Edgar Ulrich got his hands a little earlier on the EVO SLS and shows us the potential of this kite in his latest clip "BLOWMINDER". We caught up with him where he tells us about all the playgrounds for the new EVO SLS.
Do you feel having the stiffer structure that the Penta TX provides gave you additional confidence and comfort knowing it would come through the loop?
For sure! The materials are stronger, rigid and everything you need to have 100% control of your kite. It’s everything I need to improve in every session.
How nervous were you?
I think everyone watching had adrenaline just watching! I was full of adrenaline. I was doing some loops before in the session, going bigger and higher each time. Going for that S loop I was just thinking of Ruben’s (Lenten) video from ten years ago. Seeing him do that S loop I knew I wanted to do it one day. It felt easier to go for it on the snow with the extra height. I just went for it, I was filled with adrenaline and it all went pretty good!
What upcoming projects do you have coming up for this year?
This year still seems a little complicated due to the pandemic. I’m not going to follow the GKA tour this year, I’m planning to focus on videos and some fun riding projects. I plan to do some trips around the world and do some riding for myself.
