Dimitri just posted this...........


Guys we are just testing few concepts and wanted to share it with you. Momi and I started this idea 2 years ago while we were working on few light wind kites such as the INFINITY kites but did not pursue it because of no much interest. Any way during all these demos I have been conducting we've had a lot of people demoing them with lots of testimonials and some good inputs. Will put a video together so you get an idea. But again personally I love having struts. Way easier to relaunch and more sturdy feel but again few people did like the feel of the NO STRUT kite. Some of them said that it flew like "butter".
The good thing about not having struts is that it's way easier to pack, much lighter and no extra struts to pump or having to replace in case something happens. So in few words less things to worry about. The only bad thing is that in the turns it flutters a lot when you are depowering the kite by pushing the bar away plus relaunching it is not as easy as relaunching a kite with struts. Don't take me wrong, it does relaunch but not as easy. (video coming out soon). Once again we are just playing around with some ideas maybe as a snow kite. Thank you Mr.matthepp.

P.S. Now Momi is going to kill me because off all the info I am posting.
