Hi All,

I’m stoked to offer you the first look at our killer new Rise Venturi with XPD Technology. Continuing with our ongoing goal of making kites more efficient and packing even more power per square meter, here are a couple of key highlights.

1) You’ll note we’ve gone to a 6 strut design, and as such eliminated the center strut. This improves aerodynamics in a critical area of the kite, and reduces weight where you want it least. The end result is a kite with yet more power, greater efficiency, higher stability, and a more rigid canopy less prone to distortion at the top end of its range!

2) XPD Technology. You can see that panels on the LE get exponentially larger when moving from the center of the kite to the tips, and that they mate up perfectly with the 6 strut layout.

Larger panels at the tips increase projected area, reduce drag, and provide direct steering input. The transition to smaller panels at the center better matches the curvature at the trailing edge, and provides better airflow and lift. More power!

We’ve also come out with a fantastic new adjustable size bar, and on top of all this, have actually reduced MSRP on the majority of our 2010 product line. :thumb:

Please contact your preferred retailer to inquire about price, availability and to place your orders.

Cheers,

Evan

Thanks for the post Evan.

The 10m Rise has been my biggest kite over the past 2 seasons. If my thinking is correct the 2010 Rise 10m will have an even better range?

At 65 kilos I’ll add the new 7m (new Rise sizes mentioned in an earlier post)

As for boards: Must try the Mini Mako and the Mako King. That should see me good to go wink

Has the new bar trim line changed?

Been pondering a similar issue myself Andy. As we’ve spoke probably Rises for me next but what size??

I have a 16m Caution answer as a low wind animal but what will my “Go to”  and high wind kites be? Looking at a 20mph being the sweet spot for the “go to” and a high wind beastie to fit with it. 10m and 7m perhaps - or 11m and 8m. 75kgs in the buff!!!!!

That bar fellas - Wow you have been busy! looks the nuts!!  But please dont fall into the trap of over engineering.

yes ETA please. Timing could be crucial this year!!

If you keep doing this, I will be broke and divorce.  Awesome job done?  When I will be able to have one?

If you’re going to keep the 16m Caution 8 and 11 would work mate. If going with a simple 2 kite quiver (all Ocean Rodeo-what else?) getting improved low end to boot then maybe the 9 and 12? I don’t know…..

Anyway I want to kite next week. Where are you going to be?
