More expensive?! They must be insane...
The price for the current click bar is surreal already :-o
He's talking about the Neo, not a Click bar...

Source of the fabric ? Teijin probably.

Could the "new" lighter fabric be T9600, the original single-ripstop polyester spinnaker sailcloth that used to be industry standard before North ( now Duotone ) started the Technoforce D2 detour into heavier canopy fabrics?

Would be ironic if Duotone leads the ways back to lighter canopy cloth.

In the latest duotone diversity magazine, Page 80 there is a nice discussion about lightweight kites and some of the efforts by duotone.

Including mention of testing new materials that manufacturers are offering, possibly because of aluula coming to market.

Apparently the dice have not changed much this year, slightly thinner struts, overall slightly lighter. Coming in 3 colours: purple, charcoal, green.

Duotone have adopted the same lines as core kites for 2021 which have more strands but overall thinner, stronger and less stretch. The click bar is just shy of $1000 by the time you add a Chicken loop.

I gather the boards have not really changed a huge deal, they are scrapping some of the the textreme models and replacing them with higher end SLS versions which are stupidly expensive. The surf boards are also taking a big price hike too I understand.
