What is the aim of the Phoenix? Old school kite? Or going for a fast 5 strutter? I mean the pivot is already marketed as their big air kite
The might position the Pivot back to the freeride/wave crossover it originally was...

But then they would probably not advertise a powerload bridle as the new thing on the Pivot.

Could be. But that bridle looks pretty basic tbh, same as many other kites. Bit more wingtip and upper arc support. I'm not sure, but there might've been complaints about the thinner LE? Not everyone can get the pressure up to 11psi ofcourse...

And what about the Dash? Shouldn't that be their freestyle kiteloop kite? Wouldn't the Pivot directly compete if the new bridle was all about pushing the limits (what they're advertising the Dash with at the moment...) ?

Maybe the Phoenix is more like a Ten Velox/Cabrinha Apollo?

Ah well... we'll see.

Its an old school jump kite. Doubt it will see competition over the Pivot. But airstylers rejoice!

Well, if it is anything like the Draft it will certainly have style. It feels like a 12 & 9 combo would be great one. :-)

Very slow turning is not bad.

For landing more tricks and less hospital, this is good.

Because of the woo everyone is using 5 strut kites now. They need that extra half a meter. If you don't use a woo then the 3 strut is usually more fun because it's lighter and less sluggish in the air. Most kiters can't do a single trick other than boost and kick their feet up in the air, and then look at the woo numbers afterwards. That's the future of kiting.

There is still intermediate kiters out there on 3 struts. have my eleveight rs quiver. They are great kites and at my level, all I need for now. Next kite will be an orbit 9 and learn loops
