It’s looking like the v2 is going to be priced higher than the Soul.
:o :lol:

Cell count, general shape and AR seem to be same as V1, so it is not changed that much. Air intakes are now differently located than before.

Because V1 was a success and knowing that Ozone's forte is to optimize and fine tune their kites very far - even though specs are not that impressive - there is no reason to expect anything else than this kite is very good also. Problem is pricing and much increased competition in this kite segment.
Where do you see cell count and AR?

I heard new coated material, lighter. Different closure on the intake socks to keep socks closed when needed and to improve inflation pressures. Something about internal construction I think.

Yes...if you like the v1 you will like the v2 even more

Nice. Looking forward to review on how well the 13m performs in light wind. Looks like good overlapping to the 9m

Suppose to come in only the LW cloth and be priced slightly higher than the V1 UL.
Don't think the price will be higher than v1 ultra
Supposedly since it will only come in their new UL fabric, they are going to be priced slightly higher than the v1 ULs which will make them more expensive than the Soul and along the same price as the Chrono v3.

No,they will not be priced higher than v1 UL and therefore nothing like Chrono prices,so lower price than Soul?

Similar or lower price as Soul, lower than Chrono.

You can count cells, it is 31. If AR was changed also cell count would very probably be changed. Kite also looks similar like it was. Ozone has earlier kept same basic designs for years, just making some small improvements.

IDK why air intakes are now differently placed in V2 than they were in V1, earlier placement was very logical.

Soul has about 30% higher cell count, higher AR, it is much more complex and more advanced kite, having lighter materials, also more laborious to manufacture. These two shouldn't cost anywhere near same :roll:
