Everyone has slightly different ways of letting customers know whats in the works.
Look at DJI.
Everyone has been waiting for the phantom5 drone for 1.5 years. There has been lots of speculation out there. When it will come out and what it will do. In the meantime releasing other drones to keep you somewhat interested until the big one comes along.
Marc show cased this Kite at KOTA we thought is was only right to give you some kind of E.T.A
A lot goes into releasing a product so thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.
Regards
Felix.

How different is this from the Legacy? Is it essentially the same shape with bridal points, or are there more refinements?

This is completely new design.
It retains the same line slack for wake tricks
Brings faster turning speed.
Ease of use
4 line use with bridal
5th line adaptable.
Better looping for mega loops as show cased in KOTA.

The legacy is a kite that specializes in line slack for handle pass animals.

Regards
Felix.

Per Felix's comments, he says "July -Aug 2018" Hopefully that means soon

Well I am guessing an August release of the krypto is out of the window :roll: . Poor choice to stop making the legacy 2 would have sold quite a few more in this time while your taking forever to release a new kite to replace it ( money lost) . I know your becoming a company to make things standard in terms of parts so you can make things cheaper and up the price while at the same time reducing innovation by standardising your products. This should mean in theory you can release products quicker :lol: ......... Being a parachute designer myself I can't see why you have such holdups.
