Do you know from how many knots is the kite working and how stronger it is from the the 16m rhino (I about 90kg and my largest boerd is 175 tt f-one)

I own both kites. The 22.5 works in 7-8 knots for me, using the Underground SB 148x43. I weigh 83kg. I have ridden it in winds up to 15 knots. I use a short 52cm bar with 30m lines. This works fine. It jumps best when you get going very fast. I can jump 5 to 6 meters with it. That is the best I can jump with it. I prefer to use the 16m in winds over 12 knots. The 16m jumps much higher. I ride the 16m in winds up to 20 knots using the 147 WT.
