Carrie says she agrees with everything Shireen said

Depreciation is bad enough on kites as it is, but to have a pink kite specifically just for women will make it even worse. Making it harder to get a good resale value. Basically once you buy it, you are stuck with it, or you sell it off for stupid cheapness when it's time to change

So market it as kit for small \light people with a pink option if the girly girls want

flipping magenta ! Why is it I only hear men calling anything 'magenta' :p . It's purple ! There was a pink kayak owned by a guy he was instistant it was magenta ... Pictures said other wise ! I generally think the guys colour spectrum for magenta is baby pink - deep purple ! ( I am saying this light hearted by the way)

From Dimitri

Ladies,
I know the bar is a very important issue and that's why I am spending a lot of time on the WAHINE bar as well. For example, the (Wahine) ladies bar will have a 45cm throw compare to the 60cm throw the normal bar has. Plus the loop of the CL will be way smaller. Also the bar diameter of the bar will be much narrower then the normal bar we have and the POWER/DEPOWER strap will be 6cm longer then the normal strap that we have now on our XTEND BAR. So everything will be very close for you to reach.
Now concerning EVA graphics and look of the WAHINE bar…. we are still working on.

Let me tell you my first ever kite, a lovely PKD Buster 3m, was pink, I mean it said Purple on the bag but it was plainly pink. I flew that thing with pride and even had a matching pink kite flying shirt to go with...  Proud days.. No magenta there!
