Hi guys,

after a lot of trouble, I am getting my X2 10 and 14. I am still looking for a light wind kite, since the X2 20 I ordered apparently won't be shipped before August!
I was offered an Airush Lift 16 at an attractive price. Is it worth buying? Is there another kite I should consider as an X2 replacement? May be a Fuel 18??
Cheers
Nico

maybe the F-One 18.1 will be good for you.
But I don't know if it will have that much more power than the X2 in 14.0.

Toby, can you help me to find an X2 20 in the near future? I am very frustrated about all these delivery problems.

don't ask me, I'm still waiting for my 16.0 to arrive or to be produced! :mad:

As soon as I hear something about an X2 20.0 I will inform you.

The delay in X2 delivery is due to production problems and is somewhat worldwide...although I have heard that there larger sized X2s available in spain...specificallly in Tarifa. Dont know if that helps but....

I don't think you can say Spain if you talk about Tarifa, as I have a shop in Spain, made a pre-order as any shop and I'm still waiting for the first X2 to be delivered...

We have received our X2 20's.

Great kite, turns incredibly and there is no down wind pull from the kite.

Steve, how fast is "turns incredible"?
To which ARX size could you compare its turning speed?

thx
Toby

Faster than ARX11.5, faster than Aero14.

It basically turns 180 degrees. From going diving directly down towards the sea, you can do a 180 degree turn upwards.

The kite jumps upwards from 10 o'clock, my previous kites would jump sidewards from this angle.

I have only used the kite once in 8 to 10 knots.
