its a delta kite like the f one bandit, having flown the f one today i have to say its better than bows hands down, although its still not got the full feeling of a C :wink: . its a good kite though...

@Slim:

The T9 is NOT a Delta kite! Take a look at the Fone site to really understand the concept. I have been affiliated with RRD till very recently when I migrated to Royal, why I have followed the development of the T9 closely and been in contact with the dev. team. The kite is High curved ARC low aspect SLE kite.

Still need to try the Fone - looks interesting as a compeditor for the bow concept, but have a hard time seeing how this should make kites better that the really good SLE kites out there. Time will tell :)

maybe not fully delta in shape but very close and bridle looks the same. so i can see it performing with the same style as the delta concept
