I want the new version to auto park on the edge of the wind window like an LEI. Born kites have a single skin kite that does:

I don't see it is going to happen with a high performance foil kite.

SS kite sits much deeper in the WW and is very light weight, so it may stay there. LEI kite has a lot of canopy curve and it takes support on ground or water. Kite like Soul flies far to the edge, depowers a lot and falls/folds itself down.

Maybe they will increase the ratio slightly. A lot of people are buying the elf swift as it’s cheaper but has more grunt than the soul but similar characteristics Other wise. FLYSURFER done a video of them on line in comparison. Bit rough around the edges but a lot cheaper for similar experience so they will have to do something good to stay competitive perhaps. People preferring the elf due to extra grunt so maybe the soul will get a little extra?

I don't see why Soul needs extra grunt, since the kite was very powerful as it is. I believe people buy Elf kites for other reasons.

The only two things I would like to see in V2 is lighter bar pressure and faster turning speed of 12m and bigger sizes.

Possible Soul V2 spotted on instagram? I'm guessing its a prototype. Nice sharp colour scheme though!

Only aspect I would change on the Soul would be turning speed, and maybe having higher cell count sizes 9 and smaller, as they perform, behave completelly different from sizes 10 and up.

f*** that looks good. Is that from a FB group? Unless they sped up the video, that’s pretty fast turning.
