Well I have not found an upper range on the 9 yet..on the 12 I had it out in maybe 25 mph, and it wasn't really an issue. The 14 I had out almost similar wind..but the issue I had then wasn't really the wind strength it was how gusty it was...when I ride in off shore winds the wind here is 5 - 25 mph...this kite handles it as well as any other kite if not better and the hangtime is unreal.Claudiokite wrote:What is the wind range of these babies?
in 9m, 12 and 14m for a 75 kg on TT?
yes most definitely not a c kite. If you are looking for a c kite the torch would be your kite. The closest bridled kite Naish has to a c kite would be the Park. They are all great kites. Depends on what you want to use the kite for.Claudiokite wrote:thanks tautologies, quite a big wind range more SLE than C i would say from your comment.
anybody tried the 9 in 25/30 knots?
you'll see how different the kite looks once it is in the air. Windrange is huge. Very good control on the kites too. The hangtime is unreal. I wouldn't use it for unhooked but it is a great kite to learn new tricks on because the loops are forgiving the hangtime gives you plenty of airtime and overall kite is controllable.Claudiokite wrote:Yes i wouldn't look at this as a frrestyle kite. But i like the idea of a high aspect ratio and the C like shape ...for a racing/freeride so that can be used for boosting. But I was afraid that the range would be too narrow given the AR... Need to try one of these bad boys
