Here are some creative people that could possibly deliver some fresh designs.
What color options are available for the new element V2? Black or white only or fresh colors?

Here is a sample of the EV2 visual graphics. Color options (if any) will show in the warehouse availability. New fabrics and colors are expected in future model releases but not EV2's. Cheers!

I need to see a smaller kite than a 7m!!

I love my 9m, but on many occasions, including Maui, was way over powered. So lets have a 6m or 5m model for 30+ kt days!!!!!!!

Keep up the good work.

How exactly do we ask these questions of Felix? Just as I was building up my piggy bank to drop some coin on some new Nitro 2's, along comes the Element 2 announcement!

Will the Element 2 still have the light wind relaunch advantage over the Element?
Will the Nitro 2 still be a more grunty, better low end kite?
Will the Element 2 retain power through a turn significantly, or marginally better than Element 1?

@silas.miller - EV2 5sqm is in production.

@Mariomazz - depends on shipping to warehouses but estimated in next 2 weeks. Sorry cannot be more specific.

@vaalprando - many positive improvements in EV2 series.

@norriegga - Go to Switch Facebook and join the chat at the specified times. EV2 re-launch is better than EV1. NV2 builds power through apparent wind. EV2 builds power through lower aspect presentation of area. EV2 is more powerful than EV1. Size-by-size NV2 and EV2 are closer than before in low-end power but have a different characteristic. EV2 is not as pivotal and retains power better in turns than EV1. This is partly a matter of user set-up as the EV2 has optional settings which effect turning speed and power/type of turn. The EV2 is much closer to the NV2 than EV1 in this regard but has better de-power than NV2. Good to join the chat with Felix as he has substantial time on all three (EV1, EV2, NV2.)

Is it a very different kite than the V1?

I have a V1 11 m, and wanted to buy a V1 9m, only to find out that it's out of stock and the V2 is on it's way.

So it's gonna be a V2 7 or 9 m. But I wouldn't like it if I have to adjust my technique too much when I switch sizes...
