the x2 didnt imigrate to israel ,so i want to hear more details on this kite .
first did some one used the 14m or bigger sizes. with my poor experience small kites like the ab-8.4 ,takoon 8.5 ,f-1 12 can be very powerfull in good to exellent winds just killers , so the only diffrent is the pilot (kiter) preference , and by the way usually this kites are to fast for doing trikes ,do you thinke the x2 will provaid good performance on big sizes and do the power is equal to the arx or like the f-1 the power is provaided by moving the kite???

I didn't fly it myself yet in bigger sizes (14+).
I heard the X2 in 16 will turn as fast as an ARX 11.5. This can be true, since the 12.0 turns like an ARX 9.5.
The 12.0 has more power than the 11.5. It starts almost as early as my old ARX 15.5.
So everytime I can use the 12 instead of the 15.5, I will!
Maybe I can tell you more next week about bigger sizes.
