interesting is the tube at the tips.
do you see any valve for it or will it be pumped up with the leading edge tube?
If so, will it be easy replacing or repairing the leading edge bladder?
We will see....

It looks similar to the F-One mach1, wide tips and a low profile.
It looks like it only has one line connection, not like the Aero two setups for faster and slower turning.

Toby, these pic's were taken by me on the 3rd, we have had Robby & Adam Koch in Dubai. The X2 has two connections for each line. The tip struts inflate with the main bladder.
The 20 and 16 has 7 struts plus the tip struts, while the 12 has 5 struts plus the tip struts. All X2's fly on the same bar +- 50cm and the 20 is a very fast responsive kite.

I posted more pic's on Yahoo groups under photo's last night.

Steve, thanks a lot for taking these pics!
I'm believing in the X2 as a great kite, but have to wait to test it. I will post my impressions in about 2 weeks. Did you see the new bar with safety system as well?

No, Robby was using what looked like a Aero bar and Adam had a customized bar. I guess that they will basically use the Aero bar with some minor modifications.
