WHAT‘S NEW ON JUICE 2017?
March, 14th 2017
The new Juice has a shorter bridle for lower risk of bridle tangles. Also, it has more segments in the center of the kite for a rounder profile entry and more consistent profile throughout the center of the kite. This ensures rounder turning, a smoother bar feel, enhanced wind range
and prevention against back-stalling.

ADDITIONAL FACTS FROM THE DESIGNER KEN WINNER:
What are the main updates we can see on the 2017 Juice?
KW: This year we went for a shorter bridle. We also spent quite a bit of time working on ideas for (a) better power and upwind ability and (b) lower weight. Getting better power and upwind ability in a big kite is hard to do, and the Juice is already quite good in those areas. Interestingly, the thing that improved power the most was cutting weight. The lighter kite not only hangs in the air and turns better, but it also has a faster upstroke (when a kite climbs after a dive). This faster upstroke gives more apparent wind, which delivers more power. So the bottom-line is that a lighter kite is a more powerful kite.
What tips do you have for the settings on the Juice?
KW: The Juice is very straight forward. The back bridle offers a soft, quick-turn setting for riders who want the fastest possible turning. The harder
setting is for the rider who likes more solid bar feel.
