Hi there ntountou, I have been lucky enough to spend some good time on both the 9m Cypher and the 10m Razor. It depends what riding style you are after, both the 2012 models have a lot less bar pressure in my opinion. Also i have found with both kites there is a lot less back stall than the 2011 models, the Razor is a great kite, it works for everything, its unhooked performance is great and provides great pop for freestyle moves. Dom Moore, the European Manager will be able to give you alot better idea of how these kites work in the waves, but what I personally have seen and heard from Dom, the Razor is his kite of choice, with its wind range, stability, and all round great range.
Myself I am a freestyle rider, and find it hard to choose between the 2 kites, the Cypher is aimed for at the wakestyle side of the sport, but i think the Razor matches the Cypher for unhooked ability, and the Razor deffinitely takes the lead when it comes to big kiteloops! Although the Cypher does the job!
Both have light bar pressure but there won’t be a moment when you don’t know where the kite is or what it’s up to!
My best advice, get hold of your local dealer and get yourself on both of these kites and see what you think for yourself!
But beware I’m sure you’ll love them both, so be prepared for a tough decision!
