its probably going to be best all round kite in many aspects but single kite will cost as 3 regular versions.

Well at least you can keep your liver.

All jokes and the price craziness aside, I am really looking forward to this kite. I have hopes that this is an easy loop kite even in the bigger sizes like 12m. This can also be done with an SLS, but it still could be quicker to catch you safely.

Anyone (except Lasse Walker) know when it will be available?

Regular Evo loops brilliant even in larger sizes, I learnt my first loops on regular Evo 13m '22
I think this will be awesome kite in size 9/10m with massive range and hopefully less teething problems to SLS version

Are we talking about higher (mega)loops here, pulled before the apex of the jump so that it will catch you before you hit the water? Because I have never seen anyone pull such a loop on a 13M Evo. But I also wouldn´t say it´s impossible.

Lasse had a video of him looping a 14 and being caught. Not sure what kite.

Seen the same with an aluula 14.5m flite from ocean rodeo.

Great and also confirmed they should be released early spring from a few distributors in FRA/ UK
Does anyone know if it will perform better than the SLS in strong winds. I have no doubts about the construction and durability for foiling and light wind conditions but I was wondering if it had a healthy behaviour and when pulling loops and properly send it in 30+ knots
