This is a phenomenal kite! No doubt, if you are looking for a performance quad line kite, this is it! Based on the original Rev 1.5 design, the John Barresi Signature Series is the ideal choice for any hard core precision or competition flier. After 16 years of competition and seven national quad line championships, John has utilized a number of modifications and features which make this a true high performance package.
The sail is paneled with two specific goals in mind…As the standard sail stretches over time, the grey panels will actually begin to channel wind vertically, increasing precision. To keep you competitive, the B-Series comes with two frames… One 2-wrap (SUL) and one 3-wrap (UL), giving you the versatility of being able to switch your frames based on the current wind, and you can also slide your SUL leading edge rods in parallel with the UL leading edge when the wind is up, effectively doubling your leading edge strength.
The B-Series handles are 13" long, and come with a pre-tied adjustment knot system which enables you to increase or decrease the reverse control.
Last but not least, the B-Series also comes with a weight kit… Two 2 gram lead weights fit neatly into the end of your spars, and are secured with a short tail.
Vented: Adding the vented to your collection not only expands your wind range, it also gives you the ability to switch back and forth between the four total frames which come with the vented and standard... Ever flown a vented with 2 wrap spars in 8 mph? If not, you really must give it a try!
