- Dec 2, 2001Nice shape!!! Maximizing the project area will be the way to go in
the future. This will make small kites to have more power (probably
whats being happening with 2002 Cabrinhas and Airush kites?? Once you
can pump them like rock, the kite designer will be able to make a
more eliptical shape on the LE and so have more project area).
But I would like to see Gaastra kites pics instead of drawings... I
find hard to believe that they will be able to do such a "square"
shape, even with a spar (cause it will have to be a REAL hard spar to
hold that shape). Such a spar will not be a light weight for sure and
will be a pain in the ass to pack.
