One of the main differences I see from last year's kite to the new Rebel SLS is the material is much stiffer than the previous material. It gives the kite way more stability in the air especially in really strong winds, the arc of the kite doesn’t move, this is also down to the fact it's a five strut kite. The shape of the kite stays in its shape, so it’s a really good kite to ride overpowered. It’s an amazing kite for heavier people, it doesn’t matter how much power you have in your kite, it won’t deform, it will just keep its shape. With the smaller sizes, they are much more playful. The Rebel SLS is a hang time machine! When you think you are coming down, you still have a few more seconds in the air. It’s amazing for people who like to fly and want to have the extra hang time to do extra spins or tricks, it's an amazing kite.
