From 20 knots to 35 maybe. Probably the same range as most skinny, fast 10ms.

So about 25 knots would be the sweet point ......its not often we got 30 knots wind where I ride..... more common is 17-24 Anyone tried it in the lower or upper register that have some thoughts :bye:

Not that i've flown the 05 but the 10m black tip 03 kite i could just tip toe on the beach in 28-30 knots over that you need a mate to hold you back or eat more pies. i'm the same weight as you.I'd say 35 knots is a little ambitious
Your right though 23-27 knots i'd say is the sweet spot for a High aspect cabrinha 10m.

Sorry forget to say ::kitesurf 73 In the 17-24 knot area i'd be pumping up a 12m. That wind range would be spot on :bye:

Kitesurf, he does not do much jumping at all yet, he has just started the sport. He is having a blast at high speed though, even in those light conditions.
Scillyairhead, that 05 kite has the prospan feature, this gives a much bigger range than the previous years models, and it still is a sick jumping/flying tool.

So Nico what would be the low limit for that kite for a 75 kg rider on 140 *37 board i mean if you hook in and sine it during lulls ....as an ex i can get going on my airblast 8,4 from around 14 knts hooked and sining a little......What do you think the nitro 10 low limit are...... :bye:

At a guess 12-14 knts would get you going.
