Can’t have a better reason 😉

I have been making sails professionally for the past 20 years and haven't seen any revolutionary material in the sailmaking industry for years. Different blend and mixes yes but just like rip stop, double , triple quadruple as often mostly marketing .

The only thing I can think of is the one piece, no stitches moulded sails as used in America's cup boats but price would be exorbitant, who knows maybe they use something look alike as used on some parts of windsurfing sails, not the real thing but cheaper and looks good.

Looking at the logo from Ullmann people will think it is a Switch kite...
Ullman is the former South Easter southeasterkites.com

The twin strut wing comes from the same team: http://signaturefoils.com/air-wings/
