Hi guys,
I have the naish x2 14.0 and want to order a smaller one.

Which option do you think that is better, the x2 10 or the x2 8 if i want to be able to hold it untill 26-28 knods.No more.

Has anybody tried the x2 8?? Is it too fast or is it OK?

I am intermediate rider and my weight is about 80 kg.

Bye :smile:

Hi,

in Hungary we had winds of 7 Bft with gusts reaching 9 Bft. When the wind got weaker one guy was using an X2 8. I was using an ARX 9.5.
IMO - based on the experience yesterday - the X2 10 would be definitly far too big for winds around 28 knots.
That wouldn't be a kite-session, but rather a fight for survival.
When the wind was 28-35 knots one guy went in with a Wipika 6.3, but in the gusts even he had problems. The X2 8 has more pull then the Wipika 6.3 due to its profile. Don't go over 8!
