Well, you are in luck.
Do a search on this forum and check for Globerider.
You will see there are no bad reviews on this kite.
I ride them for some month now and am super stocked.
Very strong, very light, super fast, awesome lift, great controll, huge depower, no jerking around when a gust hits.
Just a damn good kite.

Again, just search this forum for them and youll see.

I have the 14.2 for more than a mounth now and i agree with PH this is an excellent kite. My windrange on this kite is 12-24 knots(i am 90kg and ride a TT 168). Beleive i or not i had to relaunch it only once so i cannot commend on relaunching. Construction is very good too but the lack of valves in the strutts makes it a bit difficult to inflate them super tight.

Before that i used the Scoop 14.3 for a sort period and i can say that the GK Lift has the same or even better performance in jumps (a lot of vertical lift and good hangtime with soft landings) while it is more friendly and easy to handle. Just get a good deal and go for it, i bought mine in a very good price.
