Aloha!
Any recommendations for SWITCH NANO? is it comparable to EVO Duotone 2020?
Thanks!

Shape looks more like the Neo than the Evo to me so probably not comparable to the Evo.

Not sure where you are ordering to but you might find international deliveries slower at the moment but maybe if you can't get on the water because of local policy then slow delivery might not matter?

my only concern is its reactions on gusty winds. they say that is an all around kite. thats why i try to compare it with the EVO.

The Element is very similar to the Evo

Is the Element being phased out now with the introduction of the Nano?

Not yet, but now they have 3 kites that do basically the same, so I wouldn't be surprised...

Interesting. When was the Element 7 launched? (no pun intended)
I'd rather see a 3 strut kite that flies more forward in the window, but that's me.
The new bar looks very good. Is the QR from another brand?

E7 a few months ago iirc.

Bar looks good indeed. Best bar they've had yet I think. V4 was a piece of trash in my experience. V2 was ugly, but unbreakable. The V5 design comes from Majestic Design. Reedin uses it too (though I think they have a more freely spinning swivel), and Lacuna also. Maybe more brands will follow.

How is bar pressure on the Nano?
