I am happy to say that the new Fulcrum quad is finally done and we are taking orders on customs that are sewn by the master kite maker Ken McNeill . I have to say the finish on the sails is outstanding. I am so happy to be working with Ken as our sailmaker on this project . After three years of working with Carl Robertshaw as the designer and collaborating on the development of the Fulcrum it is nice to see it moving into the market.
Customs can be done using the outline on the Sky Burner web site. I know Carl has limited what can be done with colors,but there are reasons that make good sense . You can always go for one of our standard color combinations. The customs come with a new 3 piece light weight  frame I have developed . You can also order the standard with the UL frame for an intro offer of $25.00. This frame along with the standard gives you a really nice wind range UL 2 to 3 mph on the low end up to 8 mph top. In this range the kite is really what I call snappy .  The standard frame is good for the 4 to 18 mph winds.  This kite is a puller in big wind.  There is a vent and super vent model coming soon. It has been a joy learning how to fly something new. I think this kite represents a new place in multiline sport kites. This kite for it's first time out won Masters quad at this years AKA Nationals.       For more info you can find it on www.kitesandfunthings.com   Jon T

325$ for a standard is a nice price point! Interested to get my hands on one
Well done Jon Carl and Ken!

Curious, I would imagine flying this with 85' or 120' linesets would be ok?

Anything from 10' to 250' should be doable. 85' or 120' would be my first choices.

I'm  a bit curious as to why full color customization isn't available.
I played with the colorizer for a while, came up with color schemes I really enjoyed only to find that not a one of them could be done.

Carl set the color combo rules.  My custom wasn't allowed and I haven't found a combo I like Embarrassed
Guess I could always mod it myself Tongue
