How dose RPM match heavy riders like me 270lb

Postby Thorbjorn » Mon Mar 09, 2009 11:41 am

Today am using my rev 11 and 15m. I like waving riding and I need lots of powers.

Do I get more power in a 14m Rpm Compare to my Rev 15m?

The Rev will give you more power than RPM
What's the lowest wind you can ride with your 15?

If over 200LBS...then test a 13M EH Eze or a 12M EH Beast or for waves 14M ripper (Ripper min 15knots), you will never look back.
