Yes, I'm hot to get the 20 and 16 or 14.

why are you buying a 16 and a 14 they have a very close range


I said 16 or 14, but I do share my kites with my wife Jacky, so I end with with all of them usually.

they wil be like the X2's, but maybe has more lift for jumps. We wil see...

I guess 20-14-10 is a great setup.

If North doesn't have a new bar with a good safety and quick release, you should buy any of their kites to let them know, that it is not about power anymore and would be a disrespect towards Silke( she was North team rider and had no quick release...)

So 100% sure they will bring out something good.

Hopefully in about 2 weeks I can test it myself.

Whoever has the change to test it please let us all know!

I am riding north kite for 1 year now I use there bar with a snap shakel wihtout a leash and for the depower I have staneless still ring so if i am in trouble I realese the snap shakel and the kite goes away and i stay alive
I am surtan that the rhino2 is going to be the "best kite in the world"(riders that have tested the kite and compared it to the x2 but thay said that the x2 is a very good kite) like the beginig of 2001 I am getting my new kites(20,16,12) at the end of the month rumer says that the kites will be in europ mid sept .

sagi, most of us use a snap shackle, but it is up to the kite manufacturers to offer these powerful kites with according safety systems.

I bet the Rhino will be very good!

Enjoy it

Hi,

Seems that the Rhino2 is available middle of September in Switzerland but without the bar.

I can't wait

the safety system of Naish X2 is good.

The quick release works so far and the kite will be safe when the quick will be pulled.

But just saw today that somehow the leash didn't hold the kite. It looks like the plastic connector of the safety line to the harness broke. Because one guy let go of the bar and didn't use the depower so the safety was pulled but the kite flew away, since the safety didn't hold the kite.
So nothing is 100% safe.

But if you want to do rotations and still use a leash, it is not good.

Just seen a picture in Kiteworld magazine of Jimi ******* of North with what looks like a new North Bar, the photo was from the Gorge Games.
