I rode the 16 One for the first time today in very marginal conditons - here is the graph:
http://www.ikitesurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=138&siteID=225

I was riding from around 3:30 until 4:30. I weigh 150 lbs and was on the Mako board. Only one other rider was staying upwind - he has about 40lbs on me but was riding a 26m Gaastra with a 6’2 x 20” wide directional. The 16 One feels much the like the 12 One but with a lot more low end power. It is incredibly smooth, and turns very well - bar pressure did not seem to be any more than with the 12 One.  It allowed me to ride a small kiteboard in conditions where I normally would have had to use a big floaty surfboard.

Or, a little photo would also be cool.  I’m waiting on delivery of my new 16m One, & can hardly stand it.

BTW, what’s the color scheme on the new 16m’s?

New colors are shown here - http://www.oceanrodeo.com/one.html .

Red, yellow, green, blue and black. :wink:

Both kites are fast and have great low end - they are just very different. You need to select based on your style of riding, or, if maximum range is most important, go with the One.
