Convert IDS 2009 7m for 20-30 knots ?

Postby jedi1 » Mon Dec 28, 2009 8:21 pm

Looking at the wind range chart on Cabrinha site, Convert IDS 7m has little range compared to other sizes. I am looking for a kite to cover 20-30 knots for my 72 kg (159 lb) on a 135 twin tip.

So would Convert do well for such conditions? I'd like a kite with high depower, as usually when we get winds around 25 knots, it's gusting to 35 knots.

Looking at the wind range chart a 5m would probably do well, but 5m is a really small kite and the chart says that it has more low end than crossbow 7m. Seems pretty weird, but I am no kite designer.

So does anyone have any experience with the Convert 2009?

Jedi1,
The 7m Convert would easily handle 20-30knots and some... Another awesome option would be the Cabrinha 2009 6m Switchblade. This kite also does it all, wave riding, big boosting, great unhooked, and huge wind range. You really cant go wrong with either for a high wind kite.

the crossbow 2010 7m will be a pretty good fit for your size in 20-30 knots...

Thanks for your opinions. I'd really love a switchblade 6m, but that's out of my price range. I can get a nice deal on a second hand convert, that's why I'm asking.

Crossbow 2010 is way too expensive for my budget, but probably a great kite.
