Not Yet Niko, but I hear that its not based on the Airblast. The new designers (I hear) have started the design from scratch.

i tried the new wipika AMP 14 yesterday. i tried it for an haf an hour in 14 knots. (i'm 57 kg)
my impressions: i'm really very impressed with this kite. it is so friendly! it is reactive and has fast response and i noticed that it depowers very well (and for me light rider this feature is very important!). i cannot say anything about lift because of the wind not strong.
bye
andrea

Are you saying that are only 57kg and riding a 14 AMP in 14 knots and did not enough power to jump?

The AMP will not be replacing the AIRBLAST, the AB will be re-worked for next year ...
