Jorgen, Do you feel you have maintained the flight characteristics with yours compared to the original version? They look excellent too, by the way.

The frame is close and shouldn't change the character of the kite but the roll bars are an interesting change. I've thought of trying them on the Mohawk XS but didn't want to mess with a good thing. I really want to try your version of the kite.

Have you made a UL yet?

Very nice stuff indeed ;D

Having seen Jorgens Seven up close I know his stuff is A Grade. That's why I bought one of the XS's, can't wait to get my hands on it ;D

The pre-XS Mo' was rollbarred.

I think what we all need to do is buy up the production rights to our favourite old kites and send them to Sweden  ;)

Any flight reports on these yet?

The winds down under have been gale force lately, not to mention the inches of drenching rain. Should the weather gods give us a break, then I'm sure there will be something in the works  ;)

Hey all
Does any of you have an opinion on what kites you could compare the mohawk xs with? I'd really like to know a little about how it performs :)

Yeah, sorry, I've got a review in the works but haven't had time to finish it off yet.  Busy time of year.
