Rebel 2021 12 m 3,41kg vs 3,75kg 2020
Rebel 2021 9m 2,96kg vs 3,25kg 2020

I only ride 12m , first impressions vs 2020

- loop much better
- fast turn
- same hangtime
- same bar feelling
- the bag is small but is ok.

Click bar with new lines 5*

when wind drop i noticed the kite at 12h flies ok, not drop from air with 10kts, we can notice the reduction of weight.

Nice information, thank you for that!
With much better loops you mean tighter or a better catch or smoother?

I did order the 8m,9m and 11m 2021. The 8m will be delivered later because I want all three the yellow kites.

As soon as I did ride the 9m and 11m kite I will make a report here.

Guys, any more news / reviews about the new Rebel?
Looking for some more info about the loops and the catch compared to my 2019 before ordering them.
I love everything else about the rebel so if indeed the catch is better, loops faster and has less backstall then I am happy.

Today was a good day to test de 9m Rebel 2021. I'm used to kite with a 9m FX. But the rebel loops pretty good. Not as agressive as an FX, but the loops are fast en the catch is reliable. Not afraid for backstall.

Jose, Thank you and yes i saw the vid's before but I don't understand French and if you give a pro an old rebel he will also loop it perfectly ...

Hí Kamperman, thanx, nice jumps! which bar do you use and do you prefer the open V?

It's an Ocean rodeo pilot bar. I haven't kited the Rebel with a higher V, so I can't comment on that. But with most kites, I like the low V.
