This is not my video. I uploaded this because at the time, there were very few videos of stunt kites on youtube. Credit goes to the pilot: Erich Vogl and camera: Brigitte Gstottner
Genesis Stunt kite made by Level one kites. This is a trick kite that is made to do alot of insane moves that I can't even do on my genesis.

The center T is one of the new aluminum type that Level One has been using with some of their kites. Hooray they decided not to use the TWS system on the Genesis! There is weight though but it is a total of 12 grams fixed at the nose. The Genesis has a deep sail the standoffs are much longer than say the JTM they almost remind me in length to the New Age. Also another thing strikes me about the Genesis is that it seems to have a fairly long tail compared to many of their other kites. The bridle is a simple 3-point with quick adjustment knots at the upper spreader connectors and also at the center T if you want to shorten up your turning inputs. One of the nice things about the bridle is that it is not too long it does not get caught on the tail at all. There is a leech line in the TE to subdue any noise. The spreader connectors are Avia's. The Leading Edges have some curve to them. The standoff to sail connection area has some mylar re-enforcement to it.
