does anyone know when they will come out to the public. I can't wait too long for my Mach2


I will have the first Mach2's 12 in about 10 days. It will be a limited order. If you have problems getting hold of one, let me know. I can reserve one for you.

Raphael Salles told me that the 12 turned out to be 'too good'! He is testing a few protos 16 which are quite good, but he will only put one in production once it can match the performance of the 12 :wink:

This info is a few days old.

How about an 18 or 20 ?

Does anyone know of a vendor with trade-in programs? I would like to upgrade my Mach1-12+18 into Mach2s....

Thanks,
j.

Hi Jido,

There are no 9.1 15.1 and 18.1 in the Mach 2 more. Only the Mach2 12 and Mach2 16. The Mach2 12 will replace a little of the 9.1 the hole 12.1 and you can ride even fast like the 15.1. The range below (don´t know what are the right words) is great! And offcourse the Depower.
I don´t know something about the 16! Check the topics aboven for the story about the 16 en 12 (from Mike).

So go for the 12 and 16 Mach 2 or maybe Dream and you´ve a great range!

Regards,
Jorrit

I have been to France last week, presentation of the new product line. unfortunately my french is not good and their english is not good either but I know more now...

Mach 2, only 12 meter for now. The 16 still only proto-types, they are working on it but still not as good as the 12 meter. The 12 meter I, 65 kg and 140 twintip, can kite with it from 14/15 knots till 25 knots. But for real jumps I need 15/16 knots. This kite has a real looooooong airtime, you go up and land 10 meter later then you will ever expect. Also the depower is amazing. Steering compared with the Mach 1 is more smooth, easy to kite and jump.

Dream 9 meter, this kite is really a power machine, lower AR then the Mach, but full of power, it sais 18 till 30 knots, it is right. Good power jumps and high transitions with 17/18 knots and I hold it till 27/28 knots. Not too fast and really stabile and fluid steering, perfect wave riding. Only the 9 for now, working on the other sizes and will come some months later.

Source 9 meter, looks a lot like the Wipi classic, deeper, AR of 2,5 and perfect for lessons from 8 knots. Also the latest proto-type and they think it will be ready in a few months.

Magic 2, some small things changed, less weight of the kite, solid contruction. Did not kite withbut looks really good.

Have been filming and took a lot of pictures during the last 3 days in France, will try to get them on-line asap.
