How much do you weigh and what board do you use? I think the 12 m Rise would replace both unless you are a big dude. At one point I used the 12 and 16 m One as my big kites…but now I just use the 12m Rise as it has a great low end. If you are bigger than ~180 lbs (80 kg) I would say go with the 14. Good luck…

Hi Alex. I weigh 75 kg (165lbs) and I ride a 2008 12 Rise as my light wind kite. Its very enjoyable from the mid teens (MPH) to the low to mid 20’s. I also have an 8m that I ride when its 23+ (mph). So for my a 12,8 combo covers everything. I have not found the top end of the 8m yet, but thats only because it has not been anything more then 30mph in the last year for me.
