Where is this rumor the Envy is replacing the NRG coming from? They are very different kites, and I know the NRG has a good following with the freeride / boosting riders. Seems like a bad idea IMO, NRG riders will probably go Switch Nitro or something, as most of them dislike the Envy (too slow).
I'm not sure that it is a replace, but rather the end of the NRG line. It has been widely reported that the NRG recieved no upgrades for the 2015 - sounds like someone has plans to put it out to pasture.

if you look at the video interview from jason selzak from liquid force he admits it has a huge following and says that he wanted to put all their effort into redesigning the envy. I think the future of the NRG is fine.
