The new Voyager have one strut and a higher AR. I would love to test the 15 mts kite.

That does look interesting!

Looking on the website, the single strut looks much thinner than some of the other single strut kites. good to see they have retained a strutless range as well (albeit in 2 sizes only)

Ive a few questions:

- Does that one strut have a "one-pump" system? Or you have to inflate it individualy?
- Also what is the diferent between the super-light and the special-edition? It seems the special-edition its even lighter because it does not have any strut... Which one will be better for foiling !? Its the special edition also higher AR then last model, or the special edition its closer to last year model?

Thanks

Both kites are dedicated for foiling but targeted at different riding preferences. I asked Sylvain some questions about 8m Limited Edition and here are his answers:

The kites will be available early july .
I dont have the exact weight ...but it may be around 1,7kg

You will find on the web site some up wind performance orientedkites (Voyager Light-speed 12 & 15 ) but we have kept the strutless design for the riders who just want to free ride and get the most responsive kite as possible... (I am one of those)
There is no pulley on the kite !
