What we like:

The 2013 Envy works well in every size. With the proven Diamond Wingtip and USB Bridle (pulley on the wing tip) you get a real feeling of security with surprisingly few kite inversions or bridle tangles. The complete package of the CPR bar, Max Flow inflation system and a simple easy to use 3 strut kite make the Envy a clean and user-friendly product.

What we don't like:
With the Envy being a fatter full profile kite you get to a point where the kite will not depower anymore because the kite has too much drag. By adding more low end power, you loose some high end on the wind range. The zipper and side straps on the LF bags are junk. The bag works fine, but we have had a bunch of zippers break and side straps rip off.

Why you want the 2013 Envy:
The Envy is such a reliable kite. You will never find yourself blaming a bad session on the kite. As you progress your kiteboarding level, you will find that the Envy will have no problem keeping up with your next new move. Ask LF Team Rider Brandon Scheid why he rides the Envy, and he will tell you that all the features that work for beginners work for him as a top level pro rider.
