Re: Why you shouldn't buy a switch kite anymore

For a kite that you didn't even develop. I wouldn't call that cheap. .... The other brands payed for the development costs ofcourse.

Re: Why you shouldn't buy a switch kite anymore

[Admin Edit: Competitors advertisement removed. Please note that the Switch bar currently sells for the equivalent of £286. With taxes/duty in Europe running at 20-22% the landed cost should be approx £350] This is when you realise that you could buy a Duotone kitebar (one of the best in the indust...
