14-17 knots.. but often the windgusts drop or increase.. It's no problem holding it up to 20 knts. But then you're powered! ;)


What do you eat for breakfast ? :lol:

at 17kts I'm on my 7m, I'm 140lbs... maybe the wind here in Canada is a lot more powerful than in Sweden :lol: or maybe my built in wind meter is broke.

Be interested to know more about the 2006 20m Rhino?
Was it 4 or 5 line?
How did it compare to the fatter struts previously fitted?

Still looking? Got a Rhino2 18m I bought new in 2002. I'd keep it if I lived at the coast. It's a good kite if you know its limits (depower).

R6 20m is 5 line.
I remember the R2 20m was renowned for ripping in half when when flagging out. Did mine twice! Hope the 5th line sorted this.

Info on how this 5 line system works would be helpful???

Took my R6 20 out for the first time in minimum wind Sunday morning. Had a great time and was more than pleased with the power. Far far more power than my 13.5m Kahoona, but the range is totally different.
