New Best Flat Kite - Need Name - HELP!

Postby gumball » Fri Nov 18, 2005 6:23 pm

Please click here - http://forum.bestkiteboarding.com/viewtopic.php?t=1007 to vote in our poll to help us decide on a name for the new Best "Flat" Kite!

Image

We are in the final stages of testing and prototyping the new best "flat" kite. We've been waiting in the wings, observing and testing every other brand's flat kite down here in Brazil and we think we've come up with an amazing kite. It minimizes the negatives found in most "bow" type kites (bar pressure, inverting, sliding through turns, cumbersome bridles, complicated bars and perhaps most importantly, PRICE) and maximizes the positives (total safety & de-power, lift, hangtime, turning speed, responsiveness & re-launch).

But we need your help... We need to decide on a name for the kite.

Image

Everyone in the office has narrowed it down to either Allura or Waroo. Both words come from an Australian Aboriginal dielect (like Yarga). Allura was the name of a tribe from the Northern Territory and Waroo is the Aboriginal word for "fire" (it is also the name of a fish found in Brazil, but that is unrelated to the Aboriginal history of the word).

So help us out and vote for your favorite.

The Waroo or Allura will be available in 2006 and we anticipate the kite to start at $499.

Hey Gumballs, I’m very curious to find out what has Best changed on the LE bridles? From the attached picture the bridles look very similar to other flat kites out on the market. (i.e. I have flown the Cabrinha & Slingshot flat kites) Tx, Dano

Tx, Dano

Rest assured, the Waroo or Allura pictured will not be one of the production colors. Our factory sends us a lot of orange prototypes, guess they overordered that color, although the orange/white Yarga Pro does look hot. My personal favorite is the Black/Pink Yarga. See below for all the color options for the 2006 Best Product Line-Up...

DISCLAIMER: These prices have not been finalized, but this is what we're thinking kite only:

7m $499
9m $599
12m $749
16m $899

P.S. sorry to those of you who paid $1,600+ for a bow kite...
