Nice video in marginal wind Nem0. We can see the good flight of the Pulsion in extreme light wind. And nice detailed pictures.

Which cloth did you choose ? 27gr or 32 gr ?
Can you compare the marginal wind flight of Pulsion vs soul at the zenith ? When working the kite ? Even if even with same kite model, 12m2 is easier to keep in the air tat 18m2.

@foilholio : No not tested. I do not want to add lines to set the camber. My setting suits me like it is (FYI I put a stopper on SPL B tgat acts similarly as wac line in extreme sheet-out position).

This is the light version! The green fabric is Sytex 27gr and the yellow fabric is 32gr.

Good choice for the 18m in my opinion. As a reminder the normal cloth is 40gr. The soul is 32gr.

Stopper on B SPL? Please explain. Unless it grabs A I fail to see how it increases camber. If it grabs when powering it will just bond B to C and distort the profile.

The stopper is placed on the SPL B, just before the connection to C ; Actually it decreases camber (B) at the very end of the sheet-out stroke.

It is the setting I prefer for the moment in 2-4 knots (before foiling-up to increase auto-zenith when I do not hold the bar and swim-out from shore); Pulsion has so much low wind zenith ability that I accept to decrease it a bit and have the kite sitting a bit backward in the window for increased stability.
