Well the Nemesis HP is long overdue a redesign, it's time we had a new high jumping, hard pulling, ass kicking, surface to air missile in the line up. So a new kite for Ruben would be a great fit for BEST.

I can't imagine Ruben liking any kite that has a bridle.

I'd like to see them develop kites and a board for 50 knots+ for Ruben, maybe with sub 20m lines.

He seems to be doing a one-man Storm Chase for Red Bull at the moment and it would be interesting to see him out in 50 knots+

When we say HP replacement we mean with respect to where it sits in the line-up and who it appeals to, not the actual structure of the kite, bridled, cuben or whatever. It could actually be closer to the GP than the HP from a design point of view.

Time will tell. ;-)

Be interesting to see if you can make a Fuel like, four line, non bridled C kite.
Best, Airush, North, Switch, Naish (whoever else), all decided to bring a C kite to market with a fifth line.
Why is the GP a five line?

More stability in the le? Even when you make the le thin.

Yep, I understand why they all felt they had to make what they made.
So, what makes sq22 think Best are going to just knock out a Fuel now that Ruben is on the payroll....or why didn't they do it last year, if they felt it was a viable goal?
And if they do, who are they making it for?...Ruben?..some customer base that doesn't already own a GP? ......or....

Glad to see another company committing to making a four line non bridled C kite.



I didn't say we were going to make a 4-line C, I said we would make a new kite for Ruben, as of yet no one including Peter knows what that will be. Too early to say.
