How exactly has the weight been reduced (no dacron on the canopy is great, anything else? Those strut ends metallic things look heavy!
Does the new valve need an adaptor like cabrinha's?
Ok, surface of the new 2014 rrd religion 10.5m is slightly higher than the 2013 10m² surface. but not easy to evaluate.
Weight is less than 0.2kg lighter, between 0.2 and 0.1kg.
The strut ends "metallic" aspect were already there last year.
Honestly, the 2014 kite is in the same trend than last year. The feeling is more smooth, and for me the 10.5 is mainly "lighter" in the the bar and the air than the 2013. But as the briddle are different, I would say this is most impacting than the weight of the kite by itself.
Really a good light wind wave kite for me (70kg).
