Hi guys,
I have just bought a Rhino 16, which is the maximum wind range for this kite?
I'm 192cm tall and 90kg
Thank you

Depends on your experience level (and your board).

For your weight I would say around 20 knots.

Have fun!

Mike

yep, depends on your experience level (and your board).

But even a very experienced kitesurfer of 90kg on ideal material will have a hard time in 20 knots. And I doubt you're still having fun then.

i am about 73 kg and use a board which has a length of 147. i've had my rhino 16 out in 20 knots winds, and it's very scary - not for the faint hearted. i found that i'm just too overpowered if i take it out in winds over about 15 knots.

An experienced friend of mine who weights 90kg uses his Rhino in 15-22knots with a WT147.

Another guy I know who's about 84kg uses his in 13-18knots with a 6' directional.

I based my reply on the above.

Regards,

Mike

i can have a lot of fun in 10 knots. i haven't really had it out in much less than this, so i can't really comment on how it performs under 10 knots. i suspect, however, that it probably wouldn't be much fun.
