Who owns eleveight?
Where did the money come? Who are the real owners of Eleveight?
Where is it registered? Why is it so secret?
Best became a laundry service and started like Eleveight is starting now, right? ... f_1361725/

PKRA was bought by Javier Dolset and he was associated with Richard Branson for VKWC.
ZED and Virgin seems to be good friends for long. PKRA must have been intentionally terminated.
Maybe Branson and Dolset had now to ask some of his trustful friends to play the investor role making Best workers and dealers happy... who knows?
Eleveight is the new Best.. the hellfish couldn't go on with it's owner in jail, so a long sleeping period was planned.

How many other brands do they control? ... or-de-zed/
Seriously less smoking before writing.... :lol: :lol: mr conspiracy theory ;) Sorry no offence, hope none tanken... but not that bad in reality
As for the first you mentioned, wait a month and see ;) It is a super cool launch of a company!

Just questions and a fact john a
You're probably right, it's a super cool company that is about to be launched, among with so many cool other that already exist.

Who owns Eleveight?

The guys who work there, there's no backers or investors, just long time industry guys doing it on their own. Rider owned and run. Only possible because of Peter's long standing with the companies they manufacturer with. Think they're working from Peter's house still.

Wish I knew this before dropping £700 on new best stuff. Sad as I've been riding them since the beginning on a waroo in 09. Will tell my mate not to bother getting a new kahoona.

Are bladders really that specific? If I need a new one is it easy to find something similar that will work?

Even after knowing this I still ordered a third Roca (with a huge discount) those kites are awesome. If the bladders can't be repaired there are generic one like Airtime bladders that will work. You can get valves and bladders from most of the kite fixing companies. I have been kiting for a long time too I have had to replace a few valves and only once a complete bladder so I'm not that worried about that!
