As far as I know Flysurfer has never updated kites on a yearly basis. Soul V2 could be a long way away, the current version is pretty bloody good.

Only time I know for that to happen was the Sonic FR and Sonic 2. Not very many people were happy about that because it was a big jump in tech as well. FS use to only update when there was a large update to be needed(kept secondhand prices high), now they are sticking to a 2-3 year cycle it seems. This spring expect a new Splitboard, a new bar(gonna be very similar to the one for the Peak4), and the next Sonic3/Speed6(I'm betting they are merging the line).

What about Speed4 std and dlx (8 and 10 m2) and Speed4 Lotus (whole range)- different wing shape and bridle system!?

We're super satisfied with the SOUL and keep it as long as possible without modification in our line up. I think for min 1 more year.
We just made a small adaption to the SOUL package. We decided to sell the wing with two bags during the 2019 season and give the customer a small additional incentive.

Cheers, Armin.

Is this additional bag already included in Souls sold right now? I'm about to order Soul 15m right now.

People complained about control bar. Can Soul be flown on different bar like cabrinha trimlite?

Please speak with your dealer direct about a bag and bar compatibility.

In short words about the bar:
- The bars need to have a V frontlines or at least low Y.
- Safety need to be able to pull more than half wingspan to flag the kite out properly and to avoid damage.
-All lines should have same length to be properly trimmed.

Cheers, Armin

I hope this bags is the same type of bag that the other major foil kite company has to fold the wing like a paraglider (concertina bag).

This kind of concertina bags are with our super elastic rigid foil´s technical completely unnecessary.
It is possible to bend our rigid foils to diameters smaller than 1 cm and they just spring back. I don't know customer that over-bend any of them.
You only need it, if you use inelastic stiff rodes like some paraglider brands use.

The SOUL is designed to be able to use as easy as possible with max performance that everyone can enjoy it.
