UFO V2? I did see a yellow/black UFO in the Gorge [Event Site] a few weeks ago. A 4m V2 production or proto? Don't know. Didn't have the opportunity to track it down at the launch.

It’s still a very light color and I’ve never been happy with a light or very light gray leading edge because it is difficult to get stains out of.

I don’t understand the obsession with white (sorry light gray) things.

Of the things to change, the leading color was not on my list.

Let’s hope they make a 4m.

3,4,5,6,7,9 and 11.

New lighter leading edge material dle140

.2 kg lighter every kite?

Thinner bridle.

Retuned for drift with lighter weight kites.

I think it would be nice if there was a thinner bridle upgrade kit for the v1.x
