Too much product placement on this forum. Social media influencers are becoming the telemarketers of the internet
Disagree. I bought my first Pivot based on the reviews and discussions here, without opportunity to test ride one, and have now bought 6 of them. I will forever be grateful to the original thread about the Pivot and the posters who described it there. I love them! Looking forward to reviews of the "Supermodel" by independent riders.

I’ve found the images now - yes, terrible photoshop work! Otherwise they look good although I find the ‘skinniest bar on the market’ thing slightly strange - is there a call for this? I prefer my bar not to be too thin.

I'm all for independent riders. If you're not up to speed on the current internet landscape there are companies who pay people on social media to push a product. It's more pervasive than you would know, since people dont take notice of internet ads and tv ads anymore.

Whenever someone posts a half page testament on why a product is great or better than others, its probably some affiliation with a company. If you're in tech or marketing then you would know you just pay a company and they do it for you or better still do it yourself.

So I'm all for the reviews and discussions here, but not someone pushing a product because its their job.

Shame about the prices! Straight in at top dollar even as a new company. Especially for that colour scheme which as someone said will soon look Manky. Bar looks a nice design but I hate skinny bars two. The ozone click loop is an awesome system and probably best out there so it’s good they have used that or designed similar. The ozone bar is a nice thickness though.

Haha, funny thread, funny answers. But it's actually not bad photoshop but no photoshop. They just put normal length lines to kite and back to bar, to get 2x shorter lines and get cool pictures. Not the first, nor the last ones doing it. Just why didn't they photoshop it away...

Six line kites were a thing ten years ago.
You could stick a pulley on the kite with this setup and have 2:1 depower 😉

Are these kites still not in the hands of normal riders? Still can’t find any reviews. In the market for a new 9m
Thinking of the supermodel or xr6?

Super model sounds a lot like a Pivot.........I may have to switch, I have always dreamed of riding a Super Model....move over Tom Brady...
