We all know how confusing the sizes of the different makes are. :roll:
Hopefully one day we consumers are strong enough to tell the producers to use only ONE size (total m²).
But until then, here is a table to have a better overview:

You are right, now that you are mentioning it!
The Naish sizes are totally wrong! :oops:
I will look for a better one.

Was this "mistake" by purpose of Cabrinha!?!?! We'll never know...

I tried a Beginner-Kite: Cabrinha C 111, 8.5 qm, 2-liner, length of bar: 66 cm, from 2002. The leashes (mostly green and red) weren`t equal. The difference was between 5 and 7 cm. I would like to mention ist, `cause you can get involved into dangerous situations. So take care

the sizes are only one factor that bilt the power of the kite the wipika ab 8.4 =arx 9.5-10.5 and not 11+ ,the f-1 15.1 =arx 12.5-13 so dont make a mistake and check the kite wind range by your self
