Just the way it is!

I like that the gear comes out later in the year. It is 2014 gear after all and not 2014 in June like many other brands. Summer comes and everyone is lookin at buying 2013 gear but then comes the 2014 mid summer just after you buy 2013 and all the new models are always advertised "look at how much better this new 2014 is over the 2013 you just bought!!" BITE ME....... All mid season next year release kite companies can suck it!!!

can any Dealers or riders "in the know" comment about the VOlUME in LITERS of the Signature 510 and 6 ft...and while we are at it the Mitu Pro 510 and 6ft too please? It looks like they went ahead and put footstrap inserts on the Mitu Pro also in the few pics from Trade show will that be true for entire year production? thanx loads, sweet looking boards!!

Personally, I would have left out the inserts from Mitu boards. Dont see the point at all. Just more weight which no one wants.

how much could they possibly weigh?? in 2 years, when you want to sell it and buy the "newest" F1 creation and its a newbie who needs straps, youll be glad the inserts were there.

Top players are with next season offer in July-August, it is not by accident, 60-70% of the market belongs to them. Medium brands start to release their next line in September-November, that is also acceptable. Bottom level brands release their line after the NY booze :beer: :chorus: , also eligible. At the end of January China closes for their NY for a month or so and deliveries from factories start to arrive to Europe in spring - then come 2 or 3 months of the active season and then it ends. So with the last low part of kite players on the market their products cycle works less then half a year in action and I find it absolute crap :nono: if it does't take place all year round.
