I let my buddy ride my 2013 Xbow 13m this week and we were discussing how amazing the kite was. Tons of power, great hangtime, its sad to see it go. Hopefully the Velocity is a suitable replacement when the time comes.

The sector board competitor looks interesting...

don't fret, the Velocity is just the evolution of the crossbow with a different name. The ultimate freeride kite that also shreds on the racecourse!

The Contra was the First and very popular light wind kite. The return of the Contra is remains targeted at the light wind need...note it only comes is two sizes. i haen't tried it, so looking forward to getting mine to see if it again fills the need like the original Contra
