Just buy a freeride foil and feel free of that racekite crazyness.

Anyway I ride back to back with sonics 2 and r1v2 using my chrono v2 and although I'm not faster than them, lowend seems to be about the same. My freeride freeride ketos foil also helps a lot allowin low speed take-offs.

The racing arms race continues.

But it's good for all of us if it pushes the technology and keeps the used market flooded with good used racing gear...

It also mean you can pick up an R1V2 at a big discount and have an amazing kite!

I don't think so, they are made on demand if you want a Ozone race kite you have to wait 28 days.

Nah, foilkite prices are still held artificially high in the 2nd hand market.

Won't last for much longer I think though, with all major brands getting into foilkites, saturating the market.
