i like white, looks awesome in our blue sky of North Queensland, just keeping it clean is the issue here.

what about kites that glow in the dark, that be wicked. You would not have to come out once it is dark... :thumb:

Never mind the design or graphix, I a m talking about the colors.
I don't want to see any more neon colors or any more pink or yellow.
We should be abe to come up with more natural colors, no?

Or is it a problem with the material?
How about a carbon print?
How sick would that be?

Just to stir things up....
Not a big fan of the new RRDs then? Personally I like the 2 colour schemes on the left (red/pink/white + black/grey/white), while the last one black/yellow etc. is not really appeling to me..

theres no problem with kites colors, it's colors combination mostly.
kite's design has same path as e.g. snowboarders clothes: first there was pink and violet, then there's more natural colors ( olive green, beige, khaki, brown ).
but some kite designers chose different ways. for example ozone tries not to change this extremely dull and old color design as long as possible although kites performance is excellent. some other brands prefere "grannys underwere" color combinations and themes, I guess, trying to attract new customers by colorshock? 8)
