I know but you can't do the embarrassed smiley in the Trade section; however in my defence these go beyond anything I tried when I switched from bridles myself. Far better than the Primes (of that time) and definitely better than other C-hybrid / open-C designs I have tried.
In general I think the black art of bridling has come a long way, but Airush seem to have the right input to the design process from the right type of rider. Also taking nothing away from the designer they possibly got a little bit lucky with last year’s 9m Wave (it was supposed to be solely a wave kite) and being able to deconstruct that and blend components of it across the range?
That said they are not and never will be Razors, but the gap between them has become very narrow and for mortal riders there really is no compromise… only benefit IMO.
A well powered VX and a Monk make for an awesome pairing :-)
