SUMMARY: ...If you’re looking for an ultra-versatile, larger size for your quiver that you can still make a lot of shapes with, across a really wide spectrum of winds and manoeuvres, this deserves a look!

KW LIKED: ‘Go anywhere, do anything’ performance from a kite that feels light, playful and fast (while remaining very accessible), even in a bigger size.

Product Review, RRD -

SUMMARY: 

There are two sides to the Religion for different riders. Because the low end and power generation is good, lighter or strapless riders can enjoy getting on a small kite early while strapped or bigger riders can take advantage of the strong pull and power that the Religion is capable of at its top end. There are a lot of soft and / or super forward flying kites on the market. The Religion is still treading its own path, is incredibly strong and can pretty much be what you want it to be if you size it right. 

KW LIKED: 

Improved response, a lighter bar impulse and super-tough build quality.
