Combat V2 11m & 13m

My first C-shaped kite for some years. Delivers great amount of pop and slack in the lines. The mini-5 line is perfect to soften the pull after missing an unhooked trix. Depowers the kite and the pull after a missed trix is not so hard.
Really rock solid build quality. The kite has lots of reinforcement points and is really durable.
Re-launch is pretty easy if you compare with old C-kites.
Some people complain about the kite being a bit slow. I found that it was just a matter of rigging the kite correctly. In my opinion the kite flies perfectly on the leading-edge-most knot (the knot on the pigtails closest to the LE). Then you get nice response and bar-feel without any back-stall. Nice and easy one-pump system with a big one-way valve. Kite is inflated in no time!
Great rucksack shaped bag. Expandable and big enough.
Durable and simple bar that holds up!
All this to a great price!

Element 7m2

Great kite that suits most riders and styles. Performs nicely in the waves and gives you a nice response on the bar so that you feel wheres the kites at in all situations. Turns nicely in the air and feels like the right combo of a C-shaped kite and a SLE-kite.Great wind range and depower!
Easy to relaunch with small effort. Several different configurations available by choosing different knots on front and rear edge of the tips.
The bar is simple but in a robust and efficient design. Smart solution to adjust the distance to the depower strap which suits all different arm lengths. Great build quality in kite, bar and bag. The bag is the best I have seen on the market. Real rucksack feeling with a nice option to expand the bag.
The kite holds up the shape in the air even though very overpowered or in really gusty situations.
