I can't speak about States, but we have at least one supplier here in QC area...

That being said... How many pulleys does this thing have?

The big difference between Nova3 and Chrono is in the shape (Aspect Ratio, and the Conical Leading edge), also the Bar has some improvements. But Chrono as Nova3 still has not central strut.

The Bridle have only 2 pulleys, very simple and efective.

I think the idea with Chrono is one kite to fit different styles.

You can see more info soon at: http://www.takoon.com

The Takooon Pure was also available earlier, and Naish has some of their models out to a lot of stores.

Hello all.

I received CHRONO last week.
and I rode the kite of 15m2 with under-just -over wind conditions.

the handling feel is very smooth, not heavy but not light, very good bar feel.

the kite move really smooth ! like 12 or 13m2 kites.
kite generate good power and changed wind into smooth power.

when under condition.
I can move kite smoothly and generalte good power to ride.

when just condition.
I felt free and FUN of kiteboarding, speed, jump, turn,etc, perfect in all aspects !

when over condition.
trim the kite with chiken loop, you will not feel fear of too much kite power.
the kite still generate good power with smooth , discipline feeling.

very good kite.
I will be happy with this kite !

I agree, really good kite. Much more low end compare to other Takoon kites, more powerfull. The new bar gets a lot of improvement too.
This kite just crossed Australia to Tasmania and is ripping the PKRA race in Greece at the moment.
