Heyoo,

I had this all typed up and then lost it so I hope it works this time.

We haven't made too many drastic changes to the Fuel from year to year. And the same is true for 2013, we have left it mostly the same. However, we did increase the wind range on all of the Fuels this year. Especially the 11 and 13m sizes, we added more low end power in those larger sizes. The canopy seams were improved and re-structured to increase the durability even more. The 2013 Fuels look a little different cosmetically too this year.

I have really enjoyed flying my 2013 11m Fuel. It's the kite I choose when I want to strap my boots on and have a full on wakestyle-adrenaline-rush kite sesh. It's a ton of fun and always gives me all the power I need when I'm kiting. Hope that helps!

PS I have tried attaching a photo to this but not sure if it worked.

We also changed the bar up for 2013 as well. Made it softer, changed the colors of the bar to make it easier to recognize left (white grip) and right (black grip). There is now a full brushed aluminum center part of the bar where the lines go through. And this part is shaped like a little volcano so you can feel where the hole in the bar is without having to see where your hands are. This also helps keep your fingers from getting pinched in the lines as well.

You will get the new 2013 bar if you buy a 2013 Rally or Fuel.
