So today is the official launch day of the new Nexus kite, we've all been out in the wind and waves of Cap Verde giving it the once (or even twice)over. Dealers, Distributors Mag guys and pretty much everyone has been impressed with it. Kind of a two or three kites in one, it's billed as an improvers kite for anyone wanting to do anything other than mow the lawn and occasionally getting launched skyward without any great skill set a la XRseries.
The Nexus has a deal more lift than the Section yet retains the drift and slack line control, it smooths out the loop and unhooking freestyle entry path, being less punch in the face than the GTS4, encouraging just about everyone out there to try something new and actually nail it. The Nexus also rewards those folk already well endowed with kite skills with something extra as Mag tester and old school UK legend Chris Bull found out when he sent it particularly hard off a lip and broke the Cap Verde woo kite record scoring over 52 foot, 16.1 metres which for a freestyle wave kite is good going.
It turns on a dime, is smooth as a wet otters pocket and friendlier than US Warthog fire, all in all a kite you have got to check out at least once...
