I'm looking for a new light-wind-kite. Has anybody already flown the X2 in 16sqm? I wonder if I need the 16, maybe the 14 is strong enough? I have about 90 kilos, so I can handle a big kite quite long.
Thanks for useful comments!

the only think I know is that the X2 in 16 will be as fast as the ARX 11.5. So with this speed it should be good for lighter winds. maybe the 14 could be enough.
I ride my 12 in winds of about 12 knts. It is ok, but I could need more pressure.
My weight is almost 90 kgs with a small 144 board. So the 14.o could be fine, but depending on you other kite iszes you should decide. I will get the 16.0, which is a great compbo with the 12.0
