I weigh 75 kg, ride a Thorn129. In about 15 knots, I was well powered on the 9 and speeding upwind. I'd say 12-13 knots is very realistic if you work the kite a bit.

And yes, the kite just sits up there totally powerless. Just grab the bar, and it won't even get wet.

calling low end usability is too dependent on rider skill and control, that and the fact that most guys don't know 10 from 30k.


i'm not knocking the guys calling 12k, in fact thanks for the great referals guys, just don't expect the 9m to be your light wind kite...

I´m getting myself a 9 for highwinds.
But hey, we´re talking a 9 here! I didn´t expect to get away, and be well powered in 15 knots! I´d say the lowendcapability is a nice bonus :thumb:
