Here we go ! Something new, at long last, from Messrs Tien and Mayet of Atelier kites, the “Slash”. This kite was spied at the recent Stella Plage event and the promo video has caused a great deal of forum excitement and you’ll see for yourselves below.
Ramlal hopes the kite will be in stores by the end of the summer, when the new Atelier website will be unveiled. However, it can ordered now by emailed Ramlal directly. The price is 370 euros.
This Slash video is something special, like all Atelier videos. In the hands of Mathieu not only are the tricks exemplary, but for good measure there’s dramatic scenery and spectacular new camera angles, from on the kite itself and along side it in the air.
