Great product launch! And looks like a great kite!

I'm glad to see that the long mixer test is considered and supported! :thumb: ozone is a disappointment in that regard

Good thing Flysurfer makes great kites, marketing effort falls short when you expect readers to watch a video to answer product questions. I guess the FAQ on the webpage will have to do for now.

Here it is:
The FLYSURFER SOUL is a brand new product line, which targets a wide variety of customers, who like to travel and use a safe product with high comfort on any terrain.
The SOUL gives a new riding experience. The higher bar forces and superb relaunch will convince kiters who are used to LEI-kites and like to transition over to foilkites.

We focused also on the freestyle capabilities of the SOUL, to give a unique „Do what you want, wherever and whenever!“.

It will be an eyeopener for kiteschools, who are focusing on light wind lessons. Furthermore the SOUL’s unique outline and clean graphic design puts the kite in a new spotlight.

The SPEED5 will remain in our line up for people who love hangtime combined with user-friendliness and light bar forces.

SOUL + relaunch + stability + backstall resistancy + simple launching + unhooked performance + hydrofoiling

SPEED5 + hangtime + effortless riding + bright graphic design + price

Impressive relaunch! Though it made me cringe watching foils slammed down so hard.

That's amassing !

Yes, it's flat water, yes it's full Moon, but man, it's a game changer for some.

Well done.

Flysurfer (shop?) did also hard slamming video of Speed4 lotus. That encouraged me to buy one (later bought second smaller which I still use) because it showed light lotus fabric survives big crashes. Before that the Lotus marketing was that it repels water and ink.

That relaunch looks amazing!

From the website, it looks like the Soul is 4-7% heavier than the Sonic Race, depending on size. That's a pretty awesome comparison to their lightest race model.

The Soul is unfortunatelly not a very light kite ; that may be detrimental to extreme light wind for light riders.

Internal construction including oval openings in inter-cells and profile adjustment inside the kite are very interesting .

Yes, unfortunately just tested it once seriously, in the midle of this video, but looked great, did not even need to stop for it until it was coming up again ...
.. and this in not more than 10 knts of wind. :D
