I am very interested in this kite. Is something like an Ozone C4 or Core GTS? Does it have bridles?

OpenC is a term made up by Slingshot for a bridled C-kite with short wingtips, hence 'open' . GTS is similar, but slightly longer tips, so they call it 'future C' lol.

Krypto looks to be a regular bridled C much like the C4, but optional without the bridle and with a 5th line.

It's 5 strut bridled C kite. The bridle is removal similar to the C4. GTS/RPM/Dice is 3 strut so hopefully this is more freestyle orientated. MJ even rides his Nitro's bridleless with 5th line though, so will have to see what they end up selling it with a removal-able bridle.

I am also super excited about this kite. I'm in the market for something like this after destroying my much loved Legacy. Can someone from switch cime in and let us know if it'll be out before the season starts here in April?

Here is the image switch put up of the kite over the RedBull KOTA if you missed it.

Just a thought ... I know you guys are trying to tease the customers and are so proud to show what's coming to us in the future but maybe you should hold on to your products until they are close to ready to ship ... Apple usually opens preorders a few days after official keynote and products are in store within 10 days... C4 was a very very long coming, Krypto has now gotten us all excited and it is only coming Aug ? at best ... and the board also waiting long long time ...
