Cowboy and I are looking for a custom colour pattern. Not complex (two colours, heavy on one colour over the other), but if there is a separate list for that then that is the list we will want to get on. I am not looking for delivery until April, but Paul wants his sooner like maybe December or January.

Just spied some Zens on the webcam, I think! :)

Tough day for the web cam. Looking into the sun, there was a lot of glare.

Those weren't actually the Zens there, though. Ben brought one out on the learn to fly field, which in those pictures would be in the foreground and to the right. That area had some pretty squirrely winds. Light enough that the regular 1.5 size Revs were taking some work to fly, but yeah, that Zen just wants to be in the air. Felt really good.

Aye, the camera glare was awful at that time of day! :/

Even though they weren't Zens, it's a good thing they were white or I may not have seen them. If you look really closely you can see a red and white Kitelife Rev in one of the pics. :)

Will have a new promo video later today, featuring our FINAL prototype for the Zen... I'm overjoyed to tell you, this is easily THREE TIMES the kite that some of you tested at WSIKF, Baz and I have locked it all in with some help Steve de Rooy, thoroughly tested by the whole iQuad team... This one is so much better, we're actually shelving our old team set of Zens. :D

Look at the loading during rotation and transitions, simply awesome.

Flies like a slightly slower B-Series 1.5, less springy/zippy, but with more expansive controls and smoothness of handling.

Never mind the light wind abilities, above and beyond!

FYI, let's make this really clear... You cannot order these yet, there is no color info available, no specs, so relax. ;)

News will hit here first when they're available for order, recurring contacts with Rev or your retailers will only serve to annoy.

Y'all know what I mean... It's all good, just wait it out, they'll be here soon enough.

Thanks!

I want to stress, the Zen is only *slightly* slower than it's 1.5 cousin...

We've been able to tune it to get very good speed back in, it was a tad slow before.
