Well.... the Legacy is appearing in the 'make an offer' section, so it should be a matter of days/weeks.

My guess is that because Mark Jaycobs is working on adding wakeboarding skills, the design team is probably taking the opportunity to look hard at cross-over features for the Legacy which is aimed primarily at wakeboard style. It will be interesting to see how the differences stack up for the new one. I think wake-boarding uses a lot of handle passes so I'd expect a combination of stability with one handed low effort turning?

I have ridden a Legacy 2 in the 8m size and couldn't pick any difference in feel from the original Legacy. That is a good thing IMHO, the Legacy 1 10m and 8m are hands down the best kites I have ever ridden. The Legacy 2 has bigger struts to aid relaunch and the trailing edge looks more scalloped to me.
