Hi,

Does anyone know if the 2012 liquid force envy wind range is real :?: Because it is too wide, for example, the 12m wind range is 9-25 knots.

Tks :D

Yeah, there's no way you're powered in 9 knots, but I took my 12m out all the time in 10-11 knots. It would give you enough power to throw tricks riding downwind. going upwind and powered in about 12 knots

the kites are so light that they'll fly pretty well before others will, so as long as you're also light enough you can ride.

btw im 145 lbs and ride the LF nova 133x41 when I need the extra low end


one other thing though is that if you're light enough to make 9kn your low end, there's no way 25 knots is your high end unless you're on a 120cm board. about 20-22 knots is my max, but im riding my 9 before then anyway.

And what with the high end? Is it real? Pretty high for a 12m kite...? I would expect rather 21-22 knts.

As dyyylan sad, it depends of raider weight, board, and your tolerance of being overpowerd. 60kg raider might struggle in 20 knots, a 120kg raider might still be comfortable riding it in 25 knots. You gain 1 knot in low end you lose 2 in high end,...

But envy do have a wade wind range.
