Definitely bigger hang time. But maybe because he perfectly helilooping it ? in most jumps impossible to see kite at all, so, this is key to understand its simply kite better handtime or Kevin's perfect bar movements during landing.

he is heli looping.

Going huge...but other riders do more tricks...see Janek. Let's see if they get his height, but definitely will win if similar height.

Gonna be interesting.

Those clips must've been from the two really strong days in cape town, I doubt that janek would do anything crazy in these conditions. I hope that the wind will be this strong during the event!

There is a new KevVlog and he is talking aboutr the new ReedIn kite. Between 3:50 and 4:10, we have a quick look at the bridle. But I was not able to see anything.
Funny to see that he had to blur the Naish Apex pad on the video :rollgrin:

Hard to tell for sure but it looks like one slider each side.
