X2 18 or 16?

forum for kitesurfers


Postby Guest » Tue Jun 25, 2002 1:42 pm

I am looking to buy either a X2 18 or X2 16. I don't know which one to take.
At the moment I have an AERO 8 and an ARX 11.5, with a 155 Brunotti TT and a 185 AHD TT. my weight: 75 kg.

judging from my belly, i'd say: take the 16 - it goes better with the 11.5 ....

Judging from my P--is, I quote:

Nevertheless, I go for the 10-12-16
Don, Adam and Chris said that the
"perfect" quiver for riding between 7 and 32 knots was: 20 - 14 - 10. They said that other suitable quivers would be 18-12-8 and 16-10, there is no need to get sizes any closer than that unless you are a pro rider. The wind range for these kites is huge, so you can separate sizes further than with the ARX.
