I thought the whole idea of Vantage was to collect data from their pool of riders, to feedback into the dev process.
I thought it was computerized data and not data from riders. Because that would be no different than any other brand.
I thought the whole idea behind Vantage is that they used computer algorithms to calculate the best way to design a kite.
Pure hype that got a lot of people fooled like myself! Think twice before get on a deal with them. Just saying...

I'm actually interested as well, compare to big brand kites, prices are slightly better. Was considering the 7m for strong wind days.

As they claim to depend more on computer algorithms and deep learning I assumed that they didn't rely much on real-life testing.
Now after a year seeing a 2nd generation kite that has completely been redesigned does make me conclude they do what every brand does: build tons of prototype kites, play with the bridles and knots, test on water, test on water,..., test on water,... and so one.
Cut the crap.
Must be nice to read that your current Vulture has been completely redesigned because the previous deep learing model was... ehh not good.
