It seems to have 41cells which is high for that shape. Kite has conventional 4 line rows, D-ribs and a lot of span wise strapping. Wingtips are thinner, more swept back than FS has usuallly had.

Bridle spacing is something like 1-3-1-3..., which makes primary lines short and overall look clean, it is a good compromise for sure. Air intakes are located evenly which I've always preferred. Wingtips have 12 cells after last air intake, which may take some time to inflate.

Kite looks very good :thumb: Interesting to see how FS foil kite lineup will be, if it is over for Speeds. Cell count suggest it is, this new kite is a very serious thing.

I think the current sizes are great expect for the 9m and then 6m. I think that is too large of a gap, I would prefer a 7m and 5m or a 7.5m and 6m, something like that. I realize that they do not sell a ton of the small kites, but going from a 6m to a 9m is a big step. Now with foil boards, you don't really need a crazy amount of wind for a 5m, 7m or 9m.
