I just found the attached image showing 'long arms' flying with the Shockwave. Note the horizontal handles. This will work with the Zen I suspect.

Looks like you are on the Donauinsel(Danube Island) in Vienna, Austria.

So we've all seen the pre-orders have started but anyone heard anything with regards to the Zens price yet?!

Someone somewhere say back when...they'd believed it to be in the b-series pro price range.
I see GCKC have it at $440 cad kite only....with 'New this December' woooo :blink:

Yep, the Zen is $440, and I believe 'kite only'. New rods are still being tested, to my understanding, but close - Very close!

I have several on order as soon as they're ready, if any of you are ready!! ;)

I would certainly hope that for $440.00 it will come with rods. I probably would not buy if it doesn't. $400.00 was my limit. I'd reach to the $440.00, but not another $100 or so for rods.

Tentative price on the Zen is $440.00 USD. This includes the complete kite (with one set of specialized ZEN rods) and bag. Lines, handles, DVD and all other accessories are sold separately.

Just look at macrumors.com before any imminent Apple release....it just goes nuts!!!!

hi all.
can someone tell me why the Zen (the white one) is made up of all them pannels.
if it is a light wind kite, would it not make sense to make it out of 3 pieces, rev logo in the middle and pannel on each side.
cannot understand why rev make full colour kite with all those pannels, like the custom black or white ones.
all the best steve.

Think you will find that as the Zen is like a B it is to do with channeling the wind and panel stretch.

I have a couple of single piece type sails with some old rev 2's (just love those solid colours) and the sails tent to make a different shape when in the air to other sails that are made up of numerous parts.

Hope this is right??

I do believe Baloo is correct. The way the sail fills and stretches is different on a sail with multiple panels, rather than a sail with 1 or three panels.

I fully agree!
Precise details are only known by the designers of Zen. I doubt they would be willing to reveal them in order to protect it from some far east pirates.
