And finally, front line flagging. Me like. I guess only for this kite though.. but good anyway.


What makes you think they have no Pulley's?
The VMG's I have seen had Pulley's.


Below is where i got it from...

First post in the thread..

RickI wrote:...The Velocity is a pure race kite developed for and by racers. Despite that it has some nice attributes for normal kiting too, like nice big, long duration jumps! Damo tells me the kite has lighter pressure, is faster and has easier turning, is higher aspect and constructed of superlightweight materials, uses a front pulley-less bridal and is registered for racing with the IKA. He tells me they put a lot of effort into fine tuning and developing this kite for 2014....

From the Velocity kite page
+ Direct bridling with no pulleys in the front lines

There will be pulleys on the back lines because you need pulleys to retain steering control at extreme depower angles.
