What is the aim of the Phoenix? Old school kite? Or going for a fast 5 strutter? I mean the pivot is already marketed as their big air kite
The might position the Pivot back to the freeride/wave crossover it originally was...

But then they would probably not advertise a powerload bridle as the new thing on the Pivot.

Could be. But that bridle looks pretty basic tbh, same as many other kites. Bit more wingtip and upper arc support. I'm not sure, but there might've been complaints about the thinner LE? Not everyone can get the pressure up to 11psi ofcourse...

And what about the Dash? Shouldn't that be their freestyle kiteloop kite? Wouldn't the Pivot directly compete if the new bridle was all about pushing the limits (what they're advertising the Dash with at the moment...) ?

Maybe the Phoenix is more like a Ten Velox/Cabrinha Apollo?

Ah well... we'll see.
