Can you tell more about wind range, particurlarly for the 9. At the moment, I use the R5 9 and I find the top end exceptional (around 40 kt gust for 80 kg).
40 knots??? your wind is different than ours...
About Rhino05 and Vegas05 grunt, it has as much as i want...
R06 must be really sweet if it is as i am imagining.
It is not constant 40kt but 40kt gusts in the south of France (dry wind is less powerful). And the max for the 12 R5 is more than 30 kt gusts... I ride my R5 9 when others use 6/7 sqm and my 12 R5 when others use 9/8 sqm.
