Yesterday I had a 13m C4 up on Treasure Mountain. I'm posting an early loop sequence so people can see how nicely it pulls powered loops. You can see how much lift I get from the moment the kite starts the loop all the way back over my head. I could land really soft on all of them. It definately yanks me harder than my Edge 2, and I spend a little more time with that weightless moment while the kite flys back up. It glides really well too, nice and lofty feeling. The gusty wind was a little more startling than my edge, but that often happens with an unfamiliar kite. I almost crashed it a couple times because it doesn't turn as well as my Edge when depowered, but still better than most kites. Cheers!

If I was too buy again, Id go 13 and 10.

13 is super for boost and hang time. I am progressing lots with it. Cant felt its turning speed at all.



My only concern with buying the 13 instead of the 12 is that I am worried the 13 will feel like a "big" kite to me instead of the 11m I demoed. You say that you can jump well on it, so it must still be a pretty fast kite? It doesn't feel slow and non-sporty to you? Please let me know.

I want to say yes the 13m feels sporty and fast. To me it feels lite and fast, but remember I spend most of my time around 9000ft. Kites feel faster in the thin air.

Anyone had a chance to compare the performance of the 10m or 11m C4 to the 12m or 13m sizes?

Hi, this is my first post :bye:
I'm italian excuse for my English, I will tried to be understandable :wink:
Some days ago I have tested the C4 12 but the wind was only 10 knots...
Immediately I have had a good feelig with the bar and it responds very smooth,
in the air the C4 is fast but not nervous and give a sensation like an hybrid kite
Unfortunately the condition wasn't good and the kite didn't truck me well
I work hard to go up wind (my weight is 65 kg and I used a Nobile 666 138cm)

Now I'm hesitant because I believed it was a tractor :?:
I would like to buy the C4 12 because it seems very good
but I 'm afraid that it doesn't work well for light-medium wind (12-20 knots)
and I didn't want a kite too big (13 and more..)

I repeat when I did the test, the wind it was very bad, I think 10-11 knots

What do you think? Is My test is reliable? :nono:

:bye:

So, you tried the 12m kite in 10 knots.
OK, no surprise, it was not enough wind, even if you are only 65kg.
:idea: Maybe you need to try it in 12 or 15 knots.
Personally, I think in a little more wind, it would be great.
So would most any other 12m kite!
10 knots just isn't very fun for most people.
For 10 knots, you probably want a flat shape kite in a bigger size.
You could probably still hold on to a 13m or 14m until 18 or 20 knots, and it would get you going earlier.
But I would stick with the 12 and wait until the wind comes up just a couple of knots.

you will never regret having the extra size up when you're talking about light winds. i'm 65kg and i'd go with a 13 or 14m

why wait for the wind to pick up when you could be out riding

Yes you are right,

but I'm looking for a kite to use in a spot where the common condition is 13-20 knots, not proper light wind
In my spot size 11,12,13 are ordinary..

Until now I kiting with a Ozone light 12 2008 or a Nobile N62 11 and for a beginner they are very good in this condition. When the wind is stronger I have a 9.

Now I'm intermediate and I would like an high performance kite

In reality I'm not sure about the efficiency of the C4,

It truck very well or not??? :-?
