softer frame for more power in the turn rather than Rebel's regular pivot turn.
hope it sits deeper in the window too though as 2013 was such a disappointment that i didn't even try 20014

The blue is the same colors as the Juice and the greens are the same as the dyno (or at least one panel is). Nether is dull.

The 2014's rocked. Doubt the 2015 will sit deeper in the window since they said they worked on the upwind performance (which already rocked) even more. Glad they are looking to lighten them up a bit. Always forget how burly they are until I launch a few other kites.

Also unless you are a heavy dude (200+) or looking to do airstyle don't bother buying a rebel larger than 12m.

He's right, they brought some of the old 2011/2012 feel back in 2014, but again more refined.

2013 agree...played around at the margins too much.

I have a 2013 12m rebel and really like it .It jumps really well and has better hang time than earlier models. Initially it does feel like it has less low down grunt than previous models but once you get used to the kite theirs no difference in the amount of wind you need .
The upwind ability of this kite was alot better than previous models. I also own a 2011 8m and was thinking of trying to get a 2013 8m to get more height and hang time when jumping .I would be interested in any feedback from people who have used the small 2013 rebels for jumping.

Makes sense and thanks for answer! Yes more power in turn would be nice.
About lack of grunt... glad I stayed on the fence for 2013/2014 (love my 2012 Rebels)

Yes this I know. Its a 6'er.

Get your ass out there and test the final product. Stop cruising the forum!

Loaded 5th too.... Oh this is a game changer!

Little smaller LE

No pulleys... kind of hybrid bridle.

Wing Tips look like its 2011 roots.
