As Airstyle is a powered style of riding I'd be interested to know experience of wind range in cold weather i.e. 5 Celsius?

Depends also on your skills, weight and board size.

I think I can take it to 22 knots in gusts...

Colder air is harder...more powerful.

But, I assume so, don't know it for sure, and hopefully never will ;-)

I do ride 10 years from +7 till +40C locally and never felt difference. The wind just become stronger with more density because of temp dropped. But when fly on powered paraglider I felt about 15-20% power more in +10C then in +40C. :yes:
