Yes, i got the super light 12m, not a lightwind kite. The old model gets you going earlier.

interesting your feedback in light winds ...
I saw one 15m flying and foiling easily in 7 knots. Remarkably high Aspect Ratio for a LEI ... from the tester the speed is similar to chrono v2 (which is encouraging even in case it was exagerated I do not know...)

Yes a Friend of mine got the 15m , 7 knots is about the lowest you can go on the 15m, and I can go with the older 12m in the same wind. Just the upwind angle it's much better in the new kite. The 15m it's super slow turning, be ready for that.

Thanks I have 12 voyager 3 and can get going in 8 kts but I was thinking of the 15 one strut to get out in less wind but maybe in dreaming .

I fly Storm Voyagers 3 strutless. Both 12 and 15. I use them for foiling. In my opinion the 15 is useable in much less wind than the 12. I'm app. 80 kg and riding a Moses Fluente and Vorace setup. I know you can move a smaller kite faster around, but a downstroke with 30 m lines on the 15 gets you going in next to no wind. I'll say that 6-7 knots are my limit with the 15 m.

With the 15 you can go out in the same wind, not lower, just with more power and more upwind.
