Yeah - not true that these kites have "no" depower. They had a lot of depower ... compared to the two line kites that preceded them. Before 4 lines kites the only way to slow down to stop being overpowered & being ripped downwind was to edge REALLY hard upwind. It was exhausting & somewhat scary. With the first 4 line kites you could actually depower the kite AND edge upwind, It was a game-changer - the first important step towards making kiting accessible to more people.
