The only way to have custom sails made... Far as I know:

1) Order them directly through Revolution (i.e. the Gibians, etc).

2) Order a solid color sail from Rev, and have someone do applique work on it.

Patents, copyrights and such.

Personally, I like the assurance of a true Revolution... ;)

Just received my custom REV 1.5 and thrilled with my decision to order without the mylar panels.
Now I'm looking to get a vented version to ad to my new collection

I'm now having the difficult decision of choosing between getting a vented 1 or 1.5  (for those slightly windier days) for my next REV addition. (15 to 28 mph winds)

Not much information on the vented REV 1's, so I'm assuming this is not a model flown by many. Perhaps that's that's just my misconception. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

One pro for getting a vented 1.5 is you can swap in your non-vented 1.5 frame(s) and have more flexibility with respect wind speed.

That's what I decided to do.  I should have a custom vented 1.5 coming soon.  That will give me  vented and non-vented sails and about 3-4 frames to mix and match.  I love this flexibility with Revs.

Since my last post in here, I have acquired a custom colour 1.5 vented, which turned out great and flies like a dream :D
In the meantime I have also acquired a used Rev 1 Sedgewick (Thanks monkey :wink: )
I now plan to order a custom colour SS as well as a 1.5 SUL to ad to my fast growing Rev collection. :D

Whats the extra cost involved with getting a custom coloured one?

If its not to much i might think about getting a custom Rev B-series....Is that possible?

If your interested, Kite Connection of Huntington Beach in California has in stock, custom colours on his Rev 1.5 custom.

I have a custom 1.5 SUL due any day now, and previously bought a custom vented. Call or email Revolution and you might be pleasantly surprised that it isn't all that much more expensive.

When I recently ordered, I asked if I could order a custom B-series and was told not for a few more months, but perhaps I misunderstood. It can't hurt to ask. Lolly is a pleasure to deal with at Revolution.

Alex R, "in stock" and "custom" don't really go together, do they? ;)

I have now done several designs for Rev and have a few more on the way.
You can find the designs that I do for Revolution on my website.

Bazz,
Your custom "Twisted" design series sails are awesome! Nice work on your other single line kites too!

Is it just me, or wouldn't an all white sail be kind of hard to see while flying?
