it has a very short depower and I heard it really doesn't have that much Depower range like other kites.

Anyone with the same opinion?
Its rhino2 a bad option? my kite will come without the rhino2 bar, should it depower more with a normal depower bar?

I would like to ear some opinions.. and what about kite perfomances?

don't get me wrong, Rhino2 is a great option for bigairs and long hangtime!
But I guess it has a smaller range than others (Takoon, F-one...) and another bar won't do.

So the kite gets overpowered first then the other kites? does that happen in all sizes? im buying a 12m what is the wind range for this kite? . The older rhinos also had less depowering the the other kites.

So what size do i need to ride on 12-24 knots? 10m or 12m? My 16m kite its confortable in 8-15(16) knots. What size should i get to keep riding (confortable) on 13-21 knots?

12 is a good size and good combination with the 16.0.

will start from 13-24 knts, assuming your are not too light nor too heavy (70-90 kgs)

The Rhino2 like the X2 have a very stiff profile which has been made for jump and hangtime performance. So they create a lot of power.
But have to test it personally to be 100% sure abut what I'm writting.
But I guess it is similar to the X2 and if you are an advanced to good rider, you can make the windrange bigger if you have a board which you can edge hard.

You won't make a mistake buying the Rhino2 !

Have fun
Toby

Don't mistake top end for range. You need low end too. Compare total range. People get excited over kites with high top end and rave about range, but nobody points out how much low end has been given away to get it. Compare total range and the answer might be different for a lot of kites.
