They already have a website.
And why ReedIn ? Maybe because LangerREE and GirarDIN --> ReeDin
Just a guess

Edit : If they remove the pulleys, I'll have a look on these kites !
So will I.
Just for clarification, there is one slider (per side) on the Pivot. In almost 5 years of using Pivots it's never given me or anyone I ride with using Pivots any kind of issue. It doesn't even wear the one bridle line it contacts. (of which is very easy to replace if there was any fraying)
SO what's the fuss with one slider? Is it a feel thing? If I'm not mistaken that slider allows quite a bit more angle of attack for depower?

1 slider, don't see a problem.
6 pulleys still on some kites, seems very 2005.
Yes.

I wouldn't listen to anyone else's opinions doing a business like this. People love to give opinions, I'd politely listen and do whatever the f#% I wanted. I learnt this the hard way, a great way to learn.

I can only agree.

A good example for it: this forum 👍🏻

Lol, people generally tell you what is good for them, not for you when it comes to $.

About the pulley, of course the kite works well with pulleys(and so does all the other kites with pulleys). It is just my personal preference. I like the feeling of a kite without pulleys : it is a more direct feeling with stronger bar pressure. I also find the no pulley kites quicker. But it is a personal preference and I am not saying the kite was not good.
I recently tried the new EVO (no more pulleys) and really really enjoyed it. But I still have a problem with the Duotone bar and lines.

Ahh, but listening to others may mean you don’t have to learn the hard way. Why become wealthy and successful the hard way when you could get some sensible advice and do it faster, easier and not hard. Unless of course you want to learn the hard way which is your or anyone’s right. Less efficient but perfectly legit. I wish Kevin (and you) every success and I will miss this thread when it’s gone. Most entertaining, all this pontificating

Gotta love opinions with no basis in reality, information or actual knowledge.
I mean, this is an Internet forum. 🙄👍

Don't be sure, the knowledge, experience etc of the mass is much higher than of any individual.
