2022 Gear

Postby SP2021 » Tue Jul 27, 2021 9:22 am

Hi, I would like to buy some new kites, but i'm waiting to see what new is coming to offer in 2022. We already have XR7 - which do not have a lot of changes, but i heard it's sick.
Do you guys know when 2022 : REBEL, PIVOT and ORBIT will be out? These 3 and XR7 are kites I'm considering. Thanks :thumb:

What are you doing with them? That will tell you what you should be buying. Judging from your choices, it's boosting and probably looping.

Pure Boosting - XR7
Pure Looping - Orbit
Boosting/Looping/Waves - Pivot

Rebel is kinda the halfway house of the XR and Orbit. I really enjoyed the 2021 when I rode it a few weeks ago.

XR > Rebel > Orbit > Pivot.

Flagship kites are normally announced in August (which these are). Last year there were almost 6-month delays with some orders, so it may depend on supply chain availability to when they're released or you're able to order. Unless the Rebel has moved to an SLS version, I doubt the new one will outperform the XR in terms of pure boosting anyway. Good luck with your new XRs.

Pay attention, introducing of a new model doesn't mean they also deliver it. I waited 4 months for 3 new 2021 Rebels.

The only thing which REALLY counts in terms of the 2022 gear is: Dumb customer will have to pay 30 % more. Shut up and order now!

PS: Statements like this "We already have XR7 - which do not have a lot of changes, but i heard it's sick." make me sick :roll:
