Super thin struts and leading edge. Itr must be the lightest kite per size of all the inflatables at the moment? The profile also looks quite flat, giving less drag and more speed I suppose?
I'd love to test it with my hydrofoil, since it looks like the only kite optimised for the characteristics of a hydrofoil. How is the downwind drift of the kite compared to modern surf kites? Probably good due to the low weight?
@ChristoffM, sorry but I didn’t see your post until now. I don’t know if the Notus is the lightest kite at the moment, honestly I didn’t do a good comparison with other brands. The Notus has a good downward drift and doesn’t just fall out of the sky when for example riding a wave, it’s a very stable kite and ideal for wave riding.
@maigueri, some differences are: (If you like to freestyle more than your better off with the Krush.)
Bat Trailing Edge: New design of the trailing edge prevents the aging of the kite. Indeed, most of the kites have a straight trailing edge, which creates a weakness when the kite flutters on the beach. This year, the line of the trailing edge will be in intermittent lines.
Deflating Valve: There is a new deflating valve on the tip, allowing a deflation and a folding of the kite super quick and practice.
Shorter Bridle System: This new bridle system is 30 percent shorter : a shorter bridle system ensures more reactivity and more maniabitity and its capacity to sheet-in quicker.
New Reinforcements / Strengthened Construction: New PVC material for patches strengthening segments of the leading edge. The "Backbone structure" bring an unequalled kite solidity, in particular with dacrons reinforcements on tips.
