Kite looks great, much more simple than the Duotone Crazy Patchwork!

But why no one is not using yet HIGH Psi leading edge like on the pivot? Would be really awesome to see this on North.

.... because you can already pump the kites as high as you want without the gimmicky Naish thread?

just tested the 9m Carve with click bar (heu also North but not the same North if you can follow)

LE is very big. I mean very big.
the kite looks good and sober.

It was around 18-22 knots which was the low-end for me @120kg on my surfboard. Dead on-shore.
So not the ideal conditions to test a wave kite but:
- the low-end is OK (same as Slash 9m I also tested)
- bar pressure is VERY light which I like a lot (that is why I hate the Neo...). Lowerthenb theSlash wicks also very light.
- the kite works perfectly with the click bar I must day (better then with f*****g Neo)
- kite feels very light in general if you know what I mean, not only the bar pressure but the overall feeling)
- turns fast but doesn't generate pull in the turns
- drift is OK for what I could test (did some downwind on wave to see how it drifted)

I did feel once (only once) the bar shaking a bit like mentioned earlier in this post

All in all a very nice feeling kite if you like light bar pressure

Need to test the upper range in some side shore conditions

Why on earth would you want to pump harder a thicker LE?!
