hard to find a downside to that, but the big question:
-how much more will it cost?

Hi guys,

Jumping in here to help answer questions as they come up. Fair warning though: I'm going to be a little cheeky with my replies until we formally launch the new materials.

Had to edit the title of the topic a bit...so people don’t miss this...

Sounds like a real amazing material...looking forward to see what’s happening with it.

I saw Richard is at the German World Cup on Sylt, too bad I am missing it, on my way to Brazil.

I hope you guys are at the huge testival end of August in St Peter-Ording in Germany. Many people will want to test this for sure.

Good luck with this 👍🏻

this is really good news!

is that material used only for the frame or can it be also used for the canopy?

can the foil kites benefit from this?

how about cost?
