It has "MAKO" written on it.
I’m Leary of the increased power claim. In one of the OR interviews one of the employees says he doesn’t get more power but does get a better upstroke when starting on a foil.jumptheshark wrote: ↑Tue Aug 27, 2019 8:38 pmIncreased power per meter, increased reactivity/turning, increased power delivery, there will be a bit of a recalibration of kite sizes to wind ranges. Of course it's my hope that the top end is also improved with increased stiffness, and that the depower is enough to keep up so you don't lose teeth in the gusty stuff.
As someone looking to cover large ranges with as few kites as possible it all sounds pretty good.
I would be shocked if they didn't milk the market initially. My guess is that demand will be a lot higher than their capacity of production. Rare to see anything like this in any market. It feels a bit like when the iPhone first appeared. To serve kiters with limited price sensitivity makes a lot of sense. And I believe there are quite a few kiters that would like to be in the "exclusive" group for some time - being the only one on the beach with Aluula etc.
