A few pics of the 2010 Rise Venturi XPD in flight. Personally I think the grey/black version is bad ass.

Cheers,

Evan

With you Evan that grey / black looks awesome.

Changing the bar length too - fantastic and you’ve managed to squeeze a price drop in. How good is that!!

Gonna be trouble again

Yeah, I think that color is really sexy, and just looks fast as hell. Aside from the performance benefits, losing the center strut also make the canopy look super clean and more aesthetically pleasing.

Miltsface,
Switching to the different bar length is extremely simple, and best illustrated by these photos. It doesn’t get any simpler (or brilliant!) than this!
Short:

Long:

so is it just a larks head connection to the line that passes thru the bar end?

Yup it’s that simple.

K.I.S.S - Nice implementation.

Harry, with regards to cost, while I have no clue what goes on across the pond (but yes, your pricing is susceptible to currency fluctuations), I can say that in the US the price of the 2010 bar has dropped from $415 USD (2009) to $375 USD for this killer new upgrade. grin

The drop in US price is nice, but I don’t think we, as UK riders, should be waiting for the kind of prices we had until recently.  Today’s exchange rate is about $1.6/£1.  That’s about normal for our 2 economies.  It was only when the US economy started having problems and the UK one lagged behind that we got the benefit of almost $2/£1 making stuff considerably cheaper for us for a short period.  What we’re seeing now is normality restoring itself.  Both our ecominies are in the pan, to almost the same level.  We should be thankful it’s not back at $1.4/£1.  Ouch.

Of course, the prices for nearly everything have increased, mostly due to the Japanese Yen.  When that rate restores itself again, we’ll get cheaper electrical goods, but not kites.

Anyway, that’s my amatuer view on things. smile

answer is yes to the first, working hard on the second.

A few shots in from the Crew event in Tarifa. Unfortunately they had very light wind, but it looks like a great time anyway.

I can guess who took this one….

Jeremie on the new Zen.

And making the most of the light stuff with the Mako King.

And JZ in his usual fine form, but what, no Guinness on he beach?
