Hi I got a Rhino II 12.00 and now I'm wondering to buy a bigger one (last year I had a Rhino 16.00) a 20.00 or a 18.00. I'm 90kg for 192cm (198,4 lbs foor 6,4fts)and I use a Jimmy Lewis 155cm (5,1 fts) which one do you suggest me?
Which are the maximum wind range limit of both kites?
Thanks folks

It may be hard to find anybody how knows the answer to that question, so I will tell you what little I do know.

I have been riding a Toro2 18m prototype. I weigh 83 kg and have had several great sessions on it in 18-21 knots (20-23 mph) steady wind. This would have been my limit with the 16m Rhino1. It was easy with this kite, plus I was jumping super high, way higher than my Rhino1 16m. The relevance is that I’ve been told the current Rhino2 18m has even more range. My kite is not the final version going in production by the way. It wouldn’t surprise me to see people riding the 20m in those winds, but that’s a guess on my part. A 20 to 12 kite gap still sounds big though. I have a 20m Rhino2 that I have not ridden yet. The kite handles on the beach like a small kite. I think it’s a big boys dream kite. 20 meters that feels like a sweet 16 meter.
