There is more spanwise strapping than ever (?) seen in foil kites. And why not, to transfer loads more to the inside of a kite makes skins smoother and perhaps makes kite less mushy feeling. Kite looks very smooth and it is not hard to believe it is fastest turning FS kite so far like they have claimed.

Profile of the kite looks quite thick, which suggest very good stability and good lift and steady pull. Kite has at least moderate canopy curve which means lesser PA but also better turning (less pivotal, more power, faster), suggesting kite will be fun to fly.

Available full kite size range hints this kite will replace Speeds, there might not be much room left between Soul and Sonic.

I did a quick study for a kite with observed and questimated specs of FS Soul, it shows how D-ribs and bridle can be for that cell count and bridle spacing (not quite precisely however due to some difficulties).

Ok, thanks for info. Ozone has Hyperlink, Chrono and R1, and FS Soul, Speed and Sonic, it makes sense in that respect. And of course Speeds have been very successful kite serie.

However I think it is a bit strange that FS has big kite sizes of all three of them, Ozone does not have big Hyperlinks.
