Producing an all round kite with great boosting characteristics might be a pretty good business move. If Kevin wins the KOTA and the kite seems to have great jumping performance I am sure there will be some demand for it.

So basically they are going to focus their brand about on a single all found kite (a bit like the F-One Bandit)?
Bandit own a huge market share. I personally think they will silly branching out and making more models. Now they are the same as everyone else and you don’t know which to buy. Loads of brands copied their three strut delta design and still do.

Looking forward to seeing feedback from average guys on the new reedin kites when released.

Kites that can do it all are awesome. I have the best at it from 2008. Surf, jump, freestyle, all good.

Agree on this would love a versatile kite, an improved Pivot in some ways.

Kevin is “the advertising” I’d say
I’d be surprised if dealers are not rushing to contact Kevin for offers and terms.
There’s enormous amount of technical slowness and huge delays delivering to marked what people actually want. That’s how “makers forum” is so active. If Kevin can skip that flaw, always move forward to better things - they’ll get their market

It’s Duotone spending $(*) on flags and beer glasses and bracelets/stickers besides printed ads to capture whom - boots/unhooked wakestyle riders which have triple S cancelled on them? And then they release race-like foil which has nothing to do with actual race foil and won’t be a good freeride foil either?
Well, as long as they can explain it to investors.
