Wainman.... are they still alive? Started up promising to dissapear from tge beaches a few years later.
I also thought they were gone. Haven't seen any for years. Never tried one so hard to say but apart from the fresh graphics their shape looked out-dated, no single inflation , limited choice of kites in their range.
It's a c-kite, they are probably just trying to offload them since people don't really buy them. There are great deals on c-kites all over the place, especially used. I picked up a 13/9/7 quiver of current-year fuels with 2 bars, basically brand new for just over $1000 total a couple years ago.
I love Wainman Rabbits and I need to replace my 9m Smoke...
Those kites are expensive but when I took a look at the WH online store I realized that the Maniac kite has a great discount.
Maniac 8 w/ bar: 609€
Smoke 9 w/ bar: 1540€
Is the Maniac not much appreciated between freestylers?
Hey! I saw some deal on the Wainman kites at Jupiter kiteboarding
I ride Wainman Rabbits and Maniac. The Maniac is a straight up C-Kite. Its great, for the hard core freestyle, Or big wind kiteloops.
I have the 11.5 and 8m. But i honestly much prefer my Rabbits for all round riding, much more forgiving and versatile. The rabbits have much more range also.
I think they are selling off stock to get ready for the new season. I dont think the Maniac Did well in a competitive market of freestyle kites.
