all I know is that they are fast compared to big kites of last year.
If you need bigger than 16 sqm I don´t know, but if you can you should try the bigger sizes to see if it is worth it.

A X2 doesn't depower as much as an Aero for example. If you need a big kite and the wind is often gusty, then you better get an Aero.

Above Anonymous says that the Aero depowers better than the X2.
Is that possible?
I thought that kites having a higher AR also have better depower capabilities and so can be used in a higher wind-range.

I know that the profile also plays a big role? So which is correct now?

O.K. I cant stand this anymore people who haven`t tried a bigger x2 telling storries because they might have an Aero and are jealous because they didn t wait for the x2.
I have the 18 for 2 weeks now and it is great : turns faster than my 13.5 arx and depower is realy good ,too. You can set the depowerline to more depower in strong Winds.

X2 depowers less than an Aero???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Get outta here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The whole idea of the high aspect is to be able to hold a bigger kite and depower it easilly but still have huge power when you want it. Leave me overpowered on any high aspect kite but don't make me sail overpowered on an aero. Please.....
