What is the Geo Tech? I think I saw it written on the kite, but I don't know what it means...

Performance:
The 2008 Helix defines the natural evolution of using technologies to adapt the large depower range required in modern kites. If you are looking for the one kite to work in the widest range of conditions for all styles of riding, look no further than the 2008 Helix. The 2008 Helix emerges as the choice for intermediate through advanced kites seeking the highest performance ride that excels equally in all areas.

Stability, turning, wind range, jumping, upwind ability, free riding, kitelooping, speed, freestyle, waveriding, easy water relaunch, all benefit from the engineering innovations incorporated into Geo-Tech and Sigma.

The static canopy tension provided by Geo-Tech results in a super clean and defined profile that provides solid response thru the entire depower range, and results in a kite with the widest wind range of anything on the market. The Sigma outline provides two significant advantages, first it changes the center of effort in the kite such that this point does not change during the depower range, and secondly Sigma allows the kites wingtip to twist in a manner that initiates lightening quick turning.

The Design: Sigma Shape, Geo-Tech, Supported Leading Edge

Features: Octopus Inflation System, SLE 2:1 - 1:1 Control System, Tunable Bridle System

Sizes: 5,7,9,10,12,14,16

So despite the windrange, stability, easy relaunch, tunable bridle, free riding and upwind ability, beginners shouldn't buy it?

We would have to wait for all the specs in November, to bad!

Love the names,,, Geo-tech

Think geo as in geometric, if it works, very cool we have another step in the evolution of kites, if it doesnt or it pulls a hellfish and rips apart every time you smack it down, it could morph into geo as is geologic and become part of the fossil record.

The techno blurb sounds pretty cool though, I hope it all works.

I could do with a single kite that does it all. Hope it has decent ball so I dont need anything over a 12m !

The Cult is aimed at the beginner intermediate market.
