"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
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
