I was hoping for something really radical from Pat. But looks similar to a switchblade.

I have to say that the graphics on the "Prototype" kite look better than old North, Duotone, Cabrinha, Naish, Liquid Force, Fone, etc. kite graphics. I always wonder what sort of graphic designers they use to make such ugly kite graphics.

I think the only radical will com from Bruno L's idea.

Otherwise a kite is pretty much a kite...

What about Vantage Kites, that sounds very promising in terms of new innovation.

I think the graphics are nice too, or rather lack of them. I hope they keep it simple and not try too much which seems to be common.

Hm. I thought that red bull logos on kite are manufactured in fabric level, if its just guled logo sticker on kite that i can make it easy at home or ask some local company who making sticker :)
It's not legal to do that. Most sticker makers won't make a redbull logo because of this. The logo is copyrighted.
