My 19m2 Core Riot XR2LW flies really great with 5 struts....
...side by side with V3 in no more than 5 knots...zero problem..no backing down
If the kite is well made and very light it will fly with 5 struts
My 19 is very agile and fast turning for it's size which is a plus in waves where i ride
And i am powered up and going upwind Easy in 8kn (7-8-9kn ) max
So i can imagine this kite (21) will get you going Easy in one knot less (6-7-8kn) max
That is what i call milking the low end
