1 kite won’t be good across that range. 2 kites would either be a 12 /9 or a 10 /7 depending on which end of the range is most common.

They’re all great! But yes, the 10 is one of our most popular sizes.

Mahadev, there is a lot of information on each of our kites on our product pages… each kite style is designed to meet different riding styles but if you are asking what is our most popular kite is it currently the Razor, though the Cypher is close behind. Again though, they are totally different kites from one another.

In terms of hang time, yes, as you go down in size the kites will fall from the sky faster. I love my 10m Razor for jumps but - given enough wind - will always prefer the 8m as it is a smaller more nimble kite but still big enough to get some really good jumps in with. @ 93 kgs you are almost my weight. I ride a 7/8/10 quiver of Razors with a Flite 15 for light wind days and a Mako 130 and a Surf Board for my 2x boards… with those boards and the kites I have chosen I am covered for any condition.

Mahadev, you will be well equipped with those kites for sure. The Rise is a beauty for air, plenty of hangtime!!

My personal quiver is 12m Razor for the better bottom end and faster turn in the lighter wind. followered by the 9m Rise for top end and better float/hang time. I am 90 kg and spend most time on the 12m with our winds normaly high teens low twenties
