Can't find weight info anywhere.

They used to have weight info for each kite on the website and now they say the the cloth is 25% lighter, but not posting weight of the kite. So it is 25% lighter as a whole product? why this info is not published?

Thinner lines:
Though good news in general, it does present some safety issue as thinner line means more dangerous for you in the water and those who may potentially get in the way of lines under load.
Any thoughts on this?

Looking forward to try it. Been delaying getting a foil before trying speed4.

Thank you Ramon!
This is useful info, but still u did not provide a total weight for the lotus cloth based kite.
If i just take 33gr * 18 * 2 = 1.1 kg i will not get the total kite weight will I?
The 18M kite cant be 1.1 kg ?
There are bridles and stiching etc.

Could you please provide total weight for
15m , 18m and 21m ?

Also, wbat is the minimum wind speed each of them can stay in the air?
Do you have such stats?

Thank you very much.

F2k.

Just got my speed 4 12m. Kite and bar weighs in at 3.5kg kite and bridles only 2.3 kgs. The new material feels like a condom very smooth and silky. Haha. Looks like it will pack down using thick Velcro straps 20cmx20cm by 60cm
