Question for you Doc LW
The wingtips of the cloud are inflated or battens ?
In your opinion could they build a 21m2 version of that smallish (in my opinion where i kite) 17m2 ?
True one pump indeed
The wingtips are inflated through the leading edge as you pump also,
as they're very rigid continuation of the LE once inflated.
I think the 21m would reach the diminish of no return principle IMO,
and might need to overcome the range, lesser upwind and higher bar pressure attributes,
which might show on the 21m Cloud in the mid to high end VS 21m Speed3.
The relaunch wouldn't be a problem since I did it 3 times today in seconds,
testing the 17m in a 7 to 9 mph winds
The 21m turning speed and sailing downwind would be better than anything out there probably.
