They have not released the Speed4 in the larger sizes yet because, as I understand, it will not be just a scaled up "'bigger' version of the 8m & 10m. The aspect ratio will likely be higher, closer to that of the current Speed3's.
My point was that they have a performance target for the line. The different sizes of the kite will be designed differently, to achieve consistent performance no matter the size of the kite.
Flysurfer has done this before, with the Psycho4, and if memory serves me correctly, Ocean Rodeo has also done this on some smaller kites, tweaked the design a bit in the smaller sizes to make them fly better.. Now that I think of it, I guess more than a few are doing this with their big light wind kites too...
Edited: meant higher, not lower
