It's the first big kite that really performs like a kite should.

This is what we hear everytime a new big kite is released. We heard it with, the 16.4 airblast, the 23.5 ARX, the 20 aero, the 15.5 2002 blacktip... Then we heard it with the 22m rhino1, then came the X2 and we heard it again...

Now we are hearing it yet again, this time I really hope it is true - but after previous let downs I am now a sceptic, once the stoke of people having new toys to play with dies down in a few weeks/months then we'll know for sure... After all the 20m x2 was really supposed to be a great lightwind kite, but the truth is out there now about that...


Ps, I don't like posting negative things, I really hope these kites work well, I'm ~100kg I sure could do with a really usable 20m kite!

No doubt. Go for it. The x2 20 flies better, faster and sweeter that a last year 15.
It doent feel like a big kite. New big ones are big at the beach and small in the air!!
Dont expect MUCH gain in low end. I m 185 lbs and ride powered up in 10 KT.
For 6 knot blasting we have to wait for 30 meters 04 kites.

I have a rhino2 20m I have surfed with it a few times already I am 90kg and ride a f-one 160 in 8 knonts I can ride the kite with out going down wind (but with out jumping and haveing fun.
in 10-12 knots the kite starts to work for me then I can jump normaly at 14knots I strted to be realy overpowerd (like surfing with a 16 rhino1 in 17-18 knots)the kite gives a lot of air time and high jumps about 4-5m (in 14knots)
