I’m just guessing but I would bet that any dates are speculative at best with all the supply chain issues reported by most companies at this time. Hope I’m wrong but I guess we’ll see.

It's pictures and info that I'm after, not delivery dates. I know that supply chains are shot to pieces.

A nice man sent me this link, thanks! You are forgiven for slaughtering team UK in the America's Cup. ;-)

As it happens, a few weeks ago I ordered an Alpha V2 14m Blue so given the current material shortages and supply dislocations it will be interesting to see when it actually turns up!

The online pics of the Alpha V2 leading edge fabric look the same (or very similar) to the "Penta TX" used for the Duotone Evo SLS. Interesssting.

Ozone have this on the full kite range now apart from the Amp and Edge, really adds stiffness to the frame of the kite

That alongside the triple ripstop has made the Enduro really responsive and great at gust handling, the thing i find funny is that it's on the very reasonably priced catalyst V3 a sub £1000 kite at no extra cost :)

i have my Alphas landing in about 2 weeks so can grab some photos for you guys, but some massive changes to the kite design, that alongside the new dacron and ripstop should be very interesting.

I have been using the new 1 strut Catalyst V3 on a twin tip, (this kite was designed off the alpha ) way more stable than the alpha but the power delivery is quite different, i would say it's a great travel kite as it jumps well and i have even had some nice loops on it, i think the V2 alpha will sit very nicely in the line up

Just curious - is this replacing your 14.5 Flite?
