Best GP V1 vs V2, same thing?

Postby _Kinouille_ » Wed Dec 19, 2012 6:31 pm

Hi guys,
Does any one know if there is a real difference between the Best GP V1 and V2 except the colors and the number after the V?
Thanks.

I heard V2 was the same as V1, but not from a very reliable source. I have only flown the V2 in a short demo.

Although graphics are a personal thing, I have to say, I love the graphics on the V1. When I look at the V2, I can't imagine how someone drew that up and said "that's perfect, send this to production!" Again, that's just me :D

There are huge changes to the GP V2, new double core rs material that makes it a little lighter and stronger than the 2012 kites

Tweaks to the kite for performance and handling characteristics have been added following R&D suggestions from pro riders such as Gisela Pulido. Gives better handling, better feedback at the bar with increase in pressure, and a bit more stability when unhooking

Quite a few of the UK riders didnt think there could be much change either as they loved the V1, but after first tries they said the V2 is an improvement on already a great kite.
