Were the any challenges along the way?
There weren’t challenges so to speak, more a dedication to achieve a perfectly balanced kite which takes time. From the Team’s perspective, the Vegas already delivered all aspects needed to take them to the top - precise handling, unhooked pop and performance, boosting potential and impressive looping abilities. As balance is a primary requirement for riders, my approach was to evaluate the design features on the kite as well as production and materials to see how I could optimise it.
What are the main design and performance updates for this year’s model?
There was no need to make any drastic changes to the 2019 model, but as I mentioned before, this offered a unique opportunity look at each component of the kite individually and see how it could be fine tuned to contribute towards perfect balance overall.
