The kite in that video is a Rev 1.5 SLE (http://www.revkites....on-sle-standard). This particular model would have been made some time around 2003-2010ish. I don't think the newer 1.5 SLEs come with the mylar panel or in those colors any more, but I'm sure you can find one. If anything you can always custom order it.
I'm not too sure about UK retailers, so I'll let someone from across the pond chime in on that one.

Thanks for the above reply.I have been interested in Revs for a while now mostly power-kite but would very much love to add one of these to my quiver so to speak to add a new dimension.You mention custom order how do I go about doing that?Any links or further info would be great.

Thanks

Watty your pretty close there. That particular color scheme(with Mylar), one of my favorites, was produced from 2002/03 through 2006. The Mylar was dropped as of 2007.

Welcome KITE,

Where in the UK do you stay? there is almost certainly Rev fliers that would like to meet up with you wherever may be in the country/world!

Although it does not have the mylar in it, our Night! B-Series is very close to those colors.

This is an exclusive color combo from our shop but we do ship world wide.

I would definitely go for the Night B Series over the one you saw in the video that has the Mylar.
