It is a very interesting idea, from a guy who has ideas that lead in good directions!

Looking at the website it seems the other big innovation of the last five years has been left out though: strutless and monostrit LEIs.
When you can get the weight of your HP kite down and the handling (fun) better you will have something.
As it is foil kites or a BRM cloud will be lighter and the cloud will handle much better (and some would say the foils too depending on preferences). Compare to BRM cloud 8.0m at 1.65kg.


All kites seem too darn expensive though, no argument on that.
How about some more c shape for handling, and simpler bridling?

Best wishes with developing this concept, who knows where it could lead!

A hybrid with low pressure LE tube, flatter arc, simpler bridle and a TE high pressure tube could be interesting, too...

Anyway, thank you for sharing the invention, can we please see it flying?

Hi Bruno!

Good to see you back on here !

Thx for posting it and thx for offering this new concept for free!

Interesting concept...just wondering how it performs and how to pack it. Are the hoses that flexible that they won’t break after a while of packing?

I also wonder if this will work for heavy guys like me.

Can’t wait to see a video of
It performing...don’t you have one already ?

Good to see a new concept.
Looks like it may fly as fast backwards as it does forwards.

The Nexus failed for many reasons.

It was too heavy. It would not fly in light winds and got overpowered very easily.

The bar system was not really well thought out. It needed to be flown like a 4Line handle kite with the front lines also involved in the steering.

Also the way of securing it on the beach was pretty sketchy. That said, I really enjoyed flying mine back in 2001. It was more of a Kite for kiters and not kitesurfers.

Not seeing what interesting concept this kite brings to the table looks like a foil kite with solid battons. Also Looks clunky and stiff . Doubt this will perform better than a modern day foil or lei kite as all kites need to have decent flexiablity. The video dosent help as its poor quality also .
