Does someone know when it s release ?


"Starting in January we will be releasing the new RPM, Fuel, and Turbine kites along with the rest of our surf and twin tip boards. The 2014 RPM is our most refined kite ever. We made improvements and subtle refinements focusing on improving the performance and durability of the design and added a new 11m size to the line. Our light wind kite, the Turbine, will maintain its Open Delta C platform but it did go through some big refinements to improve its range and performance."

Time to update my 2011's. Now just have to figure out what sizes for a 220 lbs er. If they are better than my current 2011's I'll be really happy. These kites have totally transformed my kiting! Love my 10 and 8

Does it still say Nigga when you are riding it?

:lol: ...that's the funniest graphic "oops" that still makes me chuckle when I fly it. "nigga? that's right, now let's do this..."

But, based on the picture, looks like the new font takes care of it. We'll just have to fly it and see!

Psyched to try the new sliders out, though, among other tweaks.

I demoed a 7m yesterday in gusty winds. I have a quiver of '11,'12 and '13 RPMs...each year just seems to get smoother and keeps the same dependability. On the water it flies pretty similar to previous years. The new bar is great, there wont be any more complaints about below bar depower being difficult. A bigger cleat releases better and gives more leverage.

New graphics are sick

On the beach, there's more dacron on the TE as promised. I think they also took some off of the wing tips too but not positive. The bridal is awesome. No more dyneema, its all the blue leader line material.

All in all, its going to be another good year for the RPM

i can be wrong (do not ride it much - just a 4 times with not a perfect wind) but new 10 behaves more closer to a C than 2012 (dont ride 10 2013 though)
