i just skimmed over this thread and there are 2 things that need to be mentioned:
1. all rabbit kites are still available in black. so if you don't like white kites, there is an alternative.
2. the bunny is a 5m^2 kite. the grafix fit perfect for smaller groms and women. if you're a grown up man all you need is a gipsy when its really nuking.
3. weather the rabbit theme is a joke or not, well, wainman is all about the fun in kiteboarding. if you don't like their marketing, "invest" in something else.
the kites can be trimmed in a lot of different ways from stock setup.
understanding the trailer right, the upcoming clips of gleiten.tv should explain the options.
and once you understand what setup does what, it should be easy to find a setup that suits your riding best.
the rabbits are great in the waves, killer kiteloopmachines, great for freestyle, great for wakestyle, great for oldschool (when ridden powered up), and great for going fast... they might not be the ticket to become olympic champion on a raceboard though.
so as it has been pointed out, they are verry versatile and can perform in the top leages together with the much more specific models of the competition.
there seems to be a demand for kites like the rabbits, because before wainman launched their rabbit series, there was no evo, no envy, no park,...
the whole low-aspect 3 strut-design deltaish allround kite craze started with the wainman kites. and none of the 3 struters i have tried so far can come close to the versatility and performance the rabbits still offer.
but their design seems to be really catchy, otherwise you guys wouldn't start arguing and almost fighting about it
