While overall the 2013 Rally looks very similar to the 2012 model it has received a big redesign for this year. The most obvious changes are the addition of two thin struts and a new bridle configuration.
The Switchblade is a medium aspect 5-strut kite marketed as an all-around performance kite. New for 2013 Cabrinha has introduced a new large-diameter inflation valve that is easier to use than the previous Cabrinha valve.
The Lithium has been a popular kite for the past few years and remains a fairly low-aspect 3-strut kite targeted as an all-around performer for 2013. Overall the kite is very similar to the 2012 model with some small refinements including flexible trailing edge battens to address trailing edge flutter and bridle adjustments to change the kite's turning speed and bar pressure.
Elevation Kiteboarding's Mark Bavis has been throwing unique tricks while kiting on his skimboard and Elevation is now offering the Beach Dog Kite Skim. A kiteboarding-specific skimboard, the Beach Dog Kite Skim is basically the same board that Mark has been riding.
