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?



Hi!!

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).

Regards.

Apparently yes. Curious to see what's new. V5 is nice but the double line flagging system worries me.

Hello,

The V6 bar is very similar to the V5.

"The version 6 of a great bar with a great history of performance and reliability. Unecessary items Have been taken out instead of being added, to make every component more functional. Simply put : “you cannot break what does not exist”. A bar is your cockpit in the water, not on the road or inside an airlplane. Everything must be there at your fingertips and must work instantly when you really need it.

No marketing gimmicks, No 3D videos to impress you behind the screen of a computer. A simple bar that works. Everyday. For long time.

Features:
- Composite Glass/Carbon Bar with hand sanded soft grip. Diecut graphic colors that do not fade in the sun.
- Rubber covered side caps to improve side grip and avoid damage
- Bar width adjuster.
- Double chamber hollow tube for de-power rope and safety line.
- Original Clamcleat™, not just another copy.
- 2 PARTS ONLY chicken loop safety release system.
- No rust and corrosion damage, EASY to reassemble!
- Rotoring system with “Iglidur” washers to untwist lines.
- Safety leash ring attachment, convertible into HP suicide leash.
- Industry reference exclusive 23 mts RIGID THREAD LINES, never stretch. Never loose trim."

The new part of the bar is the safety leash ring attachement, wich is now a real specific piece.
