Hey Janne, no I'm not climbing the Mont Blanc with my kite or slalom through crevasses yet, although ot might be a new discipline one day
With regards of your comment on kiter skills, I agree with you about the complete different flying mode and skills required to get used to a race foil, but that is not the issue. You need to get the right kite for your riding style other than having to adapt to a different kite in order to gain the extra low end for your style..
To prevent tip curling is extra work, to manage gusts is extra work, and when you climb uou want to BE SAFE, you want to have stability above your head, not extra work. Beside you can work out by yourself that a Chrono 15-18 will have a turning radius way too big to allow you to loop in a steep environment (crevassees free of course!).
I can see from the videos that the V2 has been refined towards freeride, has been made more stable and less curling, the structure seems to be like an open cell in fact.
I could possibly do with a Summit 15 UL and a Chrono V2 18m to finish off my expensive quiver!
