Looks like Airush are providing Two bridles with the lastest incarnation of the Wave.
Letting the rider choose which one they prefer.
airush.com/kites/wave-v8/
Looking forward to reviews that try both bridles from some surf riding experts

Great kite to settle the pulleys vs no-pulleys debate that pops up every now & then.

will be the next kite I buy. Never even considered airush before, frothing to have an extra bridal to experiment on.

Hope Ozone has some amazing graphics and colors for the Reo V5. Hard to believe they will improve on the V4. One thing they could offer, and that changes the kite's feel and usability significantly, is line extensions. Those 25m lines really give range to the kite, but 23s make wave riding much better. Airush's pulley or not to pulley solution sounds interesting as it could make the kite into a true cross over kite, one that excels in waves and freeride. With a pulley, the slight delay in turn response and tighter back lines with a less on off depower might help boosting and be less fatiguing on long tacks with a twin tip. But without, will it be a Reo?! I might have to jump ship, again. I love my Reo, but this sounds quite promising!

Wow how does one pimp the ozone Reo several times within a post on an Airush wave kite thread.

Just amazing really.
