Ocean Rodeo Flite Gen4, 3-struts light wind kite :

10 m² : 2.76 kg => 276 g/m²
14.5 m² : 3.3 kg => 226 g/m²
17 m² : 3.7 kg => 218 g/m²

I don't know the weight of the 12 and 8 but weight/surface seems to decrease while the surface increases.

One thing to consider is that the 8, 10 and 12 don't have the same construction as the 14.5 and 17 which are built to be very light :

The first thing I did when I received my brand new kites from the courier was weighting them:
Solo 12 2016 3.400 kg and
Solo 6.5 2015 2.375 kg
This way I'm sure no sand or water included in the weight :wink:

Note: Solo one strut, Cabrinha 5 struts.
The Solo 12 has the same weigth as the Cabrinha 10 - so I estimate that it has 20% better lift to weight ratio.

I hope I'll feel the drifting difference between them in 8-10 knots (hydrofoiling)
Under these conditions, the Switchblade doesn't forgive, one lull and down it goes.

I have 3 2014 ASV XR Race kites - 5 struts
5.5m = 2kg
15m = 3.5kg
18m = 4.1kg
They weigh slightly less now, after removing the double skin from the 15 and 18.

Hello All,

I discover this interesting thread ; In 2015, I built a table with all the weight I could gather from all forums, and still try to keep it updated. I think I shared it in another post on kiteforum (that I cannot recall) but it can be useful here.

I will uptade it with your good biscuits in this topic (just miss a bit of time currently).
