did you flew the r1 v2 ones?

and could you please weigh the kite? At the IkA List there is always no weight for the diablo :(

I have the 2016 diablo where it should be the same light weight material on the underside. as far as I know the main changes are aspect ratio, cell count and new bridle desin. Im looking for a back to back comparison of a v1 vs v2.
The Diablo 2 15m & 18m have a lighter material on the underside then the Diablo1
I believe that to be wrong. Look at the Web site and it even says that the "v2 has retained the lighter material for the underside that was introduced on last year's v1"
When the diabolo first came out it was the same material top and bottom. 2016 diablo had the light weight material introduced. 2017 v2 has the same material.
I'm looking at the kite and can see/feel the lighter material. Not too sure how much more evidence you need but it is definitely lighter.

Not trying to be awkward. Just that this is what font have said themselves. Maybe it feels different from a used kite to new kite?

Diablo v2 material is obviously different on the underside than Diablo v1 when you look at them side by side.

Yes no doubt. But the v1 changed last year. So early v1 vs v2 I can understand. But late v1 vs v2 should be the same. I guess I'll just have to look myself when I can.

Either way, all Diablos are extremely low weight, high performance race kites.

I thought the diablo was one colour combo per size. Not any colour in any size. Power kite shop may have it wrong.
