and you will find the solution. He explains about it.

What's with the embedded handles on the Ankle Biter and Alien Twister? Mucks up the lines of a nice clean deck. And the Ankle Biter anyway...that thing is so stable you can walk all over the deck...now you have a handle/hole in the middle of one side you'll step on. Has anyone ridden it with the handle, is it annoying or a non-issue? It looks like the prototype pictures don't have it (which is nice.)

Other than the hole, the boards look sharp. The Rally graphics are pretty nice and an 11M is a popular size...so nice to have that in the mix now.

I know companies hate rumors and leaks but hey, a good leak about the RPM would either make me wait for the 2015 or stick to the 2014 but, cabs are out soon so why not changing the whole quiver... Leaks help me stick to the same manufacturer, North kept me for 4 generations of Rebels that way... So the rumor about the Fuel? You will be able to switch it from bridled to non-bridled 4-line pure C in seconds. So hold up thos Vegas, torch, c4 and other C kite purchase until you see what SS has in its sleeve...because once you comit to a model, you kite buying power will be funneled towards one manufacturer for one or two years. So any leak about 2015 turbine and 2015 RPMs?

Yeah, the 2015 RPM turns much faster than anything before it, jumps higher and comes complete with 'self inflate' technology. :jump:
