anyone knows which one of this kites generates more power in light wind ?
I think the X2 20 will get me going in wind only 2 knots lighter than the minimum wind for my X2 16.anyone tried the Aero2 20 ?

At the US dealer show they said the Aero2 was better than the x2 because it's a newer design. They also said the Aero2 is stronger pulling than the x2. The Aero2 was turning fast too.

My mate has a 20m Aero, thing pulls like a truck, on his 6 ft directional, he's going in 6-7 knots, upwind in 8-9 knots (he's 80kg I believe). No-one else even bothered to try and get on the water, even with a 20m X2 or Rhino 2.

After flying a 20m Rhino2 this weekend, I think you will have the most fun with one of these new big kites that handle like small kites did last year. The Aero2 should be similar to what I experienced with the Rhino2. A fun kite with great potential. It should be a kite I love to use, instead of one I resist using.

i have the X2 18..

i testet the aero 2 16,0 and it "pulls" more i light winds.

the stering is also faster, and is too fast for beginners, soo start in medium..Fast on the aero 2 means FAST...!!!

Wow the 20m AERO II gonna be something if the 16 if "too fast".

I'm the dude aklbob was talking about.... The AERO 20 does pull hard and it feels like driving a bus.... not that fast but really stable and stays putt....

I'm expecting the AERO II to be better but I just hope that it's kept the bottom end and hasn't become top ended like the X2...

I'M AFTER A 16M aero II and may even get the 20 for my big kites..... not even thinking about getting an X2 as I think I've got the best size for that kite (the 12).
