Deffinitly sounds like it has the range, as was confirmed by this review from another thread:
What parts are you most interested about?
The super quick turning, the unbelievable relaunch, the massive hang time, or the safety?
If the kite doesn't happen to be there, just ask anyone that tried it, I'm sure that they can help you out.
I'v flown the 9m saturday in 12 to 16mph wind range which was surprising,
because in that starting range I use the Rapture 15m.
Now I can confirm all the above it's true, no hype.
It has very similar flying and jumping technic as the Rapture,
so I got the hang of it right away.
It's a great kite and you could get away with a much smaller kite than normaly you'd be using.
The low end is unreal.
It has the range for sure,
but I just want to make everybody aware of
I'm a light weight rider of 130 lbs (60kg) and I was using a 159 Mutant type board in that range,
to squeeze the low end performance.
When it reached 14 mph I was able to go about 8 - 10 feet high according Cab people,
which was very surprising for a small kite of a 9m.
Yesterday I was out in a 10 -12 mph on the Rapture with the same Mutant and I could do some 6 - 8 feet hights.
What it boils down the Rapture 15m has a little better about 2 mph better low end than the Crossbow 9m.
