Limited edition kites? Seems like a gimmick IMO.
As opposed to every other marketing idea in kiting?

Re: 12m choice slingshot RPM Cabrinha fx or Eleveight RS

The RS has a ridiculous range. I see guys at my local on a 12m hanging on when I'm OK on my 7. The Pivots are great on the low end but don't have the high end wind capacity the RS. I don't know the FX very well. I had a go on an RS and the thing is sick for boosting.

Re: Duotone 2021

You can read it on the website that Eleveight uses a lighter stronger Dacron on the OS. I'm not sure if they are using it on the rest of the range, but they are claiming lighter kites, so they maybe using more of it this year.

Re: Do expensive wetsuits last longer?

I think back zip wetties last longer because they don't get as stretched as a front zip.

Zipless are the worst for sure.
